My self-summary
אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה, y'know?
I’m really good at
I just finished law school. I've worked with the state prosecutor's office, a human rights clinic, a naval commander, and a bicycle nonprofit. Variety is the spice of life.

I'm a businessman. I've consulted for startups, nonprofits, major corporations, artist co-ops without a buck to their name. My clients provide me endless entertainment.

I'm a writer. I write about a novel a year. And a short story here, a play or two there. I just can't help it: words get me high.

I'm a maker. I blacksmith, turn wood. I like to cook with a cocktail at my elbow. A few more decades and I'll finally get good at photography.

I'm a cyclist. I love to put two tires underneath me and ride. I just stripped my bike down to frame and rebuilt it by hand. I've been on two tours and I'm dreaming of a third.

I'm a traveler. I like wandering strange cities and hiking mountains on the other side of the world. I like art museums the way some people like respiration.

Life is short... but I'm still going for 100% completion.
The first things people usually notice about me
I asked some friends. For better or for worse… here are their answers:

”You have really pretty eyes.”
“You need a shave.”
“Your necktie. Which is tied in a knot that hasn’t been used in, like, a hundred years.”
“Shut up.”
“You’re ugly and nobody will ever love you.”
“You smell like orchids have been fucking.”
“You’re wearing a suit, WHY ARE YOU WEARING A SUIT???”
“You’re being attacked by ice bears.”
“You’ve got very pretty eyes.”
“This is for OKCupid isn’t it?”
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I know some brilliant people with completely different tastes than me. It's not so much what a person likes; it's why they like it that counts.
The six things I could never do without
In case of fire:
1) grab pourover cone
2) make coffee over flames!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The characters in my next novel. The startup I dream of upstarting. Where I can go to meet people who like to talk the way I like to talk. What wine pairs with Portland.
On a typical Friday night I am
making sure my night isn't typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have miles to go before I sleep.
