My name is Alex Youcis. I am currently a senior at the University of Maryland, College park getting my bachelor’s in mathematics. Before I came to UMD I was a math major at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I was born and raised in Lititz, Pennsylvania, a small town near Lancaster.
As is probably clear, I really enjoy doing math. It’s a passion for me, and I don’t means this in the weekend-hobby sense, I can’t imagine doing anything else other than mathematics. That said, I’m not one of those space cadets one often sees wandering around math departments, trying to solve others problems, or perpetrating some other equally creepy shenanigans. No, while math is a gargantuan aspect of my life, there are many, many other things that interest me. Perhaps the most consuming of these is my love of music. I find it difficult to go even one day without my iPhone, or grooveshark.com If you want to say something to me in the car, you have about eight seconds before my iPhone is plugged in and we’ve set sail on a musical adventure. I have hundreds, upon hundreds of bands that I intensely love, but at the time of writing I can emphatically say that Regina Spektor is my favorite artist–the woman is a musical Gauss. I also love dogs, friends, conversations about things, craft beer and the occasional online comic.
