I'm still working on this. . .
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a technical writer for a local manufacturing firm. I create user manuals that ship with new products and that help customers repair existing products.
People usually don't know how to respond when I tell them of my profession. Is it a highly technical job? A boring job? Well, it can be a bit of both, depending on the project. But I find my work overall is usually both challenging and interesting.
When I'm not working, I try to relax. I live near Lake Michigan and sometimes just take walks. I occasionally tinker with my small collection of older European radios. For me, this is a stress reliever.

The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure. People at work often make comments about my messy
desk, which I think they notice first. I typically have a lot of
projects going on at once.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read the Wall Street Journal every day. I'm a middle-of-the-road person politically and don't always agree with their editorial views. But I still enjoy reading it. There's still no better source for corporate news.
Overall, I don't watch a lot of TV. Like most everyone else, I enjoy watching Seinfeld, even in re-runs. I occasionally watch public TV programs that involve political or historical subject matters, and I also tune-in to most of the political debates. However, I've never been a big fan of reality TV shows.
