My self-summary
according to the meyers-briggs thing, i'm an ISFP. i don't remember what that means, but if you were at a party, you'd probably find me near the food with a few friends being totally ridiculous. i'm a social introvert, if that makes any sense.

kids and pets like me. i think they are pretty good judges of character - they get that i'm a playful/gentle person beneath a heavy layer of sarcasm.

i think you'd just have to meet me to find out the rest. i know that sounds coy, but reading this profile only goes so far, you know? let's just have a real conversation over a beer.
What I’m doing with my life
mostly just trying to do things that i find interesting/meaningful. figuring out how to live generously. making my coworkers laugh - i feel that this is one of my job responsibilities.

sometimes i run. i've tried to do at least one half marathon a year in the last few years.

i volunteer at the SFSPCA on the weekends, walking dogs and holding puppies. i got my cat there a while back, and was impressed with the organization. decided to volunteer with the dogs so i wouldn't feel like i was cheating on my cat. i'd love to get a dog someday!
I’m really good at
Forgetting that I've looked at your profile before.

Six things I could never do without
short answer: (pizza +beer) x 3 = 6 things i can't do without.

longer answer:
friends. laughter. cheese. naps. used bookstores. bacon.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what kind of pranks to pull on my coworkers and friends.
the theology books that i read and try to figure out how they fit into everyday life.
what i'm going to have for lunch.
the next time i'll get to go to a baseball game, sit in the sun, and yell ridiculous things. with a side of nachos.
if i should take a photography class. i'd like to know more about what makes a good photo, besides, you know, what instagram filter to use.
On a typical Friday night I am
doing whatever comes up. usually happy hour because i feel i've earned it after the work week. sometimes low-key with the netflix queue, sometimes karaoke, sometimes good food and drink with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have been in a fantasy baseball league with my younger brother and his friends for several years. They are way more hardcore than me & got really angry when I accidentally won a few years ago.
You should message me if
you know when to use "your" versus "you're" and the like.
you want to nerd out over good coffee or beer.
The two of us
