About Me

I'm a really curious person. I always ask why. I love to learn and understand why things are the way they are, and how they can get better. I also have a passion for space, technology, and gaming. I grew up with tabletop and video games, and read aerospace encyclopedias with the desire to know more. There's just something fascinating about being able to witness your passions as a kid evolve into crucial parts of your daily life. Now, I try to share my passions with everyone around me.
