About Me

I am from Overland Park, Kansas. About Overland Park, Kansas: In 2012, the Money Magazine rated Overland Park the 7th best city to live in the United States.  Overland Park has also consistently ranked in the top 10 of CNN/Money and Money magazine's 100 Best Cities to Live in the US.

I am interested in sports, debate and forensics, and travelling. I have traveled to Canada, France, Italy, Mexico, Monaco, UK, and many of the Caribbean islands.

I have won a variety of awards in debate and forensics, including a trip to the national competitions during the past three years. In fall 2010, I was qualified for both the National Forensics League (NFL) tournament (to be held in Dallas, TX, in June 2011) and for the Catholic Forensics League Grand National Tournament (to be held in May 2011 in Washington, DC).

One of my parents is a professor at KU and the other one is a researcher at the Children's Mercy Hospital.

I have a younger brother Seena. Below are a few recent photos of Seena and I. As you can see, he is very competitive with me. He chose to be a LeBron James fan only because I am a Kobe Bryant fan.
