I do research, and that often means I can have a pretty analytical perspective on the world.
I like to hike, most especially the day hike to a scenic vista. I've been fortunate enough to travel, and have explored parts of Europe, Africa, South America, and Asia (Australia next??). Closer to home, I run, occasionally marathons, but usually shorter races. And I like to bike, kayak, boulder, backpack, etc.
Music makes me happy, particularly making it. I once played in band (serious enough to have a MySpace page!), and am trying to learn more composition. I'm perhaps still a starry-eyed dreamer at heart, and there's nothing I enjoy more than bringing big, crazy projects to life, whether they involve zombies or robo-dancers. I'm fiercely loyal and most attracted to giving, knowledgeable, and outdoorsy.
I once organized a bunch of engineering grad students into doing a musical.
