ExperienceWorking with disabled and challenged children doing homework and regular evening activities for paid employment. I've taken a wide range of classes constituting over 100 credit hours at my junior college in the Bay Area before transferring to UC Boulder in Fall 2011. I've been in several major theater productions, dance performances, and choral groups since an early age. When I was younger I had an emphasized focus on outdoors and native american living techniques. I am a writer and musician and consider them equally important to my academics. I've also pursued Vipassana meditation to help hone my focusing abilities; I've been diagnosed with attention-deficit and have used yoga and meditation rather than medication to strengthen my competence in academic and work ethic. My academic goals are a double major BA in Astronomy and English: Creative Writing. I am an amateur astronomer as well.
HobbiesI've been an avid participant in my educational path since I was very young. Where most were uninterested I was routinely fascinated and enjoy finding out how to impart appreciable perspectives for otherwise mundanely-taught subjects. My childhood was spent mostly outdoors and I try to emphasize the appreciation of finer things because of this. I've always been critical of the education system, I was not an academically aggressive student, preferring to dream on things quite a bit. I was trained on classical piano until age 14, then I learned Jazz/Rock/Pop Piano in high school in Jazz Band. I was a dancer and actor in high school and at Santa Rosa Junior College. My focus academically has been Creative Writing and Astronomy with side interests in Musical Theater, Sciences, Piano, Welding, Teaching and American Literature. I've worked blue collar jobs and traveled with a backpack in New Zealand and Thailand in what I call a personal rediscovery of my own curiosity. In our pursuit of creating good students I feel the best approach is two-fold: 1) Blow on the embers of the students imagination constantly and 2) Instill the focus and work ethic necessary to achieve one's personal goals.
