Francis was born in Mountain View, California but was raised in Foster City, where he became an eagle scout (troop 175). Although he misses tackling people in football pads during his high school days, he enjoys rowing in the Cal Dragon Boat team
at UC Berkeley. Also, he enjoys playing the viola and violin in a local orchestra with his mom. In his spare time he enjoys making cheesy poems and sending them to people so they can read it; however, he would prefer to read them out loud to people.
He is a fourth year, dual majoring in Linguistics and Chemistry. The quantitative aspect of linguistics intrigues him while the qualitative aspect of organic chemistry has really attracted his attention and one day he wishes to enter a food eating competition.
