I am a curious person*. I enjoy solving complex problems, often in the form of misbehaving computers, the New York Times crossword, or the what-happens-next puzzling out of long-form storytelling media.
I am an aspiring systems admin by day, a devourer of books by night. Walking through downtown Minneapolis to and from work, I frequently feel as though I am enjoying life more than the average corporate commuter and try to resist the urge to dance down Nicollet Mall (occasionally failing).
I get a love of cooking from my father, and a love of music from my mother. For purely practical purposes, I practice the prior pursuit primarily, though preparing a particularly prestigious repast will combine the two, as I sing along with whatever's handy.
