I am a student at the University of Washington. I am majoring in Comparative History of Ideas. I volunteer with the Civil Air Patrol and participate in aerial search and rescue where I get to go fly in small planes and search for downed pilots. At the UW I am involved with the Swing Kids and the Capture the Flag Warriors. In the winter time i am a big time snow skier. This summer I am going to Rome Italy to study abroad for the CHID program. I am going to be living in Italy for 68 days. My long term plans are to graduate from UW in 2007 to go to Grad school and to become a history professor with either my Masters degree or my doctorate.
