"I greatly admire people with a single passion who specialize in one particular subject, but I've always been curious and interested in a wide array of subjects. As a life-long learner, I'm exceedingly thankful to live in a time when I can share ideas, test theories, and access vast stores of knowledge online. Problem solving excites me and constant change ensures a steady supply of new opportunities and challenges."
