What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Karate is a major focus in my life. I am in the dojo usually 2-3
days a week.
Working on being healthier. I try to eat right and get enough
exercise to make a dent in my life.
Lately I have picked up basic pinball repair as a hobby. I do not
own any pins but I do volunteer at the pinball museum in Alameda
helping to maintain the machines.
I live less than a mile from my job so I walk to work everyday. I
build & maintain computer systems for a hospital. I like that
my work has a positive impact on peoples lives.
I used to play more video games in my life but I have replaced that
habit with more board games and tabletop gaming usually preferring
to game in person than via some sort of network connection.
I love going to the movies and it is not uncommon for me to go to
the local movie theater more than once a week.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am tall... very very tall. After that it would probably be the
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

to the Galaxy

TV: Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, The Wire, Sherlock
Food: I'm fairly adventurous when it comes to food. I love trying
new places and new types although there is something about Chinese
food in general that doesn't respond well with me so I stay away.
Love Indian, sushi, Mexican, Italian, etc. I love to cook as well.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Replays on games of pinball: I love hear the knock of the machine
as I accomplish a high enough of a score to win a free game.
My Family. They don't live in the area anymore but I try to call
the parents at least once a week to keep in touch.
My Karate Dojo: They are a wonderful extended family. Also it is a
magical oasis of peaceful sanity in my life.
My kindle: I am on my 3rd one and have been without it twice in my
life. People in my neighborhood remark at me when I am not walking
down the street with my nose in my kindle.
My Tivo: I was an early adopter so I had a DVR for over a decade
now along with the TV watching habits that go along with not
watching this as they air most of the time. I love not having to
worry about watching TV because my DVR will automatically tape it
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Story ideas that I dream up. Sometimes I have problems
concentrating on anything except what I want to dream up. I usually
keep a notebook handy in order to work through my ideas.
My karate. I spend a lot of time thinking about how to improve my
karate. What I can improve, what I need to practice more, and what
I can do to help fortify my skills. When I am in the dojo
especially the only thing I am thinking about is my karate.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Commonly I am gaming with friends, at a pinball party somewhere, or
if it is 2nd Friday of the month I am at the New Parkway for the
monthly MST3K mystery movie.
