Brief Biographical Sketch:

In August, 2008, I was transplanted from Chicago, Illinois (my home for the previous 18 years) to the fifth floor of the east parallel of the East Campus dormitory here at MIT, where I've been living ever since. My days are filled with goofing around with my hallmates, playing videogames, cooking, riding horses, and slightly less sleep than I would like. I'm majoring in 6-3 (computer science) and focusing mainly on artificial intelligence and theoretical computer science than anything that's realistically practical in the field.
