Home town:

Skaneateles, NY

Huh? It means "long lake" in Indian.

Where is it? Well its kinda near Syracuse.

How do you pronounce it? Somewhat like: Scan-e-atlas

It is home of beautiful Skaneateles Lake and lots of little tiny unique shops. Its a neat place to live, but it attracts a lot of tourists during the summer and Christmas seasons.



Have any hobbies:

I do a little electronics, and enjoy taking stuff apart as much as the next person, but my major interests are listed below in no particular order:

Macintosh Computers - "When you want to get real work done... use a Macintosh!"

Technical Theater - "Always remember... without the lights, it's really dark!"

American Sign Language & Deaf Culture- "The problem is not that the deaf students do not hear. The problem is that the hearing world does not listen" -- Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, 1988 (at Gallaudet).


Personality Type:

Visit the Keirsey Temperament Sorter and see what your personality type is. Mine is split 50/50 between ISTJ and ESTJ which are pretty much the same it depends on if I'm in a shy mood or an outgoing one. Either way they describe me very well.

I recently got to take the Myers Briggs Type Inventory, and that says I am INTP, somewhat different from the results above, but the description sounds like me.


A bit more about me:

Basically I'm a fairly quiet, and completely calm person. It takes A LOT to get me excited or angry about something. I like to take on projects that interest me, set high goals, usually bite off more than I can chew, but work my way through it and succeed in pulling if off anyway. Depending on the situation I'm usually pretty shy, but if I need something I'm not afraid to go to the person who can help me get it.
