Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hi! I'm currently a senior here at Princeton from San Jose, CA, and I'm excited to teach for Splash again this year! When I was a young teen, I was sent to the Stanford Splash program with my younger brother and had a blast. This inspired me to become a teacher for this program and pass on the Splash experience to a new generation of young high schoolers.
