I love hearing and learning about what countries people are from and where they have travel in the world. Its always fascinating to find out where people have visited and what brought them there.
In addition to knowing where people have traveled I like to map elevation levels. For my midterm I wanted to explore new ways of developing a lamp with multiple switches. I developed the look and feel of my lamp from lines that topographical maps contains.
