Design Thinking

I was born on September 16, 1993. I am the middle child of my family as I have one older brother and one younger sister. I have grown up and lived my whole life in the twin cities. First in St. Paul and then my family moved to Roseville when I was 10. I went to Totino-Grace High School in Fridley MN. I now am in my last semester at St. Thomas and am preparing for the next stage of my life.

When it comes to my interests I would say im kind of a nerd. I am extremely interested in technology as well as space. Specifacally I am interested in AI and the possibilities it brings. I firmly believe that we as a species are on the verge of discovering something most would consider incomprehensable. AI to me means life, life born strictly out of information.

One thing I really enjoy doing is reading. I enjoy all kinds of books, from self help, to technology, to non-fiction novels. One genre I dont particualary enjoy is fiction. For some reason if the story is completely made up I would rather watch it as a movie or show.
