I have been playing soccer ever since the first grade. I played in multiple clubs growing up as well as for my highschool team. I also enjoyed my time playing competitive soccer in undergrad at Grinnell College. I am now lucky enough to continue playing with the Ames Hurricanes FC where I help out by serving on the committee and being a team captain while participating in many scrimmages and league games year round.


I spent a semester abroad my junior year of undergrad in Aix-en-Provence. While there I also had the opportunity to visit Spain, Italy (Florence, Rome, Cinque Terre), Scotland (St. Andrews, Stirling, Edinburgh) and parts of France including Paris, Marseille, Nice, Corsica and various small villages in southern France. I loved my time traveling there and ever since I have always been looking for chances to go back! So far I have made it back to Europe twice --- once to Rome for a conference, and another time I spent a month traveling in France, Spain, Germany, and England visiting friends who were studying out there.

New Zealand

I was fortunate enough to spend three weeks in New Zealand with my family over winter break (Dec 2014-Jan 2015). We traveled all over both the north and south islands. It is a trip I will never forget.


Ever year my extended family (on my dad's side) used to get together for one week in the summer. It was always one of the highlights of the year for me. The photo below includes just some of the Curley family during a reunion in Boone, North Carolina.


I've been playing piano since I was around four years old. Although I took a bit of a break from playing in college --- where I particpated in a percussion ensemble instead --- I recently received my own digital piano and have greatly enjoyed getting back into playing.
