First and foremost, I'm a nerd. You have to be okay with that. I love books and comics and movies and video games and Dungeons and Dragons. I like fantasy and imagining the impossible. I like getting lost in other worlds, or analyzing those worlds and stories from every possible angle.
I love science, biology, and environmental science. I love teaching. My current job involves both and I've found I really enjoy teaching kids and the public about science and nature. I love animals too. Loving animals and pets is a must.
I've been told I'm an unironic person. I suppose that means what you see is what you get. That's not to say I don't have hidden depths, but I am honest and kind, almost to a fault. I've been universally told that I'm sweet and excitable. Unless I'm tired, in which case I become grumpy.
I'm not sure what I'm looking for here, but I guess I can start with just talking to interesting people and seeing where it goes from there.
I feel like it's very difficult to summarize oneself in these little digital boxes, so consider this a trailer of sorts.
I enjoy creative pursuits, such as drawing and writing. It's not uncommon to find me with my nose buried in a sketchbook.

My favorite foods are just as difficult to list. The better question is what don't I like, but some of my favorite consumables include pasta (in all forms), cheese, chocolate, sandwiches, bagels, coffee, tea, breakfast foods (omelets, egg sandwiches, potatoes, pancakes, you name it....), pastries of all kinds, typical Asian and Middle East cuisine...it goes on and on.
That or Dungeons and Dragons. One of my favorite things.
I'm pretty open to talking, so just message me if I seem interesting and you'd like to get to know me better!
A message with more effort put into it than "hi" or "what's up?" is much more likely to catch my attention.
