If I was you I'd just skip this next bit, right to the end and

I'm good with my hands and I'm the best masseur you haven't
for, and probably better than some.
Sometimes I feel like I haven't accomplished anything by 30,
realise I've done so much. I've worked in broadcast, I've run
own award winning games and web business for 5 years, I've
for years at a university, I've been an internationally
interactive artist. I've been head hunted to work in the
centre of technology.
I've had the best friends and family. I've got to meet some of
most amazing people In the world, and most of my heroes.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Meeting random people from all walks of life, and getting deep
inside their heads.
Forgetting people's names, but remembering stalker-creepy things
Helping to inspire others to do the most they can in their
Forgetting the lyrics and names of any song, but being able to take
a sentence from any situation and sing it to the snippet of a tune
plucked from anywhere in the last 50 years.
Turning up to every event I say I will attend.
Cooking. As long as the total time required is below 30 mins I can
do it. Unless its rice; somehow even in a rice cooker!
Dancing, with my eyes closed.
Allowing people to think I'm a lot more awesome than I am at things
so I have to live up to their expectations. And getting
Conflict resolution. That means listening.
Judging good art.
Finding great people in every city I've ever been in in the world
and ingratiating myself with them.
Teaching and inspiringstudents in design and programming.
Science. The biological kind. No I'm not making innuendo
Knowing way too much random information about many things - none of
them useful for winning at trivia.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I might seem quiet the first time you meet me, but that's only
because I'm happy not saying anything if nothing is needed.
Then again, you might just catch me on my talk to anything that's
not nailed down moments.

Hard to say.
All of it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A belief that problems have solutions
Art (the real stuff, not the IKEA stuff!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Science and biology.
How to get my work done. A programmer programs 5% of the time, 90%
of the time is spent staring off into space. The rest?
Why there are so many homeless people around here.
I used to spend more time thinking obscure things but I think I do
not currently have the fizzing effluent of multi-fringed and
competing minds around me. Need more time to digest ...
... thought I think my brain is slowly coming back from slumber.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
With friends. Out and about.
I wish I was in San Fran for real culture more often, which I miss,
