I was into punk when it first came out; I like most kinds of music. I have worked all my life, starting around 10, publishing an alternative school newspaper. I'm a software developer and usability expert. I prefer the big city to the country.
I was a DJ and newspaper editor in college. I started my professional career at 16. I've programmed and designed primary literacy and ESL software for Houston Independent School District.
My management style is to own issues and resolve them, and not be concerned with blame. If you work for me and you make an honest mistake, it's probably my fault, that I haven't communicated what I expect (that's a parenting style, as well, but mine is grown). I was principally a software developer at my last office job, but I pitched in on sales calls, customer service calls, and marketing, as needed. I prefer to have some connection with my customers, so that they know I am concerned about their issues, and feel a personal connection to the product, through me.
My management style is similar to how I try with work with life partners, accounting for different a dynamic of being equal partners; when we work out issues, it is important to be honest, not assign blame, but rather, identify what is important to each partner, and work through a solution that satisfies both of our needs.
When I make new friends, I prefer to get to know someone that has a mixture of some similar interests, and interests in things I know nothing about.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I think it's important to either find something you both like for the first date, and evolve it, or be flexible; or, one person takes charge of making the decisions and also making sure the other person enjoys it. In each case, flexibility is important.
