I enjoy the physical sciences, especially reading about physics, astronomy, & cosmology. I like hiking locally and backpacking in the Appalachians of NC, VA, GA, & TN. When it's quiet at home (particularly late at night), I enjoy listening to music (e.g., the Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, Eno, Patti Smith, Tom Petty, REM, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Joni Mitchell, etc.). I consider analogue (vinyl) to be much more aurally rich than digital (CD, mp3, etc.), but I appreciate the portability of the latter (i.e., it's hard to play 12"-vinyl in the car.)
I'm open minded and politically liberal. I can't tolerate intolerance (hahaha).
I am intellectual, outdoorsy, and can't spell well.
