As for other interests, I LOVE to travel, having visiting places like England, New Zealand, and Japan. I even lived in Australia for 7 months while in grad school, and it was an experience I'll never forget. I tend to also kill a lot of time hiking outside the city, biking on the beach, and belting out cheesy 80s tunes at karaoke bars.
As for what I'm looking for, I'd like to meet a girl who's assertive, adventurous, intelligent, and patient. Someone who knows herself well, but doesn't take herself too seriously, and most importantly is also passionate about the things she loves in life.
A Song of Ice and Fire, A Stranger In A Strange Land, High Fidelity, Brave New World, The World According To Garp, Ender's Game, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, LOTR, and pretty much anything by Stephen King. Also a huge fan of graphic novels like Preacher, Watchmen, Fables, Y: The Last Man, The Walking Dead and many others.
