About me: I enjoy being active in Cleveland and the surrounding outdoors. I enjoy running, bicycling and riding vintage motorcycles. I enjoy making vegetarian food and playing the carillon (bells) on the Case campus and spending time with the great community that is Case students and faculty.

Comment about the MSTP program: The MSTP at Case is truly a family and the doors are open here for you to pursue whatever is most interesting to you. Everyone wants you to succeed! We have fun inside and outside of the lab/classroom. My classmates in the program are an important part of my Cleveland family and I look forward to spending the coming years with them.
