Hi there! I'm a bit of a blend of disparate elements. One portion of me is the consummate ubergeek : I design electronics for a living (usually something that involves processing video and that has me thinking about implementation of complex realtime algorithms in very large, very fast FPGAs) but the important thing is the aspect of creation. To me there's something immensely powerful about starting with an idea in one corner of my brain and through hard work and experimentation bringing it to life to fill some purpose. It doesn't have to be electronics - it could just as easily be carpentry (I've rebuilt a house in the past) but electronics pays better.
The flip side is somebody who enjoys dancing a fair amount either as a performer or just for my own pleasure. I do a bit of improv, and in recent years have even sung a bit in front of audiences. The balance between the geek and the performer helps keep me (mostly) sane.
I read a little bit of everything but have an old love for sci fi and fantasy. I love games (computer, board or whatever) and will happily match you either at a long run of civilization or of Catan. I haven't watched TV for years (although DVDs are a welcome periodic distraction). I'm a generalist by inclination - I love to know perhaps a few subjects in depth but also a little bit about a wide range of things. I am incessantly curious about all aspects of the nature of the world around us.
I am inquisitive, playful, and adventurous
