He was born on Tellar and lived there the first ten years of his life. He and his family then moved to Kharzh'ulla, a Tellarite colony world. He attended Kharzh'ulla University as an engineering major, and while there wrote the definitive study of the planet's orbital ring. However, that paper was stolen by a fellow student, Eevraith. As an off-worlder, he felt he would not be able to challenge Eeraith, so he left the university and went on to attend Starfleet Academy. (SCE eBook: Ring Around the Sky)
