My self-summary
There would be more, but I'm not a great typist/typer or type A. At least I don't think so. Quick I AM statements.

I am artistic and creative.
I am curious.
I am fairly quirky and like quirky people.
I am fascinated by belief, the brain, what people think and why they think it, though i am not a believer in the religious sense. I am a believer is a song by the Monkees, not a description of myself.
I am a beautiful flower walking in the park. Wait, that's not exactly correct.
What I’m doing with my life
Photographer, fake band puppeteer (that's a complicated one - think Flight of the Conchords as an imaginary quintet, but the music is real).
Geek of many degrees, latest geekery - trying to make sense of what people believe and why. Interesting finding from recent research - Smart people are the most likely to believe they are right when they are actually wrong. So it's a good idea to be humble. None of us have it all figured out.
I’m really good at
Writing ludicrous songs about ludicrous things.
Cooking without a recipe, latest pursuit - Indian.
The first things people usually notice about me
I like to talk, too much at times, but I'll take the hint if people start acting bored. Lots of tangents, but that's how my brain works. I am very curious, about all sorts of things.

Six things I could never do without
Music - listening and playing
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Our flawed but amazing minds - why people believe, what they believe, how certain people are about their beliefs, how much we trust our brains as if they are a tape recorder, cling to our beliefs despite the evidence, etc. We should celebrate the imperfection and accept that we can be wrong even when we are sure we are right.
The two of us
