I am from Franklin, TN. I am a first year graduate student in Mathematics Education. I like to play guitar, hike and read books in my spare time. Some of my favorite authors are Daniel Quinn and Kurt Vonnegut. My favorite band is Pearl Jam, but I enjoy listening to all kinds of music. They are my favorite band to see live, but some other great live bands are Pete Yorn, Dave Matthews, and Wilco. I enjoy hearing other musician's original works like my friend John Sutton. I love to write as well as write songs and music. Hope that everyone else has a similar passion for something they enjoy or love.
