I'm a very analytically adept person who is also very in touch with my emotions. There's an old Christine Lavin song called "Sensitive New Age Guys", I often use that as a descriptor for who I am.
I have a strong interest in making the world a better place. To me this means a voting tendency toward the left, recycling even when it makes my house messy, eating ethically when I can afford it, and generally being mindful of how my actions impact other people and the world.
I've served a term in Americorps, completed degrees in philosophy and psychology, written resolutions presented to the U.N., biked 100 miles in one go, and watched more movies than I should have.
My core values revolve around the people I care about in my life. I'm very close to my mom, and am fiercely loyal to my friends. In the recent past I've found that it's very important to me to feel like I'm trusted and heard in my relationships with others. It's very important to me to not offend people, and sometimes that means I won't take risks that I should. So if I come across as shy or passive, I might need a prompt.
Overall, I'm an open book and love to get to know people.
