My self-summary
Lets see, me in a quick nutshell. I spent way too long getting a BFA in Ceramics/Education and then proceeded to not use it to get a job in Art. Instead I lived in Japan teaching English to junior high school and elementary school children. After 5 years I returned to Idaho to pursue a degree in nursing. I still love making art, but its definitely more of a hobby now. I mainly hit up coffee shops to draw in my sketch book pretty regularly, paint the occasional water color, and shoot lots of photos with my cameras (yes plural). Other hobbies would include playing Double Bass in the BSU Orchestra and trying to find some other bass playing opportunities.

A few other things about me and my interests. I love riding bikes both of the bicycle variety and motorcycle. I also enjoy playing video games. This doesn't mean I spend countless hours at the keyboard/controller playing away, but I do have an occasional video game session with some friends. Board games are also something I enjoy. Monopoly and the like are alright, but I really enjoy games like Settlers of Catan, Bang!, and even a bit of Zombie Dice. I also really enjoy frisbee golf, but Im still a beginner.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently in the pre-nursing program at BSU and I apply for entrance into the program this fall. If everything continues going well, I will be accepted to the program this coming December. Lots and lots of interesting but difficult classes to go! Other than that, I try to find interesting things going on around town and have fun with my friends.
I’m really good at
Im a pretty good classical bassist and occasionally dabble in other genres. My first degree was in Ceramics and Education, so Im a descent ceramic sculptor, but it has been a few years since Ive covered my hands in mud.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, I hope it is my smile. If it is something else, please let me know asap.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Currently on my bedside table: Bonk by Mary Roach, several Sin City graphic novels, and Satiristas: Comedians, Contrarians, Raconteurs & Vulgarians by Paul Provenza. Ill try to keep the rest brief as I have a pretty long list of books and authors I love. The big 4 authors for me, right now, are: Kurt Vonnegut, Neil Gaiman, Christopher Moore, and Douglas Adams. Specific books that I love and have read way too many times are The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit, and the Iliad. Ive probably read each of those well over 10 times.

Movies: As you can probably tell from my book selections, I like witty comedy and a nice dose of scifi/fantasy/mythology, but Im not limited to those genres. This transfers over to movie preferences as well. Some movies that I can watch any day of the year are: The Hunt for Red October, High Fidelity, Pecker, Office Space, O Brother Where Art Thou... On second thought, I had better stop right there. I really love movies that get me thinking. Whether its about some deep philosophical idea/issue documentary or just how things might work in the real world.

Shows: I'll just list a few favorites: Bones, Breaking Bad, Californication, Weeds (first few seasons), South Park, 30 Rock, Top Gear (UK not US), and more.

Music: Music is a big part of my life. I play Bass in the BSU Orchestra and have played in small group stuff off and on for years. Its hard to describe my music tastes, but a general rule for me is, "Is the bass line interesting?" (see Primus, Rush, Bela Fleck, Pink Floyd...) I also really love odd, eclectic, thought provoking music. (Frank Zappa, The Residents, Tom Waits, Captain Beefheart). Music is something I really enjoy talking about.

Food: Food is awesome. I really enjoy trying pretty much anything. Something from my time in Japan that sticks out as memorable (not necessarily good) was salted squid guts. Or, that time i tried asp shochu (think vodka with a dead asp in it). I enjoy cooking, but I am far from great at it. Don't get me wrong and think that my food tastes awful. Its more that I cook good to great dishes but take a long time to do it. One of my specialties is Maboudofu (spicy tofu and beef) and I make a pretty good curry.
The six things I could never do without
Something new and interesting on a regular basis
playing music
reading interesting books
my bicycle
tea (real tea, none of that lemon grass stuff) and coffee
Oops, I went over my allotment of 6. The internet police are going to get me now!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The number 42.
I just like thinking in general. On any given day ill spend quite a bit of time thinking about life and the meaning of everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hmm, there is a pretty big spectrum of things that I do on a Friday night. Ranging from going for some beers and conversation with my friends/People watching downtown to curling up over some tea and a good book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have Hemophilia A. It has affected my life in many ways. Some good and several bad. If you have any questions about Hemophilia, please ask.
