Claro Bacaltos

Claro Bacaltos

Lao is a jack of all trades in the journalism program.  He enjoys writing articles, taking photographs, and talking to people at Shadow Ridge.  He always says "yes" when asked to do something and most importantly, he always has a smile on his face.  He is especially skilled in anything technological and members of The Lariat wouldn't be surprised if Lao had something to do with the SpaceX program.
