My self-summary
I'm talented, funny, smart, and confident, with the smile of a trickster god. I listen more than I talk.

I'm gentle without being a pushover. I like to try things that are out of my comfort zone and laugh at how ridiculous I look.
What I’m doing with my life
I am coding on some side projects (one in karaoke and one in voting), looking for a tech leadership job, and going to lots of circus classes, so I can be an amateur acrobat :)
I’m really good at
Being nice to people, signing, snuggling, dancing, debugging, solving problems.

I have held jobs, left jobs, created jobs, been fired from jobs, started companies, and seen companies die. I have started open source projects. I have written entire applications in plpgsql, and liked it. I have sailed a Catalina with a half-rigged mainsail and an engine throwing sparks through a maze of windsurfers, and brought her home safe.

I might take you out to dinner.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm pretty short; it's for fuel efficiency.

That I am leaving it all on the stage at the dive bar karaoke night.

That I talk like I'm certain. "I'm just making this up!" I sometimes say, but people don't seem to care. It's a thrilling and dangerous sense of power.

That I'm upside down.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TOOL, RATM, Tom Waits, Beethoven, Josquin, Pink Floyd, Miles Davis.

I like sushi, Indian food, burgers, and pizza. I don't eat pork, it's a tribal thing.

Odd music/video tastes include The Billy Nayer Show and Brad Neely's Babycakes (and maybe now Queeblo!) I like absurd art! Also, did you see the cathedral made of old guns/bullets? I think it was at the DeYoung? Amazing.
The six things I could never do without
Unexpectedness.
Love.
Lists.
Counting.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Is it possible for a financial services company to not be deeply awful?
On a typical Friday night I am
At a dance class, or dinner with my parents and brother.
