To start I am, among other things, a programmer, skydiver, bookworm, triathlete and general lover of life. What about you?
I spent a good part of my youth living all around the U.S. and an extensive amount of time in the Middle East. I speak fluent Arabic. I am a professional tech nerd who does a lot of coding, design, and everything in between.
Most of my time is spent road biking, mountain biking, running, or reading. You can find me at Walnut Creek Park every week tearing up some single track, on the roads of northern Austin every day, and taking to the skies every weekend. I'm rarely without a book on my person and I always rise long before the dawn.
Brewing beer is a passion of mine and someday I will perfect my own private IPA. I just got into kegging, so I'll be jerry rigging a two or three keg kegerator for my concoctions soon. I also like boardgames a lot. Catan, DND, MoM... etc.
Ultimately, I live for the thrill of it all. There's always something new to experience and that's what gets me up in the morning.
In this regard I've always been a bit of a loner. I simply pursue what interests me without a care in all the world. Convincing others to join is me is just too much effort. For some reason, the idea of biking 200 miles to a "nearby" area for a 3 day weekend is not appealing to most.
