What makes a student’s experience at ACDS distinctive from other schools?
The ACDS Outdoor Ed program continually blows my mind. I love how ACDS places so much value and emphasis on nature, the mountains, and exploring the world from ouside of your comfort zone.
A personal accomplishment you’re proud of?
I trained for seven marathons (although I ran just six of them).
What’s your Achilles’ heel?
Where would you be if you weren’t in Aspen?
I considered moving to Alaska after college. If I ever feel like I need to live somewhere even more remote than Aspen, I’m heading up there.
