My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Gee, I hardly know where to start.... Perhaps by saying that this (like myself) is a work under perpetual construction).

Much Much more shortly..... I am trying to compose something semi-meaningful offline, and it should appear in the space shortly!

In the meantime, what will follow is more or less a series of lists and general comments that will hopefully present enough 'dots' to connect so that a profile might emerge.

I am an avid reader. Currently reading about both modern and historical piracy. I like to read about almost anything, particularly what I am focusing on at the moment.... art, science, history, philosophy, fiction even....

I think that the greatest cartoon ever to grace television is Rocky and Bullwinkle.

A random and incomplete list of things I have looked up or read about on Wikipedia in the last few days: Blair Academy, Al Flosso, Jackie Vernon, sundogs, chesterfield, the chordettes, piano, S-100 bus, comstock lode, action news, Jack Laird

Whew...
That Should be enough for now.

Lets see -- Keeping something like this brief.... or at least not to rambling.... here goes:

I have a college degree in philosophy and a mercurial and somewhat dyspeptic career in finance. I have always pursued the goal of being a modern rennesance man. My interests are very varied, and include science of many disciplines (life, physics, astronomy, much other), history of many flavors (military, science, technology and engeneering, Greek and Roman, others). I am a cinephile, have ecclectic musical tastes and love old technology.... just to scrape the surface.

I love movies with a particular interest in documentaries. The Annual Full Frame Festival is a personal highlight of my year.

I am also a really good cook.

I am Ecclectic, inquisitive, and creative
