My name is Simon Livingston. I like adventures, quests, and just about anything to do the Lord of the Rings. I also love trying different things and making things with my hands. I have been a luthier, a bowyer, a costumer, a web developer, and many other things besides. Right now I am also learning the play the cello. In addition to all these things, I am majoring in aerospace engineering at the University of Cincinnati with the hopes of eventually getting a job in some kind of a design position.
