I've always loved history, it began with dinosaurs and now I'm at being an archivist. My history interests are vast and wide. I love studying military history, especially World War II and the Vietnam War, I also love British History. A few years ago, I thought I was clever and wanted to make this app for your phone where you used your camera and as you scanned your surroundings (especially in a city setting, the camera would show how that particular area looked 100 years ago, or something like that. However, Google has started doing this. So I'm a little mad about that.) English wise, I love British literature, and Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book ever. I'm also highly involved with racial equality/justice issues, especially in the Pittsburgh area.
