I'm honest (honestly), often to my own detriment. I'm rational and level headed. I'm logical (except when I'm not). I'm more open about my feelings and than you might expect, but likely less than you might want. I am male after all, its a common affliction. I have an often dry, sometimes silly sarcastic sense of humor. Monty Python and Eddie Izzard featured prominently in its development.
I'm a townie, went away to college in Rochester and came back to Ithaca for a job. I'm a geek, I play lots of video games, work in computing and spent most of my free time in high school playing D&D. I'm not nearly as socially incompetent as my hobbies and profession might imply, but I am a failr introverted person.
I recently bought myself a motorcycle and got my license. It is probably the single best purchase I have ever made, there is just something bizarrely zen about getting yourself lost in the country for a few hours.
I have always been interested in how and why people think the way they do, and the beliefs they have as a result. I enjoy friendly, interesting discussions on philosophy, religion and politics. I've always had a fascination with history and will geek out for hours about ancient rome. I have a growing interest in economics (thank you Planet Money) and would love for someone to talk to about it!
