I am a science junkie, sailing enthusiast, mystical experience seeker. I am wary of saying things which begin with "I am". Often best to just leave it at that.
I love to invent and design. My first job out of highschool was the only one I searched for; everything else I have done found me from there. Know that you are waiting, and know what you are waiting for; and while you wait, feast your eyes upon the world.
I do computery stuff at an investment advisory firm. I didn't start out with any finance background, but it does present interesting problems to solve. I run the group which creates the software systems on which the company operates; there is something very satisfying about creating things and watching them make your friends & coworkers lives easier. I can rock business drag but am more of a hippie at heart.
I have a sweet little hand-me-down sailboat in the harbor, which consumes a lot of summer time. There is something great about being able to just sail for a few hours, drop anchor in the lee of an island, see the Boston skyline in the distance and yet still feel like you're in another world. I think that steering a sailboat close-hauled into the wind is one of the most zen activities there is; intense yet quiet, powerful yet subtle. A body memory worth forming.
I can be quiet and thoughtful, yet I like to laugh and make others laugh. I think storytelling is a fine art. The feeling of discovering a new idea, a new way of thinking, or how something works, is lovely; sharing your discoveries with someone else who enjoys them as well is even better.
I like to lose myself in music. I play a bit of piano / keys, and love analog synthesizers. I rock out sometimes on an electronic wind synth, which I am pretty enamored with. I am oddly better at improvising than playing something structured. I usually have a musical theme looping in the back of my mind somewhere. BYO soundtrack.
I like to read and think about science, it often gives me goosebumps. But I am something of a goosebumpslut.
When those around me are anxious, I grow calm; when I see someone despair, I fill with hope; but I try to sync up for joy & wonder with another.
I like feeling things as much as I like understanding things, and I am drawn to people who see the difference between the two.
People who are free to be what they feel make me smile.
