Class of 2015 - Major: Psychology

Other Activities: Mock, Trial, Theatre, Mock Trial, occasionally make funny videos for the internet.

Fun Fact: One summer, many many moons ago, I learned the Brazilian martial art of Capoeira. Haven't practiced it since, and as such have forgotten pretty much everything. Fun while it lasted, though. The berimbau is a cool instrument, too.

About Me: I enjoy blathering on and on about myself as much as the next chap, but really there doesn't appear to be a whole lot for me to say. I enjoy performing, thus I enjoy mock trial. If acting, or debate, or law appeal to you then you'd probably enjoy it as well!

Marshall's Awards:

All-Region Witness (15/20 Ranks)
