I have a constant urge to make things, and I have the habit of working on far too many projects at the same time. I build things from wood and metal, and they often include lots of lights or fire.
I love hiking, backpacking, camping, climbing, basically anything outdoors. I try to spend as much time outside as I can, which is tricky to balance with grad school. I also read a lot.
