I believe in honesty and karma. Respect/trust is not handed out unequivocally, I believe it is earned. I am very grateful for my family/friends and believe that anyone can do almost anything if they truely put forth their best effort. I'm humble and feel very blessed to be where I am today and thankful to all of those who helped me get here. I try my best to not be judgemental in a negative way, however facts are facts. Arrogance and false egos annoy me, I am who I am and I do not want to change that for anyone, however I believe that it is important to constantly try to improve oneself everyday. I tend to wear my emotions on my sleeve, you'll know if I'm unhappy or annoyed.
I grew up on the east coast, spent 7 years in the amazing city of chicago and have been in boston for the last 4 years pursuing my goal of someday becoming a professor with an independent research group. Yes I'm nerdy, but I like to think of myself as a cool nerd.
I love being in nature and really enjoy taking landscape pictures and viewing photography/art. Taking time to enjoy the moment is priceless however when there is some place I need/want to be I tend to have blinders on.
