♫These are a few of my favorite things♫
I'm driven to find new experiences and knowledge. I'm the sort of person who goes to museums in their free time and is more likely to go to a bands performance because they are playing something I've never heard of before than something I know I like.
Travel and sociology/psychology are my favorite things. Having done a fair amount of the former, I love to look back through the lens of the latter, as well as applying it to the very tumultuous present, both here and abroad.
I LOVE cooking and while I'm no expert chef I'll try just about and damn thing you can come up with. Thanks to a proper upbringing I can cook a mean stir-fry and most Chinese dishes. If you can provide a recipe I'll give is a passable shot.
Thanks to a snap decision out of High school I managed to see a fair portion of the world while in the US Navy. Pull out a globe, put your finger anywhere between California and Iraq and I've most likely been there. I was particularly struck by Singapore and Thailand, and I hope to get back there some day.
I am seeking either a position as a garbage man at the South Pole or a graduate degree, whichever throws itself in my lap first.
