My self-summary
I am a self-motivated guy who moves to the beat of his own drummer. I like going on nature walks, movies, music, math, history, literature, working out, and enjoying all life has to offer.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in the mathematics PhD program at ISU. This takes up most of my non-discretionary time. Otherwise I'm trying to re-motivate myself to get into regular exercise again, go out into nature, make a little music.
I’m really good at
- Math!
- Cooking... Well, decent maybe?
- Setting and achieving goals
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know that I've ever asked anyone!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Casablanca, The Big Lebowski, The Seven Samurai, Mulholland Drive, Scarface

Music: Beethoven, Leo Kottke, Boards of Canada. I like lots of styles.

Books: Ray Bradbury (short stories). I like to read various math books, self-help/improvement books, historic nonfiction, social analysis, etc.

Food: Pizza, Chile, *blueberry smoothies!* Blueberries are an amazing antioxidant, very good for you. If you've never had a blueberry smoothie, you are missing out.

Shows: I don't watch very much TV. I like some Family Guys, and am a huge fan of Mr. Show
The six things I could never do without
(In no particular order)

1. Math
2. Exercise
3. Family
4. A positive attitude
5. Nature
6. Goals
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Well, if you couldn't tell already, I like math. I also like thinking about attitudes, thought patterns, etc. which contribute to happiness and success (motivation, self-concept, etc.). I'm an armchair psychologist.
On a typical Friday night I am
Crashing at my apartment after a long school week... I am in the process of turning this around so as to have more energy to go out and do stuff. I promise I will have time for you if we go out! :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I cry at sad movies... oh boy
