What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm developing cool new tools and products for a financial service provider and would someday like to run a company, but that could change. I've been a Lending VP, a commercial artist, a face painter, and have learned that life is brief but wide... so I hope I never figure out what I want to be when I grow up. You have to be open to what's out there.
I’m really good at
I'm a good leader, love the arts, enjoy all things bohemian, believe trying all kinds of things and stay pretty open-minded, am pretty organized and can really dig in and focus when things need doing - and still chill out and relax.
The first things people usually notice about me
Blue eyes, quirky (and sometimes twisted) sense of humor, and easy-going nature.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A glimpse into my persona via media carpet-bombing, all in no particular order of importance:

A Clockwork Orange - Anthony Burgess
Gödel, Escher, Bach - Douglas R Hofstadter
Dune - Frank Herbert
Story of O - Pauline Réage
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - Lewis Carroll
Yoga Mind, Body, & Spirit - Donna Farhi

eclectic tastes but unabashed sci-fi/horror movie fan

Food - I'll try anything once; favs are...
The six things I could never do without
Basics: Air, Water, Food, Love, Shelter, Money
Being able to do art
Listening to music
Getting outside
The Internet

Is that more than six? Dunno, don't care. Sue me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...what I would like to do next. Which is kind of like thinking about the future...and how can you not, right? So then I think about thinking about the future and maybe I should be focusing more on now and it gets annoying, so I go for a walk or have a beer or do yoga... or start thinking about why my brain works like this answer seems to indicate it does.
On a typical Friday night I am
seeing a movie or going to a show, cooking some good food, or playing a couple of board games with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still have a crush on Morticia. Go figure.
You should message me if
you need to get caffeinated, want to walk for a few miles and talk movies, have rolled a dice with more than six sides at least once in your life, you're wise to how all these questions are not truly insightful and want to get to know me, can mebbe fix my downward-dog pose, or are an Irkan Invader and wish to show me your tattoos. Oh yes, you're out there.
