I'm interested in social justice causes and feminism, and I'm an ardent communist. I recognize that I probably won't see the global communist revolution in my lifetime, but pretending that I might gives me a good reason to work out and get fit.
I tend to come off as really serious and straight-laced, but I'm really OK with a lot of things. I love being around people who aren't as uptight as I am, because I feel like it gives me balance in my life.

I like learning a solid base of information on a topic and then explaining it to others. If you want a run-down of the Cuban Revolution or the Saturn V rocket, I'm your guy. I also have a near encyclopedic knowledge of armored military vehicles; I am the boy who is going to watch World War II documentaries with your dad.

I've done academia and I've done 9-5 working life, and I don't think I could ever be satisfied with either. I know what I want out of the next couple of years, but after about 5 years out, my future is totally opaque to me. I'm not motivated by a desire to have money, a family, or fame, so I'm trying to figure out what it is that keeps me going.
