A native of Kankakee, Illinois, I am a pensive and sociable 25-year old who unapologetically follows his interests. I have journaled since I was 12, and I hope to challenge others, and be challenged, by sharing my ideas. I just backpacked through Latin America for half a year to see the places about which I taught as a Spanish teacher. I enjoy playing my viola, playing various card games; reading political philosophy; and being around positive people.
