I took an area that was nothing but dirt and built it into a waterfall! I don't think many people can look at dirt and see a waterfall like I did. (Video below if you're interested, or if you just wanna listen to the calming sound of a waterfall -- I won't judge!)

Skills

Skills

Technical Skills

An expert in the Mac operating systems, as well as proficient in Windows 7, 8, and Vista operating systems. Proficient in applications such as Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Pages, Numbers, and Keynotes.

Semi-fluent in Mandarin

I have taken four years of Mandarin. I would consider myself proficient but not quite to the level of fluent. I can have basic conversation, ask or give directions, order dinner. But I'm not skilled enough to be your interpreter. 我说中文或英文。我说中国好。我可以为了一顿饭,我可以给方向。我不翻译。

Good Under Pressure

Most people dread when things fall apart and there's a mad scramble to put it back together: personally, I love it. I love when things don't go according to plan, things then require improvisation and quick thinking. It's like playing a video game, anyone can do it on easy! But can you do it on hard, with a hundred brain hungry Nazi Zombies coming after you?! But I digress. Back to the subject, I think putting people under pressure shows what they're really made of. I know plenty of people that are brilliant when everything's going smoothly, but when things start to take a turn their brains turn to mush!

Good People Skills

My main strength when it comes to people skill has to be my sense of humor. I think a sense of humor is a great interpersonal skill to have. It's a great icebreaker and makes you approachable. I'm a big guy and I think I can be intimidating to a lot of people, so I think if I tell a good joke or an embarrassing story about myself it makes me far more approachable than if I was serious all the time.
