I'm a video editor for Red Hat and have proudly spent most of my life as a geek. Or maybe it's a nerd. Either way, I know what I like and I like it a lot.
I'm from a tiny little town in western North Carolina. You know, the kind where everything shuts down around 7pm. I play the guitar and all things percussion and I'm an N.C. State graduate - started in Computer Science and ended up in Film Studies.
When I'm not staring at computer monitors, I like to play sports, shoot pool with my league teams, and make people laugh.
What I like (a list):
sharing, Creative Commons, billiards, deep discussions, collaborating, football (both kinds), choices, strong handshakes, Digg, film, photography, video editing, rollergirls, Samsung products (I'm strangely loyal), basketball, first-person shooters, chalk, good beer, Acuras, freedom, arguing, taking a stance (and knowing why you did), all kinds of food, being honest and (sometimes extremely) frank
What I don't like:
Marmite (and Vegemite), people who don't listen, stubbornness (though I am), people who give up, violence, failure
