I’m pretty intellectual, bordering on nerdy (okay, probably more than just bordering), and love learning about science, math, economics, and pretty much anything. As one of the questions here put it, “I’m an information sponge.” I also have a large interest in current events: I read way too many online news articles (i'm pretty addicted to reddit.com), and like discussing them. I’ve been involved in a few campaigns, volunteer efforts, and union organizing.
I was (amongst other things) a music major in undergrad, and I play (about from best to worst) piano, bass guitar, accordion, organ, guitar, drums, and mandolin, and mess around on various other things. I’ve also sung in a bunch of different choirs, and organized/directed a few myself. I also like analyzing music and writing and arranging songs, and love going to concerts and shows, both popular and classical.
I’m also one of the rare breed of Liberal Christians – my religion is more important to things like helping the poor, showing love to all members of society, and protecting the natural world, not stupidly discriminating against fellow members of society or denying the truths of science. I hope you don’t judge me for that, as I won’t judge you – if only all Christians lived by that.
