I graduated with a degree in electrical engineering from the University of Florida. I've been in Gainesville for a really long time, but it's a nice city, so I don't mind. And I'll probably be here a few more years anyway, so I'd better like it!
I'm currently seeing someone (no worries she knows I'm on here), so I'm not looking for a new relationship, just new friends since all of mine graduated and left!
I'm a Gator football fan! I wasn't into being a fan until I came to college, but now I'm all there! Go team!
I got a research position in the device electronics field for the moment, but I'm constantly having to justify my position in order to keep funding. I'm currently working on GaN HEMTs and trying to characterize certain properties about them for high power and possibly space applications. I warn you, don't ask me about it unless you want a super long answer! :P
I'm also really good at wasting a lot of time doing random "photo shoots"! So far, I've done a Grease shoot, an Indiana Jones shoot, a mobster shoot, a Star Wars Rebel Trooper shoot, and a Rocky Horror shoot. Recently, I also made the Calvin faces picture in my profile. A few years ago, a couple friends and I made a parody music video of Simple Plan's "Untitled"! Youtube keeps taking it down and putting it back up (copyrights and all that), but if it's up, here's the linky!. I'm not saying I'm any good at these shoots, but I am good at wasting time doing them :P
Trying to write this essay without sounding cocky is difficult...
As far as movies go, I prefer action or science fiction, although anything would really go. A few favorites would be "The Silence of the Lambs", "Fight Club", the new Batmans, the classic "Star Wars", "Fracture", "The Matrix", etc. Also, comedies are good!
I love the Ender's Game series and the spin-off Ender's Shadow series. Also, the Hannibal series and anything written by Vonnegut! I also enjoy philosophy and religious books (like Plato's Republic). There are probably a lot of books I'm leaving off the list...
1. Technology (entertainment and my future career)
3. Food (not for sustenance, I just love food!)
4. Sports (I'm not a competitive person, but I love a friendly game of anything)
5. My computer (sufficiently different from technology in my opinion)
6. The outdoors (I love hiking, National Parks, etc.!)
One fun fact:
I shave with a straight razor and I feel like a badass every time I do (despite that I cut the crap out of my face). Anything I can do to be like Sweeny Todd! Well, besides killing people and making pies out of them...
You should also message me if you want to be running buddies! I'm looking to get back into that.
