Personal Profile

"Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence." - Vince Lombardi

profile

I have always considered myself a tinkerer both personally and professionally. It certainly explains my affinity for metrics and data analysis at work and my pursuits of the quantified self and DIY/hacking at home. It also explains my passion for toiling over a keyboard, striving to string the right words together in the right order to convey the perfect thought, description or emotion. You may have heard of this form of tormented self-abuse referred to by its more common term...writing.

Some might label me a "perfectionist," but I believe that term has garnered a negative connotation. When I hear someone being referred to as a perfectionist, I get the impression that they have an almost supervillian focus on a very specific goal and they are indifferent to the collateral damage incurred to achieve that goal. I have no interest in leveling a scorched earth policy to save a few bucks at work or burning down the house to achieve a perfect crème brûlée at home. I'd rather build value that benefits everyone. At work that means the employees, the business, and the customers working together to achieve a sustainable product or service. At home that means my family, my friends, and myself finding happiness in the fragility that is time. Personally, I think that makes me a "pragmatic achiever."
