Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm a Bioengineering: Biosytems major hoping to have an area study in Literature and possibly minor in Linguistics!

This is my first year teaching at Splash and my only class is about esports history. I like playing video games in my free time, but I'm not nearly good enough to go to a professional level.
