Like anyone, I have my faults. But I am committed to living in adherence to my values, which include being honest, and treating all people with love and dignity.
I moved to Baltimore in October 2016, and am really loving the atmosphere of Baltimore. I walk to work everyday and I feel like it's given me a good sense of the city. I've lived all over this country, and while I can't say that I'll be in Baltimore forever, it certainly is among my favorite places to live.
hobbies: I really enjoy playing reading, hiking, camping and playing guitar . Reading books, playing guitar, hiking, kayaking, exploring, driving, posting pictures of landscapes, beers, and bars on Facebook, etc.
clubs/social activities: I started a beard club in Washington DC recently. We meet about once a month, and discuss grooming habits, social activism, charitable or volunteer opportunities, and heavy metal. mostly we talk about metal.
I always seem to have a lot going. That doesn't mean I don't have time in my life for a romantic relationship. Mostly it means that I have well developed calendar management skills.
So lately I have just been reading public health books. Notable ones are Plagues and People, Partner to the Poor: A Paul Farmer Reader, The Demon Under the Microscope, and the Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande. Otherwise, it's a mixture of fiction and non-fiction. I try to keep up with whatever Salman Rushdie is doing at any given moment. Tom Robbins or Stephen King are fun reading for me. Yes, Stephen King. People seem to have a problem with that. I will defend my position if you want to hash it out. Lately I've been reading about feminism.
As for music, I'm into a lot, and I could rattle off names, but I won't. If I had to pick one, I'd pick the minutemen (that's like, my "if I had to pick one album" I'd pick one of theirs). I like some pop stuff, but I'm a big classic rock fan/nerd. I could probably tell you more about Frank Zappa than anyone else. I also like feeding my younger punk rock side, and it can get weirder after that. My favorite singer right now is Mirah.
I like comedy movies mostly, but I'll pretty much watch anything. To be honest, I watch a lot of assorted media, often while I'm at work as background noise while I'm doing something else.
