My self-summary
I am nerdy, poly, active, self-aggrandizing and self-deprecating in equal measure; not necessarily in that order.
What I’m doing with my life
Traveling, rock climbing, gaming, cooking, adventures, reading, and stupid projects, with hopefully just the right amount of selling out thrown in for good measure. Again, not necessarily in that order.
I’m really good at
See above, plus both being and not being concise.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, when I am not wearing my glasses. I'm always wearing my glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy books while eating.
I enjoy books about food.
If I have someone who'll sous to my chef, an audience, and a budget, then I enjoy food about books.
That last statement tells you more about who I really am than a laundry list of authors and artists I'm enamored of ever will.

Since it matters... I am, in fact, enamored of a laundry list of authors and artists.
The six things I could never do without
Shaggy dog tales

Introspection

Duck fat

Friends and partners who not only Keep Up, but require Keeping Up With

My bags of tricks

Not sweating the small stuff
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to say more than one thing at once.

"What's next?"

Perspective, and how to change it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working, because Fridays are for amateurs.
On those occasions I'm not, I'll usually be doing my best to replace the word "or" with the word "and."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That just because it's serious, doesn't mean it's not also a joke.

Sometimes you'll hear me bemoan how 10 years in the PNW has made this New Yorker go soft...
That's true, but I've enjoyed every minute of it.

The fastest way for my friends to find an open spot on my calendar is to ask for help feeding everyone they know.
You should message me if
Scheduling with me can be a challenge as I work at least 50 hours/week, and my career plan will make that true for at least a few more years. That said, I make a concerted effort to have time for as many awesome people as I'm able. I also make my pie crust from scratch with a 50/50 mix of butter and lard. If the above facts regarding the flakiness in my life work for you, send me a message and we'll go do a thing.
