Luxer Bios: Introduce yourself!

Lux Bios: The faces behind the names
A lot of us know each other on a screen-name basis, some of us know each other's real names and have a vague idea of who we are in the real world, but a lot of people don't really think about it while other people would enjoy getting to know other people, but alas they never get asked for one reason or another. Well, let's change that!
If you wish to let yourself be known to the world, then let's make a record of it! Don't let out any information that could be used in an irresponsible manner (i.e. your actual street address or your actual phone number), but also don't make up random things. This topic will simply be to get people a little closer and perhaps on a name basis rather than just "that guy"!
If you wish to be part of this, all it takes is something like this:
Situation: Full-time college student studying Biochemistry!
A little about yourself: My name's Kevin, I play Eice on Lux of course. I'm currently attending college and majoring in Biochemistry! When I graduate I'm going to go into the medical research field, with hopes of getting my Master's and/or Ph.D. someday. I would love to help with the research on a cure for cancer, but we'll see where life goes. I'm the only child in my immediate family, but that doesn't bother me most of the time! I also owned a Corvette at the age of 18. Corvettes are an absolute obsession of mine and hopefully I will own more someday! I live on the eastern coast of Virginia and have been in the same house for the past 20+ years ... yay! I also love long walks on the beach! Haha.

Situation: Sick-listed because of my diabetes together with my pregnancy
A little about yourself: I have three kids (but my first child died when she was 4 days young), expecting no 4 in February next year. I enjoy reading, but I rarely have time for it.

I'm counting the days until we can go back to Scotland and visit Preach's father who lives there, I fell in love with Scotland, and I hope that we, one day, can live there...

A little about yourself: I'm a junior English major at Haverford College, outside of Philadelphia.

I'm heavily involved in theater (co-directing a show at my school atm), run the two performance technical clubs, and throw the best parties on campus (true fact.) I also live with and advise a bunch of freshmen, which is a pleasure and a huge headache. Over the summer I work at RadioShack and don't get to play enough Lux.

Location: Newcastle upon Tyne, just south of Scotland in the UK

and actually hates all games, except Pictionery, she's a designer too and likes to draw. We started a design consultancy together a week after we got married and have spent almost all our time together ever since. Strangely though it took us 13 years to start thinking about kids, we now have 2 a boy and a girl, Fynn 4 and Pénélope (Nell) 2. They are both fantastic and well worth all the lost sleep, lack of spare time and money...

I wish I had more time to do all the good things in life (Lux doesn't really help me out about that so I will try to cut back a little on it). I like to travel, hang out with family and friends, play with my kids, listen to music (rock/punk/pop), watch good films or TV-shows, read books (serial killers is a strange fascination for me). I like watersports (diving, sailing, windsurfing) and big mountains (for skiing, hiking, climbing). Skiing is my passion in life and next trip is scheduled for Canada this winter. I play innebandy (floorball?) and I am a coach for my daughter's soccer team. And I like pie.
