About Me

I am 22 years old. I recently graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. Currently, I work in Baltimore for a national defense contractor (“they won’t let me tell you who”).

I have lots of seemingly random interests and skills; my friends that know me well can attest for this.

I am a very curious and enthusiastic individual; there is almost nothing that I won’t try once and there are few things I don’t have respect for.

I aspire to have a life with as few constraints as possible to pursue my curiosities; the world is a fascinating place and I intend on exploring it to my utmost ability.

I tend to avoid following the ideas/opinions/actions of the masses because I believe most people are close-minded and easily susceptible to propaganda. Some might view said philosophy as radical and foolish…these are the individuals that fail to recognize the extent of their conformity to common ideals; they tend to lack the ability and willpower to utilize their human gift of critical thought to its full capacity.

Among many things that bother me…without question the most unsettling to my being is when someone tells me how I should act or what I should think, especially if i am more knowledgable on the subject matter than the individual conjuring such demands (the exception is when I am being taught a valuble lesson or being given insight into something in which I am grossly unfamiliar).  That being said, I will listen intently and continually ask questions to those individuals that generously offer advice or knowledge on a subject, as long as they approach me with respect and dignity.

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”
— George Bernard Shaw

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”
— Mark Twain

“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”
— Albert Einstein
