Quote That Inspires Me

“As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.”
-Mahatma Gandhi

Favorite Places to Visit

Anywhere I haven’t been to in the past.

Books I Love

I enjoy classic novels, historical non-fiction, mysteries and the occasional biography. British authors are some of my favorites, due to their sense of humor and writing style.

Earliest Memory of Using Something High-Tech

I was in the 8th grade when my family purchased a VCR, which was about as high-tech you could get in those days. My dad set my sister and I down in the back room of the shop that sold it to us, handed us a note pad and highlighter, and told us to take good notes regarding the instructions we were to receive from the shop owner.

First Thing I Built

A bridge made out of toothpicks.
