About me:

Hi everyone, you have reached my site. My name is Justin Schulwitz. I graduated college from the University of Colorado @ Boulder with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. I am currently 33 years-old. I was born in Boulder, Colorado and have lived in the surrounding area all of my life. I have a passion for technology, philosophy, and traveling. I am an Aquarius, and although I don’t buy into astrology, I do meet the description pretty accurately.

I have a beautiful wife, Allison whose overwhelming compassion makes me a better person.

I have many interests. I enjoy being outdoors and camping, fishing, off-roading, and shooting. I also like writing computer programs and doing research in computational theory. I have a half-published paper in the field of linguists and enjoy learning new languages. I am semi-fluent in French and Spanish aka I can understand better than I can speak. Someday I would like to learn how to speak Chinese and Russian. Growing up I played hockey and participated in TaeKwonDo. When I was 16 I earned my 1st degree black belt and have competed in both regional and national tournaments. I have a passion for nutrition and working out. I am a great listener and a very loyal person. I will do anything for my friends and family… no matter what. I absolutely love traveling and for the first time in my life had the opportunity to do so this year. I have seen some pretty amazing places. I have to always be listening to music. Music has got me through some pretty tough time in my life and I couldn’t live without it. I enjoy very casually playing the guitar, I am not horrible, but no means a professional. I have also wet my whistle in digital music production. Recently I have taken an interest in photography and hope to learn more in the near future.

Day to day, God and my family are the biggest influences in my life. I always try to do what I can to help them out.

For those who don’t know me, to sum me up, I’m an idealist, a romantic at heart, and sometimes pretty ridiculous. I try to live each day to the fullest and positively impact the lives of others as much as I can. Some say that I have an intellect’s swagger.

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
– Steve Jobs

“Can I just have some more of that sauce?” – Random Guy at Santiago’s in Boulder

“Say it once, tell me twice
Are you certain I’m alright?
Just a sign, to remind me
Tomorrow’s worth the fight
Ever changing the storyline that keeps me alive
So make a wish, and say
Give me life, give me love
Scarlet angel from above
Not so low, not so high
Keep it perfectly disguised
Every changing the storyline that keeps me alive” – “Miracle” by Shinedown
