I can get as much enjoyment out of a good conversation over coffee as I can with a rambunctious day at Disneyland. I love finding new and fun things to do and new places to explore. I like to look at everything, even the most mundane, as an adventure. Because, when everything is an adventure, nothing is boring.
I'm an unapologetic sci-fi/fantasy geek. I run in lots of geeky circles, and can quote 'Doctor Who' and 'Star Trek' while explaining all the character relations in 'Game of Thrones' and giving you my dissertation on why 'Firefly' is the greatest show ever.
I'm also a huge history geek. I love exploring the human narrative over the eons of the past, and seeing what light it sheds on where we are today and where we might be heading in the future.
I'm an extremely positive person who is always there for a pep talk if one needs it. I've been through the wringer of life, and come out the other end wiser and happier. I'm the kind of person who will always be there with a warm smile, a kind word, and a big hug.
I love to write. I've got one book under my belt, which is an accomplishment in and of itself, but I plan on writing a lot more. I occasionally do stand up comedy, but it's fallen by the wayside a little bit. I'm still hilarious, though. Just talk to me for five minutes.
I also am a volunteer tour guide at a Victorian museum. Like I said, I love history, and I've decided that it's time to make that a bigger part of my life.
If you see me at karaoke, you'll probably notice that I love to sing, and I'm pretty dang good at it. If you see my at a comedy show, I'm usually the one laughing the loudest. Many of my comedian friends have actually asked that I come to more of their shows just so that they can hear me laugh when they're on stage.
Movies: The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars (original trilogy), most Star Trek movies, Harry Potter, Schindler's List, The Big Lebowski, The Godfather (I and II), Indiana Jones, Tron, anything by Hayao Miyazaki, anything by the Coen Brothers actually (with the exception of The Man Who Wasn't There), Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, The Matrix (but only the first one), The Hours. Again, there are so many, it's hard to list them all.
Music: Epic movie soundtracks (Last of the Mohicans, Braveheart, Gladiator, LOTR, etc.), most musicals (Les Miserables, Sweeney Todd, Wicked, Rent, etc.), Tori Amos, Enya, Nightwish, Billy Joel, Bryan Adams, Marc Cohn, Peter Gabriel, Loreena McKennitt, and so many others. I know, it's a weird mix.
TV Shows: Pushing Daisies, House, Eureka, Battlestar Galactica, The Middle Man, Heroes, Lost, Doctor Who, Mad Men, Mythbusters, Ghost Hunters, everything Joss Whedon has ever done. The list goes on.
If you said yes to any or all of these things, then please say hi.
