My self-summary
Originally from Iowa, I once flew to China sight unseen and without a job in an effort to see the world. I moved to Madison after spending quite a while in New York, so exploring my new surroundings has been interesting.
I used to cook for a living. I cooked for over a decade before I needed a new challenge. Now I've founded a company to work with the Red Cross to train soldiers, police, and humanitarian workers how to deal with the world they inhabit.

I strongly believe that having a set view of the world, a "cup of tea", is for the dogs. Grow, explore, dig.
What I’m doing with my life
Programming, swimming, sailing (when its warm), constructing random projects and learning random skills
The first things people usually notice about me
If you get past the shy, quiet phase you might find:
Bombastic (for shits and giggles)
Sarcastic
Intense
Romantic (in the classical sense)
Emphatic
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
Fahrenheit 451, Another Roadside Attraction, Hot Sour Salty Sweet, One Hundred Years of Solitude, The Travels of Marco Polo.
I'm (slowly) working my way through The Years of Lyndon Johnson.
My bookcase is full of cookbooks and food-related nonfiction. I don't read nearly enough fiction and I'm trying to break that.

Movies:
Harold & Maude (!), Empire of the Sun, Snatch, The Darjeeling Limited, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

Breaking Bad, The Wire, Pushing Daisies, Mad Men, Narcos, Doctor Who.

Music:
Funk, Early Punk, Early Jazz, Warren Zevon, Erkan Ogur, Radiohead, Beck, Gregory Isaacs, Pink Floyd, Gilberto Gil, The Internet, Calle 13, anything that I haven't heard before.
After much consideration, I would have to say that The Velvet Underground's, Loaded, is the best album ever made.
