Outside of work
Life is about more than just work though.
My wife Bevin and I
our various adventures and experiences. We like to travel, spend time outdoors, take pictures, and knit.
I was homeschooled until I started going to college at age 16, and this has given
me a strong ability to self-manage. Being homeschooled taught me to always ask "why", and
never to stand around waiting to be told the answer. I love finding out new things, and I
find that the best way to learn is to put myself into new situations.
I've always liked Heinlein's
specialization is for insects
philosophy, and I've tried to learn to do as many varied things as possible.
I play the Pipe Organ, Piano, really anything with a keyboard, although currently not professionally. I keep trying to
learn guitar, but it makes my brain hurt even more than my fingers.
I like to fly multi-copters, and would love to get my pilot's license someday. I grew up outdoors, and
learned how to do everything from operating a backhoe, to wrangling boyscouts; from cutting down a tree, to building a
roof. Horses are weird. I'm known to wear a Kilt. The only tie I own has DisneyWorld monorails on it.
In a pinch I'm capable of knitting a sweater. I'm
at cooking, but it's not my favorite. (I prefer Ansible to Chef...)
