I am motivated by two types of things:
1) Artsy fartsy, abstract type things.
2) Logical approaches to problem solving.
This is what it's like in my head sometimes.
I like to go with the flow. If you're predisposed to complaining we might not get along so well. I grew up in El Paso, came to UT, graduated, found some jobs, and never left. Now I'm here.
I probably come off more serious than I actually am. In real life I'm kinda goofy, and usually somehow end up making people laugh.
