I started riding at age 10 with the United States Pony Club, Riverside Hills Chapter. At 14, I was privileged to own a horse, Titan (pictured on left). Titan was a 16.3 hd Dutch WB x Thoroughbred gelding whom I took to Stanford with me as an undergraduate. I subsequently competed as a member of the Stanford Equestrian Team for both its huntseat and dressage teams. In 2011, I was named to the Second Team IHSA National All-Academic Award. I currently lease a horse and ride weekly in Portola Valley/Los Altos Hills.
Birds have fascinated me since I was very young. I have traveled to southeast Arizona, Costa Rica, and the Galapagos specifically to observe avian behavior and diversity. My most memorable sightings would be the Elegant Trogon at age 12 or the Resplendent Quetzal at age 18. I continue to go on birdwatching trips with the Stanford Birdwatching Club and/or when I travel. In 2018, I began volunteering my time as an Apprentice Hawk Bander at the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory, where I am being trained to capture and handle wild birds of prey for conservation research studies.
I am a lifestyle and fitness model for print and commercial work. In 2014, I became represented by JE Model and Talent Management, a top agency in San Francisco. Some of my credits include: Nike, TRX, and Salesforce. Lifestyle Portfolio | Fitness Portfolio
