I'm a neophile and go out of my way to find great adventures, new challenges, and meaningful experiences. So, of course, travel plays a big role in my life and my world-view.
I'm super into camping, back country hiking, running and other outdoor activities that end in '-ing' as well.
I like both being gay, and gay people in all their rainbow-flavored diversity. I also value my heterosexual friends, and heterosexuals in general for all of their rainbow-flavored diversity. I also like 'both, and' sentence structure.
I never pretend to know something I don't. I always ask questions when I have them. I strive to listen, with my whole attention when people are speaking. And I value disparate and dissenting opinions and ideas in political and social discourse so long as they are well considered and based in a logical framework.
