Like most people, I have a hard time putting myself into words... but let's not let that stop me from trying. I was raised by an amazing, single, educated (OBGYN) mother and I have one fantastic, gay brother four years my junior. I absolutely love my family.
For most of my adolescence I would say I was accurately characterized as nerdy. I was the kid that talked about video games and played Magic: The Gathering at lunch. Those were some damn good times, but as I've gotten older my interests have expanded significantly.
I would say my biggest driving force in life is my desire for knowledge. I'm constantly trying to expand and deepen my understanding of the world. I believe this is the recipe for happiness, and is the approach I try to take in life.
