A brief history of mine
A 2007 Engineering Physics
I spent some time working as an application developer for a
in 2009 -- as a post-doctoral fellow in Physics.
Collecting and reading books, sports, photography, exploring Upper
Michigan's wilderness and toying around with computers -- designing
and writing software/code to meet various personal needs, etc. --
keep me busy during free times. I adore and idolize
my teachers, and few scientists.
As much of what I [don't] do or why I [don't] do appears to make
little or no sense, I might be perceived as a very boring,
obsessive and socially unacceptable entity, at times very arrogant
and insensitive as well. If you still decide to hang out, contact
me in person or stalk one or more of my social identities --
-- and I will make it worth your time.
