I am currently 21 and finishing my first quarter at Western Washington University. I am an undergraduate student studying 'Critical Theory' through English and Philosophy. Prior to enrollment, I studied film production at Northwest Film School and earned an associate's degree at Whatcom Community College with transferred credits from Loyola Marymount University and from Portland State University through Carpe Diem International.

In between Los Angeles and my return to the Northwest, I traveled twice to the South Pacific, once to New Zealand for a month, and then again to Fiji, Australia, and New Zealand for three-months. The first trip, I studied New Zealand film and the history and culture of the Maori people. The second trip, I backpacked with a small group of students working on a variety of community and environmental service projects and we were involved in leadership and outdoor training. I was taught of the native Fijian, Maori, and Aboriginal cultures through first hand experiences, and in some cases, I found myself living among them, working together on community projects and participating in their cultural traditions. More recently I was fortunate enough to continue north and experienced Indonesian culture first hand last winter through my parent's private business that works to support local art from Java, Sumatra, Bali, Sumba, and Timor.

With every experience, I am increasingly inspired by the variety of cultural and historical values encountered. I often find myself in a deep reflection of my own. Every time I return home, I am compelled to find new ways to share such experiences, working towards capturing stories and moments when the opportunities present themselves. In response to such inspirational stirs of thought, I began looking to film and literature to provide a new insight into my greatest desires, to be in a constant state of reevaluating the world and to provide necessary assistance where and when appropriate. Since then, I have been working to make myself available to opportunities such as this.

This project presented itself to me a few months ago. There was no hesitation in my response when I was asked to join. I know both Zach and Sean from high school and I have briefly met Chris. I have not been to South America and I only speak a little Spanish, but I am confident the group's skills and experiences will balance out.

My personal life consists primarily of playing music, making short films, and exploring new mediums of art. I enjoy reading both modern and classical literature, listening to live music, watching movies, and exploring the great northwest.

I am grateful for the support going into this project and I feel very fortunate to be a part.
