The first anime I remember watching were shows like Speed Racer and G-Force: Guardians of Space on Cartoon Network, though I didn't think of them as anime, nor did I think of myself as an anime watcher. Same thing with Pokemon later on, though I knew it was of Japanese origin. I'd say the moment where my interest in anime started was when I came across Cardcaptor Sakura. I remembered watching Cardcaptors when I was younger and was looking up information about it when I read about the much better Japanese version. It was from there that my anime fandom took off. Outside of anime, I am currently a graduate student at the University of Texas at Tyler, where I hope to get my M.S. in Electrical Engineering. I love God and enjoy hanging out with friends, playing video games, and watching baseball. I am a huge Atlanta Braves fan.
