I like to consider myself a modern-day renaissance man. I appreciate variety and novelty above all. I can become engulfed and enchanted with any new hobby as long as it is challenging. I suppose that my absolute favorite hobby is learning. I exercise this hobby by speaking to new people often, reading, and meditating. I'm very interested in business, philosophy, and EVERYTHING remotely scientific, especially regarding the brain, the universe, and human origin. I hope during my time with Aresty that I learn how international research is carried out and how connections are made and maintained. It is also interesting to study the different levels of organization in an academic environment and what the possibilities of a successful career look like. My favorite quote comes Bruce Lee: "Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one."
