I was born on December 26, 1984, and can't remember most of my childhood. I have lived in various suburbs around Cleveland, Ohio, and attended various appropriate schools. I entered Hawken School ("where each generation introduces its successor to a higher plane of life") as a freshman and learned to love science fiction, poetry, non-gory murder mysteries, fencing, Baroque art, singing, technical theater, sarcasm, math and physics. I am an enthusiastic but strikingly unskilled Ultimate Frisbee player. My life is firmly grounded on my faith, despite my habitual sarcasm. I will enter Harvard in September and plan to major in physics. After graduation, I plan to enter an Episcopal seminary and be ordained as a priest.
