What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've spent many years learning about myself and the world. I've
helped others along their paths, and continue to do so.
Having gone back to school for engineering, I opted for a practical
route over theoretical. This has led to getting a degree in
technical sciences with a focus on welding, and a job making
bicycles in Detroit. Give me a year or so to get the feel of
working in the manufacturing industry, and then I'll most likely be
rolling into my next college adventure!
I finish work around 4 p.m. each day, so weekdays are actually not
terrible for me to meet. I start work at 7 a.m., however, so
staying out past ten or so can be problematic.
After spending so many years as a teacher, it seems a shame to just
put those skills on a shelf. So, I'm teaching welding
, and performance at the i3
as well as at various
such as Penguicon and ConFusion.
I go out of my way every day to make every person I interact with
happier and healthier for knowing me. Ask me about learning to
juggle sometime, I promise you can learn at least the basics in a
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My best skills are at that classic human pursuit, figuring things
out. I'm a tinkerer above all, but my projects almost always have a
practical purpose. The fold-away mirror I made for the bedroom is
gorgeous, as is the highly functional raised bed garden in the back
yard, complete with a simply fabulous multi-stage composting
Top of my list of things I'm good at would be making people happy.
You know how with some people, after you've spent some time talking
to them, or even just watching them go about their lives, the world
seems to be a happier, richer place? That's the kind of person I
strive to be.
The first things people usually notice about me

First impressions usually include my smile, a quirky sense of
humor, and a tendency to make people feel better about themselves.
That, and the sense that "This guy is a bit weird, but cool".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
How-To books, Utopian/Dystopian musings, and light fantasy for
brain-candy (Patricia Briggs, Mercedes Lackey, and Steven Brust
spring to mind)
Lately, I've been doing a random survey of whatever happens to be
at the dollar cinema thus week. Anything from Pixar. And fantasy
classics, like Flight of Dragons, Labyrinth, and Princess Bride. I
tend to like my movies to have a happy ending. If I want drama or
terror, I'll watch the news.
Pandora! I like things I can dance to, or laugh with, or sing along
to. 80's and 90's dance mixes are especially fun. I've recently
taken a liking to things like Mumford and Sons and Of Monsters and
Men. Enigma and Deuter are nice for relaxing.
I'll try anything, and probably try to make it myself if I can
figure out what's in it! I'm a fan of sushi and other japanese
foods, along with mexican, chinese, thai, and of course the great
The six things I could never do without

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Since starting this new job, Friday nights have been a bit less
full than in the past, but I still find energy to hang out with
friends to play games, and, when someone interesting pops up,
catching a concert or play. I love hosting game parties, and I love

I'm willing to admit that I play games a bit too much.
