I was born and raised in Wyoming. I lived the ranch life: hard work, sweat, outdoors, machinery and cows! Agriculture will always have a place in my heart. I look to make this world a better, more sustainable place!

I'm a fun, hardworking kid from Abuquerque, New Mexico who is lucky enough to be part of the Stanford Class of 2020! I was accepted despite average GPA, Scores, Transcripts, etc. Nothing that I did was exemplary, but I did put a lot of time into my essays
