My self-summary
With this profile, I'm never sure whether to err on the side of being overly earnest, overly facetious, or overly mocking--in other words, whether to bore, confuse, or anger you. If I end up doing a little of all three, feel free to contact OKCupid's refund division.

My Myers-Briggs type is IKTP.
What I’m doing with my life
After working in the game industry for several years, then taking a year and change off to work on some personal projects relating to gaming and AI, I've recently joined a startup building a new kind of virtual reality. The dreams of the 90s are alive in San Francisco!

Other than that, I'm consuming vast quantities of visual entertainment--Netflix could probably clone my mind based purely on my ratings--spending too much time reading online news forums and Wikipedia, attempting to keep myself in shape by walking up hills and rowing nowhere, reading a book now and then (spoiler: the conflict is resolved), and watching people for signs of sapience.
I’m really good at
Napping. I know a lot of people say this, but seriously, I will challenge anyone to a sleep-off. Ever heard of Sleeping Beauty Syndrome? If those are the professionals, then I am at least an Olympic-class amateur.
The first things people usually notice about me
Without a doubt, my first name. It was forged long ago on the steppes of Poland as a secret weapon to confuse and disorient invaders. It didn't work against the Cossacks, the Tatars, the Swedes... the Germans... the Russians... damn. Anyway, the secret formula's hidden somewhere in this profile, in case you want to join the invasion club.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: My all-time favorite author is undoubtedly Nabokov. His use of language leaves me breathless, and his brilliant cruelty never fails to make me smile. A couple other favorites are Kazantzakis, for a substantially more sympathetic but no less evocative view of humanity; and Stanislaw Lem, for exciting my corpus callosum. For nonfiction, you can't beat the edutainment of hometown favorite Mary Roach.

Movies: The tip of the iceberg would include the irresistible agony of Todd Solondz, the heartrending reveries of Krzysztof Kieślowski, the joyful playthings of Jean-Pierre Jeunet, the transportive sagas of Hayao Miyazaki, the thoughtful weirdness of Werner Herzog, the raw weirdness of Harmony Korine, and the ineffable weirdness of David Lynch. Oh, and (the better examples of) horror, action, science fiction, and superhero films.

Shows: Currently, I'm with everyone else in the stands for the Game of Thrones, and I remain loyal to South Park and Futurama (and yes, even the prolonged Simpsons). Looking back, I thought the science-fiction-lite of LOST was brilliant (and yet to be replicated), the war drama of Battlestar Galactica was enveloping, and Jack Bauer remains my #1 man-crush.

Music: Some goth and industrial selections from my teens and early college years, when music seemed to matter more than anything; a lot of 80s music, from when I realized that joy and nostalgia were also permissible in the mix; some alt-country and roots rock, since I discovered it had the pathos of goth without the fantasy aspect; some underground hip-hop, because "Why do you think they call it dope?"; various forms of electronic dance music, indie rock, pop, and even some 20th century classical music, because everyone needs a little culture.

Food: All.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee, Internet, note paper, reflection, music, laughter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm going to repurpose this question to describe a recurring non-sexual fantasy. I'm an aged warrior, from a time before time: my body is a skeleton made of wrought iron, or like a Giacometti figure come to life, perhaps or perhaps not covered in bandages like a mummy. I hold a sword and roam a world either verdant and innocent, but threatened by mechanized tyrants, or gray and post-apocalyptic, filled with the half-collapsed husks of skyscrapers and scavengers struggling to survive.

Please tell me you have a similar fantasy, or else I will feel like a colossal nerd.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out with friends, drinking, or in with imaginary friends, thinking.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I seem to be one of the few people who've been to Burning Man, enjoyed themselves, but whose lives weren't fundamentally altered as a result. I attribute this either to my prodigious strength of personality or my titanic perverse streak.
I’m looking for
