To summarize, I try to be a well rounded guy. Involvement with social issues, physical activity, intellectual/academic pursuits, and spirituality are all important to me. That does NOT mean that I am trying to be the best at all of those things--simply fluent. If you want a healthy mix, maybe I'm your guy.
I am religious and spiritual. I believe that it is important for people to have a moral backbone and to take actions with substance to forward good causes, but also believe that people should not be so self righteous that they become cruel or vindictive. "The tree that does not bend, breaks," as they say. But also, the tree that is not firmly planted falls over. Don't get confused, I am an independent person and a free thinker. I choose my path and I try to maintain a relationship with my spirituality that is personal and determined above all by my experience.
