Who am I?
I'm an Aerospace Engineer. I like planes and spacecraft. There may be an occasion or two when I might chime in on matters of "why actually, it is
rocket science." If I had it my way, I'd be working on making civilian spaceflight a reality. I've got plenty of time to enter that game.
I'm a blogger. I've been writing, and filming original content for several years now. I'm becoming more and more involved in the technical part of my site's
web development, and so I've become more and more interested in web languages.
I'm a performer. I danced for many years, and I've sang in many ears. What I'm known for in more personal circles is dramatic story telling. I plan to audition for The Moth in the next year.
I'm an athlete? I ride my bicycle a lot and I do marital arts. That counts, right? Now I play bike polo, so I guess I found a way to combine the two.
I'm a linguist. I speak decent Japanese, rubbish Russian, and a scattered vocabulary for a few others. I love learning language, and it makes me sad that I don't get to use these skills more.
I live in Washington, DC. I love the city and I am involved in many local creative groups and events. I ride annually in both the Seersucker Social, and the Autumn Tweed Ride. I also participate in some local fashion events.
I am a motorcyclist. I got my M certification in 2009, and I really love to take recreational rides on the George Washington Pkwy. I ride a naked 2003 Suzuki SV650.
I've been a vegan since May, 2010. I choose to do so for moral, social, ecological, and health reasons. I love to cook and I am usually very eager to share recipes or trade tips. I have yet to "veganize" my wardrobe, but I try to keep leather to minimum on new products, or purchase clothing second hand (which is ultimately the far superior eco-alternative).
I like to travel and couch-surf. I've met many A2K members in real life on my trips. I hope to meet more on future trips, or in the event that any pass through DC.
Yeah... uh.... that's me.
My name "failures art" is a lyric from the Elliott Smith song "Tomorrow, Tomorrow."
