My self-summary
Love anything outdoors, especially skiing, mtn biking, and wakeboarding. Have a 2 yr old Collie named Sierra. Work at GE. 5'10"
What I’m doing with my life
I work at GE. I'm the Business Intelligence Leader for one of our business (fancy words for using data to make better decisions). It's still corporate America & not my dream job, but I like it a lot. On my own time, I'm teaching myself to do iOS development for the iPhone & iPad & I'm also taking online classes at Stanford. I also have a condo in Lake Tahoe, that I'm at pretty much every weekend. I love to hike, bike, ski, wakeboard, rockclimb and camp.
I’m really good at
I'm good at lots of stuff. I have a pilots license and everybody always thinks that's cool, so I'll go with that. I'm also good at fixing mechanical stuff like cars, boats, and household things. I'm pretty good at skiing too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty reserved and I tend to be the voice of reason, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't wish that I could just be carefree and cut completely loose without consequences every now and then.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite Book (Non-Fiction): Rework by the 37 Signals guys.
Favorite Book (Fiction): The Bastard by John Jakes.
Favorite Show: its a toss up between TED Talks & ...awesome wine show, learned so much from it. And Gary V is the man.
Favorite Music: 60's-70's Classic Rock... Clapton, Allman Brothers, Van Morrison, The Band, 10CC, REO Speedwagon... I love them all. I like most any thing though, except Rap.
Six things I could never do without
Family for love. Friends for fun. Projects to keep busy. Books to learn from. Music to enjoy. And Wine to cut loose.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I'm going to get the skills & experience I need to do my dream job. Before I started at GE, I started a business. It was a Marine Service Company in Savannah, GA. (It's a long, but good story, ask if you want to know more). I learned so much in such a short period of time and I loved that atmosphere compared to corporate America. Anyway, my dream gig would be to run a small manufacturing shop that makes something cool, simple, and that everybody needs but doesn't really ever think about.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either having people over to my place for dinner, or just keeping it low key with the pup
