If I had to use one phrase to describe myself, it would be "always
trying to learn". As I get older, I find that I grow more and more
curious about people, both things that they do and the things that
they believe. Everyone has at least one amazing story to tell and I
enjoy listening to those stories.
I'm a nice guy, and I mean that in the most humble way possible. I
try my best to treat people the way that I would want to be
treated. There is something deeply satisfying about making someone
happy or having someone appreciate something that you've done for
them. I like to make people laugh and that's usually done through
terrible, corny jokes and puns.
I play video games and watch the History Channel and Discovery more
than I probably should, but I also like going outside to hike
around parks and take pictures. Crunching through leaves in Autumn
is one of the best things in the world.
I am Creative, Optimistic, and Polite
What I’m doing with my life
I'm going back to college - and it is fantastic. Having direction
in my life and knowing I'm not spinning my wheels is a massively
wonderful feeling. I just recently changed my major to Geology with
a focus in Paleontology - yep, I'm going to be diggin' up bones.
I’m really good at
Seeing different sides of a situation...particularly those that I
am not personally involved in. I am also really good at wearing my
Things I'm not really good at : This, mostly.

The six things I could never do without
Friends and Family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
stars. There are very few things more interesting than looking up
into the sky, knowing that the light we see is millions and
billions of years old. Something about space makes me feel both
very small and very big at the same time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Saving the world, one pixelated monster at a time.
