Writer (a person who composes prose and/or poetry by writing) – I have found writing is a good way to actually do something tangible with my imaginative ideas. In 2007, I wrote a screenplay called Fire Lake, which was inspired by the Bob Seger song of the same name. I was never able to actually make it into a film, but haven't yet discounted the idea. Regardless, I am still proud of the creativity and effort I put into writing it. Also, I really like the story, and especially love the ending. Later in 2011, when I suddenly wrote two poems—having no interest in writing, or even reading, poetry previously—others were surprised in that I would even consider writing a poem. However, after the initial shock subsided, I received many wonderful compliments about my poems, which is very encouraging. Currently, I am writing a suspenseful mystery story, titled: Happiness Executed.
Web Developer (a person responsible for how a website functions) – I created my first personal website in 1998, after my junior high school class was tasked with creating a simple, single-page site. I have been interested in website development ever since. In 2009, I decided to pursue a career as a web developer and started a website design and development business, known as Webysaurus.
Mathematician (an expert, specialist, or student of mathematics) – I have always enjoyed mathematics and have a talent for it. In college, I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics degree. I have also taught Calculus and Calculus/Trigonometry classes at a private high school.
Cinephile (a film or movie enthusiast) – I have been a movie fan for as long as I can remember. However, I don't think I knew how great movies could actually be, until I joined Netflix in 2006 and was able to watch movies from around the world. The movie stores in my area mainly carried big-budget, Hollywood movies. So I was not exposed to many Classics, and almost no Foreign films, which are now my two favorite types of films to watch. Even so, I find there's nothing better than an intricate mystery brimming with suspense. Hence, my favorite movie overall is Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window, starring Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly. The rest of my favorite movies can be found here.
Aries (the first sign of the zodiac: March 21-April 19, signified by the Ram) – Being born on April 10th, I have a sun sign of Aries. In astrology, the sun sign describes a person's basic nature and the personality traits that remain constant throughout one's life. As an Aries, I am pioneering, courageous, competitive, independent, ambitious, impulsive, daring, and occasionally combative—as Aries is ruled by Mars, the God of War. As a ram, my likes include coming in first, leading, straightforwardness, and overcoming challenges. The sun sign is only a piece of one's astrological composition. Therfore, one's whole astrological chart should be reviewed to gauge compatibility with others, as well as one's own traits. In my case, I have a near evenness of the four elements... Sun in Aries (Fire); Ascendant in Aquarius (Air); Moon in Pisces (Water); and Mercury, Venus, & Mars in Taurus (Earth).
