Having at one time lived in a warzone for several years, I acquired a great appreciation for having the right number of limbs, for dark humor, and for perspective.
I love technology and science. I get a kick out of solving problems. I also love sports, playing the piano, completely barefoot running, being in nature, juggling, dancing like Zorba the Greek (or at least trying), writing and performing poetry...
As active as I tend to be most days, I also believe that slowing down to enjoy everyday moments of joy and clarity is essential.
I enjoy meditating - whether while sitting, running, playing sports, or otherwise. It helps to be collected and present in an often frantic, fast-paced world.
P.S. Keep in mind that I cannot see who you are if you 'like' me. A short message would work much better.

Also, almost anything with zombies. Zombies are hilarious.

Music: Trance, Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, Radiohead, Rodney Crowell, The Eagles, Pink Floyd, Bob Seger, Smashing Pumpkins, 80s Dreamwave, and so on, ad nauseam.
I like all kinds of food, but most days I follow a Paleo-ish type diet. So I will politely decline that delicious pizza and take liver, veggies, nuts, and berries instead.
