I was born and raised in Doylestown, PA a small town in the suburbs of Philadelphia. I became involved in Cub Scouts at a young age which ultimately kindled my love of the outdoors and nature as a whole. It was also at a young age that I developed a fascination for computers and math always seeing my father working on them. It was not until my later years when these interests really began to flourish. Becoming a Boy Scout allowed my love for nature to grow stronger, taking math classes in high school challenged me to think differently, and the ability to take computer science classes finally gave me the necessary resources to delve into computer science. In high school I also became a member of the swim team which always kept me on my toes.
