A shortened version of my life story:

Well, it all started about the time I was born a bit over 20 years ago at St. Joseph's Hospital in Ann Arbor. I was the 4th child and the second boy of my parents Ken and Patti Cousino. I made us the perfect little family. Then, all hell broke loose - in other words, the rest of the kids showed up. In all, there were (and still are) 11 kids in my family - 8 boys and 3 girls. Fortunately for my parents, we are all very contemplative and angelic, and we were rarely ever home. Well, maybe not.....

I was homeschooled for a very long time. In fact, until I went to college, I had never set foot in a "real" classroom. When I was 15 I started taking classes at Washtenaw Community College and really enjoyed all the upper level math and science classes they offered (go ahead - call me a nerd). When I was 18 and ready to go off to college, I transfered to U of M to pursue a degree in Civil Engineering. And I haven't left yet...... I am currently working on my Master's Degree in Civil Engineering.

I am hoping to graduate in April and go out and find a company that will pay me to retire early. I don't have many promising leads yet, but I am still hopeful. As a second option, I would like to work as a consulting engineer focused on water resources and computer modelling, and I have a few more promising leads in that field.

I am currently engaged and am planning on getting married in August 2002. I guess you could say I am sorta geeked about that.

When I am not being a nerd, I enjoy skiing, horseback riding and an occasional game of unicycle hockey with my brothers and cousins.
