My self-summary
So far I've been a corporate tax accountant, americorps firefighter, teacher in South America, and now web developer. I still haven't found what I'm looking for but am not convinced I'd be happier if I did.
What I’m doing with my life
Since I gaze into the loving embrace of a computer screen for 40 hours a week now, I'm trying my best to get out and about with friends doing all the normal stuff like hiking, river floating, tennis, soccer, blowing bubbles etc.
I’m really good at
Things that don't matter like ping pong and some things that matter like being able to see the good in everyone.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like books that have a spiritual journey kind of an undertone to them like Life of Pi and The Alchemist. Bill Bryson is pretty great. After reading Andre Agassi's biography Open, I think I'd like to read more biographies.

Movies shows and music tastes are pretty all over the place. I don't have a TV (but who needs those anymore). Recently I've been watching a bit of Bojack Horseman, Louie, Master of None, and of course Game of Thrones. Live music feeds my soul, I haven't been super into the music festival scene but plan to be in the coming summers.
The six things I could never do without
Frozen yogurt, definitely couldn't do without that.
Exercise highs and then eating frozen yogurt
Those people you could not see for 5 years and pick up right where you left off over a nice helping of frozen yogurt.
Freedom to eat frozen yogurt at a leisurely pace.
People with passion that consumes them as they consume frozen yogurt with me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Rabbit holes. How deep should we go? Does exploring one make us miss out on all the other ones? Or do they all connect down there somewhere?

My main rabbit hole recently has been exploring the Meyers Briggs personality topology and wondering how good of a model it is considering it doesn't have a strong basis in brain structure and neuroscience.
On a typical Friday night I am
This is a recent embarrassment that I can't tell you the answer to unless you also play magic the gathering on Friday nights.
You should message me if
You want to skip the painful internet talking and grab some frozen yogurt (or a drink).

Your inner child hasn't died yet.

You like to stay active and shake up routines... routinely.
