I am a 5-year PNW transplant from SoCal, and honestly I love it up here. Rain? Fresh air? TREES? BASKETBALL?!?! I had none of those when I was growing up!
I have 3 cats. One of them is a sweet fluffy Maine Coon. Another is a runt I rescued from Gresham, a place where I am convinced all of the world's toilets flush to [and, unfortunately, where I currently reside]. The latest addition to my feline family is also a runt I rescued from Sandy after I had moved to Gresham. Makers of automatic litter boxes are my new best friends... and help considerably when I need to go out of town for a few days and must convince a friend/neighbor/coworker to take care of these furry beasts.
My interests are as vast as they are deep. Some of the top topics would be science, technology, humanism, sustainability, philosophy, post-scarcity economics, autonomy, the future, and seeing things through a lens of optimism, because I do generally feel hopeful for the future even though Mother Culture can really, really test me. My interests also may include you. :)

Technology, science, humanity
We could all live better than Bill Gates if we applied our science and technology humanely. However, you must have sustainable values to have a sustainable society. But once we achieve that, we could create a paradise on Earth as fast as the machines could build it.
Also, hawt chix. :D
Playing videogames. Currently into War Thunder, that P-51 is a monster.
Reading books recommended to me by my boss.
Hopefully, making someone smile. That is always super nice.
