I am a fifth year graduate student in Astronomy at UCLA. Originially from San Diego, CA, I also completed my Bachelor's degree at UCLA. Now, I am working with Professors Andrea Ghez and Mark Morris on young star science in the Galactic Center and Adaptive Optics methodology.

When I'm not studying, teaching, doing outreach, or doing research, I enjoy reading, photography, music, films, cooking, traveling, video games, archery, softball, dodgeball, and watching various sports. Along with fellow graduate student Shane Frewen, I am one of the coordinators for Astronomy Live!, the outreach group put together by UCLA Astronomy graduate students.
