My self-summary
I am a self employed math nerd who spends a lot of time helping young people realize they can do anything they want but at the same time explaining why it really does not matter if they know how transform a trig function or not.
What I’m doing with my life
I work, perhaps too much some days, but I have a job I love, that doesn’t feel like work, and allows me to follow my passions.

I start every day with a long hike in the ravine with my dogs. I can no longer imagine starting my day any other way. I still get amazed at the wildlife I see: a blue heron, spawning salmon, the odd deer and most recently a huge owl.

I decided recently that I really wanted to do at least one really good pull up before I died, it took a few months, but I finally managed one very inelegant chin up, and then eventually ten over three sets. The new goal is to be able to do ten chin ups in a single set, and one day ten pull ups. Someone told me recently that women can’t do 100 push-ups (in one set), so that is goal number two. It might take awhile, but I don’t like it when people say I can’t do something. So I am doing a lot of upper body work these days.

I am also finally learning to code – thank god for Khan Academy.
I’m really good at
Making people believe in themselves - that's the teacher in me. Screwing things up the first thousand times I try something - that's the student in me. And math, I am really good at math.
The first things people usually notice about me
My lack of height, and once I open my mouth, the salty language I use.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books: too many to pick just one. Right now I'm pretty enamoured with Brandon Sanderson and his Stormlight Archive. Epic Fantasy is usually the way I go, but will read just about anything if it is good, and the dog doesn’t die. I also enjoy good graphic novels -- I'm reading Captain America from the very beginning these days, and The Walking Dead faithfully.

Music: yes and lots of it, anything that makes me feel like moving I like, my IPod has something from every genre of music. If I could only listen to one band for the rest of my life I would have to go with Pink Floyd. Right now I am back and forth between Emimen and Kesha, depending on my mood.

Movies: Anything with good gunfights and things blowing up. I love me some Michael Bay. I don’t see much in the theatre, but Star Trek, Star Wars, anything Marvel, will usually get me out to one, and if Joss Whedon is in anyway involved I will be going to see it, at least once.

TV: I don’t watch much of anything current, but do enjoying binging on a good show. These days I'm going back and forth between It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and a Battlestar Galactica rewatch depending on my mood.

Food: Nachos -- I could eat them three times a day. Breakfast is always awesome, especially for lunch or supper.
The six things I could never do without
-my dogs
-a problem to solve
-walks outdoor
-a pull up bar
I spend a lot of time thinking about
These days it's trying to figure out why my code is not working.
On a typical Friday night I am
Taking a break from cooking and eating out somewhere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have Snow Patrol on my IPod, but don’t worry; I won’t make you listen to it.
You should message me if
You want to grab drinks somewhere and argue the meaning of life; or maybe just a coffee and see what happens.
