Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Intro paragraphs are a tedious exercise best left to writers (which
I’m not, by any stretch). I do better with lists, so here are a few
things you might want to know about me:
~ I was a daydreamer (and a bit chubby) when I was a kid. I learned
how to use humor as a sword, shield, and crutch from an early
~ I walk around the building my office is in at least three times a
day to think, talk to myself, stare at the sky, and just breathe
~ I wear jeans 95% of the time.
~ I have a career that I enjoy and I'll most likely spend the rest
of my life trying to master certain aspects of it.
~ I can be sarcastic to a fault. That's a nice way of saying I’m a
complete smart ass from time to time.
~ I over tip, I try not to pass judgment too quick, and I don't
care for rude people.
~ I smile for stupid reasons. I will make a fool of myself if it
gets a laugh.
~ I grew up just outside Kansas City (and still say "howdy"
occasionally without realizing it). I try to make it back to the
Midwest to see family at least once a year.
~ I like working with my hands and find that fixing things is
therapeutic in a way. My house has been in a perpetual state of
remodel for eight years (and “almost done” for at least
~ Kids don't seem to mind me. If I had to guess it's because I can
make goofy faces and still like playing with toys.
~ Being healthy is a big deal. I try to eat well and go to CrossFit
four times a week.
~ I enjoy cooking, but I’m terrible at it. If you could help me out
I’d greatly appreciate it.
~ I've traveled some and wouldn’t mind doing a bit more. The two
most incredible spots on the planet (that I know of) are the front
gates of Duomo di Firenze in Florence and Green Sand Beach in

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Arguing with myself (I always win), listening, and fixing things
(sometimes better at breaking them).
