Interests

When I'm not fixing computers or doing schoolwork, I spend a lot of my free time running or hiking. I also enjoy photography, and have travelled to many state and national parks to capture great photos.

During the cold Midwest winters, or when I'm not outside, I follow many different TV shows and movies of various genres. A large majority of my free time is also dedicated to technologies such as Photoshop, as well as reading about the latest technologies to hit the mainstream media.
