Fun: I’m a nerd first. I like to know how and why the world (and everything in it) works and what we can do to improve it. This plays out in non-fiction reading, activism, self-reflection, and discussions. I’m an entertainment guru. My targets being all genres of movies, TV, and music. I’m also a big fan of tabletop games. Lastly, I dedicate a fair amount of time to outdoor activities from a weekend bike ride on the Hawthorne trail, a random hike at a nearby park, or on my daily walk and jog.
Values: I’m a voluntaryist, egalitarian, and atheist. We are all responsible autonomous individuals, and I believe we do not need a social structure driven by the threat of violence. Every person is unique with a complex history, biology, and lifestyle that gives them certain advantages and disadvantages in life, and ultimately, we all deserve equal treatment in society.
Self: Honesty and integrity are my most important virtues. They give me balance. Healthy eating and living is important to me. I workout 3 x weekly and eat a modified paleo/primal type diet. Personal growth is paramount. I’d like to think I’m in a perpetual state of evolution by regularly trying new things and expanding my skill set. I have my ups and downs and by no means am I perfect. I’m always looking for the positive in any situation, but I'm also realistic. Lastly, I prefer to use the Nonviolent Communication method to resolve conflicts.
