The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about my work, I love to teach, I love to design and fabricate, the feeling of bringing a student to understand a new knowledge base is irreplaceable. I love place, wherever I may be, which for now is the desert, specifically the october nights in Tucson. I cannot breathe unless I get out to nature once a week, and to the mountains to ski once a year, yet I am committed to developing a downtown urban culture in any way possible.
I typically spend my leisure time
I like to hike, camp, and ski. Travel is great, adventures to new places, great roadtrips, just seeing anything I haven't seen before, the more peculiar the better. But downtime is sometimes best spent down, staying home for a quiet night, work far from the mind.
The most influential person in my life has been
it's a tie, honesty and the ability to communicate, without that, the bus just won't go.
The first thing people notice about me
my presence, I can be quite gregarious
The last book I read and enjoyed
Augusten Burroughs' Dry and Magical Thinking, in the end, they were open, flayed, and a stealth love story.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- my education has given me purpose and means
- my family, the loyalty of my brothers cannot be replaced
- my friends, who love me unconditionally as I them
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
sensitivity, I am sensitive to others feelings and my own
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Good listener, Intelligent, Passionate
A little more about me
I'm creative, part mad scientist, part Howard Roarke, which means sometimes intense, I feel strongly, its important that my match understands me in this way, of course it is this quality that compells me to love unconditionally.
