Hey there! I’m Daniel Matthew James. I currently study Electrical & Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. I’m highly interested in Christianity, Android, Google, technology, playing Christian music, social media, and marketing.
You can find me on the following social networks:
Some more about me:
-I’m an Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America.
-I was homeschooled from 3rd grade all the way through high school, and loved every second of it.
-I have been heavily involved in music ever since I started taking piano lessons at age 7. Since then, I’ve learned several instruments: primarily the piano, but also some alto saxophone, guitar, and harmonica. I’m working on learning to play the violin, cello, and flute. I primarily play Christian/church music and classical music. Those are the same types of music that I enjoy listening to, as well. I have been teaching piano lessons for 6 years, and I recently partnered with Google to provide online piano lessons (via Google Helpouts).
-I have been actively involved in the Awana program from second grade until now. I attended Summit, Awana’s national competition for highschoolers, three times. While there, my athletics team has placed 7th, 3rd, and 1st in the nation, and I set national sprint and agility race records. I also won first place in the Fine Arts – Piano competition, becoming the youngest person to ever do so (I was in 10th grade). I currently LIT for the younger Awana clubs, and I coach Games for Sparks, T&T, Trek, and Journey.
-I love participating in my church. We do a home church at our house (ACFC) every Sunday morning, followed by a potluck lunch and a couple of hours of playing outside. Once a month, we visit a local nursing home to sing and interact with the seniors there. We also have a Bible Study every Friday evening; we’re currently going through the book of 2 Corinthians.
