My self-summary
I'm just a regular Joe, with a regular job
I'm your average white, suburbanite slob
I like football and porno and books about war
I got an average house, with a nice hardwood floor

Not really, but Denis Leary is pretty darn funny. Though I am white and do like football. And I guess pretty average in a lot of ways too but that's the nature of bell curves right? So I guess the question becomes, in what areas am I not average? Ah, good question. Generosity, sometimes to a fault. I'm an above average dancer, though average is a pretty low bar to clear :). I'm below average at making small talk, though I enjoy good conversations. I'm an above average skier, probably an average snowboarder and who knows about sledding, it's been too long. I'm an above average listener.

I grew up playing sports of all kinds with my brothers and I still enjoy to play when I get a chance but I find myself watching more sports than I did in my youth. There's nothing better than watching Oregon State, my beloved alma mater, play football, especially if they're playing well and winning :)
What I’m doing with my life
Most days are filled by by my job as an electrical engineer.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't read that much, certainly not as much as I should, but my favorite book is All the King's Men by Robert Penn Warren - a good story but even better prose.

Friday Night Lights is probably my favorite TV show, but Terriers and The Wire are right up there too.

The best movie I've ever seen was Saving Private Ryan, at least from my visceral reaction at the time because I watched it only once. My favorite movie, though, might be A Few Good Men or Old School or Casablanca or American Beauty or Super Troopers or Good Will Hunting, I can't really say for sure.

My music taste depends on my mood - could be Silversun Pickups, NIN, A Tribe Called Quest, Radiohead, System of a Down, Modest Mouse, more pop-type artists that I'm not willing to admit to liking right now :).

I absolutely don't have a favorite food, I like all types - seafood, steak, Italian, Mexican, Thai, tapas, etc. I appreciate wine with a good meal but I prefer beer, and my favorite is Jubelale from Deschutes Brewery but it's only available at Christmas time.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking, though not about any one thing. I'll hear something or see a random image or stub my toe and it will lead to a seemingly unrelated thought and I'll ponder it through.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm usually just taking it easy, hanging out with friends.
You should message me if
You should message me if any of this intrigues you at all. Because who knows, maybe that's only the tip of the iceberg. In fact, it's likely that's only the tip of the iceberg.
