My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! I’m new to California after having spent a number of years in New York and before that, having grown up in New England. As such, I’m doing my best to adjust to the more relaxed pace of life out here, although I do wish people would walk faster.

That said, I don’t mind having more free time in my life. Right now, I’m still ironing out a few details, but once that’s done I would love to do more with my hands—New York didn’t allow the time or space for that. Regardless of what may come of that ambition, I also enjoy riding my bike, taking long drives, resuscitating my golf game, and probably something else that escapes me at the moment. But worth noting, I also enjoy the old way of doing things. Despite the conveniences of a digital lifestyle, it lacks ceremony; that’s why I read physical books, play real vinyl records, and drive stick. And I'm fully aware of the contradictory nature of that statement given the medium.

Otherwise, I’m gainfully employed, generally well behaved, and look forward to chatting.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m in advertising. It's challenging, rewarding, and maddening, oftentimes all at once.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Maintaining my composure, bringing some goodnatured levity to things, and operating as a pub trivia ringer.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a fairly good handshake.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

You know, I've just reread "Confessions of an Advertising Man," by David Ogilvy. Not a great piece of literature, but a refresher on some of advertising's constants. Ogilvy was certainly modern advertising's Great Man, so it can't hurt to remind oneself of his insights.

As for music, there are variations, but things usually skew Yacht Rock and British alternative from the late 70s through the mid 90s. Meanwhile, I’m a little behind the times on movies, nothing recent having resonated with me. Until something does, “To Live and Die in L.A.” and “The Muppet Movie” remain on heavy rotation.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Cape Cod.
Fresh air.
Sailboats, even though I get seasick.
My Jeep.
My job.
A sixth thing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The endgame.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It's entirely possible that I could be at my desk. If not, I'm decompressing from having been at my desk.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I will never be happy with my self-summary.
