My self-summary
I've got a twisted (and pervy) sense of humor, generally quick with a joke, pun, or wordplay that makes people groan. I consume these tears and groans and use them as fuel. I believe in the scientific method, evidence and backing up your claims with a well thought out argument. Having said that, I'm a big fantasy and mythology geek and I like to use my imagination in roleplaying.

Feminist.

I favor empowering over enabling.
What I’m doing with my life
I've stumbled into the best career opportunity [software development] that I've ever had. I've grown more professionally in the past two years than most of my previous careers combined. A culture of mentorship, transparency, and feedback have made that possible. I'm pouring as much as I can into my work at the moment, as I know it's paying dividends.

Meeting folks who are also working toward making themselves better. What's working, what's not?

Coding Skynet.

Listening.
Saying what's on my mind.

Music:

I'm a fiend for almost all kinds of music, but mostly listen to alternative and classic rock, with a little hip hop thrown in. Most recently I'm in to dubstep stuff. I used to DJ online a bit, it's a helluva lot of fun.

Six things I could never do without
Books, music, coffee, my hands, oxygen, regular showers

What's this life all about?
Science, technology, what we've done in the past 200 years and what we might do in another 200.

Thankful I made it!
Open to suggestions. Karaoke?

I think of kissing as a long lost art form. Also, instant chemistry test for potential partners.
