About Me:I do many things. I currently attend the University of Colorado Denver, where I'm completing a program consisting of majors in Biology, Psychology, English, and Mathematics, and minors in Chemistry and Astrophysics. I've written several books (none published yet), many articles and short stories (some published), and I dabble in many hobbies, most with some intellectual side to them. I work part time as a private tutor, in which capacity I help high school students prepare for their ACTs and SATs or with their coursework (usually in mathematics, though I tutor a variety of subjects). I also work part time as a professional magician specializing in close-up magic.
Activities:Reading, writing, mathematics, science, electronics, model rocketry, chess, music, art, close-up magic
Beliefs:I believe in the human spirit of ingenuity. I believe that humans can and should use our minds to reach for the stars. I believe that science is the best method for humans to expand our knowledge and that scientifically unfounded beliefs threaten the promise of human greatness. I believe that rationality is the best way to approach all problems. I believe that, whatever their failings, most humans are fundamentally good, and intend to do the right thing. I believe that the 21st Century offers us unprecedented challenges and opportunities and that it is both our honor and our duty to embrace these opportunities and tackle these challenges.
Books:There are far too many to even begin to list them all, but I'll try to rattle off a few titles to give you a sense of what I like reading. Some of my favorite nonfiction books: The Faith Healers and Flim-Flam by James Randi, The God Delusion and The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins, The Believing Brain by Michael Shermer. Some of my favorite novels: The Stand by Stephen King, Terminal by Brian Keene, Midnight Rain by James Newman.
Movies:Again, there are many, but a few favorites include The Seventh Seal, The Matrix, The Wrath of Khan, 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Music:Once again, too many to list, but a sampling of favorites include The Beatles, Mozart, Chopin, Billy Joel, Tim Minchin, John Williams, Oingo Boingo, Josh Groban
Quotes:"Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read." -Groucho Marx.

"Forty-Two." -Deep Thought on the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything.

"Mathematics is the most beautiful and most powerful creation of the human spirit." -Stefan Banach.

"The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' but 'That's funny...'" -Issac Asimov
TV Shows:Current favorites are Star Trek (all series, but I have a particular fondness for The Next Generation), The Blacklist, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Cosmos, Orphan Black, The Big Bang Theory, Boston Legal, Doctor Who
