I was born in Spain and moved to the states when I was six years old. Having two passports is nice.
What can I say...just like everyone else Ive been through good times and bad. Right now is a pretty good time. I'm currently in a state of transition (though I kind of feel like we are all in a state of perpetual transition) and while some people get freaked out by change I tend to welcome it. Of course, some kind of "Rise of The Machines" scenario or "Zombie Apocalypse" would not be welcome. Or maybe it would, I don't know.
I absolutely love to travel, few things make me happier. By traveling I don't so much mean "going on vacation" but rather, well...traveling. I have been to a lot of places, but I'm (healthily) obsessed with the Indian sub-continent..there is no place like it in the world.
Besides travel I have a passion for music, all types really. I feel like a dick writing that I like "all types of music" because I think that's normally a shitty answer, but in my not so humnle opinion, if you truly love music, you can appreciate any kind. Having said that, I have a propensity towards Rock n' Roll and Jazz / Jazz Fusion. Seeing live music is fantastic.
I have a serious nerdy-streak too. I used to be a High School teacher, but now I'm a coder / developer / researcher for a rather large (and innovative) company. I'm not always thrilled with the idea of being part of the "corporate machine" but I work with a very small group of like-minded individuals and we truly are working on some very fascinating exciting stuff. It's a very positive outlet for my creativity.
Oh yeah and I like comics. A lot, in fact. I also love to read just about anything, from Dostoevsky to Salinger to Schrodinger to Hemingway to Tolkien and many more in between.
I spend a lot of time thinking. I'm able to entertain myself for hours on end doing this. In fact I would say my brain is my favorite form of entertainment, for better or worse.
