Epithelium58, also known as Thelium is a sophomore at Castro Valley High School. He competed for Creekside Middle School for 2 years and co-coaches their Anatomy and Physiology team. Some of his favorite events are Anatomy and Physiology, Machines, and Digital Structures. Thelium is also pretty good at choking Anatomy and Physiology where it matters most. In the 2020-2021 virtual season, he has also taken interest in grading and writing tests.

Aside from Science Olympiad, he enjoys playing piano and viola, as well as percussion. After competing in Ornithology freshman year, he also enjoys watching, drawing, and painting birds.

Thelium's Bird Drawings

Below are a few of the birds Thelium has drawn. He's relatively new and isn't very good, but he draws and paints birds when he has time.

This is the first bird Thelium drew.
This is one of Thelium's first watercolor works.
Thelium experimented with different colors, but as a result, many mistakes were made.
