My self-summary
I left the USA in 2005 in a quest to circumnavigate the world by land. And now, nearly 10 years later, I've still only made it halfway... But, hey, I'm taking my time. This trip is about the journey, not the destination.

Along the way, I've learned a lot about the world and about myself, met a ton of great people and seen a lot of amazing places, and I've built a fantastic career.

I've been in China for a few years now, and I think it's going to take a while to figure this place out (especially this language!), so I've decided to put my backpack down for a while and enjoy some quality time here.
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying it.
I’m really good at
Turning a situation around to my advantage. ;-)
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my hat.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - The Catcher in the Rye, The Wasteland or Prufrock and Other Observations (T.S. Eliot), Catch 22, Cat's Cradle

Movies - Pi, A Clockwork Orange, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Mary and Max, anything Zombie-related

Music - Iron and Wine, The Flaming Lips, They Might Be Giants, Andrew Bird, Tom Waits
The six things I could never do without
shoes, a backpack, some local currency, my Kindle, my passport, someone intelligent to have a conversation with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how easy everything really is, and wondering why people make it all so complicated.
On a typical Friday night I am
sitting outside somewhere, having a drink and a good, earnest chat with friends (or anyone who wanders by - I like strangers, especially strange ones!).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't keep secrets - they're for people who feel guilty.
You should message me if
you've read this far. ;-)
