My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! I like dead-pan humor. I love how the delivery of a joke or a story can completely make or break it, even if the actual story is lackluster.

And I like forming connections between topics or ideas or phrases that ordinary people ordinarily find unrelated. I like analyzing things in a nonsense way.

I like the way a string of words can have a certain rhythm to them.

I prefer restaurants and quiet bars for getting to know somebody. I love the nuances and details around what's being said, because, as with most things, the subtleties are the best part.

I also have a soft spot for dive bars, especially Irish ones.

I am a sucker for live music, cover bands and open mics. If you are selling CDs and performing, I'll probably buy one.

I make a habit of talking to strangers. So many wonderful people have come into my life just because I worked up the nerve to make a comment or joke that I almost didn't. I hear that Seattle isn't a great place for connecting with new random people.

Do you think so?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a musician and a software developer.

I'm very happy with my career, which brought me out here from Buffalo, NY in 2004. I write software for a video game console. What could be better?

Outside of work, I usually go to see or perform live music. A couple of years ago I discovered open mics. Since then I put a lot of energy into becoming a better performer and songwriter. These are really wonderful things; complete strangers are so supportive of you as you work up the nerve to get on stage and entertain them. Hm. I guess engaging strangers is a theme for me.

Sometimes there's people who are brand new and are struggling. Others are professional musicians who are just having fun. And there's pretty much everything in between. Hearing great originals or a brand new take on a cover is a great way to spend an evening.

I bought my own house in the Central District. I love the neighborhood. It means that I'm a 10 minute walk to Capitol Hill, which is really great.

I recently bought a piano which I do not know how to play very well. I'm teaching myself based on what I know from viola, guitar and music theory I taught myself. It's also a lovely piece of furniture.

So aside from that, I'm really trying to figure out what to with the end of my 20s and the beginning of my 30s.

Travel? Learn a new skill? Mind expanding drugs? ;-)

I also enjoy, apparently, answering online quizzes, which I guess is why I joined.
