About Me

I have a wide range of hobbies that has expanded drastically over the years. Reading, writing, and watching movies are among my favorite past-times that I have participated in the longest and have had the most significant impact on my life. I have a small group of friends I like to discuss different elements of books and movies with and it’s also a good way to exchange ideas and opinions. I also enjoy the outdoors and experimenting with audio, visual and digital design elements. Even though I wouldn’t necessarily say I am proficient in any of these areas they are of great interest to me and my knowledge in these areas continues to expand. One of the areas that has expanded the most recently is my computer knowledge. I know the basics of css and html and hopefully by the end of the summer I will be much more proficient in this area with practice.

I enjoy meeting new people and love exchanging ideas and talking about any and everything. I have my opinions about a variety of things and I like to see what other people have to say. I believe that communication is important and without discussing ideas and broadening ones world you won’t be able to grown and fully expand your personal potential.
