My self-summary
I'm an engineer, an artist, and an adventurer. Teach me something new about the world.

I've studied martial arts of one form or another my entire life: years of Taekwondo, a few years of Capoeira, and now historical rapier fencing. I love to cook, read, and travel. I will take apart almost anything I can get my hands on, just to see how it works or how it's made. I have a deep appreciation for clever, thoughtful design. I love listening to a well-told story. It doesn't take much to make me laugh.

I don't own a TV. I brew beer instead.
What I’m doing with my life
Weaving magic, intrigue, and suspense.
I’m really good at
Martial arts, massage, sewing, building things, fixing things, teaching. I can wind my way through iron bureaucracy armed only with charm and persistence.

I'm absolutely terrible at remembering names. And faces. This presents many unique challenges.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'd like to think it's my eyes. But that's just my vanity talking.
I'm outgoing and friendly, with an uninhibited sense of
humor.

Also... stop what you're doing, and go read The Story of B. Do it now. Really.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to survive the inevitable zombie invasion. And pirates.
On a typical Friday night I am
My Friday nights are never typical.
You should message me if
You dig my style, and profess an open mind.
