A few random facts about me:

  • I find cleaning a kitchen, especially the countertops oddly satisfying.
  • Small talk is the worst. Let’s talk big.
  • My board game collection is well in excess of 200, 300 if you count expansions.
  • Letting my kids make mistakes is the worst and most satisfying thing I do as a parent. Hopefully there’s lots of learning along with them. 😉
  • I usually believe the best about someone, but you can only set of my BS-ometer so many times before I stop believing you. Luckily for you I won’t treat you much differently, if at all.
  • I’d rather you interrupt me and start a discussion on a topic than you let me talk about something you already know about or don’t want to hear.
  • I’m always looking for better ways of doing things. I don’t believe I have things figured out totally, just a lot of the way.
  • My art is a by-product of me keeping busy in order to pay attention. Research shows those who doodle pay more attention and retain more than those who don’t.
  • On a related note: I love sharpies. My brand loyalty to sharpies is extremely high when it comes to markers.
  • I speak French, though I must admit my skills continue to deteriorate given how often I practice.
  • I love dogs, but I’m a cat person.
