My self-summary
I eat the crust first on my pizza and the center bite of my burger last. The best part is always worth waiting for.

I like to keep things simple. I'm a bit of a romantic. I like to stop and eat the roses. Things I've created have been seen by millions of people. I love my dad and my brothers. I charge my batteries at home. I often wake up actively excited about the day to come. I'm right where I want to be, save for one huge exception.

In short I'm driven, smart, financially independent, in a great place in my career, charming, a gentleman, self aware, open to trying new adventures, and I give great hugs.

I am the Key Master. Are you the Gate Keeper?
What I’m doing with my life
Took my first swing class in June. It was fun. Turning my ideas and efforts into money via the magic the is computers.

Now it's planning presentations for a few events I'm speaking at. Also slowly refurnishing. I'm terrible at picking out quilts.
I’m really good at
Rock paper scissors.

Listening and engaging. Getting to the crux of the problem. Figuring out exactly how two people are talking at cross purposes.

Cutting pizza in a specific way to keep it hot.

Teaching

Fitting everything I need in a single carry-on bag during flights.

Being able to quote things with high fidelity.

Creating meals from strange leftovers that are delicious.

Forgetting names.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Kind of an evolution buff and geek out on science videos, in particular evolution. What I'm making for dinner. Why I said that one thing that one time (usually at 2 in the morning when I can't sleep).
On a typical Friday night I am
Fighting crime in spandex tights. Looking for someone who can keep up on my adventures.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have on occasion spelled a word so poorly that even google can't make heads nor tails of it.
