My self-summary
Well, I just gave notice at my job of 7 years. The decision kind of snuck up on me in a most excellent way. I'm my happiest in years now. Taking responsibility for the course of my life makes it feel like an adventure again. Which really I think is how it should be.

And now I'm a board game designer and indie game publisher. I've had a passion for games my whole life, and early next year I'm publishing a game of my own design. I love board games because they bring people together around a table to connect with each other in a fun and new way. That's the secret of their magic, that they help us connect with each other. Working with that magic is my new calling. To answer it, I'm leaving behind a job protecting wilderness, a mission I'll miss. It's a big change, and I'm giddy.
What I’m doing with my life
Reinventing it, as explained above. I've taken the lid off my self-imposed limits, and I feel this tremendous shift reverberating throughout my whole being. It's rad.

On a related note, I have a daily meditation practice. After 10 years of meditating off and on, I attended a 4-day silent retreat this past spring and it was a tremendous catalyst for me.
I’m really good at
Food. I absolutely love to grow, cook and eat food. And it's always better when shared. The sensory experience and social culture around food make it one of my favorite things in life.

Detail-intensive creative projects. I thrive when working on them, and they play to my strengths. All the times in my life when I felt most alive and relevant, I was working on one. So I figured, why not feel that way all the time?

I love to learn. I'm incredibly inquisitive across a wide range of topics, and have become quite efficient tracking down information to satisfy that curiosity.

Being true to myself. Which means I am always growing. Listening to my heart is like having my own personal north star.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Most of these are more fun to discuss in person, and I just deleted all the lists I used to have here. Billy Collins is my favorite poet, and The Power of Now is the book that has most changed me. I adore a good story in any form, but I hold storytellers to a high standard. The role of story in our lives fascinates me, and I'm quite motivated by narrative in my life and the world around me.

Also, backpacking is one of my favorite activities. Communing with nature and friends is a fabulous combination!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Being more present. I'm working towards being more present without having to think about it, though!
