Hey there everyone!
I've been on the forums for a while now, and listening longer than that, but I never really got around to posting here. So without further ado, a little about me:
My name is William Kelly, I'm a sophomore at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) pursuing a degree in Finance. While I am NOT a manager, I hope to be some day, and I feel that MT is really helping to prepare me for that time. I am an amateur composer, a violist, percussionist, pianist, guitarist, and a tenor. I acted extensively in high school, although I have yet to pick it back up in college. I am big fan of martial arts (especially MMA tournaments like the UFC), and have recently begun cross-training wth some friends in both striking arts and ground-fighting (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu).
I love science fiction, history, and classic literature. I almost always have an iPod playing my ear (usually a podcast). I'm also really big on paintball and golf, although I can only find time to play them when I'm back home in Reston, VA. When it comes to work I'm a VERY high D on the DISC model, and it when it comes to my social life I'm a VERY high I... I love to party.
But enough about me.... :-p Once again, an OFFICIAL hello to everyone on the forums, and especially to M&M, whose brilliant podcast brought me here in the first place.
*Edit* P.S. You might be wondering about my forum name "XOLegato." First, the "XO" bit is short for "XiphosOphidian," the first screen name I ever had. When I was trying to come up with one 5 years ago, a friend suggested I flip to random words in the dictionary. Those words ended up being "Xiphos" (Latin for sword), and "Ophidian" (meaning serpentine or snake-like). "Legato" is a musical term meaning fluid and smooth. What does it all mean? Who knows. :-D
