My self-summary
Bright colors, dark beers, two-wheeled vehicles, and down-tuned guitars. Generalist above specialist, fox before hedgehog, and have built up a varied skill set over the years. Insatiable reader, music lover, handy around a machine shop.
What I’m doing with my life
Designing and building mechanical things. Getting around on cycles, bi- and motor-. Throwing discs, laying out gratuitously, running medium distances, yoga to try and make those muscles hurt less. Sunday morning coffee, used bookstores, headbanging, snowboarding, trying to stand up on a short board. Generally no more than two of these at the same time.

Doing my best to live up to a few quotes.

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."- Robert Heinlein

"We make our own and if they don't feel it/Then we are not for them (and that's cool)"-P.O.S.

"Though we are not sure who we are, we keep our heads up" - La Dispute

The six things I could never do without
- A bike that can go anywhere (with the tools to fix it)
- Something to read
- Coffee
- Parenthetical asides
- Music player
- Open water (Surprising enough for someone who grew up landlocked)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I can channel my energy into something that won't just be another useless lump of plastic in six months

How much longer my body will continue to hold up if I keep diving for every throw within six feet
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I speak to my motorcycle like it's a dog, including stopping to pet it when I walk past in the street.

What? Totally normal.
You should message me if
You want to run around outside, anywhere from a field to a mountainside, bikes to the Pacific.

You build something. That covers a lot of ground, from food to skyscrapers, but you value creating something of your own.
