Professionally, I work with computers and people. Occasionally, I am also a formal student, which is a fancy way of saying I'm an under-socialized and over-educated masochist who pays for the experience.
As typical of many engineer types, I prefer verbally explicit honest communication, use words as descriptors rather than value judgements, fall into problem-solving mode too easily, and am comfortable with silence.
Do not take a lack of response personally - I go through periods where I don't log in to OKCupid for months, and then I'll be on for days at a time. I am more reliably reached via mobile.
I am talented, curious, and intellectual.
Update as of 201410: I just started a new job in SF, so while I'd love to hang out, between New Job Stuff, the commute, remodeling, and the new puppy, timing is very tight.
