Intellectual pursuits play a very large role in my life. I love thinking about life, reality, culture, and the general state of the universe. If we can talk about politics, economics, sociology, cognitive science, linguistics, etc. for hours, I will probably fall in love. TED Talks, Science On Tap, NPR, Scientific American, NY Times, and The Economist are some of my favorite sources of entertainment.
Being outdoors is amazing! I love hiking, camping, backpacking, etc. I've also been going on long boat camping trips for the last couple of years. Seeing the coastline by rowing past it in a old, wooden dory is amazing. Also, I would love to go bike touring.
Art is another important part of me. I love painting, drawing, and playing bass. I love listening to music, reading, cooking, going to museums & art galleries, playing games, going to the theater, or just watching a movie.
I have a diverse amount of hobbies and interests. I love biking, swimming, playing cards, rock climbing, shooting pool, etc. Also, I'm always up for trying something new.
My friends and family are an incredibly important part of my life. I've known most of my friends for over a decade. I still have the childhood friends I grew up with. My family is filled with wonderful, caring, eclectic people. I really appreciate spending time with this wonderful mix of diverse, interesting, smart, funny, and amazing people.
