I love to cook! Many international cuisines, from Indonesian to
French. Wood-fired grilling, from brasilian to dry-rub, on my
homemade negative carbon-footprint setup. Prometheus was an amateur
pyro in comparison.
I love to host and take care of people, from just one to a hundred
guests -- no problem. And at family events, if I can't charm that
salty auntie, no one can!
I am great at my job, leading teams who create amazing software,
for business results. I'm an expert facilitator...it's my
I am a talker (and then some). I get to trust right away with
people. My silver tongue matches my prematurely grey lid (I refuse
to colour my hair, or temper my wit).
I know more than a little about almost everything, cultures,
languages, science, art, politics, history, geography, you name it.
Consequently, I win at trivia games and excel at banter.
I can rip up a dance floor, but I find "structured dance" like
Salsa counterintuitive -- I just like finding the beat and going
with it. I'm a shameless grinder.
I like writing, but I don't get much practice these days. I am good
with kids, it's because I am a big kid too. I love people, I'm the
consummate people person. I'm a decent graphic designer, awesome
with Lego, and I speak dog.
I can jet though airports like George Clooney. I've worked in more
cities than I can remember, and travelled extensively on four
continents. I've taken over 2000 flights, all in. But I'm not done,
by a long shot. Places I've yet to be but would love to go with
you: (South)East Asia, South America, Africa, the Arctic.
Athletic / outdoorsy / adventurous stuff: I play hockey, I cycle, I
sail, I hike, I swim, I can't even list out all the stuff I like to
do, but I'm not a freak about any of them. I just like everything,
which maybe means I like nothing.
Oh, and handy? I've got plenty of power-tool prowess. And you
thought YOU could handle studs.
Not long on brevity, however.
