End of an EDTC era

I have tried to include as much as could in my video below, but 7 minutes (7:34) just really isn't that long when you are trying to squeeze everything from an entire semester into it!...

I am not the best detective

Online and Offline identity

I often go back and forth between not wanting to have any social media presence to wanting to have a larger presence and be known for my weightlifting, teaching, traveling and veganism. These are all things that are important to me and part of what makes me who I am.
