The Ultimate Sacrifice
The ultimate sacrifice, is there one? The pursuit of excellence for me is the ultimate sacrifice. I am the stranger, the homeless one, the weary traveler. For he who pursues excellence down the road the sacrifice is gentle. Some friends come along the journey, and parents are never far off. As I hone my skills to become a more productive part of society, my old self dies away. Like a snake I shed my skin. Old friends, some stranger due to the separation, but others reduced to a hello.

I am a graduate student at Harvard University studying computer science and business, a former gameplay programmer at EA Sports, and a graphics programmer by hobby. Aesthetics is a fundamental part of me, from the programs I develop to the way I live my life.

Update: currently interning at Disney Research in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. Also working on my Master Thesis in Computational Neuroscience field of Connectomics.
