Growing up I always had a love for nature, and spent much of my time as a kid playing outside. Ever since I was young, I’ve had a particularly affinity for the less appreciated creatures of the world: bugs, toads, snakes, etc. It was always my goal to convince those around me that these animals were to be admired, not feared. It’s a goal I still hold onto today, and strive to achieve through education and exposure.
In school I’ve always gravitated towards science and art, gaining experience with scientific research through St. Lawrence University.
