My self-summary
I'm a pretty easygoing individual. I'm receptive of anyone who expresses interest. There are days where I'm on the quiet side - I can get lost inside myself, just thinking.

I consider myself a 2 on the Kinsey scale, meaning I'm bisexual with a preference for the opposite sex. My friend likes to describe me as "heteroflexible".

For 7 years during my secondary education, I did a combination of track, cross country, and soccer which resulted in a lean body type, though now I'm interested in getting back into shape through a more expansive workout regimen.

I fancy myself a writer and photographer, though whether I will make a career out of these interests remains to be seen.

I can be very nerdy. I like to experience other world cultures and memorize useless trivia.

You will find I have the most eclectic taste in movies and music, I can usually appreciate something in one respect or another.

I try not to talk about politics or theology, though I love have discussions on the philosophical and anthropological implications of both. Personal principles are just that - personal. I of course would be happy to discuss them with anyone who can respect the fact I have my own perspective and world-view; I never force my perspective on others, and I won't tolerate anyone trying to force theirs on me.

I am pensive, honest, and charmingly awkward
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated May '10 as a film studies major, creative writing minor, and received a certificate in visual communication. I originally wanted to go do photojournalism in the Middle East for a year or two, but it is clear now I won't be in a great financial position to do so. I'm hard at work in the startup tech industry, but have taken to writing in my spare time and trying to build a reasonable photography portfolio.
I’m really good at
A few voice impersonations; packing a hookah; taking pictures; analyzing films; counseling; making cocktails; cooking, especially deserts; finding/identifying songs; putting on a show; designing visual media;
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, my nose, my strange taste in shoes, my voice - not necessarily in that order.
