I'm an artist with a degree from UW-Madison with a second major in creative writing. An auto-didact outside of the system.
Well, really, it sounds like you guys have an excellent start already.
I'm an avid reader and science fan and love getting into cross-discipline, multi-dimensional conversations that range from physics to psychology to art, touching on esoteric topics on the way. I love to learn new things.
I've lived in NOLA for 15 years, and I am starved for conversation that goes a bit deeper than the local sports teams and TV fare (although I do admit a love for the various forensic-detective fantasy shows).
