I moved to Boulder in May '12 from northern New York after deciding
that it was time for something new and exciting. I really enjoy
exploring the area (admittedly mostly from the car), taking photos,
and tinkering with my car, my computers, and whatever else I can
get my hands on.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a growing start-up in Boulder as a Web Developer, but I
really end up being more like a jack-of-all-trades. I also
volunteer a few nights a week at Community Cycles teaching
Earn-A-Bikers what direction to turn a pedal wrench.
The first things people usually notice about me
For the lack of a better word, I'm a techno-nerd. I find technology really fascinating and as a byproduct, I have a lot of gadgets: Pebble watch, Nexus 5x, that kind of thing. But don't worry, I don't have a utility belt or anything too ridiculous.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: In high school and college, I used to be a lot more into the indie music scene, but my music taste as of late has gotten a little more main stream. Favorite bands: Modest Mouse, Death Cab, old Eve 6, and Third Eye Blind. Concerts this year: Passion Pit w/ Matt & Kim, Postal Service, El Ten Eleven w/ Bonobo, Of Monsters and Men w/ Vampire Weekend. I'm also planning on volunteering at Bonnaroo (applications on March 18th!).
Shows: Rick and Morty, Archer, Modern Family, Parks & Rec, Breaking Bad and Harvey Birdman
Movies: Brick, Lucky # Sleven, Seven Psychopaths, The Big Lebowski, Donnie Darko, The Bourne Series
Books: The Martian, Ready Player One, The Andromeda Strain, Prey
The six things I could never do without
- A shower
- The Internet
- My car
- Something to do
While I couldn't live without these things, a week away from them
wouldn't kill me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can make things cooler: web apps (twitter & maps
mashups), modifying my car (vegetable oil fuel kit), clocks made of
Ok, well maybe I have a skewed perception of what "cool" is...
On a typical Friday night I am
teaching Earn-A-Bikers how to work on bicycles or card/game night
with friends and room mates.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Although I volunteer at Community Cycles and convince other people
it's a good idea to commute by bike, but I would much rather drive
my car than bike to work.
You should message me if
you're outgoing, aren't too far from Boulder, and find any of the
above remotely interesting. If you choose to send me a message,
please make it engaging! Tell me something about your or ask me
something about me, just don't ask "Hi, how about this weather?" or
the like, it's hard to go anywhere from there.
