I am a pre-med student who hopes to one day be a kick ass medical practitioner, and not perpetuate abilism, heterosexism, sexism, racism, classism, or any other "ism" out there. I am thinking about a major in Biology with an emphasis in physiology, along with minors in women's studies minor and disability studies. I am a co-facilitator along with Ms. Ashley Mog of QTIIG (Queer women and Transgender Individuals Interest group), and spend the rest of my time eating, sleeping, working for BioNeuronics, and studying.

Director of Visual Arts: Owen Taylor

I'm currently a senior majoring in Interdisciplinary Visual Arts (focusing on Computer Animation) and currently I have plans to get my Masters in Fine Arts at the University of Washington. The main reason why I am involved in DASA has to do with my own disability challenges in achieving my academic goals. My goal as the Director of Visual Arts is to produce quality quarterly publications that will draw more individuals to our advocacy efforts.

I am best described as an educational researcher trapped in a Computer Science PhD program. My interests include accessible technology, reading, and human-computer interaction, and my intended thesis will be on computer-based accommodations for learners with reading disabiltiies. When not contemplating world domination schemes, I volunteer as an adult basic education tutor at Literacy Source.
