I'm happiest when backpacking (in the summer) or skiing (in the winter). I mix other stuff in too, but those are my passions. I've been trying to take up biking, with little success. So if you want to take me on a ride, that would be swell.
I tend to be pretty easy going and get along with most people. That said, I'm definitely an introvert with socially anxious tendencies and can seem a little closed off at first (this is something I'm working on). But once I'm comfortable in a situation I loosen up and let me natural good nature shine through. Someone at work once even called me gregarious, an adjective I never, ever, would have thought to use to describe myself.
I think about the world a lot, but in an abstract way, not so much in concrete, "how can I change things?" terms. I guess spending a decent chunk of ones life in academia will do that to a person. But I think escaping that path has been for the better.
