My self-summary
I am an open-minded man who leans to the left in my political views, but I find the simple left/right, liberal/conservative characterization of beliefs to be far too simplistic.

I love to spend time outside, especially in the summer.

I lean toward the technical and scientific, but also have an appreciation for art and enjoy going to art fairs.
What I’m doing with my life
I work full time as a software developer. I love my work and I am really good at it. Oh, that's supposed to be the next question. I am a divorced father of three wonderful children who live with me and I do my best to be a good parent to them. One of them is still in high school.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Reading
I read a lot of technical manuals in my work and have an interest in most things scientific and technical. I'm reading "The Universe in a Nutshell" by Stephen Hawking and "The Elegant Universe" by Brian Greene.

I am studying "A Course In Miracles". It has been a profound influence on my thinking.

I'm not a big reader of fiction, but I have read The DaVinci Code and found it very interesting. I'm a fan of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and occasionally quote from it. I quoted from it (perhaps inaccurately - it was from memory) in one of the questions.

Sometimes I like to read erotic short stories. I've written a couple too.

Movies
I like Sci-Fi, superhero and action movies, including the Bourne movies, Taken, Star Wars, Spider-man. Just saw Thor and I enjoyed it. Sometimes like more offbeat things like the Tree of Life. Any movie with Jackie Chan or Clint Eastwood.

Music
I have varied interests in music, but my preference is for rock and roll. I like most kinds of rock, including punk and alternative. Some favorites are Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, Frank Zappa, The Dead Kennedys, Nina Hagen, Lene Lovich, Fun Boy Three, Romeo Void, Kraftwerk, MC-5, Laurie Anderson, The Clash, XTC, Altered Images, Art in America, Was Not Was. There are many more.

Eating
I like to eat healthy.... lots of fruits and vegetables and whole grains. Also like spicy food. Thai, Indian, Mexican, etc. Not a vegetarian by any means though. I eat meat and fish too. I like sushi.
The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
whirled peas.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Update 3/30/2013. I have done some work through the Human Awareness Institute (hai.org). That work has helped me to be much more open and honest with people, and to love myself as I am, so that I can more easily love others.
