Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In general, I like to think that I am a very eclectic person. And
the truth is, I am! I often have deep thoughts about lots of
things, like the stuff you think of right before you go to bed, but
times ten. Like for anyone, getting to know me is an art, but I'm
sure that if you're an interesting, fun, open, lively, positive,

A professor once thought I was a genius in college. He mentored me
for a while. He changed his mind when he realized I was the laziest
person he had ever met. I just couldn't see myself creating
siri-like devices. SNOOOOOZ. This happened a few times with
