Hi, thanks for stopping by. A self-summary, eh? Well, I'm a good
guy, I care about people and believe in fairness and equality. I
have a few close friends but I'd like to expand that a little bit.
I lean towards the introverted side, but in a good way. I think a
lot and talk a lot. I love to teach, taught college level for 12
years but I don't do that anymore. I always like to be learning
something new or making something. My profession is architecture
and interior design and I have my own business. I haven't traveled
enough. I'm hoping to fall in love and she and I will travel
together. Sappy I know, but what can I say, I'm hanging on to the
dream! Other stuff, I'm a musician and play in a band for fun. We
rent a jamspace on Capitol Hill. Humor is important. It's hard to
be funny online, but let me try with this joke I wrote. If you're
annoyed by this joke, or don't get it, we might not have a similar
sense of humor . . . big test, here it goes . . . how do monks get
inside their monastery? With a monkey
What I’m doing with my life
Until I win the lottery I'm continuing to evolve my professional
career. I feel that my best work is ahead of me. Oh, I don't play
the lottery so . . . yeah
I’m really good at
I'm a good dog dad to my dog. I'm a good designer and musician. I'm
creative and love to make things. I'm good at communicating but not
so much if there's a deficit of trust. I'm passionate which is good
for a creative person.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know. If I'm standing next to my twin brother they might
say "dude, why are you 5'-9" and your twin brother is 6'-3"? How
did that happen?" I'd say I don't know how that happened. Now that
I think about it, that kinda pisses me off. I'm going to talk to
him, find out how he did that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
OK, one thing, I'm more of modernist, or at least contemporary. I'm
not a minimalist, in fact I'm okay with lots of stuff, but I don't
like traditional, I want things to be unique and innovative. I love
the living room in the house of Charles and Ray Eames. As for other
stuff, I love to go out to eat. I wish I could do it more often.
One of my favorite authors is Russell Banks. I love the illustrated
books by Chris Ware. I like good fiction and scifi. Last movie I
saw was American Hustle and I liked it a lot. Music is a big part
of my life. I lean towards new music. I'm not a retro guy. One of
my favorite bands from years ago is Radiohead. I'm going to see
Russian Circles at Neumos soon.
The six things I could never do without
Friends, my dog, a sketchbook with lots of pens, a guitar, music to
listen to (Pandora is awesome) and the hope for many adventures in
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever I'm working on, especially if it's design or requires a
On a typical Friday night I am
I'd love to have friends come over more often. It's cool to be a
host. I like hanging out at home but I like going out as well,
either way. Fairly standard stuff here. Nothing to see, move along.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Everyone has baggage. I have small carry-on baggage, easy to carry,
nothing to hide, fits in the overhead compartment. Besides that I
think I'm proportioned well.
