My self-summary
I grew up on a farm in the Midwest and made my way out to the east coast to continue my education at MIT. While I enjoy all Boston has to offer, I will always appreciate the open skies and friendly people of my home. People out here are nice, but still look at me funny when I say 'hi' when passing on the sidewalk.

I was fortunate that my farm was high tech with gps guided tractors, and iPhone controlled irrigation systems, (although they just had indoor plumbing installed) so I naturally found my way into engineering and technology. I also spent a great deal of my time as a kid knee deep in politics; needless to say I'm pretty well rounded. Within minutes, I can transition from "aww hell, you shoulda seen billy get his truck stuck last weekend" to "I believe we are living in one of the most interesting times in history with regard to social and technological progress". That example may be a bit extreme, but you get the point.

My childhood was spent outdoors playing with cars/trucks/tractors, and building/fixing things and I never really grew up. Pushing things to the limit has always been a passion of mine, so I work on a professional Porsche racing team for fun. Aside from that, I own an engineering/prototyping consulting company. Ive been fortunate enough to work on a wide variety of very interesting projects; seldom has there been a dull moment.

The devil's advocate? Yes. I have taken the other side of view since I was six, just for the sake of debate. There are always validities to the other party's argument (exception: some of todays presidential candidates). Sometimes this leads to indecision, but usually generates good ideas.

My favorite sentence is 'why?'. I like to question every answer, and answer every question. Most times I succeed, except for those seemingly large existential questions like what is my place in the universe...the gears are still whirring on that one...and probably will be for awhile!
What I’m doing with my life
Living it for all it's worth. Not wasting one second.
I’m really good at
Making things. Fixing things. Tangible tasks, figuring things out. Getting into/out of sticky situations.
The first things people usually notice about me
is that I am super tall. The air is 40% thinner up here.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like to listen to books while out running or doing other activities. This also hones my senses, as I tend to cross streets in front of cars far too often.

My musical palette is broad-spectrum; samples from desirable genres include: lady gaga, alice in chains, massive attack, cherry poppin' daddies, benny banassi, and clint black.

I like all types of food, which makes me quite indecisive when posed with the question of where/what to eat.
Six things I could never do without
The essentials.
Companion lifeforms to interact with or to eat.
A tool.
Political satire
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life. More specifically, the ubiquitous and symbiotic relationship that we share with the universe. That may not make any sense, but it sounded deep!

Besides that: politics, microfluidics, economics, thermodynamics, all of the other -ics, the global food system, energy sustainability, and how to make the world support 10 billion people in the next 100 years with a fixed amount of resources.
And racecars.
And pretty girls.
And kittens.
And popsicles.
And lately, whether or not the 'scientific 7 minute workout' will actually work out.
On a typical Friday night I am
Rounding up some friends to play foosball at a bar.
Thinking about how much more mischief I could be up to if I weren't in the city.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a structured procrastinator in training.
