I enjoy throwing myself into a mosh pit at a metal show and earning a bloody nose, just as much as I like to curl up in bed for a weekend marathon of Star Wars and eating candy.
I've been riding horses since I was old enough to walk. One time I travelled a 100 miles in the mojave desert on a horse and got lost. Crazy story.
I like to dress in random costumes and run around town with many friends (usually singing). People wear costumes all the time.
I have a collection of interesting masks from all the places I've travelled to. I think it was Oscar Wilde who said, "Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth."
I love words. I love creating my own little strings of them. I can spend years finishing up a poem that has only four lines.
I hate crushing snails. When I see a squirming worm out in the rain, I like to pick them up and put them somewhere safe.
I absolutely love singing. I have rockstar fantasies that I live out at karaoke bars. I just won a Karaoke League Championship.
Consummate nerd and geek that breaks the meter and paradoxically takes the entire aesthetic into the hyper reaches of awesome.
I am currently employed as a software engineer at an amazing start-up that is doing a lot of social good in the world. Its one thing to make someone happy, its another to do good.
