I grew up in the Ohio River town of Russell, Kentucky, on the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. After high school, I wanted to explore urban life, so I opted for Northwestern University and the big city of Chicago. During the winter of my sophomore year, I joined Stoddart Group. I have since worked on various projects including water soluble rotaxanes and pseudorotaxanes. I am currently working on nanovalves for malaria theranostics and several varieties of catenanes. I also enjoy making miniature pots, swimming, and playing guitar.
