My self-summary
My life's motto is "I'll try anything twice." This applies to food, experiences, and people. Everything and everyone deserves a chance; sometimes two. My worldview is that of a humanist, insomuch that the world is infinitely precious, yet we only have a finite amount of time in which to do the most possible good.

I'm a jack of all trades and master of none. I enjoy dry wit and sharp humor. I value intellect as much as entertainment or appearance. I will forever be a nerd at heart; living vicariously through whichever medium provides the quickest escape. I may come across as fairly serious at times, but I assure you I'm quite genial.

I guess what I'm getting at is this: we're all a lesson in contradictions. And no matter how much I type on here I will never be able to pigeonhole myself into some preconceived notion of category X or Y. Life it too visceral for summations.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a graduate of the University of South Florida in Tampa with my B.A. in American History and newly arrived in the professional world. I work as a park ranger at Redwood National Park in California. I plan on making a career with the National Park Service, an agency which will afford me room for personal growth as well as travel.

At some point once I'm settled in a more permanent position I also want to focus more on my herpetology hobby - both breeding and displaying my various fauna.

I joined this website in order to meet some new people and share some new experiences, be it roaming through the city, visiting a museum, going for a hike, or drinks at a bar.
I’m really good at
- Being a repository for random facts and trivia
- Hiking, Backpacking, and Camping
- Designing vivariums
- Computer games
- Holding a conversation
- Listening
- Debating a point eloquently
- Making guacamole
- Fixing your computer
- Organizing anything from music to comic books
- Photography
- Writing
- Assembling Ikea furniture
- Handling snakes
- Navigating
- Teaching

Other favorite authors include J.K. Rowling, Alan Moore, Nevada Barr, Richard Knaack, Weis & Hickman, Robert Jordan, Ursula Le Guin, R.A. Salvatore. I'm also partial to select works by classical authors, such as Twain, Thoreau, Kipling, and Hemmingway.

I read a lot of non-fiction as well, mostly biographies, histories, or science/natural history.

For the most part I listen almost exclusively to heavy metal. If it's progressive, melodic or technical, I'll probably enjoy it. A lot of my favorite bands hail from regions such as Norway, Finland, Sweden, & the rest of Europe. I also have a strong appreciation for classic rock, and to a lesser degree blues, jazz, folk, and even classical. If it weren't for these pioneering genres then I couldn't enjoy metal as it exists today.

I generally frown upon "popular" and top 40 music due to my belief that it's all tripe concocted to sell CD's to a swath of impressionable suburban youth. However, I'm not perfect. I've streamed Gangnam Style on YouTube more often than I care to admit. I also have a weakness for catchy Indy songs.

Food
- Sushi (Seafood of almost any variety, actually)
- Fajitas
- Mediterranean cuisine (Greek/Italian/French)
- German cuisine
- Anything with avocado on it
- The perfect craft beer

- Books
- Music
- Good conversation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- The nature of the universe
- How Theodore Roosevelt would deal with the world today
- Why everything tastes like chicken
- What's for dinner
- The future
- Judging other people's wardrobe choices
- Politics
- The environment
On a typical Friday night I am
On my days off, I enjoy going out and exploring - be it a museum, park, or merely losing myself in the streets of whatever town I happen to be in. As of late, I have been actively hiking, camping, and backpacking. As soon as the weather gets a few degrees warmer I'll be kayaking as well.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
- I have a penchant for sleeping in the buff.
- I secretly enjoy romantic comedies.
- I un-ironically love roadside tourist traps.
