My self-summary
I'm originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I lived in Portland, Oregon for 9 years. And about 5 years ago found myself moving to Oakland through a somewhat bizarre set of circumstance.

I love living in Oakland. I love to take advantage of everything the bay area has to offer. I love going to all the farmers markets, walking around Lake Merritt, and eating at Vietnamese restaurants in really bad parts of town.

I work in the chemical manufacturing industry. I recently started working at an awesome start-up in Richmond. I finally feel like I'm in a place that's the perfect fit for me.

I play bass in a band that you never heard of. It's not anything super serious but it's a lot of fun.
What I’m doing with my life
Staying busy. My work is a little crazy right now so I don't usually have a ton of spare time during the week. When I do get out at a decent time I'm usually going to the gym.

On the weekend I frequently take my bike into SF and try climbing the steepest hills I can find.

I have a small but reasonably profitable eBay business that I work on from time to time.
I’m really good at
Building stuff
Breaking stuff
Being sweet
Being a prick
Not watching sports
Lifting heavy things

Oh and my forklift skills are the bomb.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a big white dude.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot of news articles, magazines, weekly papers. Honestly I don't read a lot of books. Two that I read recently are Art of War and Endurance.

Favorite movies would be Pulp Fiction, Snatch, Lock Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels, Trainspotting, Religulous

Favorite shows are Deadwood, Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Bill Maher.

Musically my main passion is Jazz. I'm mostly into 'Hard Bop' artists like Coltrane, Mingus, Oscar Peterson, Art Pepper, Milt Jackson, etc.. Otherwise I'm into Frank Zappa, Dave Matthews Band, Soul Coughing, Rage Against the Machine, White Zombie, Maceo Parker, Reverend Horton Heat, Beck, so on and so on.

I like a lot of different foods. My favorites are Vietnamese, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Salvadorean, Mexican, Japanese, Thai, etc...
The six things I could never do without
Exercising my right to not fill in boxes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why does the OKC robot think I'm arrogant? Is it that part where I said stupid people shouldn't breed? Maybe it's that. It's probably that. But come on man... lighten up. It was just a joke.

Sort of.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes out with friends. Sometimes not. It just depends. I get up at 5am for work so I'm not a late night partier.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Deep down I'm really very shallow.
