About Me: I got my first taste of research while I got my first taste of fatherhood. I was born in Dallas Texas, but moved to Olathe Kansas at a young age. I found my home in chemistry and the Ukanteach program. I hope to pursue a master’s of education after I graduate, and would like to eventually get a Ph.D in education.
