Hello, and welcome to my new and improved Dreamwidth journal.

I began this journal on Livejournal back in 2001. It was the first social network I belonged to, and through it, I made many extremely good friends, some of whom still may even read this.

A little background on me.

I'm a middle aged white dude living in suburbia. I live in a house with my wife Lisa and my two dogs, Clyde and Tallulah. I went to college to study music in hopes of being an opera singer, but ultimately became a software developer when I realized that I really like eating and being able to pay rent. I work primarily in web development for NOAA, but I do freelance work every now and then, usually when I need a new phone or something. I still sing and do theater every now and then, and will shamelessly use this journal to promote any shows that I'm in.

I'm very passionate about civil and human rights. I reject, absolutely, all forms of racism, discrimination, homophobia, etc. and do all I can to support causes that I believe in.

I'm a massive nerd. I used to be self conscious about that, but I now consider this the time of the geek. I watch way too much TV, read all manner of science fiction books (and am always open to recommendations), go to conventions, cosplay, etc. Mentally, I'm still 12.

I am fiercely loyal to the people I care about and do not suffer disrespect toward them at all.

Although I've never been to Burning Man, I do consider myself a burner. I go to local burning man events such as Playa Del Fuego, Wicker Man and Sunburn. The way I see it, the most important aspect of Burning Man isn't so much the event itself, but the Ten Principles. That said, I do hope to go one day.

I'm pretty much a "let it all hang out" kind of person, meaning that although I do often lock my posts, it's not hard to get on my friends list, and I don't really censor myself overmuch on my journal. For much of my life, I've compartmentalized myself, even when I was on LJ. Here, I just am who I am. I'm too old to hide aspects of myself that I think might not be for everyone. I'm not a very private person largely because I don't have anything to hide.

So, hi. Welcome. Would you care for a martini? I assure you, they're quite dry. (or preferred non-alcoholic equivalent if you don't drink)

(One thing I'm keeping from my old journal is my race times. I may put these into a post later, but I want to make sure I still have the times recorded somewhere)

My races so far include:

The Penguin Pace 2011 Gun Time: 29:26.07 Chip Time: 29:05.86
The Cherry Blossom 2011: Gun Time: 1:42:09 Chip Time: 1:33:42
The Army 10 Miler 2011: Gun time: 2:03:27 Chip Time: 1:44:44
The Annapolis (Mostly) Half Marathon* 2011: Gun Time: 1:56:21 Chip Time: 1:54:55


*It is strongly suspected that the distance of this race was short of an actual 13.1 miles. My guess is it was closer to 12.65-12.73. Either way it represents a PR for me, I just don't quite know what that PR is.
