My self-summary
Part Winston Wolf, part hostage negotiator. I'm a hired gun (brain?) making things better in the world of Biotechnology.

I swear like a sailor and go out of my way to be kind to children, old people and strangers.

I love the geekier things in life, the smarter things in life and filling up my passport.
What I’m doing with my life
Found a perfect career that allows me to take off for parts new and exciting for a few months each year. After this taste of freedom I have little interest in a corporate leash, no matter how gilded.

I fill my life with great friends, helping others, learning and laughter.

I love my beautiful friends, I love my beautiful life (this includes the friends that don't think they are beautiful- eventually they will understand that they really are).
I’m really good at
Helping

Collecting and connecting amazing people.

Going with the flow.

Hosting dinners, BBQs, cocktail parties, birthdays. I live for that kind of thing.

Singing. On special occasions I have been known to break out in song. I was in a drinking group with a singing problem in a past life and some of those sings are still rattling around my head,
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm an extrovert and I'm always smiling. Especially when I do something dumb like trip over nothing. I laugh at myself daily.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
a.) Stephenson, Heinlein, Azimov, Niven, Ellis, Moore (Michael and Alan), Jordan. I haven't read as much as I should lately. I'm sadly out of practice. I gave up the WoW, so I think i'll be picking more of that up now.

My guilty pleasures are campy fun movies.

d.) Food: Yes please. I make some fantastic OMFGBBQ.
The six things I could never do without
The internet

NPR

Podcasts

SCIENCE(!) (it pays my bills)

My friends. I am such a social creature. I love being around people most of the time.

Intimacy. (Sex is easy, intimacy is hard to come by)

My house. I've created a happy little nest that I call my own. I love it. It loves me. You may have seen it on the internet and you may have been drunk here.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What part of the world am I going to travel to when this contract job is up? (On the list so far is Greece, Iceland, France, Italy, Costa Rica, Belize, Brazil, Peru- I can't decide quite just yet).
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a night in with friends at my place to get our Sci-Fi Friday on. I'll cook for everyone, we drink cocktails while some enjoy the Sci Fi on TV, some spin fire poi, some soak in the spa or just have lovely nights talking with friends. My house has turned in to Cheers for the Nerd set. As one of my friends says "It's where everyone knows your Klingon name..."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was in the LA Times as one of those people that looks like their dog.

Yeah, I know. But he's rad and he didn't mind.

And I was in Doctor Horrible in a purple suit and got an IMDB credit out of it.

I am REALLY bad at taking my own advice. I'm getting better though.
