Major: Applied ComputingEthan-web

What I love about the WaCC: I am eager to help others in their writing and expression of their thoughts. I grew up lacking many key social skills and understanding of who I am. While I confess to not being perfect, writing became one of my tools of deconstructing the world around me. I want to help others realize how powerful and free the English language truly is by serving as a joyful, encouraging, and passionate example in tutoring.

My other interests: I am a musician and a composer currently working on my first album. I love video games and video game music. I have also dabbled in videography, photography, journaling, and community organizing. I read about Mediterranean history, Japanese language, and music theory in my free time

What I want to do in the future: I would like to work in online education systems specifically as a researcher to continue to grow the field.
