From Lego blocks to spices and raw ingredients, story prompts to puzzle pieces, I have always enjoyed bringing together basic elements to create something new and interesting. I try to embody the philosophy that humans are sponges. In my vanity, I like to see myself as a collector of experiences and ideas -- Temporarily trapped inside an Egyptian pyramid? Check! Develop a cost-effective method to reduce power consumption in India? Check! I believe that there are opportunities to be found all around us: A difficult project is a chance to test myself. A strange place is an adventure. An exceptionally cold day the perfect excuse to try out that new chili recipe! Through some cosmic magic, I have found a profession that celebrates and demands the very characteristics I see in myself.
