I really like being active, and I love to play sports (soccer, water polo, volleyball, tennis) instead of just watching them. During the summer, I take advantage of the great Chicago weather by going for runs by the lake and playing beach volleyball. I'm always up for going out on the weekends or the occasional music festival. But I also appreciate some downtime, reading fiction and getting lost in the story. As a huge movie buff, I love watching movies after going out to a nice dinner or ordering in.
I consider myself to be very motivated and firmly believe that you can accomplish anything as long as you're determined and work hard. I'm generally very upbeat and an optimistic person. It might be the nerd in me, but I'm also very forward looking and believe that you should never stop learning.
