My academic background is in science, one of my biggest passions. If you’re into it, I love talking about cool stuff happening in astrophysics/physics.
In that vein, teaching science is one of my favorite things. I've taught summer camps on special relativity and particle physics, and loved every minute of it. I may very well become a teacher some day.
I like reading, especially genre fiction. Libraries and bookstores are two of my favorite places, and I can never find enough books to satisfy me! Powell's Bookstore in Portland is my Mecca.
I play games: video, tabletop, board, and sports (think Kerbal Space Program, Dungeons & Dragons, Settlers of Catan, and Ultimate Frisbee).
I love to dance whenever and wherever I can. This usually means a rave, a club, or a show in SF.
Camping is one of my favorite things; Muir Woods and Buck’s Lake are two gorgeous places I'd like to see again.
