My name is Pete. I grew up in a small town in rural New Hampshire. I've lived on both coasts since then and currently call the Midwest my home.

I attended school to obtain a bachelor's and master's degree in mechanical engineering. My journey through graduate school was a pivotal point in my life. It was the beginning of the end of being unhappy. I realized that I had been living a life that my parents thought would make me happy. This realization spurred a relentless pursuit of knowledge and wisdom that could bring lasting happiness and fulfillment. The sharing and spreading of this body of knowledge and experience is now my life's purpose. It is my conquest to journey, adventure, learn, experience, love, laugh and grow as a human.

These sentences imply so much more. So many more things and experiences that I have had. What I have done may have formed me into who I am today, but it is not germane aside from being a guide. This view on prior accomplishments is especially crucial concerning degrees and career aspirations. I view myself as a human who puts his pants on the same way you do. I am above no one. I am here to share and learn with all. 

The essential thing is that the past leads us to where we are. The future will come with time. The only moment we have to make an impact in is the present.
