I enjoy lectures, philosophizing, arcade-ing, cooking (and subsequent eating), game nights and winning. I enjoy going out of town for conventions. During the summer, I like day hikes down the gorge that result in delicious food and beer in Hood River, or camping trips to one of the hundred places within a few hours from here. I like meeting up with people who know more than me on different topics (theoretical physics, philosophy, economics, theism, biological anthropology, astronomy, skepticism) and being immersed in conversation.
My degree is in graphic design, but I work in social work so go figure. My other academic interests included political science/theory, journalism and anthropology.
I generally feel a little older than my contemporaries - career, financial budget, kids, the house, a couple cats, retirement plans. All this means scheduling can take some time, but if something is just right, I make time.
