My self-summary
Well I'm an Engineer. I work for an aerospace company that supplies machines to Boeing and Airbus. I've lived in Seattle most of my life with the exception of 4 years of college in Bozeman, Montana. I miss the big skies and countryside, but I'd rather live in Seattle where there's lakes, oceans and cities and visit Bozeman than the other way round. I'm a little nerdy, but mostly normal. I like cars. Working on them. Driving them. For outdoor activities I like to ride bicycles or camp and hike. I'm also a big film/photo fan. I don't have a lot of time to indulge, but I do take my DSLR with me most places I go and try to capture interesting or descriptive images of the world I see.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm really kind of making it up as I go along. For now I'm working and having fun. Working on my homebrewing skills. Keeping my three old german cars and a 30 year old motorcycle running takes up a lot of my time, money and sanity. Mostly I try to enjoy being a privelaged white male as much as I can while not denying that there are millions living in poverty.
I’m really good at
Not being a craptastic douchebag and instead being a genuinely kind person. A concept which many people seem to struggle with.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not sure really. I'll ask around and get back to you.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I'm not a big reader, and when I do it's non-fiction, so literature fanatics beware, I may have no idea what you're talking about. Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed by Jared Diamond, and The Gun by C.J. Shivers are what I'm reading right now. I love Mary Roach's writing. Packing for Mars and Stiff are extremely entertaining and well researched.

Movies: I'm a movie buff, so I have a lot of favorites. Most recently I've watched Good Night and Good Luck and Lawrence of Arabia. I like psychological thrillers, and anything that has interesting/beautiful cinematography and of course the normal goof-ball comedies and action flicks. Some of my favorites are Ronin, Grand Prix, Inception, The Graduate, Letters from Iwo Jima, Children of Men, Airplane!, The Master, Tropic Thunder, Catch me if you Can, Death at a Funeral (UK), Iron Man, The Truman Show, Lord of the Rings, Cliffhanger, Rear Window, Young Frankenstein, The Maltese Falcon ...the eclectic list goes on.

Shows: I don't have cable, but I do have netflix. I enjoy watching HBO/showtime shows when I can. Veep, House of Cards, Dexter, Curb your Enthusiasm, Venture Bros, Archer are the only shows I've really religiously watched. I get tired of characters and have trouble watching entire shows season after season, but those are some I find worth watching. Top Gear is my favorite TV show ever, hands down.

Music: I'm always challenging myself to increase my music knowledge. Music is so ubiquitous these days that I feel like I'm always listening to music, but never really choosing it. I'm trying to be better at that. Here's what's in my history right now: Capitol Cities, Major Laser, Flume, Beethoven, OK Go, Ratatat, Buffalo Springfield, The Doobie Brothers, Modest Mouse, The Black Keys, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones

Food: Mmm...Open faced club sandwich. I'll eat almost anything. I fell in love with Indian food when I lived in the UK for 4 months. The British food was mostly terrible, but they had the curry, and naan thing figured out. Mexican food is probably what I eat or make myself most often. A good burrito is heaven wrapped in tin foil. And of course nothing beats a good burger and a good beer. It's probably important to note at this point that I have little patience for picky eaters. They like to ruin restaurant meals and are generally not adventurous individuals. Allergies or different diets are a different story, but don't tell me you just plain don't like something because it has tomatoes in it and refuse to try it.
Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Clouds, Space, how things work and how they were made, Bosch Motronic fuel injection, music, Fish, Big Sky country, new beer recipes and names, new adventures
On a typical Friday night I am
Out getting food and/or beer with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My work passwords usually contain goals or commandments written to myself. It helps me remember what the hell I'm trying to do with my life.
You should message me if
You want to go on a nice date and see what happens.
