My self-summary
Grew up in the Boston area, but lived in Los Angeles for about 5 years before moving back a little over a year ago. I loved LA, but it felt like the right time to move back.

I'm living in JP and working as a computer programmer for a healthcare non-profit. While I was in LA I was taking some time off from the real world and pursuing a dream of becoming a writer--I wrote a novel while I was out there.

For fun, I like to hang at coffee shops and read and write, cook, eat out, go to concerts, hike, watch sports, travel, play trivia, go to game nights, grab a drink at a bar...
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying my day job and the opportunity to travel to Africa and elsewhere for work. Looking forward to spending more time with my 10 month old nephew. Thinking about where I might be heading next.
I’m really good at
Hmm... one thing I'm NOT good at is self-promotion... let me see... problem solving, cooking, and listening. Committing to something and following through.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some random samples: The Wire, The Tudors, Seinfeld, Middlesex, House of Sand and Fog, The Poisonwood Bible, Bob Dylan, Game of Thrones, The Office (esp the British one), The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, Crossing to Safety, Consciousness Explained, Monty Python
The six things I could never do without
My health
Chocolate chip cookies
Cheddar cheese
Books (well, I guess it's my Kindle now)
Music
A day job that brings me satisfaction
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make the most of my life.

Perhaps drinks after work with co-workers... maybe dinner out... and sometimes just relaxing at home after a long week...
