I'm a pretty introverted guy, really smart (most of the time),
prone to bad puns and self-deprecating humor; in other words, a bit
goofy and a bit nerdy. I tend to approach most things with an open
mind and honesty. I think this makes me a little too direct at

TV Dexter, Homeland (on the fence about much of

The Kingdom, basically anything created with care and a point of

In non-fiction, just finished The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson,
great book by an author with a wonderful voice.
The six things I could never do without

On a typical Friday night I am
It varies a bit; sometimes having drinks with friends after work or

some design project, or reading interesting but inconsequential
things on the internet.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I forgot to vote in the 2012 presidential election!
