I've always had a profound appreciation for science and technology, and that continues to drive my professional and personal life. As a computer geek and gearhead, I love tinkering with machines, whether that involves tearing apart a brake assembly or writing a Python script.
Though I don't have one now, I love cats and dogs. They have a simple sort of honesty that I find incredibly endearing. I'm definitely going to have one once my living situation allows it.
I enjoy cooking dinner for myself and my roommates and I try new recipes all the time. Because my parents are both great cooks, learning to emulate that skill is very important to me. After the meal, I frequently enjoy quality beer or wine. (no Bud Light in this house!)
