About Me


Let me introduce myself! My name is Sam and I'm currently pursuing a B.Sc. in Cell, Developmental, and Molecular Biology at UCLA, on the pre-medical track in aims of becoming a physician-researcher. Although I spend most of my time working on academia, I am also an educator at a start up called Numerade , where I post detailed solutions to common academic textbooks to help bridge the gap in education!

Some of my hobbies include coding, playing games, keeping tabs on current events, and recently, investing in the stock market. Anyways, enough about me. If you have any questions or would like to get a copy of my resume, please shoot me an email through the contact section of my website.
