Mechanical Engineering Miami, FL Being from Miami, Perry has spent a lot of time out on the water. As such, he really enjoys water sports such as (actual) surfing, sailing, scuba diving, etc. He is also an avid fan of Formula 1 racing and Counter Strike: Global Offensive. Other hobbies include playing the guitar, photography, cooking, and beekeeping! Perry has completed two SURFs since moving to Pasadena: one with Professor Guillaume Blanquart and another with Professor Chiara Daraio. "I would say that patience and perseverance are very important when it comes to finding a SURF," Perry advises. "Sometimes you have to wait quite a while for responses and/or be willing to send follow-ups to demonstrate continued interest."
