My self-summary
I am a data architect who would rather be a museum curator. Writing fiction is where I wanted my career to start; writing code is where it ended up.

I spend my time with friends playing board games (Ticket to Ride, Settlers of Cataan, etc.), drinking craft beers or single malt Scotch, and/or watching soccer. My alone time is spent with my dogs, reading (science fiction, historical fiction, social sciences, newspapers, and comic books), listening to music (classical, jazz, or alternative/independent rock), learning to play piano, and/or playing computer games (Civilization for example).

I enjoy traveling, having last been to Seattle (Sounders, symphony, and SAM). More often I travel to Kansas City, Minneapolis, and Chicago. Wherever I go I enjoy visiting museums, exploring used book stores, going to a jazz club, attending a performance by the symphony, and cheering the local soccer team.

I once read something where a woman was wondering where all the men with passports and library cards were. If that's you, I have both (though sadly I haven't used my passport in a long time).
