When not at camp: I study music in school. I fish a lot. Let's see what else, I teach people guitar and I hike in the woods.

How'd you get into guitar? I was 8 years old and asked my mom if I could play, I don't really remember why. I like it because you can play any style of music on a guitar, there are no boundaries. It's like a swiss army knife.

Who is one of your biggest role models? I guess my Tae Kwon Doe teacher. He taught me how to gain from losing and how to see the gift in failure. He also taught me how to really focus on something and embrace the challenges.

Did you go to camp as a kid? I didn't go to this camp as a kid, but I did go to a really big nature camp. We did a lot of outdoorsy activities like fishing and hiking. It was always great to get away from the city for a little while though.
