My self-summary
I was a tech reporter, then I wrote a book and became a hippie. With regular bathing habits.
What I’m doing with my life
Figuring out how to get people to care about important issues in science and tech... via music and comedy and maybe musical comedy.

I occasionally host tech conferences, mostly because I get to dress up nice. I've also done a little acting.
I’m really good at
Explaining that the phrase is actually "champing at the bit", not "chomping". This is a power move that proves handy in all circles of society; my eternal thanks to the internet commenter who cured me of my ignorance many moons ago.

Also: guitar/singing/writing/public transit
The first things people usually notice about me
Maybe my voice. I have a habit of singing in the street when I've been drinking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Kurt Vonnegut (Mother Night is my favorite), William Goldman, John Barleycorn, Sherlock Holmes, Neil Postman, Ishmael, Harry Potter, Carl Sagan, Oliver Sacks. Currently reading 'At the Existentialist Café' by Sarah Bakewell, because I am mysterious and interesting.

Music: Tycho, Beach House, Explosions in the Sky, Louie Armstrong, Led Zeppelin, Haim, Dispatch, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Darkness, CCR, Jazz, Lou Reed, and a bunch of stuff I would've never heard of were it not for Spotify etc. I like weed that pairs well with music and vice versa.

Also John Mayer, who makes my guitar weep with envy.

TV: So behind. Bojack Horseman.

YouTube: The School of Life (so good), Intelligence Squared debates, old Charlie Rose, old standup, live concerts, softcore porn.

Podcasts: too many but look at me, dragging OKC to 2016. Kinda rhymes.
The six things I could never do without
Reading material, a guitar, light source of some kind. A computer I guess but I want to live on a hippie commune where you need to walk half a mile to use the internet, just to make sure you really want it. But maybe that would suck.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I studied biology, so lots of thoughts about evolution and how it has shaped who we are today (seriously, 3.5+ billion years of life is like, so big bro). Is genetic testing going to make society all GATTACA up in here?

Also much pondering on the ways we use technology, and how we let it use us.

Mostly, though, I'm trying to figure out how to fit my groceries into the basket on my bike.
On a typical Friday night I am
Open mic then cathartic fajita & cerveza.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My dentist says I have unusually sharp teeth. I can't tell if she's making a joke about the fact that I look like a vampire or if I have legitimate fangs.
You should message me if
You're smart, kind, like sunsets, and you appeal to the characteristics of attractiveness that were imprinted on me in my youth.
