I am a senior Music Education major at Xavier University with an interest in math, physics, philosophy, life, and pretty much the whole world. I grew up in Beach Park, IL and as a middle child in a family of six. I attribute my large appetite for life to my dad, who is huge proponent of the Boy Scouts, and my mom, who is the kindest, sweetest, most loving person in the world.
Education and learning. Seeing the world not as compartmentalized subjects, but as one interconnected, interdependent world. Connecting seemingly different subjects and people. Misperceptions.
We are all one world. Interconnected, interdependent, spiderwebed in a network of thoughts, feelings, and actions. There is not one thing that can be defined as isolated. People, environments, subjects of study, or even ideas: we are all one world.
Higher Education. Music theory. Math. Technology! Innovations that will change the world.
Ukulele. Ocarina. Python. Any Final Fantasy game.
I was first exposed to TED my freshman year in college (2009) when the freshman music major seminar watched "Music and Passion" by Benjamin Zander. Ever since that video I have been hooked: watching talk after talk and sharing the videos to just the people who I think would like the talks as well. The passion I have for TED and TEDx pinnacled January of 2012 when I became one of the four core organizers of the very first TEDxXavierUniversity.
