I try hard to keep an upbeat, goofy attitude in the face of trouble. I like fixing things, tinkering with electronics, composing on the piano, cooking, and reading a good book. Walks through the park are always my favorite way to blow off steam or just enjoy myself.
I work two jobs--the first, dealing with hardware in my campus's IT division. The second, where I act as a digital historian and integrate technology into the classroom of our college. In my free time I like to tinker with machines and am getting into Robotics thanks to a friend. Recently I've taken up website design and am thinking about expanding into graphic design as well.
I'm really, really excited about things like 14th century Italian architecture. And exploring old, abandoned places. Qing Dynasty sodomy legislation gives me feelings. Asking me anything about history is a perfect way to get me going.
