My self-summary
I think one of the best-kept secrets in Washington are the old mountaintop fire lookouts that you can stay in. Abandoned 40 years ago after the job of fire-monitoring got taken over by satellites, they're now wilderness first-come-first-served cabins, usually with a bed, a stove, and a few well-worn paperbacks--not to mention the killer views of the mountains out the panoramic windows.

My soul is refreshed each time I stay in a lookout. Not only is being outdoors a refreshing break from work and from city life for me, but the simplicity and clarity of the space--just 12x12 feet--reminds me how one can live basically and still be fulfilled. Far from being feeling claustrophic, the low ceilings encourage me not to look up and be in awe of the structure itself, but instead to look out at the lands surrounding.
What I’m doing with my life
Believe it or not, I have a life outside of fire lookouts!

I work in user experience. I climb and run a couple times a week. I'm training for the Beat the Blerch marathon.

I've lived in six countries, and I'm learning harmonica.

For five years, I used to rent a room on an urban farm where I raised chickens and vegetables.

I'm an Airbnb host.
I’m really good at
My friends know me for the new ice cream flavors I create.

I'm a backcountry skier. I took a heli trip last season to a cabin in BC, where I made ice cream out of snow!
The first things people usually notice about me
That I spend almost all my time doing things that make me happy, and I spend very little time doing or thinking of things that don't.
The six things I could never do without
I feel like I live pretty simply. I try to limit my material possessions to things that have an ongoing creative or recreational purpose. I'd like to believe that even if everything was taken away from me, that I'd still be able to live, persevere, and be happy.

Except my iPhone. You can pry it from my cold, dead hands.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
1. Politics and foreign policy...fun stuff, I know.
2. How to get millions of people to click on things.
3. How delicious fish is.
