My self-summary
I'm a Software American working at a demanding job in the South Bay while living in Oakland. I spend most of my free time writing music, exercising (I like to run, although I'm super slow), cooking, and trying to balance out the entropy that everyday life entails. Originally from Sacramento, but have been in the Bay Area since going to college at Cal to study Cognitive Science and Music. Moved to Oakland when I got into the Composition program at Mills and have been here ever since.

My personality would probably be boiled down to an INXP; but, I haven't taken the Myers-Briggs since I was in high school and I think it's kind of like a psychological horoscope. I've lived long enough to know that there is a bunch of dumb shit in life that I just don't want to waste time with so I'm pretty direct.
I’m really good at
Cooking. Lately I've been on a real soup jag.

When you go vegan you really have no choice but to learn how to cook well otherwise you would starve. I did it for health reasons 20 years ago, so I don't care what other people eat and I do wear leather products and eat honey (which would get me permanently barred from the self-righteous vegans' club).
The first things people usually notice about me

On a typical Friday night I am
Decompressing from a long week at work.
Getting a run in if there's still daylight when I get home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't always change the station when Steve Miller songs come on the radio
