I feel privileged that I enjoy what I study. Astronomy is my passion. My study enables me to combine my hobbies, like programming, with abstract complex concepts such as The Origins and Evolution of the Universe. In my free time, I enjoy reading books. Some of my favorite authors are J.R.R. Tolkien, Arjen van Veelen, Jonathan Haidt, and Herman Hesse.
Furthermore, I like to play baseball or go surfing when the weather permits it. I enjoy delivering qualitative work by my metric. In life, I consider myself to be enthusiastic, driven, yet full of doubt. As a friend of mine once said: "I am not sure; I love to doubt. Most people are too sure about things. Strong opinions held loosely; I love that."
