I have been passionate about birding and birds in general since the age of 4. Now 18, I’ve spent the last few years managing the never-ending days that encompass high school, furthering my birding skills, and fighting cancer. Diagnosed with Osteosarcoma at the age of 12, I’ve spent the past five years undergoing numerous therapies, clinical trials, and surgeries, all in search of a cure. Although my disease persists, I will never stop fighting, nor lose sight of a life free of this disease.
Outside of birding, I enjoy following my favorite sports teams (including the Boston Red Sox, Indiana Pacers, New York Rangers, Miami Dolphins, and SC Napoli), chilling out with friends, photography, music, and travel.
