About Me


I was born and raised on the Big Island of Hawai`i and moved to O’ahu in the summer of 2008 to pursue my PhD in astronomy.  My current research involves working with Karen Meech, where I am studying Main Belt Comets and astrobiology.

Aside from being a stargazer, I have a strong passion for plants and animals.  When I have time, I enjoy hiking, swimming and being outdoors.  Some might say that my favorite hobby is to sleep, and I can’t really argue against that.
