Hometown: Lincoln, Massachusetts
College: Colorado College

During the spring of 2018, I worked on a project studying the cyclical nature of poverty and malaria in Nigeria due in part to the nation’s governmental corruption.

Originally from Lincoln, Massachusetts, I am a junior at Colorado College where I study global health and political science. At CC, I am a member of the men’s lacrosse team and a residential advisor in a freshman and sophomore dorm. Last season, our lacrosse team made it to the NCAA tournament. Before CC, I attended Northfield Mount Hermon, where I was the captain of crew and lacrosse both my junior and senior years and a member of the all-male a capella group. In my free time, I enjoy skiing and hiking. Before leading for Overland, I spent many summers lobster fishing on the coast of Maine.

In 2017, I led Berkshire Adventure and Blue Ridge Explorer, and in 2018, I led Rocky Mountain Explorer. A three-time Overland student, I participated in Northwest Explorer, High Sierra Explorer and Alpine Challenge. My summers at Overland have taught me about the power of community and collective effort. As a leader, I foster this positive and supportive environment for my students.
