Music has always had a profound effect on my life, heavily modifying my perception of it. I play the baritone saxophone at our school band and can happily say it is one of the most memorable moments of my high school career. I am a particular fan of jazz music and thoroughly enjoy playing it. You can often find me dancing and performing as I play at various school outlets. I do not do this simply for attention, I always do this because I genuinely love the music we play and love getting into it.
Over the past few years I have discovered my passion for acting and performing. I find the performing arts to be exhilarating and an excellent way to express myself. I am also heavily involved in the local Drama club at Mitchell, starring as Algernon Moncrieff in our production of The Importance of Being Earnest. I can safely say it is the most fun I have ever had in any school outlet and I will never forget it.
With recent events, I have found politics to be one of the most interesting aspects of our modern society. leading up to the 2016 presidential election and onward I have found myself fully engrossed in the complex political mudslinging that occurred during the presidential race. Such events have even inspired me to pursue law and politics upon graduation, as I feel I need to attempt to guide the United States in the way I believe we need to go. While I have seen both sides of the political spectrum, I will not say what political affiliation I subscribe to as to avoid being demonized for my beliefs.
I have always been a big history buff in my youth, particularly war history. However, no single country or set of conflicts interested me as much as that of the Russian revolution and the following histories after the birth of the Soviet Union. I frequently educate myself on such a topic to use as an educational tool in my future and to come to my own conclusions on the result of such a nation's collapse.
Watching bad movies with friends has always been a great joy of mine over the years. However, no film director has provided more beautiful content than that of Neil Breen. Neil Breen is the director and producer of 3 and an upcoming 4 movies. Each film I could only describe as a disasterpiece with the trifecta of them being his film "Fateful Findings." I can not go into further detail about the films, as learning about the surprises in them is partly what makes it so entertaining, but I can assure you that these films have provided endless entertainment for my friends and I.
This is a relatively new hobby of mine. Pathfinder is a role playing game virtually identical to Dungeons and Dragons. My friends, Zach Young, Alex Saunders and Katie Delawter recently began getting together every week to play prolonged sessions together as we explore dungeons and a grand story unfolds in front of us. I immensely enjoy this because it allows me to spend time with my best friends in a very dynamic way to make us feel as though we are much greater being than we actually are
