My self-summary
One fine day in june while I was on a hike, I got some gravel and mud in my sandals. And by "some", I mean half of mount Wai'alei'alei ended up between my toes. Anyway, I thought to myself while trudging toward the promise of panoramic views of Hanalei valley, "why am I really on this hike?" To take a picture? To see more of the beauty that Kauai has to offer? Or was I looking for something? Something inside of me?

I doubt my answers would be objective, but nonetheless.. I learned a valuable life lesson that day. Hike through the jungle in waterproof hiking boots and wool socks, not teva sandals! Rookie mistake.

I am ballsy, optimistic, and smart
What I’m doing with my life
I have a cool job that challenges me every day. Vacations are just a distraction, not an escape... they serve to remind me how much I like what I do, and who I work with.

Having 50% custody of my son is definitely the most important thing I'm doing. We're learning Shaolin Kenpo Karate together at United Studios of Self Defense, which is rewarding and challenging. I love it.
I’m really good at
Getting people fired up. Finding new adventures in unexpected places. Being vague.
The first things people usually notice about me
This totally depends on when they meet me. Was I singing at the time? Telling Jokes? Playing Hockey? Sailing around San Diego bay? Waxing political?

The most common thing I hear when being introduced to people by friends though is "Oooooohhhh this is THAT guy!". Even bad publicity is publicity, right?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books: There are way too many good books. I loved Dragonlance as a kid, and Star of The Guardians. Now, Dan Brown's books are pretty great. I also loved Gods & Generals.. I even named my son after Stonewall Jackson. Blink, by Malcolm Gladwell. Man's Search for Meaning, by Viktor E. Frankl. Richard Feynman is my personal hero, and his book Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman is a manual for how to live right.

movies: dumb & dumber, fight club, monty python and the quest for the holy grail, ocean's 11, kingpin, saving private ryan, ace ventura (both), better off dead, the terminal, indiana jones (1 and 3), star wars, Airplane!

music: I find something positive in almost every form of music. I like to sing though, so singable stuff is usually playing in my car.

food: ornate sushi, fine wine, spicy thai, fresh chile rellenos, cracklin oat bran!
Six things I could never do without
(I'm going to take some license and say that without these things, I wouldn't be quite as happy. There is nothing that could make me decide I can't go on).

- Family
- Friends
- Laughter
- Technology
- Music
- Love -
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The human mind. Its truly fascinating. That statement is also fascinating, as that means the mind is fascinated, by itself.

"Clearly you have a dizzying intellect."
On a typical Friday night I am
"Typical" is a no-no for me. I'm generally putting together new material for the next chapter in the story of my life, which will be set in 14th century China, which means I will have to replace my tales of fixing database servers and writing programs with masterminding ambushes on oppressive governments and using my kung fu skills to free the people. They're almost exactly the same thing!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't like Krispy Kreme donuts. They are an abomination of the donut world.
You should message me if
You are witty, energetic, strong, bold, courageous, full of life. Most importantly, you're not afraid to show those things and just be you.
The two of us
