Check out an interview I did with the Wesleyan Newsletter here.

I help organize Astronomy on Tap ATX, a monthly free public event presenting astronomy talks in a bar. Here is my talk from December 2017:

I enjoy hiking and camping in what little free time I have. I also dabble in astrophotography. Below are a few pictures I took. (More to come, including pictures of the recent solar eclipse from Grand Teton National Park!)

A movie of some (not that great) startrails I made at McDonald observatory.

A time-lapse I took at the Star and Planet formation in the South West 2 (SPF2) Conference at the Biosphere 2 in Arizona.

I caught the International Space Station transiting the sun just north of Austin, TX on the morning of November 4, 2018.

Rowing

In High School, at Camp Randall Rowing Club, and in college, at Wesleyan University, I rowed competitively. In my Junior and Senior year of college I sat stroke seat of the 2nd Varsity 8+ at the New England Rowing Championships where we finished 3rd both years. Also in my senior year I sat 2 seat of our 1st varsity 8+ at the Head of the Charles Regatta and finished 5th in the Collegiate 8+ event. In high school I traveled to US Rowing Youth National championships 3 years in a row to compete in the light weight 4+ event. My junior year we finished 4th in the nation.
