*UPDATE* The person mentioned above is now my wife. If you would like to see her profile on here, I am happy to steer you that way. We share a life together, and each have our own dynamics.
I am conversation driven, admittedly fickle, and known to wander.
At night I can be found roaming around Little Five Points where I live. I try to squeeze in time to travel to places not yet visited...and a few favorite haunts every so often.
I go to sci-fi fantasy cons and the Starlight Drive In on nice evenings.Also,like everyone else,I have a novel that I never seem to get time to finish.
It is funny how much life changes. Like so many other people, I was the victim of the merger/acquisition tides of the current economy. I now work for myself after being give my walking papers by the large evil non-profit that gobbled up the one I worked at. I took some of the money and backpacked across Europe for a few months. I also skipped Dragon Con this year to go out to Burning Man. Through all of this, I have found a girl who seems to get me. So, I guess you could say I am in a non traditional relationship now. Relationship... what a weird word to self apply in my case.
*Pre Mayan Calendar Rollover Update*
It is funny how much life has changed since I have updated this section last...
I have in the past year accepted a position as a project manager for a small start-up in Buckhead. It is definitely a paradigm shift for me from my previous "hand's on" work. To alleviate my need to keep in the middle of technology, I maintain a small consulting business. Things will the girl as still going well. She has a profile on here now. If you ask nicely, I will point you to it.
*UPDATE 8/21/13* I married the girl and am still working as a project manager. My ongoing goal of improving myself as a partner and person is ongoing!
I think H.P. Lovecraft does not get the respect he earned for his writing.
Movies: I love the Coen Brothers...Big Lebowski, Miller's Crossing, O Brother Where Art Thou?, The Hudsucker Proxy. I also love schlocky horror films like Reanimator and The Dunwich Horror.
I also love crime films like The Usual Suspects to the classics like The Godfather.
Music: The Cure, Depeche Mode, Placebo, Josh Jolpin Group, The Decemberists, The Dimes, They Might Be Giants, Interpol, Tom Waits, Concrete Blonde are a few more modern selections...
I also love old blues like John Lee Hooker and Etta James...
Food: Tasty Chinese take out, Lowcountry Cajun, and Italian are my favorites...
2. My laptop
3. Emotions that pick you up and carry you with them
5. The open road
6. Conversations in bed at 3AM
and because I will put whatever I want here
7. The belief that tomorrow could be better than today if you are willing to make it that way.
I think I finally figured this out! I definitely put experiences over material possessions nowadays.
