My self-summary
My friends note I don't do things halfway. I approach with full passion and energy, jumping into a new adventure with both feet.

Carpe diem, carpe noctem.

My closet is organized by decade. It starts in 1066.

I once measured the number of books I had in total feet of shelving because I had 3 walls of my room with continuous shelving all covered in books. It was more than 100ft. Now most of those books are in a huge stack of boxes waiting for me to buy enough bookcases to hold them all.
What I’m doing with my life
Tech tech tech. Like all the other men in the Bay Area, I work in tech. I just started a job with the word architect in my title. If you're interested in such things, I do UI/UX, architecture, and front end development with a side of big data, healthcare, analytics, and data visualization.

I started up a non-profit that helps patients find clinical trials to discuss with their doctors. I worked extensively with the American Cancer Society until they screwed us over and we had to restart the whole project from scratch. I'm very proud of the fact that I was able to use the software I developed to buy a few extra years of life for a family friend with terminal brain cancer. I still help out the non-profit, but eventually I had to start making a living again, and it was too much work trying to eke out a living as a dancer, so I went back to tech.

In my spare time, I dance. A lot. I've been known to traverse the globe in pursuit of dance.
I’m really good at
I dance. I run my own event, teach workshops and classes, perform all over the place, and, travel the world to attend dance exchanges, and go out social dancing whenever I get the chance. Blues, waltz, swing, salsa, tango, Irish ceilidh, and just about anything I can groove my body to.

My dinner parties are epic. I've served every dish, including drinks, on fire. We had flaming glogg, brandy-fired mac'n'cheese, spinach salad flambé, steak au poivre with a cognac sauce, and fresh fruit with sugar torched on, served over ice cream, and lit with rum. Any other ideas for future themed dinners?

Also, two pounds of pork belly managed to make it into several of the dishes. Minus constant bacon snacking during cooking.

Also, I acquired a few calligraphy nibs, pots of ink, fancy paper, and sealing wax while in Cambridge. Caution! You may end up the recipient of a fancy letter covered in ink blotches and smears as I practice my calligraphy and wax stamping skills.
The first things people usually notice about me
Depends on whether they meet me on the dance floor or somewhere else.

Sometimes it's the hair.
Sometimes the dancing.
Sometimes an outrageous outfit.
Always my joie de vivre and hearty laugh.

My facial hair changes with the wind. Today I've got a well groomed Riker beard. Tomorrow it may be a handlebar mustache, mutton chops, or even clean shaven.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I thought I'd make this section more interesting than your usual laundry list.

I am a big fan of scifi and fantasy. I especially enjoy the works of Philip K. Dick, Heinlein, and Neil Stephenson. I also tend to read a lot of non-fiction about science, math, and philosophy. _Godel Escher Bach_ changed my life. I found a copy of The Alchemist in a park once. I ended up missing class for the rest of the day because I had to read it all the way through. Sadly, most of my books are in boxes due to a lack of shelving and space right now. If you can figure out how to support several hundred pounds of books on cheap plaster walls, I'm all ears.

I haven't been to a movie theater in years. I don't really pay attention to movies much anymore, nor TV. I tend to enjoy movies like "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind", "American Beauty", and "Amelie". I used watched Dr Who every week with friends after my Tuesday dinner clubs.

My musical tastes are a bit eclectic. Almost all music I listen to nowadays is related to some sort of dancing or another. Until I was 13 or 14, I only listened to classical music and opera. Only after discovering radio stations beyond NPR and classical music did I start listening to modern music.

I eat just about everything except canned meat (especially canned tuna) and brussel sprouts. I adore squash, green beans, bell peppers, and anything fresh and delicious. Cooking is a hobby of mine, but I'm content to just put a bunch of fresh vegetables in a bowl and call it dinner. Other times, I may prepare extravagant six-course meals for my friends. I also recently discovered how amazing pork belly is, and how much better than bacon it is.
The six things I could never do without
Dance.
Cuddle piles.
Adventures on the horizon.
Did I mention dance?
Amazing food.
Amazing friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Physics, philosophy, chemistry, interpersonal relations, mathematics, and whatever other topics enthrall me. I am constantly learning new things, and reading about everything. I have a thirst for knowledge that will never be quenched. I've recently been thinking about the post-work economy and how to handle a future where society simply doesn't need everyone to work.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out dancing until the wee hours of the morning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Just between you and me, I imagine my life as a checklist for those "world's most interesting man" commercials.
Ballroom dancer -- check
Sword fighter -- check
Chef, programmer, explorer, burlesque dancer, triathlete -- check, check, check, check, check

I learned all my important life skills from boy scouts: how to tie knots and use rope, start fires, and use sharp and pointy objects. Also, I'm GGG (go read some Dan Savage).

I want to get caught up in someone's life, and have them get caught up in mine.

When I'm having great adventures or enjoying myself, I don't bring a camera, especially when I'm outdoors/hiking/etc. Nearly all of my pictures are from dance events and performance gigs, where people are taking pictures of me purposefully. This doesn't mean I don't get out into nature or get silly, it just means I don't remember to document it.
