I didn't grow up in UT, but I've been here since 2000. I grew up in
Oklahoma for the most part. Lived in NC for a couple years and then
came UT to start a career.
I'm an engineer, and I love it. Yes, I'm a bit of a nerd, but I
have no problem leaving it at the office.
This past summer, I've started running, and so far I'm loving it. I
hope to sign up for my first real running event soon.
What I’m doing with my life
Building my career, saving for the future, while trying to make the
most of the present. I'm active in several MeetUps to keep social
and get me out of the house. Most importantly, I'm a dad to three
wonderful kids that I have 3 days a week.
I’m really good at
cooking, fixing things, supporting, making people laugh
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and my laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Seems like I read non-fiction more than I get to read fiction these
days, but I usually like a bit of both. For nonfiction I love
historical accounts of scientific discoveries; Simon Singh is great
for that. For fiction, I love the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,
The Hobbit, almost anything by William Gibson,...
Recently, I've been watching the new Cosmos, and I love it. I saw
Neil deGrasse Tyson with a group of friends when he spoke at the U
earlier this year. :-D I also love science fiction shows: Dr Who,
Battlestar Galactica, Black Orphan, etc. Lost was my last big
passion on broadcast TV. Everything I watch anymore is
As for movies, I'm usually watching stuff with my kids. So I don't
get to see many of the *good* movies. ;) Except for horror, I like
all kinds. Not big into the mindless action movies though.
I love all kinds of food and I love cooking for myself. My friends
tell me I'm pretty good. I love spicy food. I got a reputation for
fire eating (not literal) on my last trip to China.
Music is tough, because I'm sort of losing interest in my library.
I tend to migrate to electronic, alternative, and country acid
The six things I could never do without
Access to information
My glasses, until Lasik that is!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
relationships, the future, I always have a lot on my mind!
On a typical Friday night I am
I have my kids that night, so I'm typically out with them.
