The hobbies that help keep me sane: Mainly rock climbing these days. I try to hike on the weekends. I played a lot of Ultimate before an injury, and am getting back to it in a casual way. I enjoy the Japanese game of Go. I've been dancing recently and am trying to learn more styles and get better.
I love animals. My Mom was a vet, so we always had cats and dogs, and sometimes other creatures as well. The dog in my profile photo is gone now, but he raised me from a pup.
After the years of graduate school in which I did almost nothing but physics, I am now prioritizing exploring Colorado and meeting interesting people outside of work.
The second thing people probably notice is that after they get to know me I become quite talkative, not quiet at all, and excited about everything.
I like all sorts of movies, but don't frequent the cinema.
I tend to stumble into music I like online, download more, and explore similar music with Pandora. I have recently enjoyed The Mountain Goats, Typhoon, The Civil Wars, and The Strokes.
My two favorite restaurants in Boulder are The Kitchen (Upstairs), and Amu.
