My self-summary
One day, I want to build a log cabin. And possibly have a small herd of buffalo. Some friends and I crunched the numbers on it: Do you know how many burgers you can make from a buffalo? A lot. Like, enough so that if you joined me, we could eat buffalo burgers for a year and have leftovers.

I like having a destination in mind and letting the trip fill itself in.
What I’m doing with my life
Bought a house, so I've kept busy with little upgrades, and patches. Right now, I'm trying to design a deck.

Saturdays during the summer, you'll find me biking on the Burke, circling Lake Washington, or getting lost in the Snoqualmie Valley. During the Fall / Winter, the bike is traded for some skates and a stick. Fall Saturdays belong to Michigan football.

Since I live in Seattle, I brew beer occasionally. Seems like a requirement. "Welcome to Seattle. Here's your flannel, beard, and brewery kit. Pick your piercings up in Portland."
I’m really good at
Acting like I know where I'm going. And DIY projects. Nothing I've built has killed anyone yet. Or even slightly maimed anyone.
The first things people usually notice about me
Facial hair. People notice that pretty quickly since it covers a portion of my face. Rule of thumb: When things are on your face, people notice them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Iliad, anything Bradbury or Asimov, the Enders Game series, The Martian, anything by John Bacon

Seger, Springsteen, The Who, Zeppelin, Black Keys

I can always rewatch Animal House, Fury Road, or Super Troopers.

I'm a big fan of nachos and beer. I exercise so that I don't get fat from nachos and beer.
The six things I could never do without
My Zune.

Good alcohol. Like whiskey. Or scotch. Or anything with a brownish color to it.

Hockey. And the hope that one day Seattle will get an NHL team.

Dad's advice. And humor.

Freedom. The joy of deciding that you have free time / a little extra cash and you're going to a concert or camping that night.

Vernors. Canada Dry can't hold a candle to it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The dripping sound after my dishwasher runs. The fear that my house is slowly disintegrating around me.

When I win the lottery, who I would have play at a music festival.
On a typical Friday night I am
doing what I do on a typical Saturday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My rewards phone number for grocery stores is (415) 867-5309. Shh, don't tell anyone.
You should message me if
You happen to be the talk of high society
You know you've got a decent personality
You could be a heiress to Rockefeller
You could be a waitress or a bank teller
You make the Venus de Milo look like she's got no style
And make Sheena of the Jungle look meek and mild

Or if you want to go ice skating for a first date.
