My name is Andres Castaneda, that is my full name no middle initial.I am
a 23 year old student at the University of Texas at Austin. Click
Here to view my resume.
I graduated from John B. Alexander High School
in 1997.What I hope to do after graduation, is to design buildings that are unique
and eye catching. I am pretty much tired of seeing all these new buildings
look alike. Since I drive through San Antonio a lot, I always see the UTSA
downtown campus. This building to me is completely breathtaking, not only
because of its "abstract" design,but also because of the use of a combination
of colors. I like to see buildings that are considered different, or were
considered different by its contemporaries. I believe Hagia Sophia is an
architectural marvel, considering it was built in under six years, and
has stood for over 1400, withstanding over 1000 earthquakes. Here are some
photos of Hagia Sophia and other buildings in the area that catch my eye
As I said above, I am 23 years old. I was born on April 10, 1979 in Laredo,Texas.
I come from a family of five ... my mother, Elia Hilda Castaneda, my father,
is a college administator, my little brother Carlos
, age 15 (he is a HUGE Metallica fan!!!) and my LITTLE
sister Clarissa Castaneda
, 18. I still have to get permission to put
their pictures up. Currently, I am working at the Parks & Recreation
at the City of Austin as a GIS Assistant (I make maps). I very much enjoy working
there, not only because of the fun and experience i have there, but the
people are really fun to work with.
When I am not slaving over difficult college work at the University
of Texas, I spend most of my time watching tv and driving around. I also
spend a lot of time working at my computer. My interest include cars, video
games, and sports. I also spend some time drawing and doing little sketches.
is a small image of one of my drawings.
In the video game categories,
my brother, Chuck, has the n64, so I get some playing time in. I like racing
and fighting games. Need codes or passwords, try the link. As for sports,
my favorite depends on the time of the year. If you also enjoy the smart
ass sayings of No Fear, check out my "Ass Kicking"
I like to consider myself somewhat of a car enthusiast. My favorite
car is the Dodge Viper GTS
. As for me, I
used to drive a 1997 Pontiac
Grand Am GT coupe (BRIGHT RED
). Although an
unfortunate accident left me without a car for about 1 1/2 months. However thanks in great
part to my dad....I got a brand new 2001
SUBARU IMPREZA 2.5 RS
coupe - in Blue Ridge Pearl. It is the sweetest
car in the world....behind the Japanese WRX. Anyway in the states at least....Pictures
are not very far behind. If you also enjoy cars, try the Supercar link. Check Back soon for
newer Subaru Pics and page.
