What drives/fascinates me is studying and/or thinking about big picture/systemic issues, capitalism (I'm a socialist, btw), technology/innovation, economics and social justice, and how they all intermingle.
I also love nature and landscape photography, and like to be physically active whenever possible (biking the city is a favourite pass time of mine, as well as hiking in the woods and snowboarding when I get the chance). Despite being a bookworm, I keep myself in shape.
I spend too much time thinking about serious shit, and would love to meet someone who could help me kick back and have some fun :)

You strive to be a good person (recycling, social justice advocate, help old ladies across the street, etc.)
You must love kittens (let's face it, if you don't love kittens we both know you're a monster. But hey, I'm not gonna judge. Just crawl back into your cave and we'll just forget this ever happened...
