Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am often described as saxy. If you're looking for sax, I am your
man. Sax is something I enjoy almost anywhere, including my
apartment or on the beach. Sax is enjoyable at any time of day,
though it might annoy the neighbors if you do it too late. I will
drive up to a few hours for good sax. I like to be paid for it but
will provide sax for free also. Some might say I'm addicted to sax,
but I just enjoy it a lot.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I get paid to do weird science. So that's pretty interesting.
Otherwise I'm usually found annoying my neighbors with
saxophoning. I also try to exercise from time to time in order to
offset all the carbs.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am pretty good at telling computers what to do. Obviously music
is a big interest. But I don't like to brag. I am also good at
being modest. I guess if I were really modest I wouldn't say this.
Oh well. I am pretty good at downhill skiing. I have a
fantastically great sense of humor (obviously). I am a decent cook.
I get along with people pretty well, except if they annoy me a lot.
I work well with others towards mutual goals. Okay, sorry, now this
is starting to sound like a resume.
The first things people usually notice about me

This is a difficult question because it depends on the person. I
have bright blue, laser beam eyes, so sometimes that gets a
mention. Other times people notice my, uh, amazing sax skills or my
rather interesting personality. Perhaps you can tell me what you
notice if we meet and fill me in.

I am a bookaholic. I recently acquired a Kindle which is now my
preferred media for text ingestion. For awhile I was on a serious
non-fiction kick concentrating on popular science, physics and the
like. Carl Sagan, Brian Greene and Richard Dawkins are some of the
more well known authors. More recently I have been reading Sci Fi
and Fantasy short stories and novels. I also rather enjoy The Onion
I love music of all kinds. Old funk and soul seems to hit a sweet
spot, from the big names like James Brown to more obscure bands.
There are also a number of local bands in this genre that I
Jazz is also a big obsession, from which I take a lot of musical
inspiration. I mostly enjoy 1950's and 60's small groups lead by,
for instance, Miles Davis and John Coltrane. But I appreciate all
eras in this genre.
Who doesn't like food? Lately I have been really into seafood:
shrimp, oysters, tuna, scallops, hmmmm. Sorry ocean life. You taste
too good. As far as broad categories, I like Japanese, Thai,
Indian, and Italian. A plate of small tacos also hits the spot.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Though I'm gonna be out of luck when the reed breaks.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
About how truly awesome and incredible I am, of course.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Trying to learn more jazz standards.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

If I admit something then it is no longer private. Okay, how about,
I was arrested once in my wilder days.
