Brief Biographical Sketch:

I study Geology in the Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Science department with a secondary focus on ecology. Origami (specifically, modular origami) has been a lifetime hobby of mine and I've done at least one large project per year while at MIT. Some of my work was featured last spring in the Origamit showcase at the MIT Museum.
