I'm a nerd / geek, but I'm also able to converse intelligently about politics, world affairs, pop culture, music (from Mozart to Mumford & Sons) and art. (Pollock did some amazing work, Warhol is overrated, and the great masters are referred to as such for good reason.)
I have my BA in history, and I dream of completing my masters and teaching, but I work in an office for now as I also work to make my dreams real.
I love to read, and my taste in authors is actually quite varied. I appreciate Sci-Fi both old and new, but I don't confine myself to those fields. However, I will argue (vehemently) with anyone who tries to say that Ray Bradbury, Neil Gaiman, or Terry Pratchet do not have as much to say on the human condition as Dickens or Shakespeare.
I try to be polite, kind, and giving, I have a deep respect for all kinds of women, and I believe that every woman is beautiful.
TV - Whatever I'm currently shotgunning on Netflix.
Movies - lots. I enjoy many, and for many reasons.
Music - Eclectic: Mark Knopfler, Gov't Mule, Tori Amos, the Veronicas, Mozart, Blackmore's Night, and on, and on.
Everything else is pretty negotiable (barring the obvious - food, water, etc.)
