I have worked in education and politics and have to say that I prefer politics. I'm actually fairly earnest about various political topics and am inclined to get involved with movements or issues that are important to me. In general, I like to feel like I am affecting positive change.
I can appreciate both "high" and "low" culture. I love art museums and dive bars and places in between.
My schedule can be pretty intense. I have a goofy little daughter who is pretty much the coolest, and she takes much of my time. I play Roller Derby, which also requires a lot of practice in order to both be safe on skates and to dominate on the track (heh). For the record, derby is the best sport I've ever played.
I am an unabashed Star Wars Nerd.
