I really enjoy creative problem solving and am motivated by the excitement of learning new things. My favorite projects get people to think about old things in new ways.

Every so often, things I do come close to art. If turning a piece of geometrical reasoning into a fancy drawing only takes some extra shading, I’ll do it!
If turning a beautiful physics experiment into something you could hang in your living room requires switching up the pens here and there, I’ll do that too!

When I visit a country that speaks a language I don't know, I have a local teach me to say "thank you" and "nice to meet you" then I endeavor to say them as much as possible. I absolutely love to travel and like to make the most of my business trips. I have been to 46 US states, 5 Canadian provinces and a decent number of countries in Europe and Asia.
I used to say that I can't really play the guitar, or piano . . . but I can fake it if there are no real musicians around. I still fake the piano but I have since gotten much better at guitar.
I can play my hands like a flute. Ask me to play a song and I'll show you. I can also play a few notes or whistles on basically any thin pipe. A few examples: PVC piping, soda cans, ziti and on most of the components in a modern pen.
