I'm an animator by trade and I love every minute of it. I've also played the piano since I was 5, generally classically, but more of a jazz improvisation artist now.
I'm quite liberal, and keep up to date on politics as much as I can. I'm currently concerned with healthcare reform and mad about everything the right wing is doing to combat it. On the other hand, I also like to go target shooting with guns. I guess I'm a Marxman? I'm on Fark and Reddit pretty much daily.
I'm a massive movie buff, I love board games, I play video games but don't let them take over my life. I love to cook, and actually have a copy of the Larousse Gastronomique under my bed for some late night reading.
I hold season tickets to the SF Symphony and have very select artists that I get super excited about when they are in town. I could live in either the MoMA or the Legion of Honor, but could do without the De Young.
I adore owls. I bake desserts often and surprise people with them. I love stormy weather and tepid overcast days, and I always enjoy walking in the rain...umbrella is optional. I am fairly reserved and introspective at first, but once I warm up to someone I become goofier and more open. I'm not that outdoorsy by nature, but I'm definitely not opposed to it; however, I'd prefer a trip to Vegas or a large City around the world to camping if given a choice.
I feel a mixture of awe, humility, and heartbreak whenever I see a Hubble Deep Field or Ultra Deep Field photograph.
I love talks and collaborations of human intellect like TED.
