My name is Alexander W. Hansen-Ralke. I have lived in S. Minneapolis since I was born in 1988, and have enjoyed many a cold winter. I am (currently) a Computer Science major at the University of Minnesota Institute of Technology, but am exploring other interests while (slowly) progressing through my major. While I am interested in programming as a career, my primary interests lie in art, music, biking, and video games. Namely, I like drawing Anime-style (influenced greatly by Akira Toriyama and Hayao Miyazaki), playing guitar (approaching three years, but still have no sense of rhythm), and playing first person shooters and (MMO)RPGs.
