My self-summary
A modern caveman in many ways. I have uncommonly exceptional common sense. Confident in where I am in life, no regrets in any way with where I am going.
What I’m doing with my life
For the past five years I've been working virtually for a HR company based in Chicago as a Systems Analyst. This allows me to work from any location as long as I have access to an internet connection. As a result I've been globe hopping for the past two years at different locations. Sweden, Iceland, Denmark, Japan, Vietnam, Most of the East Coast of the US, spent a year in Korea and now I'm back in the East coast for a bit.
I’m really good at
Fixing things, cooking, photography, subliminal humor, playing Monopoly, skiing, Grok-ing about, Ultimate Frisbee and assorted sports, Karakoe (actually just a select few songs) and practical jokes.
The first things people usually notice about me
First impressions can be misleading but people generally notice that I am candid, open to ideas and conversation, and have a easygoing attitude.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read voraciously, though I'm strictly a nonfiction reader these days. Aside from a few key exceptions, Fiction is not terribly appealing. Some books:
- Guns, Germs, and Steel
- 101 Things to do til the Revolution
- Freakonomics
- Libertarianism: Primer
- Letters to a Young Contrarian

Movies: Too many to list here, but let's just say I never get less than 8 questions right on the weekly filmwise invisibles quiz. See how well you do.

Music: So I'm supposed to say I like a diverse array of musical genres and I constantly seek new under appreciated artists. All true, but that doesn't mean I wont queue up my power ballad or blues mix every now and then. Anyways this is the current mix I am listening to:

Food: One of my other pastimes, I love to cook and will eat most about anything. My feeling is that humans are fortunate to have been blessed with such a potent gastronomic capability that we can chow down on such a diverse array of foods. Every time I discover a new dish or flavor, it's like seeing a new color or hue or the first time. Fermented shark meat, biltong, natto they're all good. That's not to say I don't appreciate the beauty of a well prepared steak, but there are certainly times when my unabashed eating habits have sometimes drawn the odd look of disapproval ಠ_ಠ
Six things I could never do without
Having traveled a bit now, I've come to realize just how little stuff you actually need. For me its just the basics.
- Good Food and Water
- My Motorcycle
- Shelter
- Keeping in touch with friends and family
- Meeting new people
Yea, those five should be sufficient.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The randomness of life. The interactions I have with people. Soup.
On a typical Friday night I am
Catching up with friends, planning a weekend excursion, relaxing over some bbq and beers.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ask any of my friends and they will tell you that I am a sports nut. I am usually the one they turn to to settle debates on sports statistics, information or facts. The thing is...I don't care for all. The only thing I like about sports is that it brings people together and gives everyone a common reason for camaraderie. The other side of it...the obsessiveness, the hardcore mentality of living and dying by your team...I never understood that. I just take it upon myself to learn as much about certain teams and players as I can, just so that I can continue to participate in this absurd theater of athletic idolatry.

Also, I'm unnerved by spiders, but my understanding of their ability to kill other bugs makes me unable to kill them.
