My first post!
I'm originally from Southern California but I relocated to Tucson, Arizona in January 2011. Still waiting on my membership, I joined ZS in February 2012 but have been busy with AmeriCorps NCCC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AmeriCorps_NCCC) since then. Over the years I've become really interested in emergency management, preparation, response, and similar fields. I'm obsessed with many things, including technology/gadgets (including mil-spec gear—once you go mil-spec, you never go back), travel, nature, science, writing, minimalism, design, photography, videography, movies, music, culture, history, ethics, philosophy, sociology, psychology, disaster response, geography, bicycling, and the outdoors. I am interested in learning more about wilderness survival/medicine/first aid, amateur radio, martial arts, tactical skills and the like.
