No matter what time of the year it is, I never get tired of playing and experimenting with Vex robots.
In the winter, I love to go skiing several times per week. I have a season pass to Mount Southington in Connecticut, as it’s only 20 minutes from my house. Some of the other favorite ski resorts are Butternut Basin in Massachusetts, Loon Mountain in New Hampshire, and Vermont is a toss-up between Mount Snow or Killington.
In the summer, I like to bike along the paved linear/former railroad trails in the area, often riding 20-30 miles per day.
In addition to being the main webmaster for our team’s website, I also have been volunteered by my teacher for a few outside website development projects that I was paid for. I’m also the main webmaster for my school’s website.
Some of the other clubs I’m really involved with include the school Newspaper and the Yearbook.
I’m also involved with the Youth and Government club at my high school. Last year I ran for state-wide Governor and won the support of our political party, but I lost in the main elections by only a few points.
Once or twice a week I volunteer time with two local FLL teams.
If I’m bored and on the computer, I play around in Photoshop or Fireworks MX. If I’m not near a computer, I draw. I also love photography, both still and video. I also love developing websites, and creating cool features with PHP.
At my house, I’m currently working on an off-road tank robot with my father, made using 8020 frame, 4 CIMs, 2 AndyMark single-speed trannies, and snowmobile treads.
I’m also a member of the National Honor Society at my high school, and I’m ranked 9th in my class.
And if that isn’t enough, I also love to experiment and build innovative or interesting things just for the heck of it.
