So, about me. I was born and raised in Ohio, the land of burning rivers and terrible chili. Also, the prison from The Shawshank Redemption. After a bittersweet goodbye, I left to spend some time in Missouri and Indiana (meh) before finally heading down south in late 2013. I guess I could be described as reserved and introspective; also, I use semicolons. I do enjoy witty banter and as well as serious debate, although my particular brand of sarcasm has been known to be mistaken for cynicism. Dave Barry, Alton Brown, and Carl Sagan are my personal gods- the specific religion is still pending governmental approval...
Despite my (allegedly) neurotic personality, though, I do have some pretty cool hobbies. I enjoy hiking, biking, and kayaking outdoors; you’ll even catch me flying from time to time. Indoors, I'm a fan of drawing, attempting to cook, and editing photographs. I also love to travel every chance I get- and seeing as how I work for an airline, that basically amounts to every other week ;).
Non-hobby-but-still-frequently-engaged-in-activities of mine include touring museums, playing unconventional instruments, and visiting theme parks.
So what about my dislikes? I’ll preface this by saying that I’m pretty open to new ideas and new experiences, and that I rarely see things in black and white. However, the following are generalities that largely apply to me: I'm not really a fan of watching sports, I’m not really a fan of cats, and I’m not really a fan of organized religions. Sorry!
So there it is; I'm an open book if you'd like to know anything else about me. I both welcome and encourage any questions, and thanks for stopping by!
