I can be shy at first, but I open up with the right person. I tend to daydream and imagine how the world could be different.
I have an affinity for old houses, antique trunks and vintage music, like Edith Piaf and Marlene Dietrich... they transport me to a simpler era.
I seek novelty, and live by the words "variety is the spice of life" (studies have shown this cliche to be quite true), regarding study, work, travel, and other activities... I'll try anything once (within reason).
In relationships, I am loyal to my few deep friendships, which are very special to me, and I have treasured the women in my life.
I spent a year in Germany on exchange... when I arrived the Berlin wall was intact, but when I left, it was in ruins... so I lost my deposit.
I do web consulting, making websites user-friendly (so people will stop swearing at their computers... poor computers).
I've also been developing a hilarious board game, to stretch my left and right brains... I've had to develop a variety of analytical and creative skills, which has been a lot of fun (but it's amazingly hard to get everything right!)
I've studied both Japanese martial arts and Chinese medicine, so if I have to beat up attackers, I can nurse them back to health.
I like to use my imagination, and explore possibilities... I paint and do other creative things, like writing song parodies... I like to sing when the occasion arises. Architecture is my oldest passion, and I dream of some day designing beautiful Zen houses in tranquil settings.

Sci-fi is really about the sociological impact of future technology, and how we might use and abuse it. We have so much potential for an amazing future on this planet, if we make the right choices.
