I am currently an undergraduate student of mathematics and computer science. I plan to attend graduate school and obtain a PhD in pure mathematics. My ambition is to participate in theoretical research in mathematics and related fields such as: universal algebra, algebraic & geometric topology, algebraic geometry, and discrete mathematics.
According to Myer-Briggs I am an INTJ, though I have been known to be very perceptive and at times quite emotional. I am a highly visual person - I tend to think in images and I have a sensitivity for visual stimuli. I am mathematically talented, and I enjoy spending free time exercising my logical-mathematical faculty. Over the years I have become more skilled with verbal and linguistic endeavors such as writing and language. I am mostly a solitary individual, and I spend a lot of my free time just thinking.
I have obsessions, or special interests, which are mostly academic. My primary obsessions are logic, mathematics, and scientific disciplines related to mathematics. I have a preference for the abstract and an intuitive lust for patterns. My mathematical interests are diverse and I am drawn more toward quantity, space, and structure and less toward change. I am also somewhat of a philosopher. My favorite genres of music are classical, progressive rock, and classic rock, although those are merely umbrella terms. Other activities I enjoy are sharing time with friends and family, playing video-games, and surfing the internet.

Thinking, learning, writing, chatting online, going to library, playing video-games, surfing the internet, listening to music, pacing, laughing at my own jokes while my laugh is funnier than the joke.
