Interesting Facts That Relate to Me.


Hello. My name is Brian Kouri. I am currently a junior at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. I am currently in a transfer program to attend North Carolina State University in the fall for Nuclear Engineering. I have always been interested in the process of creating energy in the form of electricity. Nuclear Engineering offers me a way to explore all of the procedures involved and open possibilities for me to help maximize energy and minimize the impact on the environment.


I have spent the majority of my life in or around kitchens. I enjoy cooking and am currently a chef at South Beach Grill in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. I know that being employed as a chef does not make it a hobby necessarily, but I also cook at the house as often as possible.


Netflix is my favorite website, although I spend substantially more time on university websites.
