My self-summary
Upbeat & easy-going. According to a highly scientific personality quiz I took once on the Internets, if I were a breed of dog, I would be a Golden Retriever. A few other words that describe me would be warm, passionate, idealistic, and intellectually curious.

Some things I love: music (esp. live rock & blues) ~ the Great Outdoors ~ documentaries & mockumentaries ~ wine bars & dives ~ photography & other creative endeavors ~ travel off the beaten path ~ laughing til it hurts ~ classic literature & philosophy ~ watching soccer & baseball (preferably live!).

All pics from April-August '16. My friend's adorable kid. 5'6" if it matters. Trump fans swipe left. ;)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The degree to which we control our own destinies; human nature; cosmology.

I wish that when I swore it came out in a British accent.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having drinks with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am distantly related to both Celine Dion and Michael Bolton. Please, try not to judge.
