Adam$45 monthly upfront / $55 pay as you go
I will be graduating from Western Governors University in May of 2020 with a Bachelor's degree in Physics/Education.
Before attending WGU I attended Rowan University for two years as a Civil Engineering student, and through this experience was able to see more real world applications of physics principles.
Between my freshman and sophomore years at Rowan I was an intern at a mechanical engineering firm that specialized in pvc piping and needed me to update their older 3D drawings and render new models. I was also able to view the plant that produced the pipes and witness how the entire process came together and formed the pipes that run water to our homes.
I enjoy playing/watching soccer. My favorite position is goaltender and my favorite team is Tottenham Hotspur.
My biggest passion outside of physics is playing video games for fun and competition. I was a tournament player for League of Legends for a few years and then became a college coach for the University of San Antonio team for a short time. I also enjoy playing World of Warcraft, Oblivion, and FIFA games.
I spent a year of my life in San Antonio Texas after my time at Rowan and enjoyed a completely new cultural and gastronomical experience that I want to return to some day.
