Sample text

Mitch worked on a number of memorable projects as a kid. For example, at one point, when he was in elementary school, his parents let him turn the backyard into a miniature golf course. That said, he doesn’t consider himself to have been very interested in the physical making of things as a kid. Rather, you’d be more likely to find him doing a book of math puzzles. Mitch loved puzzles, particularly analytical puzzles like logic puzzles. This was how he played, entranced by algorithms and numerical manipulation.

When she needed to she could easily get a perfect score on finals, but she was more interested in stories and creating things. She eventually tired of high school, and managed to graduate early at 16. She took full advantage of the loudness of 1980’s fashion by piling hats with objects and using Christmas ornaments to embellish clothing.

Apparently they were not overly concerned about two small children launching rockets.
