My self-summary
I'm a computer security geek, piano player, motorcyclist, mountain biker, rock climber. I've found a career that I love. I sometimes play video games, watch a few TV shows, hang out with friends, and do everything that makes this profile look like everyone else's.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working at a job that I really, truly enjoy. Playing more and more board games with friends. Made the move west and barely regret it.
I’m really good at
Dealing with electronics and devices that "think". I'm good at engaging people. I'm good at puzzles and picking up new things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am far from proficient at filling out these profile things. About 10 years ago, I would have put "I look like Opie from the Andy Griffith show." but that is less applicable. Now I don't know what to put down. I suppose I'll seem full of myself, and put "How awesome I am!"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorites are constantly changing.

Books are generally in the mystery or thriller genre or are more likely some kind of technical documentation. (I eat instruction manuals for lunch.)

Movies and music are ones that remind me of memorable times in my life.

My all-time favorite movies are Wargames, Sneakers, and Run Lola Run.

My music collection is expansive. I listen to essentially everything except most country and some rap. (I have some Dahler Mehndi, Spyro Gyra and Daft Punk in the same playlist.)

I prefer foods that are ethnic; foods that are a departure from the norm in the midwest. My favorites are Thai, Persian, and Indian in that order.
The six things I could never do without
Good Friends. Good Food. Good Fun. That covers it all.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What next, and what happened. It sounds like I plan a lot out, but it's more identifying options, causes and effects.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing board games, or reading, or doing absolutely nothing in the disreputable company of my friends, or coding, or cruising on the bike. Sometimes enjoying an ice cold glass of Dr. Pepper. Trying not to act my age.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I find very little reason not to try something a second time, and even less reason not to try it the first time around.
You should message me if
You've got some idea what you want out of life.

You're not opposed to random, potentially life-ending adventures.

You've got a mind for problem solving.

You don't take life too seriously.

You get really excited by ingenious gadgets or, probably more appropriate, you don't mind being around others that do.
