Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hey, I love biology and learning about circuits and community service and baking and run on sentences with too many prepositions. I like talking to people, but I'm also an introvert; this means I often talk to myself. Apparently some people think this is odd, but I dunno, I'm pretty interesting, so why wouldn't I talk to me? I also like high-fives and long walks in the woods. But it's hard to high-five yourself, so friends are pretty great.

GOAL: be a saint. also a doctor! ST.DR. oh yeah 4 letters

MOTTO: "Do Less, Pray More" (because the Man upstairs can do WAY more than me!)

FAVORITE WEBCOMICS: Dinosaur Comics, Hyperbole and a Half, Hark! A Vagrant, Nedroid
