I have both scientific and artistic leanings. I think the ways
things (the universe, bodies, brains, evolution, machines,
computers) work are amazing and forever fascinating. If I had
better recall and unlimited time I would like to know more about
all those things. As it is I do enjoy learning what I can.
I love music and listen to a wide variety. I especially love music
that makes me want to dance, which can be everything from Classical
to Pop to Punk!
I spend a lot of time on my computer, but I also love being
outside. I really enjoy spending time at the waterfront or in one
of Portland's bigger parks. When I have the chance I also love

I spend a lot of time thinking about
When I'm being serious: global warming, the state of politics, and
why humans are so stubborn and slow to admit that we really need to
change our ways.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I had breast cancer in August 2009. I am fine now, but had to
