My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
● I'm a bit of a strange bird. I used to wear my weirdness on my sleeve (it was the '90s, what can I say), but now I let it roost where it may. That said, I'm fairly down-to-earth and reserved, more of a listener than a talker. (Which is not to say that I can't hold a conversation.)
● I love to travel, and lately have been trying to go abroad more often, but I'm always up for shorter trips to nearby places and won't say no to the chance for a quick getaway to somewhere like Olympia or Bellingham or West Seattle. The peninsula and the islands are lovely as well. At the same time, I love all the things Seattle has to offer: art, music, food. (Shocking, I know.) I like hiking and getting outdoors, but don't do it as much as I should.
● I was a math prodigy in high school, but didn't really feel that was my calling so I ended up studying theater and Russian literature in college, then spent my 20s traveling around the US, writing fiction and supporting myself by tutoring math and test prep with a smattering of other odd jobs thrown in. By the time I realized that famous novelist was not in the cards for me as far as career paths, the big data thing was beginning to happen, so I segued into that. (I like to think of myself as the canary in the data mine.) I still spend a lot of time reading and writing, though, and I appreciate the perspective that my earlier, sometimes hand-to-mouth, existence has given me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
● Working on my thesis in Computational Linguistics.
● Writing my fourth novel. Slowly.
● Playing in a band that makes pleasant/delightfully weird background music infused with various bits and pieces of broadcasts, jingles, voices, etc. as a mechanism for building up the body's natural defenses against the media saturation of contemporary society.
● Reading constantly.
● Still managing to find plenty of time for napping, drinking beer, and more napping.
● Trying to travel as much as possible. Short trips, long trips, there's never enough vacation time.
● Wasting time playing too much chess and words with friends on my phone. And playing pinball not on my phone.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
● Games (except for video games; anything that involves more than a joystick and a button seems like overkill to me)
● Sleeping in
● Writing
● Thinking outside the box/forcing square pegs into round holes
● Noticing the little details
● Maths

I read a lot. Lately I mix it up between fiction and sciencey stuff.

● As far as fiction goes, I'm in a phase where I really love complex, dense books: Thomas Pynchon, Murakami, Umberto Eco, Moby Dick, Salman Rushdie, Borges.
● As far as non-fiction, I read a lot of stuff on linguistics and how the mind works, evolution (of animals, humans, civilizations, ideas). I'm not a huge fan of the growing trend of opinion/cultural criticism/personal essay-type writing, but I will admit that I really dig Chuck Klosterman, even when I disagree with him.
● I was super into fantasy and sci-fi as a little kid, but in 8th grade I was introduced to Kurt Vonnegut and it was all downhill from there: Hunter S. Thompson and William S. Burroughs followed, then existentialists and a passel of various Russians (Dostoevsky, Gogol, Daniil Kharms, Bulgakov, Sologub) ... I could go on.
● I had a list of authors that I think are overrated/just rub me the wrong way, but I decided that seemed dickish, so I will leave guessing who they are as an exercise for the reader.

As far a music: I was a teenager in the 90s so I grew up on alt rock and its various cousins. The first cassette I ever bought was REM Green. The Pixies, Sonic Youth, and My Bloody Valentine, were early favorites, as were many gothy staples such as the Joy Division, the Cure, Bauhaus, and Skinny Puppy. White Stripes, Beck, Tom Waits, PJ Harvey, Cat Power, The Kills, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Nirvana, Misfits, Dead Kennedys, Flipper, Velvet Underground.

I don't watch a lot of television or movies, even though I know there's a lot of good stuff out there. I just don't have the time. I did binge watch True Detective and thought that was amazing. Favorite movies include: Life is Beautiful, Pulp Fiction, City of Lost Children, City of God, Stalker (the Russian one), Waking Life ...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
● Books
● My splendid, intricate dreams
● The tiny little details of everything.
● Productive chaos
● People who are as amazing as me (I'm fortunate to have many incredible people in my life.)
● Laughter
● Ideas
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
● Funny things
● Magical things

As a young lad I had a weird crush on Sigourney Weaver in Ghostbusters. Guess I just have a thing for demonic possession.
