Somebody asked me about my education and background at another forum and hasn't given me the satisfaction of a reply yet - so I thought I would take the opportunity to talk about myself here. :P

I’ve lived a lot of places before where I’m at now, several of them more than once. Kansas, Montana, Minneapolis, Chicago, LA, Kansas (again), Rhode Island, Salt Lake, Rhode Island (again), Minneapolis (again), then back to Salt Lake - (again).

I studied theater design at the Goodman School of Drama / DePaul University in Chicago and industrial design at the Rhode Island School of Design on nearly full scholarships. I’ve considered an advanced degree, but it holds little value for my line of work and I remain indecisive about what I would want to study and if “personal development” is a worthy reason to pursue another degree.

I have a great little family.

I’m active in my religion.

I’m the principal of a design firm that creates branded environments.

I facilitate men’s work, think Robert Bly. My mission is to reach my full potential by helping other people to recognize theirs.

I have a chronic genetic degenerative disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis where my immune system eats my cartilage so my bones fuse together and I loose range of movement. I’ve had symptoms since I was 17 but wasn’t dx’d until I was 27, it hurts a lot, but I’ve got it under control.

I ski, hike, camp and climb.

I read books.

I’d like to to make custom Star Wars stuff rugged enough to be played with.

I’d give my left nut to be on Survivor.

I’m 32 years old.

  • 1. From age 9 to 23, I lived in Lucas' hometown (until I escaped to someplace a little less dead).
  • 2. I know more about Star Wars figures than I do about the movies.
  • 3. Up until November of 2002, I owned just about every loose figure ever made.
  • 4. Over the past year and a half, I've sold just about my entire modern collection.
  • 5. I have 25 MOC vintage Stormtroopers that I used to have on my wall in a Warhol-esque display.
  • 6. I have a physical science degree that I really don't use.
  • 7. I wish my degree was in fine art.
  • 8. I am vegetarian.
  • 9. I have a wife who's name is a region of the world.
  • 10. My 4-month old daughter's name is also a geographical region...but different than my wife's.
  • 11. I've broken my left pinkie finger at the knuckle, my right pinkie finger at the metacarpal, and my left hip (not all at the same time).
  • 12. I'm halfway to 70.

1.  I love old television sitcoms (especially Andy Griffith and Leave it to Beaver)
2.  I am allergic to cheese
3.  I just accidentally ran a red light a few hours ago
4.  I take at least one shower every day
5.  I am proud of the fact that I am a "dork"
6.  I still believe in chivalry and practice it regularly
7.  My left foot is asleep
8.  I think waitresses are underappreciated for doing a largely thankless sub-minimum wage job that depends on the kindness of strangers for financial reward
9.  I once gave David Prowse the finger (he didn't see me)
10.  I think that anyone who charges money for their autograph out of a desire to make a quick buck for themselves needs to reevaluate why they became an entertainer (this relates to why number 9 occurred in the first place)
11.  My favorite book is "To Kill a Mockingbird" and I even thought the movie was great as well (a rare thing for me)
12.  I have been cheated on by every girlfriend I've ever dated because I was "the type of guy you marry" and not the one you want to date seriously.  ::)

Why?

If you mean about SW, well it’s just going downhill isn’t it? If you’re asking about the deletions, it was my rather pathetic (and unsuccessful) attention-seeking ploy.
