I'm very passionate about the environment and like to spend as much time outdoors as possible. I'm rather fond of camping, hiking, small boating, swimming, and have even been known to do some rock climbing from time to time :P I'm also fairly fitness oriented, and try to get to the gym several times a week(though by no means am a "gym rat"). I find that keeping active and fit helps keep me energized to do the things I love.
I'm very easy going, and light spirited though know when it's time to be serious. I generally prefer a quiet and relaxed environment with close friends than huge parties, busy bars and clubs(which are very much so not my scene). Also I really enjoy wearing suits, so pretty much any excuse to dress up is good with me :P.
