My self-summary
Salutations! So, a bit about me... I've got a rather profound interest in studying history, I'm always one who's up for random travelling adventures, outdoor activities, reading an exquisite novel, pacing through a fine museum, trail running out in the wild... I'm an avid would-be writer, and I try to jaut down as much as I can everyday; typically stories of historical fiction, sometimes with a dabble of fantasty thrown in for good measure! I'd like to think that I have a keen appreciation of the ridiculous.
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment, I'm following a career in luthiery and extremely passionate about it. I love crafting things, and have been doing it for years professionally (the making of guitars and other stringed instruments if you didn't know)... and sooner or later I want to tromp about Europe and start visiting my long list of must see historical sites. To further that goal, I'm also running my own business in the Finishing trade (stains, glazes, clearcoats on wood furniture, cabinets, etc). I'm industrious!
I’m really good at
I'd say I'm very well read? I probably know a lot more than I need to about all aspects of history and literature. I'm also fairly decent at distance running. I've been playing guitar and bass for a long time now, and just started learning to play piano... Most of my friends are musicians too, and we collaborate a lot together on different projects.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm sure that the first thing people notice about me is different for each person... but.. I don't know, my smile? I smile a lot... or maybe my distinctively pleasing aroma? Ha. Personality wise, I think people notice that often I'm very upbeat and chivalrous.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Well, as far as books go... Alexandre Dumas, Arthur Conan Doyle, Bernard Cornwell, George MacDonald Frasier are some of my most esteemed authors. And Shakespeare! Lots of Shakespeare!

I'm pretty picky about my music and listen to what most people call "Indie music" (though I would sub-divide that genre up even more) The Shins, Belle and Sebastian, British Sea Power, Rilo Kiley, Feist, Joy Division, The Smiths, The Pixies, Pavement, Elliot Smith, Camera Obscura, Sea Wolf, Badly Drawn Boy, Nick Drake, Franz Ferdinand... and many others. I could talk for hours about the whole development of music genres...

Typically when I compose music, I always seem to fall into playing more archaic classical tunes... Jaunty Baroque songs, and older styles of folk and celtic melodies. Out of date, mayhaps, but great fun!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I like to wonder about obscure historical events, such as the Roman General Crassius's "missing legion" that may have ended up in China, and The Duke of Wellington's midnight hunt for Spring Heel Jack in his old age... I'm sure you get the picture. It also amuses me to think about philisophical topics, such as Plato's discussion on "The Cave" and random, obscure, silly things that no normal person would care to ponder.
On a typical Friday night I am
I usually enjoy heading out and getting dinner with friends, going to a venue for a concert... several things! I hate staying at home on my days off.
