In addition to that varied geographic background, my username is a nod to my penchant for enjoying a diverse mix of hobbies/interests (and the fact I couldn't think of a better username, which I think is arguably the most difficult online dating task). I love all manner of movies, devour intellectual 'leather-bound books' and Entertainment Weekly equally enthusiastically, and have a fair amount of culinary skill that I channel into lamb burgers, omelettes, and cheese-stuffed chicken breasts for friends. I try to get outdoors as often as I can, particularly to hike up and run down mountains (Temescal Canyon is a favorite). In addition, I play football, softball, golf, and would love to learn tennis someday. I'm up to close down a club and dance (however badly) the night away, but also game for take-out and a quiet night in with good TV. I'm not a gym rat, but do enjoy working out to de-stress and keep fit. I tend to be a more jack-of-all trades skill-and knowledge-wise, which has made me pretty good at trivia but made it very difficult to decide on a career path. I love debating all types of issues, from the serious (e.g., politics) to the VERY serious (the best Quentin Tarantino movie - it's 'Kill Bill').
So yeah, I guess I'm a nerdy jock, academic outdoors-man, corporate hippie...of sorts.
