Parents: Kurt and Monika Nygaard, North Ogden
I am very enthusiastic about abstract subjects like parapsychology, hypnosis, or dreaming. I enjoy thinking up new scientific theories that describe these ethereal phenomena. My love for abstract thinking has allowed me to come up with creative ideas and think about subjects in new ways. This gives me the chance to create innovative solutions to programming or real-world problems.
I am a builder and inventor by nature. I always try to program software that fulfills a genuine need, much as new inventions are born. This has given me an internalized ideal to look for a useful purpose to my behaviors and talents.
