I'm fortunate to have two partners with whom I'm in supportive
relationships, and a handful of awesome metamores, though I am
starting to consider dating casually again. I find connections of
many kinds rewarding and fulfilling.
I like to lead an active lifestyle as much as I can, and I've been
for the last couple years - I'm always looking for new
climbing partners. I also like cycling (especially for my work
commute) and occasionally swim.
Over the past few years I've started learning how to play guitar
and I've been trying to get out
and do them in front of people with some success. I spent a stint
as a singer in a classic rock cover band and have a lot of fun
doing karaoke. Ultimately I just love the process of playing (and
sometimes making, though I'm not a writer) music either on my own
or with other people.
I've also recently become the announcer for a women's flat track
roller derby (WTFDA) league in the peninsula. While this is at odds
with my actual personality (which tends towards shy), it's been
good practice for talking in front of crowds.
When I slow down, it's to enjoy time with friends, watch TV, read,
or play video games or occasionally TCGs. On the geekier side, I
have a Youtube channel where I post videos
covers, frequently played through a game called
Rocksmith. I find it good incentive for me to keep practicing.
