About me!

That's why you came to this page, huh?

Well, I'm a student, studying radiography. I decided on this healthcare field after researching many different medical careers and creating a website about it.

I'm also a computer nerd, which might explain why Tux the Linux penguin is my avatar.

Don't worry, though: I don't write about computers very often. They bore me.

I like to write about my hobbies: Cycling and cars. Writing about the humanities I might do too; after all, I studied English in college.
