I seek growth. Mathematician by education, Software Craftsman by
profession, Scientist by epistemology, Dancer by hobby, Chef in my
kitchen, Boisterous when drinking with friends. I strive to
approach any topic with an open mind, but demand truth and

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently finished a BSc Computer Science
Rocky Mountain College, a small liberal arts school in Billings,
A short stint in DC.
I moved to Brooklyn and got a job working at the New York Times. I
absolutely love it here!
I got the biggest news of my life on the move out here... you'll
have to get to know me a bit so I can tell you what it is!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding things out; having a good time; being outdoors.
I love to think through problems, and take great pleasure in
discovering things. I enjoy designing systems and planning
operations. I try to take everything I do with a grain of salt, and
hate taking my self (or others) too seriously. Things flow better
when everyone's comfortable :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm very thoughtful, and when deep in conversation, careful about
what I say. Clear and concise language is a powerful aid to correct
thinking, and an absolute necessity in successful conversation.
That said, I do not mince words or hem-haw over their
I have no respect for stated authority- I will only accept and
respect a person's knowledge in a field as they demonstrate their
abilities and capabilities therein.

Smart and dark humor. Quentin Tarantino is an all-time favorite, as
is Humphrey Bogart. Drama, when done well, is fantastic, and I'm
always ready to cuddle through any chick flick. I don't like horror
and suspense. Vanilla Sky, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,
Fight Club, When Harry Met Sally...
Music, pretty much every genre's represented in my Pandora stations
and Spotify Playlists.
I read voraciously, mostly textbooks and technical writing (in many
fields), as well as literature. Novels, followed by Shakespeare's
plays. I enjoy hard sci-fi, and some soft sci-fi and high fantasy.
I usually put up with the classics, often for my pleasure, though
sometimes only so I can despise them on their (de)merits.
I enjoy eating anything I cook, and I enjoy cooking the animals I
hunt. Deer, Antelope, anything from my grandmother's garden.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Anything and everything.
I craft software. This gives me the opportunity to work in nearly
every area of today's business world, from construction firms to
insurance trusts, the medical industry to law firms and video
games. Outside the office, I have a wonderful time discussing
politics on every level, social movements on any level, history,
science, mathematics- anything that uses my mind, I pursue. When I
know enough about it, the real fun begins: the best part of being
educated is the wider and more subtle jokes to be understood.
Until I meet you, I think I'll think about lying tangent to your
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sipping coffee sketching ideas of quantum physics, computer
science, and law, or camping a few miles into the back
Probably my favorite Friday night was on the Froze to Death
plateau. We were attempting Granite peak. I got up in the middle of
the night to use the restroom. It had been thundering when we went
to bed, but when I got out of the tent, it was clear sky all
around. The stars overhead were as numerous as in tales of the
Cheyenne Braves of lore, the mountain goats were standing to one
side. A perfect night in a perfect wilderness.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a secret. A dark, terrible secret. A secret with scruff,
brown hair, long claws, sharp teeth... less a secret, really, and
more a bear.

You enjoy having lighthearted conversations about serious topics.
You want to meet someone who's unafraid of any avenue of thought,

more. You enjoy fairytales mixing Cinderella and Eigenvectors
