My self-summary
I never feel quite right droning on about myself, but I'll try to make it short:
Born in Kansas but moved to Seattle when I was four or five. I was raised strictly and evangelically protestant, which is probably why I'm not religious at all any more. I sometimes call myself a Latter Day Hippie because I'm vegetarian, into meditation, yoga, and various other hippie-esque activities. Thankfully, I shower and shave far too often to be called a true hippie.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an engineer and, while I love the hell out of my job, I find it difficult to be really passionate about something I'm relying on to feed, house, and clothe me.
I'm more enthusiastic about my personal projects. Writing short stories is a big one. Arthur C. Clarke, Ray Bradbury, and Joseph Heller are big influences if that gives you an idea.
I also spend a lot of time studying Japanese, running, rock-climbing, reading, practising yoga, reading, meditating, and hiking. Yes, I'm aware I said reading twice.
I’m really good at
As a rule I don't claim to be good at very much, but there can be little doubt that I'm awesome at:
- Engineering
- Running
- Wakeboarding / Snowboarding
- Cooking

Six things I could never do without
My eyes
My hands
My feet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If there's a way I can claim to have had a positive impact on the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out and bullshitting with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I find ambition super sexy. Not the murderous, Lady Macbeth kind, however.
You should message me if
- You never listen to music when you run.
- You have a sweet idea for a robotics project.
The two of us
