My self-summary
Originally from Iowa, I once flew to China sight unseen and without a job in an effort to see the world. I just moved to Madison from New York, so exploring my new surroundings has been interesting.
I used to cook for a living. I cooked for over a decade before I needed a new challenge. Now I've founded a company to work with the Red Cross to train soldiers in IHL.
What I’m doing with my life
Programming, swimming, sailing (when its warm), constructing random projects and learning random skills
The first things people usually notice about me
If you get past the shy, quiet phase you might find:
Bombastic (for shits and giggles)
Romantic (in the classical sense)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Fahrenheit 451, Another Roadside Attraction, Hot Sour Salty Sweet, One Hundred Years of Solitude, The Travels of Marco Polo.
I'm (slowly) working my way through The Years of Lyndon Johnson.
My bookcase is full of cookbooks and food-related nonfiction. I don't read nearly enough fiction and I'm trying to break that.

Harold & Maude (!), Empire of the Sun, Snatch, The Darjeeling Limited, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

Breaking Bad, The Wire, Pushing Daisies, Mad Men, Narcos, Doctor Who.

Rockability, Funk, Early Punk, Early Jazz, Warren Zevon, Erkan Ogur, Radiohead, Beck, Gregory Isaacs, Pink Floyd, Gilberto Gil, anything that I haven't heard before.
After much consideration, I would have to say that The Velvet Underground's, Loaded, is the best album ever made.

Sour sop, wild strawberries, toasted english muffins, kaymak, lamb, lemon verbena, banh mi, anything I haven't had before.
The six things I could never do without
