I am fascinated by religions and the study of them, although I do not claim any as my own. I have my own distinct spirituality, and find meditation, and other Eastern practices more my style than the rigidity of Western religion. One of my favorite philosophers said "you should try all religions, than create your own".
I have live in Michigan most of my life with 6 years spent living on the gulf coast of Florida. It is truly beautiful there, and the ocean is one of my greatest loves in life. I truly hope to move somewhere a little warmer by the ocean in the next few years.
I work in technology, so much of my time is spent playing with the newest gadgets and gear. Despite this I really enjoy nature and its beauty. Hiking, biking, and generally just wandering Hines Drive is one of my favorite things to do.
I am a computer nerd professionally and have a lot of geeky hobbies, but am not a typical geek in any way. I am also an artist, and try to do a lot of shows in the EDM scene in Detroit. I recently bought a house, so many of my hobbies have been put on hold while I remodel it.
I really enjoy the outdoors, canmping, and fishing; all of which I need to do more of. I also intend to try to make a lot of music festivals next year, possibly as a vendor, maybe just as a festival goer. I also am an artist, not professional, but I love it and also try to support my local artist firends at their shows/events.

My main interests right now involve cosmology, ontology, philosophy, mysticism, and their connection to advances in quantum physics. It is really fascinating stuff, and I love to ponder the implications it has on us all.
