My self-summary
I'm just your average eccentric inventor/mad scientist who wants to change the world. Or take it over. Either way. I love adventures both intellectual and physical, and I try to live every day like it could be my last, mostly because I never know when the robots are going to turn on me.

I'm still working on filling out this profile, so if some sections are still blank or really sparse, check back later!
What I’m doing with my life
As for the question of what I'm actually doing with my life; I graduated college about a year ago now, and I'm currently working as an engineer here in Huntsville. Eventually, I think I'd like to either go back and get my PhD so I can do research and make people call me "professor", or I'd like to start my own company where I can make a living working on and building the things I really love.

Also, perhaps I should be explaining why there would be potentially rebellious robots running around my apartment and possibly wanting to kill me.
Like I said, I love building things. That's my great passion. I've known that's what I wanted to do with my life ever since I was little. Learning how and why things work has always fascinated me (when I was little, my parents used to have to sneak broken appliances out to the trash so I couldn't add them to my already overflowing "invention box"). So naturally there are always a couple of in-progress projects floating around my apartment or the workshop. Floating candy. Home built vacuum freeze drying machine. Flowers made from recycled computer hard drives. You know, standard mad scientist kind of stuff.
So, obviously, at any given time one or more of those things may or may not be well on its way to murderous sentience.
I’m really good at
a little bit of everything. I have a ton of interests and I tend to bounce around between them.
Jack of all Trades
master of none,
but often times better
than a master of one.
There're so many cool, interesting things in the world that I just never seem to be able to stop finding new stuff to learn and be excited about.
The first things people usually notice about me
The cliched answer would be "my laugh", since I laugh A LOT and my voice tends to carry like the thunderous rumblings of a mountain troll.
The REAL answer would be... well, I already mentioned the robots right? So, probably that then. Nothing grabs people's attentions (and burns the image of your face into their minds) quite like crashing a twelve foot tall titanium spider through their living room on family game night.
The six things I could never do without
√∞: the ability to make numbered lists
7: Counting skills
2: Short term memory
9: Short term memory
3.14159: Pie. Delicious pie.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
♦Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
♦If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
♦Are the colors that I see the same as the colors other people see? Does my "green" look the same as for everybody else?
♦What is the meaning of life?
♦What is the sound of one hand clapping?
♦How many licks does it take to get to the tootsie-roll center of a tootsie-roll pop?

Answer key: {egg, yes, yes, 42, surprisingly close to normal clapping, and 252}
On a typical Friday night I am
There' no such thing as a "typical Friday" for me, I'm much too mercurial for that. Sometimes I'm in my lab or the MakerShop working on a project and building stuff. Sometimes I curl up in the hammock with a good book (I hung it from my ceiling so I can use it whenever I want). Other times I'll play a good video game, or catch up on a series on Hulu or Netflix(I haven't watched TV in years). Or maybe I'm at the movies, or a museum, or out stargazing, or filling out a profile on a dating site so I'll have somebody to do these things with.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 20–32
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
the following scenario sounds good to you too:
I want to meet someone, fall hopelessly, recklessly in love, marry my best friend, and eventually start a family. Then maybe clone some dinosaurs, give them cybernetic enhancements, and have a go at taking over the world. Together, as evil madman and madwife.
Picture it:
Me astride my T-Rex with its laser turrets, you atop your Brachiosaurus with its arsenal of plasma cannons. The flickering light of the burning cityscape casting a dancing orange glow across our skin as velociraptor shock troops race through the streets, the terrified screams of the citizenry drifting up to our ears like the gentle cries of seagulls riding a lazy ocean breeze. As a Pterosaur rips apart a helicopter nearby, our gazes meet, and we share a silent moment that seems to stretch on forever, each lost in the other's thoughts. Twinkling with the reflections of far off explosions, our eyes both convey the same simple, undeniable message: "I love you."

Or we could use our combined powers to end world hunger or something. Like I said before, save the world or take it over, I'm cool either way.

Honestly, I've learned enough not to take this first part /too/ seriously. I'm not expecting eternal love at first sight or anything as "srz bznz" as all that. I'd rather just meet someone, hang out, talk, have some fun, get to know each other, and see if there's any potential there. If there's a spark, then that's awesome and we can get more serious. If not, then at least we gave it a shot, and maybe had some fun in the process!
