I was raised by an Anglophilic business lawyer and a university departmental chair who secretly longed to be an anthropologist. This equates roughly to a love for British entertainment and a love for road-trips.
Well-crafted, data-rich infographics make me a little giddy. I have an appreciation for the gestalt. I like to challenge people's strongly held beliefs, even if they're also my own. The idea of downloading a massive library of information into my brain both excites and scares me. I like to read aloud to others, occasionally adding dramatic tonality where it may not have been intended.
