My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"A detached, observant, and indifferent man. I am constantly under scrutiny by the society that surrounds me...that is okay....Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow" -- Influenced by Albert Camus|George Sand

The quote represents my persona as an artist, an architectural designer, and an engineer, whichs translates into an imaginative, intransigent, and introspective individual.

As an extrovertible introvert, I prefer to observe, then act accordingly or not at all. I don't judge; I don't care enough. I am more than willing to help others in need, but nothing of humanity will leave me shocked or saddened. I've been desensitized to society. You may think this is negative, but it's quite the opposite: the eyes of a sentient, yet quixotic realist.

I am very passionate towards a few things. You will find out as you read further.

Ok. I'll tell you one: music. I'll periodically post a song that I like:

I have faults....
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a graduate student in architecture and structural engineering at UC-Berkeley (M.Arch|MS program). In other words, I don't sleep much for 9 months of the year. As of now, I've completed the M.Arch (5|2014) and will finish the MS in a year.

During the summer I worked on R&D projects for an early-stage SF A|E|C firm doing design| material research| structural analysis on prefab, modular prototypes. In other words, the dyson|ikea of architecture. I can't say much more about it.

I co-teach two courses in structures for architecture grads and undergrads at CAL.

For shits and gigs, I do contract work. At the moment, I work with an architect in Oakland on two projects: one is in San Pablo; the other is in Mt Shasta.

Now, I may be working on another project with a professor at Cal.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Design: from technical endeavors like my professional field to artwork, graphic design, carpentry, and painting that are more cathartic hobbies.

Controlling emotion, while having numerous thoughts and feelings twirling around in my brain.

Self awareness and social environs.

I am looking for highly cerebral books on the human psyche and interaction coupled with a philosophical undertone. Now, this hybrid genre may not exist, ha, but I'm in pursuit. I need to venture out and diversify from my inundation of design and engineering literature. If you know of any, please share.

The six things I could never do without

Books

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
my portfolio and skillset (75% of the time); the real meaning of life; philosophy; music; books that are conducive to enhancing one's quality of being, intelligence, passion, etc; computational/parametric design; BIM; the realization that society is at the precipice of a dramatic change due to tech, and how this affects my personal endeavors...

All the aforementioned can be, and most often is, coalesced into one paradoxical mindset regarding my existence in the design industry: to differentiate, optimize, and develop a niche, yet continually adapt, evolve, and maintain general awareness to avoid being lost in specialization.

The inventions, designs, and technological breakthroughs presented in TEDTalks, and how I can reach that level in my profession.

A small portion of my mind focuses on the inevitable...

On whether I have any intention on pursuing someone on this site or do I just like to look at profiles. I am inquisitive.

On the accuracy of astrological birth signs: I have to admit most descriptions of the Pisces man are pretty damn close to me. It's scary how close. It sort of puts the kibosh on being completely unique in the world to some extent. Then again it only suggests an underlying prescription for human kind. I don't know, but it's interesting.

Another is the thought of the human self comprised of the physical and immaterial. The immaterial purportly the 'soul' is a database of experience, but is it a mechanism of self conditional statement of 'do, while' or 'if-then, else-if' conditionals that ultimately form a moral compass. There definitely is more, but what is this. The person of ten years ago may not be the same person of today: If somehow one were to meet that 'former' self could you say you're identical? Would you trust your former self with very serious decisions that would affect your present self under the intent that you are him so you know everything he/she would do? Also, technology comes up with a process where you can store your brain and its contents in storage to be supplanted into a donor body or android. It this new body really you. You think it's you. But what if later you were a carbon copy of your 'real' self who turned out to use you as an observatory experiment. Now there is the quandary. Material changes, so would you the 'android|cyborg|body donor' self have a good argument to say you are just as you as the first self?

Although I fully support the purported efficacy and ubiquity of the dating process through this medium and would gladly confirm my Okc account if asked, I move into this realm with insouciance and question how well it works.

More likely than not, I'm surfing Okc during moments of inactivity.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you want...I won't bite, unless evoked.

you have athletic, fit, and or jacked to describe your physique. It is obvious that personality, intelligence, and commonalities are the more salient qualities to any meaningful relationship, but that combination should evince a desire for perfection in all areas that are of interest to you. What is of more interest then your own body? In short, I am looking for someone willing to hit the gym, swim, drag me to yoga to endure my embarrassing moments, go surfing, biking, try a triathlon, do anything physical.
