My self-summary
I have a fiercely independent streak and am an introvert but enjoy getting to know people too.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a technical writer that's somewhat semi-retired. But there's always something within me that wants something more. I spend a lot of time on the computer, researching reading and writing. I'm looking to find a job (paid or volunteer) that suits me. That being said, I've worked hard throughout my life and feel this time off has been good for me.
I’m really good at
Writing, reading cookbooks and cooking from them, being adventurous, road trips. Thinking of and buying gifts for people. Walking. I walk 30 minutes a day every day. Also, just being still and in the moment.
The first things people usually notice about me
Depends upon who you ask...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything by Bill Bryson, Erik Larson books, Jon Kabat-Zinn's Wherever You Go, There You Are, The Geography of Bliss, The Joy of Cooking (cookbook).

Movies/Shows: I don't watch many shows, for some reason. I guess I prefer the drama of sports. I also enjoy movies including favorites: Argo, The Insider, The Pelican Brief, Before Sunrise, Garden State, The Bourne Series.

Music: I feel like I'm discovering music all the time. Recently it's been Steve Gunn, Stanton Moore and Wolf Parade. Van Morrison and Dave Brubeck are classic favorites.

Food: I love all kinds of food for all different occasions. Thai, Indian, Mexican, breakfast scrambles, a really good burger paired with an IPA.
Six things I could never do without
My family, exercise, laptop, interesting conversations, books, music.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Owning an organic teriyaki restaurant, how's that for a business idea?!
You should message me if
You are cynical but optimistic. You're easy going, open minded and adventurous (more in the "trying new restaurants and traveling" sense then the rock climbing sense).You appreciate sports, visual arts and gentle sarcasm. Bonus if you love to cook!
