Undergraduate: Emory University, BS in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology
Hometown: Memphis, TN
Hobbies/Interests: You can 8 times of out 10 find me in the kitchen cooking – especially gravitating towards Cantonese and Southern flavors. Those other times, my wife and I are locally exploring Midtown with our puppy, Dooley, or traveling to faraway lands together.
