What can I say? I don't fit neatly in a box. I've got my feet cheerfully in many worlds: an Egyptian raised in New England and The South, a logician who believes in magic (not fire-from-fingertips, but a sort of sparkle to things unseen and only just barely felt), an extrovert who loves both quiet evenings and madcap afternoons, and a logo-lingui-bibliophile with a literary streak giggling in the body of a Software Engineer. Words and their meanings mean a great deal to me, and I try to cultivate words like gardener tends his garden. And stories! Give me a fire and some marshmallows and I'll spin you a great yarn!
The very world excites me, and I love fiercely all the things in it that touch me. I'm deeply loyal to my friends and family and I wear my passions on my sleeve -- there are so many things, both big and small, that thrill me: puns and wordplay and poetry, Pirates, Karaoke, Transformers, a good story, challenges, road trips, video games, the desert, mountains... my enthusiasm knows no bounds!
I love to travel and I seem to find an excuse to fly out to New York, LA, Atlanta, or DC on a fairly regular basis. In fact, I've been traveling for most of my life and I'm perfectly at ease in desserts, forests, oceans, and airport lounges. I'd love to find a traveling companion who wants to go out AND come back home with me.
I am heroic, optimistic, and creative.
