Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I "got out" of the Midwest and moved to Colorado a few years ago to
pursue a career in brewing. I like technology for its own sake and
feel that censorship is the ultimate expression of fear. I think
I'm funny but I'm probably not. I enjoy long walks on the
Really, if you want to know about me, let's have a conversation. I
have no idea what to write here.

use the phrase 'upside the head'." - Bender
I am lucubrious, aloof, and frequently cynical.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In the summer, running occupies a lot of my time - or energy, at
any rate. Each winter I seem to get a bit more into skiing. Any
potential gains are offset by beer-related activities, or wasting
time on the internet, mostly geeking out about beer and/or running
(statistics ftw). We're both geeks or you wouldn't be reading this,
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Growing a beard. Gaming Pandora to play the song I want. Verbing
nouns. Brewing. Laughing at my own jokes. Words with Friends.
Karaoke-ing (this is not the same as singing). Verbing nouns.
Repeating myself. This will get me in trouble, but... skiing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a very dry, self-deprecating sense of humor that sometimes
spills over into just plain deprecating. So I'm sure that more
often than I'd like people notice that I make fun of them right off

I read a book and watch two or three movies a week - escapism
maybe? I like science fiction and pulp fiction, but also things
that make me think about something new, or maybe just differently.
Lately I've been reading a lot of historical and alternative
fiction. Of course, I find a reason to refer to one brewing text or
another pretty much daily.
Music! I'll give anything a shot, from a cappella to zydeco. A good
litmus test: is there instrumentation other than a beat machine?
Most country still doesn't make the cut. I'm probably the only
person who bought the second OK Go album (it's really good!).
I like lots of foods and can often be found cooking a dinner that
will be hours late and of questionable quality. I have no
reasonable access to sushi, and I find myself craving it more than
is probably reasonable. I'm a little miffed that unless I'm
vegetarian/vegan, my only option on here is "anything", like I
don't care what I shovel into my gullet.
I eschew lists.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A computer, a good pair of running shoes, and a quality beer are
all it really takes to make me happy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to pluralize words borrowed from foreign languages. Is it
"alumnas" or "alumnae"? ("Alumni" is incorrect, obviously.)
"Bureaus" or "bureaux"? These are the thoughts that kept me out of
the really good schools.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Home recovering from the day, more often than not. Work makes my
social schedule... let's say "fluid".
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I'd like to produce/direct/star in a stage production of Dr.
