My name is Colin Sullender and I am a Biomedical Engineering graduate student at the University of Texas in Austin. I attended the University of Washington in Seattle where I obtained a B.S. in Bioengineering. I was born and raised in Homewood, Alabama, where I graduated from Homewood High School before venturing out to the Pacific Northwest for college.
I have always been fascinated by the sciences, hence my decision to pursue a career in biotechnology through my graduate degree in biomedical engineering. Aside from my educational aspirations, I am an avid gamer, photographer, reader, web designer, social network user, and all-around tech geek. I enjoy playing traditional role-playing games, console first-person shooters (Halo and Gears of War), and numerous real-time strategy games (currently StarCraft 2). I have been involved in the launch and management of well over a dozen websites and have been the webmaster and an editor for Treeskunk Productions, a machinima video productions company, for over five years. I am an early adopter of everything that I can get my hands on and rely extensively on social networking websites to satiate my desire to stay informed and connected on the Internet.
This website will serve as a digital portfolio for my interests and my current blogging platform (until I get tired of blogging again). I plan on including more science and technology-related postings compared to my older weblogs and ideally my own Ph.D. research as it develops over the next few years.
