My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A brief history of Tom:
I was born in SoCal, but lived most of my life in Boulder County. Double-majored in Electrical Engineering and Vocal Performance as an undergraduate at CU. Joined the US Army as an Arabic translator after the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Worked as a Systems Engineer for a couple years. Got my Master's degree in Signal Processing. And now I'm a Software Developer.

I was married to a great woman for 8 years during that time, but we got to a point where we just wanted different things. We're still friends, though, and her family even consoled me when I had to put our dog Drake down recently (damn, I loved that dog).

Interesting things I've done along the way:
I played soccer and baseball for about 10 years each. I've been a life-long skier. Dabbled in a ton of other sports, but nothing too serious. Won a few chess tournaments. Sung at a dozen weddings. Been in quite a few music theater productions, a few times as the lead; even was a principle dancer in a show. Sang the national anthem at a Niners preseason game.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Everywhere I look, I see happy couples with their children. That's what I want. I mean, of course I'd like to have success in my career, contribute in some small way something important to the world, have great and interesting personal experiences, but those sorts of things seem hollow to me without a family to share them with. I find it difficult to focus on anything else, to be honest.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Mainly using the ol' noggin. I'm also good at singing in the shower and stair-wells.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a white, middle-aged male in a white, middle-aged male-dominated society, so I stand out like a precious and unique snow flake that lands on your tongue. Yes, that one night, I was that snow flake, and you didn't even notice...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I have a deep appreciation for musical theater because of my involvement in it over the years. What's not to love about singing and dancing and spectacle! Beyond musicals, my favorite music is classical, well, technically from the Romantic period, but for some reason people lump all music older than the 20th century under the umbrella-term "classical". We're talking Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Schumann, Grieg, Vaughan Williams, Debussy, Ravel, Prokofiev, Rimsky-Korsakov, Mendelssohn, Liszt, and the like. I do like the other non-Romantic periods of classical as well, but I don't go out of my way to listen to them. I'm quite fond of big band and classic jazz too: Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Louise Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway, Miles Davis, etc. I don't listen to much contemporary music, but if pressed, I would choose to listen to artists like Ben Folds and Dave Mathews.

My favorite author is Ernest Hemingway by far. His books are a joy (though depressing) from the opening line to the last. Actually, the very last lines of his books tend to be my favorite: "Isn't it pretty to think so?" from The Sun Also Rises, and "He could feel his heart beating against the pine-needle floor of the forest." from For Whom the Bell Tolls. They only make sense within the context of the stories, but those lines are so moving and powerful. Only Shakespeare moves me as much.

My favorite movie is "October Sky". I find the story inspiring, and watching the rocket and shuttle go up and up makes me proud of the things humanity is able to accomplish.

TV? I don't own one and don't want one. If you want to know my tastes, I've really enjoyed Seinfeld, Malcolm in the Middle, and random documentaries.

I'm strictly vegan for ethical reasons. There isn't any (edible) plant that I won't eat!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Equality, independence, life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and self-evident truths! (And plagiarizing the Constitution).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Squeezing more stuff into my life. I feel like I work a little too much, and not work a little too little. As you can see, there's too much "little" in my life, and I need to find a way to private it. (Look up "privation" to interpret my use of "private" here).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
My Friday nights were jam-packed and awesome when I was in grad school. These days, I just work and exercise, though I plan on doing more interesting things in the near future.
