Over the last few months I've been getting into collecting 3-D sci-fi meshes online. I'm a major BSG fan. Offline I like reading military history (that was my major in college), hiking, chess, tennis, drawing and nutrition and fitness. I'm also active in politics, but I think that in forums like this it's best to keep ones politics to oneself.

Right now, playing the violin is one of my biggest passions. I'm fairly new at it but trying hard to get good enough (and this quickly enough) to make music a major focus in college and hopefully as a career later on. I'm in a smallish orchestra and take private lessons using the Suzuki method (which has been pretty effective so far) and love playing it to death. Besides that I like to draw and read and mess around on the Internet doing fandom junk and the like. (I'm a big Pokemon fan, especially.)

Oh my founders, I loved Pokemon ten years ago! Pikachu was the cutest!
I actually really liked MewTwo, though.
I love the sound of Violin, especially in most of the Metal bands I listen to.
(I played the Clarinet when I was in middle school, haha)

Hee, Kricketune is my current favorite. He's one of the D/P generation - a violin pokemon.

But I've got a soft spot for Pikachu, too. My first game was Yellow, so naturally I got attached to the little guy.<3

I used to design kid's meal toys for a living. My claim to fame is working on both sets of Star Wars toys sold at Taco Bell/Pizza Hut/KFC. I'm out of that field now, but still in the creative field doing design and illustration work and managing a studio. My hobbies/interests include going to Disneyland, working in theatre, and reading comic books.

Sweet! I have a bunch o' "collectibles" you created! I remember going to the various restaurants to see what new ones they had. I really liked the Royal Nubian ship that "floated" 'cuz of a magnet. That was cool!

I enjoy long walks on the beach, reading a romance novel by the fire, my favorite color is pink, and I help old ladies cross the street.

NOT!!! Sorry, could not help it

I build PCs, play different online MMO's and FPS, and I enjoy Sci-Fi movies(DUH), Action Movies, Comedies, I love the show Scrubs, and that's it for right now I guess.

Film making (Director, Producer, Actor, visual FX artist). I run a small non-profit film company. Here's a couple of trailers. A few of these were for my exams.
