As much as I love the city of Pittsburgh and all that goes with it, I also enjoy being able to travel and have been lucky enough to go to several places so far in my life. I've traveled to Denmark and Germany with my dad when I was a teenager, I sailed the Bahamas for 10 days, and I've been to Niagara Falls and Vancouver, BC in Canada. And yet, there are still many more places I would like to travel to.
I spend my time doing a wide variety of tĥings. some of my favorite hobbies are firearms, archery, hunting, and golf.
In undergraduate I majored in chemistry, with minors in physics and philosophy. Everyone always questions the philosophy minor with the other two, but they were some of the most interesting classes I had, with some of the best teachers.
After graduation I came back to Pittsburgh, worked for a couple companies, including PPG, before deciding to go back for my PhD in genetics.
Beyond that, I am still trying to find all the treasures that Pittsburgh and the areas around it have to offer.
American Gods, Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit, The Prince, The Art of War, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and a variety of Star Wars novels. My favorite author has to be Neil Gaimen.
Iron Maiden, Sublime, The Doors, Citizen King, Eric Clapton, Billy Joel, 311, Kenny Chesney, and Red Hot Chili Peppers, but I enjoy most music from everything from country, to rock and metal, to reggae and some rap.
Star Wars, Boondock Saints, The Hangover, Dr. Stangelove, American History X, The Island, Dogma, The Matrix, Jurassic Park, and The Big Lebowski.
Dexter, Weeds, Spartacus, Futurama, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Top Gear UK, Seinfield, Breaking Bad, and White Collar.
