My self-summary
I believe in change. It's often a painful thing but I still believe in it. So I don't mind taking a chance or two. I think people shouldn't be scared and unhappy and afraid of making that occasional leap. Try new things. Go on adventures. Let go a bit more. Usually it was worth it.

I also try to focus on the things that I really enjoy doing. I'm honest to a fault (including that statement).

I have a single tattoo. I wouldn't mind more but more important financial matters come up. Have had long hair for perhaps too long now. The mutton chops evolved from a beard and were inspired from a friend and Jet from Cowboy Bebop.
What I’m doing with my life
I love my work in the marine sciences. I love studying my arts. :-)
I’m really good at
I'm not really a fan of this question. I try to be good at the things I do. I'll leave it for others to judge if I'm half way decent. I think most people agree I'm good at certain things.
The first things people usually notice about me
Wow. That's not a bad question. I'm really not sure. I think people tend to like my confidence.

movies: really awesomely bad cult movies, samurai flicks, anime, American animation.

music: I'm all over the place here. punk, ska, rock, calypso, jazz, alternative, metal, lounge, etc.

food: variety. ...and muffins. I enjoy trying new cultural foods. I'm pretty much always up for the adventure.
