That said, I'm also a huge regular nerd of the Star-Trek-TNG-Batman-Doctor-Who variety. I can make Batman metaphors out of almost anything. Seriously. Try me.
Finding other artists in the greater DC region is a hell of a challenge. I'm looking for other creative, intelligent people who are passionate about something... about anything really, as long as passion is there.
Unlike a lot of artists, though, I'm also a huge science enthusiast. I don't have any formal training in science or anything, but I read about/watch documentaries about science whenever I can. Reality is pretty exciting if you know what to look for.
Oh yeah: something something hiking something something work hard play hard.
I've just finished a series of paintings about social networking and am currently exploring the techniques of the Old Masters.
When the painting tide ebbs, I'm working on a novel and I'm going to finish it this time. Really. I am. Seriously. I'm going to finish it.
I also make a pretty decent gumbo.

Is it fair to count coffee as three things? That would be proportional to the amount I drink.
Also, why do people who believe in ghosts never see ghosts of cavemen? At what point in our evolution did ghosts start inhabiting our bodies? Clearly it wasn't in the early primate stage, but what about Cro-Magnon, Homo Erectus, Homo Habilis? Did they not have souls? And what about the offshoots like Neanderthals? Did ghosting only start with homo sapiens? Was it, like, one day when the species finally developed the final trait that made them Homo Sapiens a ghost just popped into them or did it evolve over time?
