My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've tried my hand at quite a few things in my life but there's still a lot to do.

When I was younger I was sure that interesting experiences made interesting people, so I spent some time off the beaten path. I started playing the banjo and right after high school I hitchhiked across the country, which was a bit foolish and a bit awesome. It brought me face to face with a lot of people I wouldn't normally meet and really broke me out of my bubble.

A little older and wiser, I studied math at UC Santa Cruz and then got my master's degree in the Liberal Arts at St. John's College. It was fascinating to read through the history of human thought.

Over the past few years I've been a farmer, a journalist, a tutor, and now a bicycle courier in SF to make sure ends meet.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm usually working, playing some music, or doing politics. I've been writing articles on a variety of topics for a Socialist web site.

I've basically adopted the old motto "Nothing human is foreign to me," so I'm spending a lot of time studying history and the different ways people have lived.

I'm currently reading through "The Spanish Revolution." With the return of fascism in the Ukraine, Greece and France it feels particularly important to study the relevant history.

I'm also reading through all the Steinbeck I missed in school while on break at work. East of Eden might be the truest novel I've ever read.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Mathematics. I've been out of the saddle for a bit so any grad student could probably run circles around me, but some theorems are just too beautiful to forget.

Reading, analyzing, and writing news. I try to stay as informed and involved as possible.

Playing the banjo; I've been at it for a decade now. I once got 2nd place at a festival in Santa Fe. There were three people competing ;)

I also play the Appalachian dulcimer, and I suppose I'm good at it, but that's an instrument that's hard to be bad at. Seriously, it's fretboard is designed so you can't hit a wrong note.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile. There's very little in life that I find unpleasant so it's usually around.

Or possibly my fantastically curly hair.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Truth be told I could probably do without most things. My life would change the most for the worse though, if I ran out of pens and paper.

Sometimes I just need to write an idea down to really understand it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Science, philosophy, and politics. I am always trying to understand the world better.

I would toss in music, but that involves far more doing than thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Biking all over San Francisco. Then crashing with a good beer and book or some Netflix (right now that's catching up on Mad Men).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I own at least one season of the A-Team.
