Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love to move. I'm not terribly picky, but running, throwing a
frisbee, hiking, biking, dancing like an idiot when no one else is
home, or just bouncing in place all push my happy buttons.
I can be a bit of a homebody, but that's more habit than
inclination. Beer and a wandering conversation at a local brewery
are welcome any time.
I tend to focus on function rather than form in my everyday life,
but can meander through a good art museum for hours.
I write in short, choppy sentences, with lots of comma splices. You
might have noticed this already.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
hanging out with friends, and writing code.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Teaching. I'm happiest when disassembling a complex idea for people
and helping them put it back together.
Learning. Usually by talking to myself as if I were a student. It's
a bit odd, but it works for me.
Managing people, speaking to large audiences, and navigating
workplace politics. If you had told me in high school that one day
I'd be even mildly competent at any of the above I'd have called
you a liar.

Home cooked anything, with the exception of fish (to which I'm
allergic), and eggplant (which is gross).
I love Thai food and sushi, but the fish allergy denies me most of
my old favorites.

New things to learn
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time sitting and letting my mind wander through
subjects by way of tenuous connections until someone or something
yanks me back to reality. This tends to generate a number of
in-jokes funny only to myself. Occasionally I forget this and
expect other people to 'get it'. I apologize in advance.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home reading a book. Out getting a beer with friends. Playing
board games. In the car on the way to a tournament. Lost in solving
whatever puzzle I've gotten my head tangled up in that week.
