My self-summary
I'm a human. So if nothing else, at least we have that in common.

I'm a software developer to pay the bills and a playwright on the side to let the creative impulses loose. I love animals, play the piano, and bake the world's best cinnamon-kahlua brownies, not to brag or anything. I took improv classes to get out of my comfort zone, and now I'm still taking them because they're a ton of fun.

A major travel bug bit me and now the whole world's pretty much on my bucket list. So far, I've visited twenty-four countries — met amazing people, seen so many new perspectives, and discovered gumption and superpowers I didn't know I had. Like when I was lost in Sofia. Did you know I can speak Bulgarian? Neither did I.

My close friends would say I'm anywhere from mindless silliness to total brainiac depending on the who, what, where, when, and sometimes why, and if I'm truly on fire, I can do both at the same time. Also, if I'm truly on fire, please douse me in water and foam. Much appreciated.
What I’m doing with my life
Building our little corner of the internet at a start-up. Performing in improv shows with some friends. Valiantly fighting a losing battle to keep my apartment relatively clean.
I’m really good at
Putting ideas down on paper and finding the perfect words.

Programming computers and forcing them to do tedious math.

Building awesome blanket forts.

Being on-stage in front of a crowd and not freaking out. That one always surprises me.
The first things people usually notice about me
"That guy looks like he's thinking about something profound and mind-blowing."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig, Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid by Douglas Hofstadter, Grendel by John Gardner, Wit by Margaret Edson, What If? by Randall Munroe.

I listen to mostly indie rock at home, bubbly Top 40 pop in the car, and the soundtrack to the movie Gladiator at the gym.
The six things I could never do without
Family.
Friends.
Good coffee.
My laptop.
Free time.
Groundless optimism.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Moving into my first pet-friendly apartment, and the shelter dog I'll get as soon as I do.

My itineraries when I finally get to ride the Trans-Siberian Railroad, or hike Mt. Kilimanjaro, or go dogsledding in Finland, or...

Why Python is so much better than Ruby.
On a typical Friday night I am
Up for anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I listen to Chumbawumba on a continuous loop at the gym.
You should message me if
Honestly, I can't think of any good reason not to message me.
