Great music, delicious food, and breathtaking views bring out the best in me. For the past six years, I've worked as a caregiver and camp staff for people with special needs, and that has a huge place in my heart. I am ambitious and I need to be; I've got lives to change!

Favorite Quote: "The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do."

I believe in keeping a good sense of humor because you should never take life TOO seriously. I love chocolate, unicorn fish (google narwhal, they're a thing), the methods of rationality, and the blood of my enemies - though I will settle for their tears in most circumstances.

Music and entrepreneurship are two of my greatest life influences. Both bring with them endless challenges as well as intellectual and creative fulfillment. As a KEY student, I am going to share these passions with others through the creation of the ROCappella Music Festival. Want to know more? Stay tuned!

When I'm not jumping up and down for After Hours, I am playing trombone in the UR Pep Band, building bio-sand filters for Engineers Without Borders, and studying in Carson Library. I am proficient with several instruments including the rap air horn and my favorite season of Rochester is cold.

Favorite Quote: "Hold on to your divine blush, your innate rosy magic, or end up brown. Once you're brown, you'll find that you're blue. As blue as indigo. And you know what that means: Indigo. Indigoing. Indigone." - Tom Robbins

I can be easily bribed with good Mexican food.

Favorite Quote: "I HATE endings." - The Doctor

I sang a cappella in high school in a group called "Mixed Nuts," and was super excited to be able to continue at Rochester! When not singing with After Hours, I love to play with robots, geek out about Apple products, and listen to anything by Sam Smith, Adele, or Pink. About 30 screaming teenage girls and I actually met Sam Smith outside one of his concerts; it was one of my happiest moments.

One of my favorite things, apart from music, is traveling. I've been to 5 different countries and all over the United States. There's nothing quite like feeling overwhelmed by the beauty of a different culture and place.

Aside from Chipotle burritos, I love taking photos at the beach, producing videos, and hacking together the occasional website (like this one!). On campus, you can often find me working at the Rettner Hall help desk or rehearsing with the rest of the fAHmily.

Favorite Quote: "Courage is generosity of the highest order." - C.C. Colton

I’ve got four fabulous siblings and two loving parents who surprise me with their potential almost as much as their belief in mine. I’m crazy about horses and coffee, and happy to talk your ear off. I wish to be perpetually immersed in diverse and confusing environments. After Hours is my outlet to offer the world beautiful music with beautiful people!
