I've traveled extensively, and have been to all 50 U.S. states, nearly 100 countries, and all seven continents. I really like road trips and national parks. I find hiking in the Hudson Highlands to be one of my favorite local things to do and I hike a few times a month. I'm really good at traveling on the cheap, and I give presentations to students at my university to show them how to travel on a shoestring budget.
I'm an atheist (of an axiomatic ontological variety), politically/socially to the left, and vegan. Yeah yeah, I know, makes me sound like some sort of pinko commie. If you would like to know some of my philosophical leanings, I have an inclination toward metaphysical naturalism, causal determinism, moral subjectivism/emotivism, minimalism, and existential nihilism (however, I am very optimistic and find this philosophy oddly comforting). Egad! Perhaps that's too much information for a dating profile, wouldn't you say? Did I really just use "egad" in a dating profile? Yikes!
Okay, so summarizing my life in three brief paragraphs with the main purpose of making me seem mildly attractive to certain types of people made me feel just a little bit sad.
