I've lived in a variety of cities and states.
I was born in Charleston, SC.
I briefly lived in Atlanta, GA as a toddler. (My brother Tyler was born there.)
I lived in Hilton Head Island, SC throughout elementary school and the first half of middle school. (My brother Noah was born there.)
I lived in Ponte Vedra, FL for the second half of middle school.
I moved to Hummelstown, PA before high school.
I attended Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, PA for my undergraduate career.
I have lived in Columbia, SC since August 2019, where I am a third generation University of South Carolina (USC) Gamecock!
My parents met at USC, where they both earned their bachelors degrees.
My brother, Tyler, completed both his bachelors and masters degrees in hospitality management at USC in 2018.
I got married on August 6, 2022 to Meagan Cobb (now Meagan Heath), a PhD candidate in Spanish at USC.
My biggest non-academic interest is baseball!
I played baseball from the time I was four years old through the end of high school.
In high school I mostly played second base, shortstop, and third base, although I also played pitcher and catcher when I was younger.
My favorite Major League Baseball (MLB) teams are the Philadelphia Phillies and Boston Red Sox.
I'm a big fan of sabermetrics and would love to continue learning more about them.
I dream of attending a game at each of the 30 MLB stadiums; currently, I've been to 16 and have 14 more to go. Here are the ones that I've been to, along with the corresponding team for each (in alphabetical order by team name).

Oriole Park at Camden Yards (Baltimore Orioles)
Fenway Park (Boston Red Sox)
Wrigley Field (Chicago Cubs)
Guaranteed Rate Field (Chicago White Sox)
Progressive Field (Cleveland Guardians)
Coors Field (Colorado Rockies)

Citizens Bank Park (Philadelphia Phillies)
PNC Park (Pittsburgh Pirates)
Citi Field (New York Mets)
Yankee Stadium (New York Yankees)

Although I cannot make music very well, I enjoy listening to it; when I'm not socializing, you will usually find me with headphones on. Here are some of my favorite artists (in alphabetical order).
