I'm a kid from a small town way up north, but that hasn't stopped me from engaging in what I love to do. Whether it be tennis or fencing, scuba diving or golf, I love it. Summer time is great for hiking (aside from mammoth mosquitoes), but the colorful splendor of Autumn is my favorite season. Outside of intense academics and research, I take time to hone my piano skills as well as sing baritone. While I have numerous interests, talents, and hobbies, above ALL I love to learn. It can be something pertaining to my fields of interest to an unrelated fact that is useful and is worth knowing, I'd appreciate the opportunity to learn. Couldn't tell how I would've turned out if it wasn't for the close-knit community of my hometown coupled with my loving family!
