To be alive is to be curious. If you're not curious about new things then what's the point. I want to explore cities, hear new forms of music, read new alphabets, make friends, explore new worlds, seek new life and new civilizations (oh, wait that's another profile). To be a little geeky (that Star Trek reference wasn't even a little geeky, I promise you), let's say that I share at least one quality with the Doctor: if I were to see a werewolf I'd pause long enough to admire it then run like hell.
In person I'm a shy guy. I dread having to go up to strangers at parties and start a conversation but give me a one-way ticket to a foreign city and I draw you a map of all its alleys and by-ways by week's end.
