My self-summary
I'm an introvert (INTJ), so I like learning things and exploring places. I also do things in an effort to figure things out and learn about the world, myself, and other people.

I was a software engineer, but I've now switched to my second career as a novelist writing fiction.

I've traveled to China, Hong Kong, Italy, France, England, and parts of the US. There's still various places I want to see, especially Greece, Japan, India, Egypt, and Russia. I feel like it's about time to do some traveling again. I generally go for long periods. Last time, I was in London for 6 weeks.

I enjoy trying different foods and exploring places, visiting museums, seeing new things.
What I’m doing with my life
I like stories and things of wonder. Recently, I've been designing and running some table top RPGs at local conventions.
I’m really good at
Focusing, figuring things out, and getting things done with an attention to detail. Pretty boring, huh? But that has helped me succeed at various high tech start up companies in the Silicon Valley.

I graduated from the Clarion West and Odyssey Writers Workshops for science fiction, fantasy and horror. They called me the Plot Doctor. I was really good at taking various elements in their stories and figuring out a unique and logical conclusion.

Blending in. I've been asked by people in China, Taiwan, and Italy for directions. They thought I was a local. Go figure.

On a typical Friday night I am
Currently, Friday night is one of my racquet ball nights. So, I'm at the gym, hitting a blue ball against a wall at 100mph.
