I love to work, and am very focused on my career. I love my job and my field, and am very passionate about politics and government. I have a secret passion for Near East/South Asian (AKA CENTCOM) international relations. My driving force and goal is to help as many people as possible and to enact legitimate positive change on the world. I suppose I am an idealist.
My interests are extremely broad and varied, but I will try to name a few of them. I enjoy hiking and the outdoors, but also enjoy curling up inside with a book or a good movie. I love all things science, space, and technology, and tend to geek out a bit over it. I am a bit of a foodie. I enjoy going out to the bar for a drink or two with friends, or the museum, as much as I like curling up next to the fireplace or TV with good wine and company. I love parties, but do not dance very well; men my size are not made for dancing. I am formerly an English major and retained the minor, so tend to get excited over oxford comma's and Shakespeare.
I dabble in geeky stuff like computers, video games, reading (alot) and literature of all types, especially classical, fantasy, scifi, and political; Geo-caching, writing, bowling, football, and theater/musicals. I love history, technology, and science (especially space), and have the bad habit of 'googling' anything I do not know the answer to. I'm totally open to new things, new hobbies, and new adventures. I want to travel everywhere some day, and have begun planning an extravagant future retirement. It's always good to have a goal at the end of the road to keep the sometimes crazy number of hours I work in perspective! I stick by my friends, and care for those around me.
