I am a scientist, engineer, explorer and enjoyer of the natural world. Officially though, I am a structural engineer--it was the practical path that matched my interests and fortunately, I'm loving it. I am a bit of contradiction: a nerd-athlete, computer techie and tree climber. Though I hold a soft spot for most things geeky, I never lose sight of reality and thrive on human contact and intimacy.
I'm an idealist at heart, always trying to do the right things, knowing that even small seemingly insignificant actions can have profound impacts on others. I am spiritual and caring and fairly civic-minded. I can be opinionated and assertive, especially concerning my passions, but I am always willing to admit my mistakes, because how else can I better myself?
