My self-summary
I am originally from Michigan, I moved to the Bay area years ago for work. I enjoy humor. I love puns, comedies, comedy shows and so forth. Even terribly stupid comedy movies. I am fairly liberal, but not overly political. I am sarcastic. I am a loving friend. I prefer thinking things through; big decisions are best left to stew overnight. I like talking and listening. I like to cook and eat. Going out is nice, but so is staying in and making a homemade meal. I love watching Good Eats and making food that I see on the show.

I rock climb at least once a week. The bay area is great for hiking so I try to hike when I can find the time.
What I’m doing with my life
I write computer software for a tech company (shocking I am sure.) In my spare time I am trying to put together some travel plans for a world tour of waterfalls. I volunteer at Second Harvest food bank. I am currently attempting to learn photography, so I can photograph some waterfalls and have pictures that are not horrible.

This year (2015) I plan to go to Hawaii, Australia, Oregon, Washington, Fiji, and Ireland.

I just moved to Menlo Park with some friends.
I’m really good at
Doing stupid things on a dare
Listening to people
singing to the radio while driving / in the shower (not at the same time.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I have glasses. Also I tend to be shy and quiet at first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I try to read one or two books a month. I really enjoyed the Silo series by Hugh Howie. Harry Potter was good. The Martian by Andy Weir. The Art of Racing in the Rain. The book Thief. I also read some 'non-fiction' books like The Disappearing Spoon, Freakonomics, and Outliers: The story of Success.

TV: Netflix and Hulu. I manage to keep tabs on Castle, Bones, Doctor Who, Top Gear, Hells Kitchen, Archer and Suits.

Music: Varies with my mood. Vienna Teng, generic pop stuff, at work. Lindsey Stirling. I tend to like songs more than bands, particularly when songs invoke good memories. For instance, I'm not normally a Dixie Chicks fan, but Sin Wagon is a great song because it reminds me Rock Band.

Food: Willing to try anything. Pad Thai is delicious. So are cookies..and bacon. Natto is disgusting. I will try anything.
The six things I could never do without
Music for my sanity
internet for looking up where to go and how to get there.
Sun (I lived in the Midwest for years, snow sucks.)
glasses / contacts cause' I like be able to see things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
New hobbies to take up.
Where to travel to next. I have a list of waterfalls to visit.
Should I buy a house? Ugh Bay Area real estate sucks.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing board games with friends
Going out to dinner.
Sometimes, I even combine the two. Exciting I know!
Rock climbing at the gym.

This past year I've been travelling a lot of weekends, so my Friday is either spent in the car (ugh) or out and about wherever I happen to be ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once traveled from Michigan to California on spring break to meet random internet friends. Fun was had by all and we are still friends today.
