Growing up in the the hills of Northern California allowed me to develop an affinity for nature. I like hiking, slow bike rides and outdoor adventures in general. I also love animals, I'm the guy who stops to take a moment to communicate with that cute stray cat. I've been called the cat whisperer on more than a few occasions. Dogs and I get along famously too. I tend be quiet or reserved and like to reflect while alone, usually over a cup of delicious coffee. I'm happy sitting with a view and enjoying the moment.

I love learning about the world and the science of it. I'm fascinated by the universe and it's overwhelming scales. I never claim I know why we are here or why the universe exists, but I enjoy the great mystery of it and it's really fun to think about.
I also like to tinker, take things apart and fix them.
I enjoy playing and watching sports, especially NBA basketball. I appreciate the strategies behind them and their representation of our inherent athletic and competitive nature. Another passion of mine is motorsports. I greatly admire seeing engineering and design being pushed to new levels as well as the extremes that people will go through to set bars in human ability and endurance.
Critical social justice, race, and class theories are important to me. I'm still in the process of learning ways to deconstruct the systems of oppression and understanding the intersections of these fundamental problems.
FYI; I am in a healthy and honest friendship with my ex partner which I still live with. We are best friends who are dating new people and sharing a home together.
