Who am I?

I am the type of person who is always striving to learn. You may see below from my "experience" that I do not focus on one thing. I enjoy having knowledge beyond a singular directive. I may not have mastered any one thing, but I think I am well on my way to being a well rounded individual who can bring more to the table than the average person.
