My sense of humor has gotten me in and out of trouble my whole life. Recently I took it to another level at Upright Citizens Brigade and completed four levels of the program there. It was an exhilarating experience that changed the way I think about creativity and how groups work together.
Honestly, this summary thing isn't working out very well, because I'm made up of seemingly disparate elements.
I'll just throw this at you: I own my own business, love snowboarding, I love shooting guns but I'm pro gun control, see my dad every day, took care of my mother when she was sick, pride myself in being consistent, consider my friends the family I choose, will cook for you or forty of your friends, have performed three wedding ceremonies and never been the best man, fought my way down to ground zero to hand out supplies on 9/11, and been held at gunpoint twice. I help people follow their dreams just for the satisfaction of it, give a hell of a back rub, have the voice of a newscaster and a stand out Belfast accent. I know my way around power tools, can speak knowledgeably about current affairs, am fascinated by the Higgs-boson, have an inexplicable jacket fetish, ride a bicycle every day, and make a martini that would knock James Bond off his game.
I have great aspirations for the future but never do I pursue those dreams without a constant appreciation for the day I have today.
