recovering cynic, philosopher at large.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently a manager in Hospital Administration, contemplating grad
school, developing my skills and interests.
I’m really good at
I am a scholar of artificial knowledge, a decent golfer, aspiring
writer, and pretend (in the Pascal's wager sense) Mench.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a social sense, and can make common bond with a wide swath
of people - I love to learn, and have a large body of
dilettante-level knowledge, which helps.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a fair amount, so it is almost impossible to select a
favorite book, or even a number of favorite books. Genre-wise, I
have read a lot of Sci-Fi and Fantasy Fiction, non-fiction
inquiries (think Malcolm Gladwell), histories, philosophy
(particularly ethics); most everything but chick-lit and romances
(though there are exceptions).
Shows: In recent memory I was most impressed with Deadwood. Enjoyed
most of Six Feet Under, Carnivale, Fringe (mad science!), and Dead
Like Me. I am sure I am forgetting some at the moment.
Animated: Futurama, The Simpsons, Archer, Invader Zim, The
Music: Largely Classical/Opera and Electronica (Trance, Hardstyle,
Psy, Hardcore, Ambient), with liberal sprinkles of rock and rap of
different varieties. Aesop Rock deserves a mention here, but he is
more poet than rapper.
Food:Trend towards asian/bold flavors, can cook continental
European, Asian (Indonesian and Pan-Asian Americana), American, and
French...working on the rest. Favorite dish? Anything cooked with
kaffir lime and chili
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Social justice and ethics, which is hardly a sexy topic. I also
write fiction, mostly short stories, and am developing a
On a typical Friday night I am
Varies. Hopefully at the gym after work, then anything goes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I stole a black pen from the art room in second grade.
