I am an ideasman, a solutionist, a problem solver.
My day job is an US Air Force Network Administrator. I didn’t have a computer until I joined the military in 1998. Now it feels like they’ve always been around.
My entire adult life has been in the military. It’s been a great ride so far. I’ve had the opportunity to live and work in 5 countries and visit 15 others (I don’t count it as visited if I didn’t use the bathroom there).
I work best alone and with loud music (mostly movie scores). My favorite music is all music. “I’m better with hand stuff than brain stuff,” is something I really say about myself. I also make jokes and say that 88% of the things that come out my mouth are not to be taken seriously. It’s ok if someone doesn’t get the jokes, because there will be another one firing in a few minutes.
I’m obsessed with understanding things. I read. I ask questions. I challenge perceptions and invite others to defend their positions. These things don’t go super awesome in the military. I mean they don’t go “well” or “awesomely” (need an adverb there)…sorry about that. Proper grammar is important to me too. Poor grammar isn’t a sign of low intelligence; it just appears that way.
I have a passion for languages and cultures. I have formally studied Spanish, Korean, and German. Currently, I’m teaching myself American Sign Language (because not conjugating verbs is freakin’ awesome).
I’m the oldest of three siblings – a sister and brother. I have one unsuccessful marriage that’s given me two amazing kids, who are currently nailing toddlerhood – a boy and girl.
I love art – all of the art. I have a deep appreciation for the ways human beings have come up with to express themselves.
I’m never 100% sure that I put on deodorant unless it’s the moment I’m replacing the cap to the deodorant. I check. I figure it’s better to be caught looking at your armpit than to be caught foul under there.
One of the most valuable gifts I’ve ever received was a book with empty pages given to me by a cousin after high school graduation. I began to use writing to capture new feelings, experiences and romances. I’ve been using writing to release ever since. Writing has evolved for me into something therapeutic and fulfilling.
