My self-summary
I am a skier, a reader, a Sunday-napper, a planner, an occasional runner/gym-rat, a thinker, a gregarious laugher, a door-opener, a beach-lounger, a scruffy-facer, a teeth-flosser, a non-breeder, a reformed Catholic, a Nebraskan (Omaha), a Texan (DFW), a Californian (SF), a Washingtonian (Downtown Bellevue), and a space-cowboy.

I am fairly handy and have laid ceramic tile, changed the oil in my car, hung doors, performed some creative wiring for a home network, and field-replaced an iPod battery with a ballpoint pen and bits of a business card while staying at a Holiday Inn.

I am also fairly fancy in that I own my own tuxedo, enjoy the symphony, can wander aimlessly (and with eyes full of wonder) at art museums, am more than willing to pay way too much for a steak (if it is worth it), and believe everyone over the age of 30 should own a good frying pan.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently a Titan of Nerd Herdery - leading a team of developers who are working on one of dem fancy new internet mobile thingees. My job is weird and difficult and frustrating and occasionally all-consuming...but crafting and executing the perfect plan makes me go all kinds of squishy inside.

Before I became entrenched in the technology world - I managed a car wash, sold advertising, worked in the makeup department of a large metropolitan newspaper (heels not required), and parked cars at a 4-star hotel (amazing free food).
I’m really good at
• Making people laugh (if you knew me this would make you laugh)
• Folding fitted sheets
• Recently found out I was was pretty good at baking bread - working on elevating this to "really good"
• Planning, estimating, scheming, plan hatchery...I may have been a super-villain bent on world-domination in a former life...or an elementary school teacher...same difference.
The first things people usually notice about me
Likely my horrible selection in footwear, but have heard good things about my eyes (my mother gave them to me...).

Also that I am tall, built like the prototypical Midwestern corn-fed-beef-fed boy, that I wear silly t-shirts, am ridiculously polite to waitstaff, that I shave my head, that I talk to dogs like they are people, and that I open doors for everyone.

Alternate Answer: People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks.

Oh - and if I had to subsist on beer, cheese, bacon, and bread (and coffee) for the rest of my life - I would die happy (and likely from a heart-attack).
The six things I could never do without
• A shelf full of books (and a couple of random piles)
• A kitchen full of ingredients
• My super-awesome skis (they're green!)
• Lagavulin 16
• Computers (no other marketable skill)
• The Adam Carolla Podcast
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ways to quit the day-to-day grind and acquire employment at a free-range dog ranch in Montana.
On a typical Friday night I am
My job has been kicking my ass Monday-Friday (and a couple of Saturdays) lately, so blowing off some steam and taking my brain offline for a bit has become mandatory on Friday nights of late.

Maybe a nice a glass of Scotch in my big leather man chair...some random DVR-cleanup...idle flipping through a cookbook noodling over an upcoming bread experiment...mayhap* staring blankly at that one spot on the wall...thinking about what you are doing.

*Love this word - thanks to Stephen Kind for bringing it to my attention.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I killed a DJ over a pound of French roast…that was back when you could do that kind of thing. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMqutKBS5iE)

Alternate Answer: I have two bachelor degrees. One in the fairly obvious Dark Nerdly Arts - the other in the way less profitable News-Editorial Journalism. Yeah...my technical resume adheres to the AP Stylebook and my emails are rife with Oxford commas.
