My self-summary
Creating my self-summary somehow seems impossible without some sort of diorama or five page essay on college rule paper. Still, you guys need something here, some way to index. The truth is, if I could summarize myself so succinctly, I would probably not be here. I tend to prefer to be in the company of people who still have more questions than answers; People who would rather debate than argue, who aren't yet so bitter with the world as to give up on it.
In truth, I need to be a person in a world of people with artifice dropped and humility evident. I have learned that we become ourselves in the presence of other people. So what does this all mean in the context of this site? I want to meet a guy who doesn't mind feeling simultaneously smart and stupid with another person. :)
What I’m doing with my life
I do corporate training and development. I have the luxury of working from home most of the time and I travel to customer sites a few times a year.
I’m really good at
Solving problems. I guess it also relates to my lifelong interest in narratives and puzzles. Cause and effect. How does one thing get you to another? Everything is a story. I just like unwrapping it and providing a possible (if often temporary) ending. I guess I ultimately just like things to find a state of equilibrium.
The first things people usually notice about me
They probably notice that I am actually listening to everything they are saying.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Did the Dune Series, Dark Tower series. Just picked up the Game of Thrones series. In school, I loved Faulkner, Welty, O'Conner and other Southern writers. However, the book that made me think the most about the world is "The World is Flat" by Thomas Friedman.

As for Movies, I like good horror (suspense rather than gore). I like sci-fi and action mostly, but still laugh at the Hangover and most films with Paul Rudd (except romantic comedies. Now that's horror!)

I usually have some series I am drawn to on TV. Right now, it's the walking dead. I am a bit of an MSNBC/CNN news junkie as well. Other series I have liked Battlestar Galactica and Buffy the Vampire Slayer (I'm a closet geek who can still move in proper society :))

As for Music. I like top 40, but I also like 80's rock and club music.
The six things I could never do without
Family and Friends
My eyes. Blindness would not be good for me. I draw, write, and read.
My computer. Not because I love it so much, but it is the crux of my employability.
My imagination and time to think.
Peanut M&Ms
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The next chapter of my life
On a typical Friday night I am
One of two places: Having drinks or dinner with coworkers or friends or on my couch watching a movie. Pretty mundane, but I'm working on filling a open position on that couch.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I live by one rule: I will never lie to a direct question.
You should message me if
you really like real conversation (and if you have brown eyes and a hairy chest also helps) :)
