Stefan is, first and foremost, passionate about cross-disciplinary education. He sees himself as a scientist, performer, communicator, and educator all equally. He graduated from Swarthmore College with degrees in Astrophysics and Theatre; he then continued on to acquire his Master’s in Medical Physics from Columbia University. He excels at researching, synthesizing, and explaining complex ideas and believes the ability of non-experts to access advanced concepts is grossly underestimated. Stefan is no stranger to standardized test struggles, having to take the ACT, SAT, and GRE each twice to achieve the scores he needed. His personal mission is to show that everyone is artistically and scientifically capable.
