My self-summary
I'm a friendly, easy going soul trying to keep a reasonable balance between having fun, spending time with people I care about, working towards some of my loftier goals and paying the bills.

Lately my personal philosophy goes something like this:

"There will always be people who tell you what can't be done and that you're a fool for trying. That's just friction. Friction makes heat. Go forth and set the world on fire."
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I work as a materials handler for a company that does R+D on semi-conductor manufacturing tools. Working around some very cutting edge technology and a group of bright people does a lot to keep my brain stimulated. The company I work for is Japanese, and so are many of the people who work there- sometimes I feel like I get to travel without moving. I'm taking the opportunity to learn Japanese since I now have a few friends that speak it.

Funny though, I had no idea I would land in this field. A fact I share in common with many plane crash survivors :P I have always enjoyed being outdoors, whether I’m camping, hiking, skiing, in a boat, or just relaxing in front of a big fire. When I’m out there alone, walking through a stand of massive old trees I feel the sense of awe that most people get standing in a massive old cathedral. That infatuation with the power and mystery of nature is probably why I decided to get an education as a forester (basically applied biology, ecology, chemistry and statistics).

I usually have plants of some description growing at any given time. As of April 2013 I'm living in a place where I can have a garden in my back yard. It's an arrangement I've wanted to live in for a long time so I'm glad I finally made it happen. I plan on growing a little bit of everything. Hopefully I'll meet someone who likes fresh veggies!

My main goal for the future is to own a modest house on a large swath of land , so that I can have a garden, an orchard, beehives, a distillery… and whatever else I cook up between now and then. It’s really a nice picture, up there in my head, except that it would feel hollow without someone to care about beside me. When I was younger, playing the field was fun and exciting and of course the prospect of meeting someone new still is. At the same time, I’ve had a chance to see who’s out there and damn, lets just say I’m ready to hold on to someone special when they come along.
I’m really good at
Anything I set my mind to. The only catch is I have to want it... bad. I suppose that's a blessing in disguise since there is more in this world than one person can ever do.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
All these lists are pretty long so I am procrastinating.

Carl Sagan - the perfect balance of skepticism and wide-eyed wonder
Arthur C. Clarke - optimistic, technically plausible sci-fi
Neal Stephenson - style, accurate detail and humor
Jared Diamond- Guns Germs and Steel explained so much in 500 or so pages that I feel like I'm still digesting it all 5 years later
Michael Pollan - made me think about food in a new way

Music -
Pandora-->BitTorrent-->Concert (if they're nice enough to come within an hours drive or so)

Food- I like dining out but also cooking for myself or company. I grew up in a small town, so I like me some typical American food but also really like trying all the different ethnic stuff Albany has to offer. I pretty much enjoy everything.
The six things I could never do without
1.) Biophysical necessities 2.) Good people 3.) The Metabrain, er, I mean the Internet 4.) Plants, especially trees 5.) Idle time/Sleep - this is where a lot of the good stuff gets generated 6.) Stimulation - intellectual, emotional, sensory, sexual, chemical, its all about the right thing(s) at the right time.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What to make for dinner. How I can be more self-sufficient. Building the ideal house- for me, not the stupid cookie cutter shit that people have been slapping together for the last 60 years.

One day I was thinking that it's kind of crazy that everything in the universe is made up a of combination of about 100 insanely small, inanimate building blocks. Out of the near infinite combinations of atoms possible, to our knowledge, humans are the only pieces of the universe capable of perceiving that they are living, breathing things yet made of non-living things which are small and numerous to a degree beyond comprehension.

I feel like our minds are the mirror through which the universe is finally able to observe and understand itself and see how amazing it all is. I can't help but think that maybe there is a God but instead of making the universe, God IS the universe, of which we are a part. To me then it seems like the most reverent yet simple thing a person can do is to seek out new experiences, pay attention and learn as much as possible. If I was the type to pray it would go something like, "Eyes open!"
