I am a senior at Humboldt State University, though it is my first year 'in the trees' as I transfered from San Diego State University where I studied mechanical engineering for three years. I am now majoring in environmental sciences with a focus on energy and climate change. My passion is figuring out how things work which was why I originally pursued engineering. I then realized that I wasn't learning about how the things I was interested worked so I looked for what interests me. It turns out that its the natural world and addressing the biggest problems the human race will foreseeably face, which is precisely why I moved to Humboldt to pursue the program I am.
