My self-summary
I love novelty and learning. I'm attracted to people who can hold their own in a conversation and are willing to own their own mistakes/misbehavior. I traveled a lot growing up, and while I still love heading out the door for a new adventure, my thirties seem to be all about learning how to be more present in the place I'm at right now.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I divide my time between IT consulting for small to mid-sized businesses and working as a colorist for a local video production house. I am single (never married) and currently live on my own in Milwaukee's best neighborhood (woo Riverwest! Yeah!).
I’m really good at
Active listening
Making bad puns
Giving back rubs (will happily accept as well)
Empathizing with animals (including people)
Building/fixing things
Slogging through unpleasant environments with minimal complaint.
Meticulous planning
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes. They are intensely blue.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I really like a wide range of films, from some really offbeat and critically un-loved (Six String Samurai, Toys, Shoot Em Up, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Secretary) to the seriously powerful (Beauty is Embarrassing, Requiem for a Dream, After The Rain, The Square and Fruitvale Station). I've worked on movies before, but I'm still able to check my tradesman's hat at the door (please let me know if you'd rather I left it on).

The six things I could never do without
Besides the first three layers of Maslow's hierarchy?

I guess I'd go with:
Some form of music.
An organizer of some kind (mostly use my phone at present)
Inspiring friends and colleagues
Access to reference materials (online or offline)
Some basic tools to build and fix things with.
A map of wherever I am.

Oh! And a towel. Everyone should know where their towel is...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to better articulate and share ideas which span diverse topics such as design, project workflows, cameras, net neutrality, Radio Lab stories, British comedy, politics, and sex (only maybe not in this order).
On a typical Friday night I am
Either working on personal projects, going to a show, or catching up with friends/family.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I am cycling, I don't always come to a complete stop at stop signs.
You should message me if
You actively seek out diversity both amongst your friends as well as your choice of work and neighborhood. Or, if you have a good pun you want to share.
