I prefer getting to know people through conversations rather than
profiles and quick emails. I like interesting, intelligent fun
people who enjoy life.
I'm a good cook, a decent artist when I feel like it, and a
terrible bowler. I can be shy at first but open up fairly quickly
and love hanging out with people and having fun.
I like spending my time camping, hiking, bicycling, doing yard
work, playing in the park or going for walks. I also like sailing,
watching the stars, cooking, wine tasting, reading books, going to
the movies and hanging out with friends. This is of course when I
am not building Lego towers, reading books, watching TV and playing
According to my friends I have a somewhat warped sense of humor and
should try to curb it. I don't though.
I am trying to be less busy so I have more time to spend with
people having fun. There is just so much to do in Seattle.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

reasons I love my job.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
In no particular order. Organizing, camping, sailing, paperwork,
research, cooking, dancing, weaving, laughing, reading upside down
books out loud.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The state of the universe. What my next project will be. How to
reduce the amount of junk mail in the world. What to cook for
dinner. How to fit more hours into the day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I go out, I stay home, I go camping, I go away, I cook, I eat out,
I see people, I watch TV, I listen to music. I don't have a typical
