Brief Biographical Sketch:


My name is Nathan and I'm from Atlanta, Georgia. Some of the most interesting ideas I've encountered have had to do with how we learn and how we play games.

I'm a big fan of all varieties of chess, video games, ocean documentaries, music, anime, food, and naps.

Career wise, I'm interested in pursuing a career in finance. I'd love to see you in my class!
