I recently ran away from academia so I could pursue a real life, though I suspect I'll always be a Classicist in my heart. Now I'm an unassuming publishing assistant by day, and an aspiring novelist by night. When I'm not writing, I'm usually reading -- or running or hiking or working out. I'm equally comfortable strolling though a museum or under the trees, and would love to meet someone I can explore the outdoors with.
I like meeting new people of all types, but if you like any of the following things, we'll really get along: classic movies, drunken philosophizing, dogs, Star Trek, one-on-one basketball, genre fiction, political theory, ancient literature, history, gardening, cooking, craft beer, travel, languages, comic books.
The Evil Dead, Brick, Oh Brother Where Art Thou, Hot Fuzz, Kick Ass, Star Wars, The Princess Bride, anything by Quentin Tarantino, Indiana Jones
Star Trek, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Batman: The Animated Series, Xena: Warrior Princess, Rome, Deadwood
