My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
“Trust your heart if the seas catch fire, live by love though the stars walk backward.”

I am heart on sleeve, tongue in cheek, foot in mouth, and eye on prize...

I'm equally comfortable in the city or the sticks. I thrive on live music, good food, great conversation. I'll fly, drive, train, bus, hitch, or walk to almost any place in the world without knowing a thing about it, still I'll soak up every fact I can about places I've never been. I'm equally attracted to both scientists and artists, to both barnstormers and the gentle, modest types. I'm a big admirer of the little details. I'm happy when I can fall asleep under the stars to the sound of crickets and frogs, or on the coast listening to the waves breaking. I like waking up to the smell of coffee. Or to the early call to prayer from a Turkish or Moroccan mosque. I love the arts and art, the ballet, symphony, 5th ave theatre, SAM, funky little coffee shop/art galleries, graffiti on train cars... (and have you seen the firefly photos by Tsuneaki Hiramatsu?!!). Wenche Selmer is my all-time favorite architect and cucumber is my favorite flavor of dry soda. I work for myself. I'm a builder, an artist, a designer, and an entrepreneur. I love what I do and I'm good at it. I have a wonderful close group of intelligent, creative, and engaging friends that I've known forever and I'd trust to the end of the world.

I am well-traveled, well-read, and well-rounded
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Existential house-cleaning, streamlining vitality.
Striving towards simplification and sustainability.

I own a beautiful craftsman home in a great neighborhood that I have nearly fully renovated. I'm now slowly creating a japanese garden in the front yard...
I'm in a very fortunate position in my industry! I have a successful business that allows me to work with my friends, set my own schedule, and satisfies most of my artistic output needs! And I'm also growing an exciting new start-up from the ground up...
...and still making time for travel, fun excursions, and local mayhem!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
solving problems, unpuzzling puzzles, demystifying mysteries, taking houses apart and putting them back together in a most pleasing way, baking cakes, opening the world atlas to the correct page on the first try. Throwing a mouthwatering dinner party. Sustaining suspension of disbelief.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall with smiling eyes, sometimes with a halo (sometimes not!)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In the city: my passport, cameras, pick-up truck, cell phone, power tools, espresso machine, ipod,(Yes, I know, I can count)

In the real world: my good friends, music, sense of adventure, passion to learn, a great conversation over a great cup of coffee, art for art's sake, and, again, my passport! (Alas, perhaps I cannot count)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Building a house near trees and water, growing food.

Travel: To the South Pacific to see the culture and lie on the beach, to India to visit the temples and catch the festivals, and to Paris to capture a well-used vintage Staunton Chess set from it's homeland.

and Burning Man!!!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't really have a routine, could be seeing live music, heading out to the Peninsula, or, now that it's Spring, barbecuing black cod and salmon in the back yard with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can never seem to be on time for a Thievery Corporation concert...
