My self-summary
Let's see...I've a wonderful sense of humor (a little dark), easy going, kind, knows how to have fun, responsible, honest...yup, sounds like...me? Hmmm, sounds like a lot of people...oh well, welcome to the mob.

Anyway, I guess I'll use this space to attempt to describe to you WHO I am...when I was younger I'd say to people I did three main things: "school, scouts, band"**. I've just recently polished off school, I've been done with scouts for over six years, and my chops are a little weak. So now, civil engineering has taken a solid roll, I still enjoy listening to music and playing when I can, and I suppose I've thrown a little brain power to "thoughtfulness" and concern; about myself, about life in general.

I've enjoyed the company of many people who've commented on my being a goofball and a nice guy, but lately (the past few years), I think I've gained the capacity for sustained awkward interaction.

But despite all things, I'm usually only moments away from a stifled giggle...here's to life!

**Just to clear the record, I am appalled at the shenanigans recently pulled by the Boy Scouts of America with respect to their continued discrimination.
What I’m doing with my life
Being fresh out of graduate school, where I studied geotechnical engineering (a branch of civil engineering focusing on soil and rock, and how to put stuff in/on it, like foundations and...tunnels, etc), I'm just trying to figure out my new job. Ideally, the seemingly unrelated drudgery, and discomfort from being a greenhorn, will set me up for a productive future in tunneling. Adjusting to life after school has been surprisingly difficult, but I can usually de-freakout after a gaze at the sunset through the well placed windows in my outrageously priced studio.
I’m really good at
Jerry-rigging
Using my belongings till they're seriously trash
Low Brass (tuba, trombone, euphonium; really good may be a stretch : ) )
Getting along outdoors; I've done a fair bit of camping/ backpacking, though I certainly haven't been able to hit the trail in quite a while, I look forward to doing so...
Belly Laughing.
Enjoying walks (sometimes getting lost in the process)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
I haven't read much fiction since high school, but I did pick up 1984 and Moby Dick on my own accord. I have made my way through a few books on history and philosophy...

Movies (hopefully the list will speak for itself):
The Great Escape, Happy Gilmore, Mr. Deeds, Lincoln, the Grumpy Old Men series, Gladiator, Uncle Buck, Nobody's Fool, Ace Ventura, almost all the Pixars, The Last Castle, Looney Tunes, Silly Symphonies, Iron Giant, Avengers (super hero movies in general), Marx Brothers.
I've also ravaged House of Cards, Hell's Kitchen, Breaking Bad, The Office, Louie, and Continuum

Music:
I've got a thing for Baroque music and Beethoven, but I've found repeaters in bluegrass, rock, techno, disco and world music... So, I won't put my foot down on a particular genre.

Food:
Let's just say, one summer during a camping trip I was nicknamed "garbage disposal". But I do know how to savor food, especially anything mint, eggnog (spiked!), and carrot cake.
The six things I could never do without
1. My brain and the illusion of free will
2. Smart people to learn from
3. Slapstick
4. Idioms
5. The tingly feeling when you hear great music
6. Second Hand Stores (save money and keep my contribution to landfill volume to a minimum)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether or not this profile is too long.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably watching a movie...probably with a beer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'd tell you something, but I'm really not sure where to draw the line between funny and inappropriate...
