My self-summary
I like going places more than actually getting there. I’m curious and ambitious, and it's done a lot for me. My family moved here when I was four, and my memories of Muskogee are mostly limited to an afternoon spent planting a Coke bottle in our front yard thinking it would grow into a Coke tree. I was a pretty dumb kid, but I've gotten better. I once caught a baby squirrel falling out of a tree.

Skiing and snowboarding don't really work for me. I like to stay up or out late on the weekends, and have fun during the days. That said, the right person with the right plans for the next day can convince me to go to bed early. I like being in the mountains. Camping and weekend drives are things I'm into. I don't get the appeal of climbing 14ers, but you're welcome to try and show me what I'm missing.
What I’m doing with my life
Working for myself, writing software that can be used by actual human beings, and spending time in coffee shops and bars with beer-and-shot specials of varying ingestability. I had a 9-to-5 officedeskjob for a while, but a man can only take so much of that. More money + more freedom = more happy.

I like to wander around the city, look at stuff in the sky, talk to people I'll never see again, get the hell out of the city, drive cars, and spend as much time as I can with the people I'm lucky enough to have for family and friends.
I’m really good at
Hiding my amusement at inappropriate things, road trips, fixing stuff, making camp fires in the rain, getting in over my head, having more fun once I’m in over my head, working with my hands, relating to people, recognizing my limits yet occasionally exceeding them anyway, forgetting to turn the lights off when I leave.
The first things people usually notice about me
I smile a lot. I've been told this lets me get away with a lot more than I could otherwise. When not smiling, I'm apparently sporting the guy equivalent of RBF.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A Short History of Nearly Everything, things by David Sedaris, You Shall Know Our Velocity, Agent ZigZag, The Visual Display of Quantitative Information, Calvin and Hobbes, Achewood.

Off the top of my head: Adaptation, Full Metal Jacket, The Lives of Others, Top Gun (not even joking), Deep Water, Happy People, The Fog of War, Glengarry Glen Ross, Quiz Show, The Right Stuff

Arrested Development, Archer, Top Gear, Always Sunny, Silicon Valley, The Wire, Ray Mears, Better Call Saul, When We Left Earth, F1

Some super-all-time-favorites: Wilco, Pixies, the Wrens, Radiohead, Neko Case, Modest Mouse, the Magnetic Fields, Glenn Gould. Some stuff I'm listening to a lot right now: Slowdive, Jim Messina and the Jesters, the Nebulas, Botanist, Moose. (It has been brought to my attention that there are a couple of Moose bands out there...I'm talking about the one from the 90s that doesn't have a song about a snowcat (?)).

Anything out of a smoker, sashimi, breakfast spaghetti, steaks, drunken noodles, egg beers, the occasional vegetable.
The six things I could never do without
A car. I love going places, and I usually don't even care where. If I'm in motion, I'm happy.

A good pair of boots. I walk a lot.

A dishwasher. I'm really into the idea of machines doing work instead of me.

Uncertainty. If I know where I'll be and what I'll be doing on a daily basis it eats away at me. I've got to make it up as I go.

Whisky, or in a pinch, gin.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How much cheese is too much cheese?

How much I love living in a city surrounded by people, lights, and activity, and how soon I can take off for a couple days and get away from all those things.

Also, how much I want to “have” a lawyer. I want someone whose job it is to keep me out of trouble. Just in case, or something.
On a typical Friday night I am
Developing tinnitus and testing whether whiskey is an effective cure.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was a paid guinea pig for a bunch of studies in college. Some things I learned about myself: my spatial reasoning is incredibly on point, I'm bad at recognizing birds, I don't like MRIs, and I "have an above-average VO2 max" (I don't know what that means but it sounds like a good thing to have).
You should message me if
You can embrace your inner aimless teenager, even if it's just for an afternoon. If you can manage it for a whole weekend, even better.
