I'm a geek through-and-through, and prize both the obscure and the novel. I've had the amazing opportunity to travel the globe, and I have painted my perceptions in response -- but I hope to continue the journey through the rest of my life.
I expect the worst, but hope for the best. I try to keep myself objective and respectful of others' views, while retaining my own perspective. As I grow older I yearn more and more to connect with people and become active in ways I put aside when younger and more focused on academia.
