I am a recent graduate from college just beginning to explore the
real world. I'm ambitious and always looking to try new
Given my upbringing, I try and live by a simple yet potent
"Honor above all else"
I'm a bit shy and reserved at first, but I become more outgoing and
extroverted once I get to know someone.
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated from the University of Delaware from 2009 and recently
moved to Maryland. I have a full-time career as a chemist in the
S&T/Engineering field that I find highly rewarding, yet
I feel that I've learned a lot in just the short (compared to the
16 years spent in grade school/college) time I've been working I've
learned so much. Of course, graduating from college has allowed me
to become even more independent than I was as a student. It's been
a refreshing change living on my own, although it was a big
transition leaving all my friends from college behind when I
started working in Maryland.
I’m really good at
playing multiple musical instruments (eight to be exact). I also
compose some of my own music occasionally using electronic
composition software (Sibelius, Cakewalk Studios, etc...). I've
performed with many musical ensembles over the years, both paid and
unpaid, and I look back on all of those experiences fondly. I
studied and taught Taekwondo for ~10 years combined, ending at the
rank of 2nd Degree Black Belt. I'm currently cross-training to
begin study in a new form of martial arts.
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
At the moment, I'm not too much of a reader...I've had to read so
much when I was in college, I'm taking a break from it at the
I'm quite adventurous in what I eat; I enjoy Thai, Chinese,
Vietnamese, Mexican, Italian, and Japanese cuisine. I'm always up
for trying someone new at least once!
The six things I could never do without
my friends, family, computer, my musical instruments, my pet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
planning my next trip to travel around the world. So far I have
already traveled to 3 other continents. I'm ambitiously trying to
travel to the other 3* continents...including Antarctica at some
*This was at 4 for the longest time...I just NOW realized the typo!
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, having a good time, or preparing for an awesome
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love learning.....foreign languages, music, and even mathematics
and science. I guess in some ways that makes me a little bit of a
nerd, but I'm happy with who I am.
I'm deathly afraid of clowns...guess Cirque du Soleil shows aren't
in my future!
