Name: Axl Buchheit

Position: Design Team

(Insert memorable and witty introduction)

My name is Axl J Buchheit (and yes, I did put my full middle name, no period). As of right now, I am a sophomore pursuing a Civil Engineering degree, but in my freshman year I was in a CS major. Born and (mostly) raised in the great state of Texas, my family has been in Tuscaloosa for the last 8 years, so mostly will change soon. I can say that living in Alabama has been pleasant, minus the summer, which I believe is oppressive to anyone who already sweats too much without the extra heat and humidity (or just about anyone in general). 

Currently I am living in town with my family. I am the middle child, and I will proudly continue to believe that middle children are the best. While the family has both cats and dogs, I find that I am more of a cat person than a dog person (yes, the dark side of the force flows within this one). In my limited work experience throughout high school and during college, I have worked as a lifeguard, morning maintenance for a sports facility, the front desk and check in for the same facility, and a (professional) troublemaker at family dinners. 

If you were to ask me what I enjoy doing when I am not doing academic related things, I would answer you that I am a student and that never happens and other than that I enjoy reading, listening to music quietly, eating excessive amounts of sugar, and playing tennis. 

My involvement with the University of Alabama is something I am hoping to increase/improve throughout this semester and by taking this course. I am currently participating in Club Tennis, and I am also volunteer help for the UA Wheelchair Tennis Team (Roll Tide). I have never really done anything with story reporting/telling and/or design, so this course will be a (happy) first for me. I hope to put a lot into this course and be a part of something that is different from everything that I have previously participated in. 

I look forward to working with everyone on my specific team (Go Designers!) and everyone in the Mosaic team to have a productive and exciting semester. 

One last time, Roll Tide!
