Question: What about science fascinates you (or more simply, what do you like about science)?
Answer: This is a tough question. I like everything about science, whether it is paleontology, archeology, astronomy, engineering and all other disciplines of science. There is a certain excitement associated with new discoveries and just the process of learning.
Question: What hobbies or extra-curricular activities do you enjoy and why?
Answer: Some of the hobbies and extra curricular activities that I enjoy are fossil collecting, building Lego's and programming Lego Mindstorms and Lego Mindstorms NXT, astronomy, downhill skiing especially moguls and ski racing, slalom water skiing, baseball, track and field, and basketball. I enjoy them because they are all fun and different.
Question: What career do you want to pursue and why?
Answer: I would like to pursue a career in Paleontology and Genetics because I want to bioengineer a living dinosaur. When I grow up I want to be a paleontologist and the fastest man in the world. I want to be faster than Usain Bolt so I can out run the dinosaurs that I create.
