I'm in the thick of my second novel (if you want me to talk your
ear off, just ask about either the first one or this current
Steadily working my way towards a six minutes mile. I really love
trail running in the woods surrounding campus.
The coffee table of my apartment is littered with art supplies and
doodled upon drawing paper.
I enjoy my recreational weed smoking, and once in a while I've been
known to imbibe a festive adult beverage or twelve.
I've got a tablet that is both wondrous and terrible. Wondrous in
that I have basically constant access to the library. Which for me
is terribly distracting.
I still consider myself a gamer but it occupies less of my time
these days. Pen and paper, computer, console, board games, LARP. I
can get down, any system, any time. Usually I'm running games
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing - publishing and being paid for stories. Hoping to turn it
into my primary income.
Reading and literary analysis - want to talk symbolism in
Frankenstein? Dissect some Dostoevsky? I've got a keen eye for that
sort of stuff.
Soccer - I've played since I was five. Not competitive any more.
Maybe I'm just good at loving soccer? Hmmm. Ooh well, Go
Running - I'm a better sprinter than distance runner.
Empathizing - I always try to see the opposing sides in arguments.
Even if some of those arguments are stupid.
Being a social chameleon - seriously, I can fit fairly well into

I don't watch much TV. From time to time I binge on Netflix. Just
like everybody these days I suppose. Recent favorites...
Supernatural - gold through season five. Haven't been able to get
through sixth season.
Fringe - loved the show premise. Plus it had the kid from the
Restaurant Impossible/Chopped/Good Eats - hypnotic,
Planet Earth/Life-esque shows - especially on high def after a
little herbal supplemented breathing.
Steak, ribs, BBQ in general

That everyone is telling their own story, each day, and that's what
we call life.
Art, in all its various forms and guises. What qualifies any given
subject as art.
The ways we, humanity as a whole, communicate with one another and
why we resort to violence to do so.
All the amazing orders of magnitude and wondrous possibilities that
life presents us each day. I find the infinitesimal and the
infinite equally astounding. (PS. The Ant Man movie looks

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Checking another play from the folio off of my research list. BBC
has a pretty decent complete works and I just saw a 90's Othello
with Laurence Fishburn that was pretty sweet. Writing. Running.
Getting excited for Sounders soccer!
