Love the outdoors, especially whitewater rafting, endurance hikes, camping, etc. I don't club, and I'm not big on bars (dive bars can be ok once in a long while). I also don’t watch a lot of TV, though I do watch a good amount of movies... Aaand that's where I'm going to leave it for now... I'll come back to this part once the rest of this gigantic profile is filled out.
I freelance part-time as an Industrial Design consultant, and moonlight as a Curriculum Developer for companies teaching Mechanical Engineering to gifted children.
About a year I got into white-water rafting, and now I'm hopelessly addicted to it.
Then there's music... It's hard to call it a hobby; writing music has always just been a part of my life. It's mostly heavy and melodic, and always instrumental.
I have a load of various other hobbies and interests, but most of them are rooted in music, technology, and combat sports (kickboxing, jujitsu, robotic combat... ... chess :P).
Mostly I just love designing, problem-solving, and working with my hands. Here's some footage and stills of a few of the things I've built, all packed into a "super-professional" Windows Movie Maker video :)
Last year I learned that a river can keep you from breathing while it tries to steal your belongings. I am getting pretty good at not letting it do either of those things. :)
I can design, build, or fix almost anything. And if I can't fix it, I can at least finish breaking it for you.
Here's some samples of stuff I've written.
