My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like music as much as I like science. Perhaps even more, but that's open to interpretation?

I've:
-taken dérives out in the city, flipping coins to find out which direction to turn at each intersection
-hopped trains
-snuck onto the roof of a nightclub just to kiss a girl
-covered international electronic music festivals on press passes (Moogfest 2012, Bloc 2012)
-sang with a choir at the Kennedy Center and the Lincoln Memorial during a recent presidential inauguration
-installed Linux onto my iPod
-overclocked my wireless router
-melted my wireless router
-overclocked it properly the second time around
-explored the inside of a Cold War-era Nike missile silo at 1:30 in the morning
-squatted for two days and two nights at Stanford University Hospital's ER
-lived, loved, and lost

I want to meet you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Seven months ago, this is what I wrote:

-wrapping up my undergrad degree in biomedical engineering
-helping run my campus radio station
-deciding, for future career options, between the private spaceflight biz and music
-probably procrastinating on schoolwork.

It's changed since then:

- running an artist management company
- handling tech/social media for an LA beatmaker collective, Rootnote
- writing about music at my friend's blog, Gruff Trade (http://www.grufftrade.org/)
- living life a day at a time
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- recommending people music
- passing for knowledgeable using Wikipedia knowledge and...intuition
- finding things on the Internet
- sprezzatura
- procrastination
- BULLET-POINTING ALL THE THINGS

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I seem to know everything about everything. (This is false, but hey....Wikipedia knowledge, yo)

My gold earrings.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I have a love/hate relationship with namedropping, so I'll stick to themes and characteristics. Ask me for specifics!

Books: Utopias and dystopias. Mutterings from the Beat Generation. Hallucinatory portrayals of the implications of technology on the environment and society-at-large. The fluidity of memory. Transgression.

Movies: Mindfuck. Film noir. Spaghetti and acid westerns. Synergistic soundtracks. Black comedy. Postmodern romance. Beautiful color.

Shows: Metahumor. Tropes, deconstructed. Crossover with my movie preferences.

Music: If I had to narrow it down to a couple of categories, it'd be electronic (90s Warp stuff, '06-'07 UK dubstep, jungle/DnB/breakcore, LA/Japanese bass/beats music, and the weird UK garage/house/techno hybrids coming out of London and Berlin in the last two years), post-rock, well-produced hip-hop, south Indian classical (Carnatic music), and film soundtracks/contemporary classical.

lol, I don't think I narrowed it down much at all...but annnnyways, for the whole picture: http://www.last.fm/user/NewSpeek

Food: I don't have a strict favorite. My mother made sure to train that out of me as a kid. That being said, CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES, HUMMUS, SRIRACHA, FIGS, CORNBREAD hnnnnnnnnngggg
The six things I could never do without

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My rather fluid comfort zone leads me into pretty awesome situations outside the norm, but also into pretty weird, and possibly negative ones, too. "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..."

I've been a huge flake in the past. Moving from the East Coast to LA forced that out of my system for the most part.

That doesn't mean that I'm perfect now, or that I'm automatically tolerant of flaking in other people, but just that...I'm emotionally equipped to deal with it.
