My self-summary
I eat the crust first on my pizza and the center bite of my burger last (it's the tastiest, and has a little of every ingredient).

I like to keep things simple. I charge my batteries at home. I wake up excited about the day to come, and the things I'll work on and create. I'm right where I want to be, save for finding that a special person to share it with.

SALES PITCH: In summary I'm driven, smart, financially independent, in a great place in my career, charming (I've been told), gentlemanly, self aware, looking for those little adventures. I do my best to improve.
What I’m doing with my life
Took my first swing class a bit ago. It was fun. Turning my ideas and efforts into money via the magic the is computers.

Planning a giant industry event since there is no one else to do it.

Now it's planning presentations for a few events I'm speaking at. Also slowly refurnishing. I'm terrible at picking out quilts. Need help.
I’m really good at
Rock paper scissors.

Getting to the crux of the problem. Figuring out exactly how two people are talking at cross purposes.

Cutting pizza in a specific way to keep it hot.

Teaching

Fitting everything I need in a single carry-on bag during flights.

Creating meals from strange leftovers that are delicious.

Kind of an evolution buff and geek out on science videos, in particular evolution. What to cook. If I missed a break to escape the while loop.

Fighting crime in spandex tights. Looking for someone who can keep up on my adventures.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have on occasion spelled a word so poorly that even google can't make heads nor tails of it.
