I received a BA in Sociology from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2000 where I was vice president of the Sociology Honors Society.  My studies focused on deviance/crime and the sociology of education.

I graduated as a valedictorian from Green Mountain High School in Lakewood, Colorado  in 1994.  I participated in several activities, including the back-to-back state champion Science Olympiad team, Key Club and various academic competitions.
