-born in Colorado, but lived most of my formative years in the great southwestern deserts around Tucson, Arizona...until moving to Australia for two stints of graduate school.
-only child, and I don't mind it!
-politically liberal (sensu American politics), becoming increasingly disenfranchised with all politics lately.
-extrovert, comfortable making new friends and being around strangers
-rather twisted sense of humor (examples upon request) :)
-avid interest is music; including percussion from around the world
-in an alternate universe, I'm either a chef, a linguist, or a palaeontologist.
-always looking to learn, expand my horizons, have healthy debates, especially if accomodating a new partner is involved.
I am intelligent, considerate, and mischevious
