I am a graduate student working and studying astronomy in Los Angeles. I am originally from upstate New York, so I am trying to see as much of the west coast as I can while I am here for the next few years! In my free time, I play in a samba music group, on one of the big drums the back. I am also beginning to have fun with cooking. My favorite meals that I've made so far: sriracha steak lettuce wraps and chicken peanut curry.
