Interests

In my free time, I am an Irish dancer and an ameteur artist. I have been dancing competitively since I was 8 years old, and although I'm not great, I still enjoy having something to do that has literally no connection to science or engineering. When I'm too sore to dance, I like to paint and cross stitch. One of my favorite things to do is paint memes as gifts for my friends.

I also enjoy science fiction movies/books/television shows, stand up comedy, playing Dungeons and Dragons, and spending quality time with my unconscionable jerk of a cat, Leonardo di Catrio.
