Creativity: As well as the types of work I have on my site, there are a number of other types of creative projects I enjoy that I don't have many examples of anymore: theater, puppetry, voice acting, music composition, sculpture and more.

Science: I enjoy sciences that deal with life, both modern and prehistoric, as well as human nature: anthropology, archaeology, paleontology, evolutionary biology, phylogeny, and taxonomy. I am a contributor to the Phylogeny Explorer Project which is currently on hold.

Science Fiction: Whether from movies, televison or novels, I love speculative fiction, especially about alien life and civilizations. Speculative evolution, which focuses on creating life based on realistic rules of evolution and biology, is particularly interesting.

Computer Games: I enjoy casual games such as The Sims, Stardew Valley, and Animal Crossing, as well as historical games such as Civilization. I also enjoy games that allow me to use my creativity such as Spore, Minecraft, Cities: Skylines, and Kerbal Space Program. Adventure games and role-playing games such as Skyrim and Terraria have a place in my heart as well.

Roleplaying Games: Whenever I get the chance, I enjoy playing tabletop roleplaying games. Whether Dungeons and Dragons, or more obscure systems such as Palladium (Rifts, Heroes Unlimited, Ninja Turtles) and GURPS, I love playing in real life as well as online. Being able to create and explore new wrolds and characters taps into my storytelling nature.

Wikipedia: I love the random article button on Wikipedia. Looking up some obscure topic, doing research nn the web, and updating articles, is something I like spending time on. It still amazes me to this day how much information you can find on the internet.
