Brief Biographical Sketch:

In high school, I spent an obscene amount of time eating chocolate and learning about chemistry. Now, as an MIT Freshman, I've continued the tradition (only the chemistry is a little more stressful). It is time for me to help continue the legacy.
Since Chocolate Sciences is not an MIT major, I'm deciding between a few (dozen) potential courses. I've also joined the Varsity Sailing team and am (hopefully!) doing research for Aerospace Corporations.
I'll leave you with the most significant opinion I've had in my 18 years on this planet...the chocolate hierarchy goes: Dark, Milk, White.
