Activities & Interests

As an aerospace engineer, I greatly appreciate both space and aviation and could see myself working in either industry. Ultimately, I'd like to take on a leadership role working in project management or mission control in some capacity.
As for hobbies, I am very active in sports (namely soccer and surfing) and am very musically inclined (playing a range of instruments from clarinet to percussion to guitar).
