I'm a very happy person and I love to enjoy life. I'm interested in the arts, and I really enjoy playing rock and jazz piano as a hobby/side profession. I love to dance to good music, enjoy all kinds of great food, and play sports (though I rarely watch sports). I enjoy a varied and eclectic group of friends, and my friends and family are very important in my life. I also love my job - I'm a professor of geography. It's truly a gift to be able to teach young people and to travel to work on environmental projects. I essentially never watch TV, but I do enjoy going to the movies or renting a video - especially indie and foreign films. And I love finding new good music.
