I am curious about how things work. I like to create new things, mostly software but also hardware and geeky pursuits. I like to stay up late talking with other people, or just being inside my own head.
I like Dorkbot and Burning Man, and having fun. I run a Dorkbot in Sebastopol.
The world is an exciting and fun place-check it out some time!
I have three kids, they are wonderful and heathenish, they are with me 1/2 time, with my ex-wife the other half. I took the youngest, then 5, to Burning Man in 2005. He loved it. I took the oldest, then 18, to Burning Man 2007. She loved it. We are going back this year.
I like cooking, sometimes a whole lot, other times I am focused on something else and can be happy eating nearly anything. I think Thai Food, pho, and Jack in the Box tacos are comfort food. Sushi is good, and I make a mean pot roast.
I SCUBA dive off the California coast, like photography including taking big panoramas, spin with excitement at random things, read a lot, and mess with technology.
I have not been riding lately, but in 2006 my daughter and I rode our bikes along the Danube, and then from Prague to Vienna. We used our own bikes, and planned our own 'tour' - no sag wagon here! It was great fun. I capped that by camping in Vienna for a week while she went to a friend's house in Germany. I rode all over Vienna. Being a tourist on a bicycle is so much better than being a tourist on foot! I would watch people emerge from a museum, already foot sore, and face an infinite treeless, heartless, searing plane of asphalt. And I would wince, and feel sympathy, and empathy, and spin my legs a time or two, and coast the whole damn ordeal into the shade and a smile.
I am optimistic, enthusiastic, and candid
