Teacher and mentors who have altered my life: My high school biology teacher, Mr. Raymond Pfriem, showed me how much I could love biochemistry with his enthusiasm for science. My graduate school advisor, Dr. Daniel Bochar, taught me more than I could ever have expected and cemented my love for academic science.

In my time off, I enjoy: Playing baseball and ice hockey, exploring Michigan, and spending time outdoors.

What profession, other than your own, would you enjoy? Long haul trucking, owner-operator of a landscaping company, or a mechanical or structural engineer.
