Welcome to my page! My name is Murphy, and I’m a Fisheries and Wildlife Senior.  The things I love: Christ, the outdoors, and my friends and family.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          


Coat of arms interpretation: I would say that I am an aspiring naturalist who is truly obsessed with fish.  Born in Cleveland but raised in Westerville Ohio meant that I’ve grown up running away from home to pursue my outdoorsy passions. I spent my summers as a child running around Alum Creek park, building forts, fishing, hiking, foraging, and camping.  When I wasn’t exploring the creek, I was high up in the trees with my bow, waiting for the buck of a lifetime.  My love of the outdoors has effected nearly every aspect of my life: my hobbies, education, and career all revolve around the pursuit to learn more about the world around me.  I’m only in this class because I have to be, but nonetheless I am excited to see what ways this course will help enhance my knowledge of the natural world.
