I grew up in a small city about an hour north of San Francisco - in California's wine region. I am now a student in Cambridge, Massachusetts (basically, Boston), studying mechanical engineering. Though I study science, I also love art and music, literature, languages, etc. My main motivation in studying engineering, and art, is the desire and passion for creating something new. I love meeting new people and having new experiences, and am excited to finally have the chance to travel, which I've always loved.
