Hometown: Los Gatos, California
College: Pitzer in Claremont, California
I grew up in the town of Los Gatos. There, went to elementary school and discovered soccer as a kindergartener. I also enjoyed occasional week long vacations taken off school for camping or white water rafting trips with my family. The high school I ended up attending was in Palo Alto. There, I sang in musicals and played on the soccer team. I decided to take a gap year, after four years at a very college-driven high school, and completed a NOLS semester in the Rockies complete with sections on mountaineering, kayaking and canoeing, canyoneering and snow camping. I then got an internship organic gardening on a ranch in the beautiful Orleans in Humboldt, CA, milking goats, and growing my own food. I’ve just completed my first year at Pitzer College and am excited to get back to the back country.
