My self-summary
Ambitious musician/engineer prone to fits of excitement. Love playing with my friends' kids (I was "Uncle Josh" long before I had any actual nieces/nephews) but not sure I ever want any kids of my own.

I've lived in Seattle for so long that it feels like home, but some things still betray my midwest background. I still half-hope that people I walk by on the street will be friendly and say "hello" instead of the icy Seattle stare straight forward/down.
What I’m doing with my life
Living the bachelor lifestyle: work, friends, travel, going to a million weddings. I'm a semi-serious musician and do a lot of gigs in the Seattle/Portland/Vancouver area. It's fun because the gigs are with lots of different groups so I get to interact with all sorts of different people.
I’m really good at
I've known since I was about 5 years old that I wanted to do both music and software, and I've studied both all my life. So I've gotten pretty good at them.

Staying positive even if I haven't eaten in a while. I don't get hangry!

Hiking in rocky areas. My body is perfectly built to jump from rock to rock -- it almost feels like dancing, and it feels great.

Lately I've been brainstorming about how I could make teaching a part of my life.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a cancer survivor. Lance Armstrong was my hero until it turned out he was a big douchebag.
