My self-summary
I'm a computer programmer by trade. I swing swords for fun in a theatrical combat troupe (usually not on the streets randomly, jail sucks). I listen to music all the time, the heart-beat of life. I play a little guitar (badly). I also make mead, since all music sounds better with a glass of delicious nectar in hand. I also watch movies, a lot of 'em, the stranger the better. I have a wit and can use it, sometimes, and a great thirst for folks who have well-developed senses of humor. Life is far too important to take too seriously all the time. I love travelling to Europe, and Ireland in particular. I have yet to fall off the Cliffs of Moher. I like to game, and play music trivia at Conor O'Neills.

I am witty, easy-going, and geeky
What I’m doing with my life
Writing code, playing guitar, writing more code. I'm developing the mead-making craft, and will be getting back into general tomfoolery with sharp pointy things as soon as the Fest season is over.
I’m really good at
I'm a good software developer. I can usually elicit at least a smile when someone needs one. I used to be good at stunt combat, but have gotten rusty over the years.

6. Ireland
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about the splashing of a creek and how it relates to early music. I think about colors, and what it would be to be blind. I think about steadying my thoughts and riding out the storm. I think about how relaxing a slight breeze across an open field can be.
On a typical Friday night I am
going to a concert in Detroit or a pub in Ann Arbor, maybe a film down town or a small fire in Ypsi.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, it is the internet. so...
You should message me if
you think we can have something to talk about. I almost guarantee we can, of course, since these things are impossible to full flesh out. Self-selection guarantees that the most interesting aspects are probably hidden until a conversational doorway opens and let's them in to hang up their coat, grab a pipe, and warm their feet by the fire.

Or you have a good recipe for using mead.
