My self-summary
I have a very unique sense of humor that ranges between sarcasm and absurdity. I keep a clown nose in my desk drawer at work and have been known to use it to diffuse contentious situations. In short, I take things seriously--just not very often.

I can be a very good listener and I've been told I give very good advice. If you can make me laugh most likely we'll become friends (as long as you're willing...it takes two to tango). I'm also a history/useless fact buff, but I try not bore my friends with historical anecdotes. In the "real world" I have been directly involved in every single foreign policy crisis the United States has faced since 9/11 and it's been a very interesting an humbling adventure. I certainly haven't saved the world, but there are places in DC where one person can make a difference.

My favorite type of person is someone who is curious about the world around them. I believe that the difference between just being alive and actually participating in life is simply a function of wonder. What I mean by that is if you can muster the effort to ask the question, "why" about even the mundane things around you, it's likely that you'll be fun to talk to.
What I’m doing with my life
Creating interesting exploratory adventures for myself and others out west through some of the most rugged and beautiful country I have yet seen; inventing things; repairing antiques that didn't work and making them better; crafting furniture out on my balcony and trying to figure out how to create things without a full workshop. I've worked in foreign policy for over 12 years and I don't think I'll will be leaving public service anytime soon.
I’m really good at
Fixing things that are broken. Understanding people and their motivations, and mastering new technologies. Finding adventures...I can generally find a fork in the road and by luck pick the road not taken.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I look young. I usually get carded and on a few occasions have been accused of having a fake ID because the DOB doesn't seem right.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot of non-fiction, especially science and medical literature. Right now I'm plowing through "Awakenings." I miss the days when you could watch decent documentaries on TV. Now it's crap like "Modern Marvels, the History of the Doorknob."
The six things I could never do without
air, water, food, shelter, dry socks, my ipod (I have an iphone, but don't use it for music; isn't weird that ipods are sort of on their way out?)

Everything else is pretty negotiable. As a kid I did a lot of long term camping and trekking so I've learned to do without a lot of things. When I was in 8th grade I walked 50 miles in 19 hours wearing duck boots. I didn't get a man card for this, just a patch.

But then again there is the chapstick addiction...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The nature of the universe; the names of crayon colors; where my missing socks actually go; wondering if smart phones and social media make us less connected or more connected.
On a typical Friday night I am
If it's been a tame week at work, I'm going to bed a little earlier and hoping for a sunny day an adventurous weekend. If it's been a crisis week I'm probably on my couch clearing my DVR out or better yet, reading a good book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I recently discovered that the tooth fairly is not real.
Shhhh.

You have a random sense of humor and like to be silly. You are intellectually curious. You like to explore the world around you.
