I was a math major in college and I have tattoos to prove it. I work in the peninsula and go to work every day on one of those big white shuttles that everyone in SF seems to hate. Once I got off in the mission and had someone boo me. Anyways, i am a reluctant techie, I just kind of fell into it when I moved out here and have been doing it ever since...
For fun I enjoy music. Making it, listening to it, studying it. I also really love nature and try to get out into the wilderness as often as possible, California is kind of great for that, I still haven't seen all of it's mountains (looking at you trinity alps). Also waiting in really long lines at the DMV. Love that.
I like to backpack so I'm pretty good in the wild... Once I went out by myself and had a rattlesnake rattle at me. It was scary but I lived to tell the tale. That night a huge tree fell right into my camp. Now I always watch for dead trees.
I play my piano to the point of obsession and my neighbors haven't killed me in my sleep yet so I guess Im pretty good at that too.
Oh yeah, and the internet. I work in tech so I can get around most (non-windows based) computers pretty well, though I don't feel this is really a defining feature of my person... Sometimes I find the tech-centric nature of (my slice of) the SF social scene a bit much.
