Dahlin Lutz

Exercise Science Writing Tutor

About Me

Dahlin grew up in a military family moving around, but calls Arizona home. He’s finishing up his last two semesters and is majoring in exercise science while pursuing a career in medicine. After graduation, he wants to go to medical school so he can graduate again later because nothing sounds quite as good as 9 more years of school. He enjoys writing in a quiet environment where he can focus and listen to his music. You can normally find him writing specifically about sports medicine related topics (athlete steroid use is a favorite), or other science-y things, along with any kind of analysis about the human condition, and every once in a while enjoys writing a nice poem when he feels inspired.
