Also, entitlement is a deal breaker and the
everything-happens-for-a-reason mantra drives me batty.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've worn many hats, and my current one involves two things I

I have agency. And for that I feel truly fortunate.
Translation: Building cool houses. Someday I hope to build my own.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening to my spidey sense.
I can sniff out funk from a long ways away. Likewise I'm quite

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably that I don't really look 38. After that, of late I've been
told it's my hands. This is probably due to the nature of my work.

Marvelous Music Making Me Move or Mellow (out)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Did you know that Bangladesh has a population of 156 million and
it's the size of Iowa?
The Schist disk. If you have any good explanations for what the
hell that thing is, or why it was made, please tell me.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Like Ice Cube, I like to think I'm down for whatever.

I'm looking for a real-deal-honest-to-goodness relationship. And
while I'm interested in many, I'm inspired by few.
To that end, I once heard Michael Chabon's wife say that she loves
her husband more than she loves her kids. My immediate reaction
upon hearing this was 'That's awesome- I bet those kids are great!'
Ideally I'd like something along these lines.
