My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a geek with an artistic streak. I love photography, both viewing (William Eggleston, William Christenberry, Stephen Shore) and creating (my photos have been described as "desolate", in a good way). I have now photographed every town/village/hamlet/ghost town in North Dakota (that's over 900 places). I love modernist graphic and industrial design. I listen to KEXP and The Current, though I don't go to hear live music as often as I'd like.

I live and work on Capitol Hill, and usually find myself hanging out with similarly geeky people. I have a harder time finding people into the same sort of art and design I'm into, though I am impressed with the number of people I know who can tell Helvetica from Akzidenz-Grotesk.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
When I'm working, I'm developing web-based interfaces to massive amounts of data. Outside of work, I'm into photography. I go on day-, week-, and month-long photography trips. I also go on the occasional hike in the woods.

I like spending my summers outdoors and my winters indoors.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at spotting Pavement Ends signs from a long way away.

Why is that, you ask? Well, I'm slowly working on photographing every little dot on the map in Washington (and have now finished North Dakota). This takes me to lots of middles of nowheres, and often, I find that I'm heading towards the next town on the map and I see a yellow sign off in the distance. If it's "Pavement Ends", that means I'm spending the next 20 minutes driving down a dusty road.
The first things people usually notice about me

is that I'm 6'5" (well, ok, probably only 6'4-1/2").

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'd like to think that I'm a pretty adaptable person and could find a way to enjoy myself in almost any situation. However, let's say I woke up one morning and found myself in Ulan Bator, Mongolia (a desert island's just too boring, sorry). The first things I'd want to find would be a camera and film. Then, I'd like to find a computer, even if the only thing I could get would be an old East German Robotron KC85 or an Elektronika BK-0010 or something. After that, hmm... Does "the intarwebs" count as one thing? That probably takes up the other four, at least.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Urban Planning. Yes, really. I walk around and I can't help but think how much nicer a place would be with a subway stop or more street-facing retail (both of which will eventually be coming to Capitol Hill).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I worry that my self-summary makes me sound unapproachable, but I don't know how to fix it.

I recently rediscovered that I still have a crush on a guy I was friends with from 6th to 12th grade.

I still make faces at myself in the mirror, as though I am still 8 years old.
