-- Oscar Wilde
As for what I do, I am an architectural designer and teacher. I have worked in an architectural firm for some years now, and enjoy it a great deal. Somehow, designing spaces and buildings never gets repetitive. I get to help people, and be both artistic and technical all at once.
Otherwise, my interests are various. Reading is a big one. I usually have at least one book I'm reading, sometimes more. I suppose that means I either have wide interests, or rarely finish what I start. I'm not sure which. Other interests include drawing (it goes with the architecture vocation), singing, playing the piano, hanging out with a select few friends.
When I get the chance, I really enjoy being outdoors. When I was younger, my family used to go backpacking in the Sierras fairly frequently. (An easy way to see a bear up close, and not have to deal with the zoo crowd!) Unfortunately, I haven't really had the chance to do that recently... the hiking I mean, not the running into bears. Although I haven't done that recently, either.
I am quirky, compassionate, and have simple tastes
