My self-summary
I am essentially an odd amalgamation of many things: philosophy, mathematics, cognitive science, computer science... I prefer to keep my interests diverse, as that's the way the world is, and I don't think it's in the mood to change in the near future.

Ultimately though, I put my knowledge and skills towards medical imaging research, trying to develop better and safer ways for surgeons to perform surgery, ultimately leading to patients recovering faster and stronger than before. The multidisciplinary aspect of this reflects how everything truly worth doing can require a broad outlook on life and what is in it.
What I’m doing with my life
Finished my undergraduate career (software engineering) at the University of Waterloo last year. Currently in graduate studies (biomedical engineering) at the University of Western Ontario, where I spend most of my waking hours. In the bits and pieces of free time in between, I read a lot, go hiking or biking, or just hang out with my frankly awesome friends.
I’m really good at
Wow, a section that blatantly ignores modesty...

Anyway, I would like to think I'm good at:
- Programming and software design
- Philosophy, and specifically epistemology and cognitive science, which I find intimately linked
- Thinking of ways to improve or supliment visualization and interaction in augmented medical environments
- I really don't know what else to put here...

I'm really, inordinately bad at:
- Dancing
- Drawing/painting/trying to visually represent something without the help of a camera or a computer

The six things I could never do without
1. My books (Yeah, I'm a nerd. Live with it.)
2. Pencils and paper
3. My watch and planner (I have no concept of time.)
4. Air conditioning!
5. My wheelchair (from 1926. It's awesome.) and other various antique things. (No, I am not wheelchair bound, or over 90.)
6. My computer or access to a computer in general.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A lot of fairly varied stuff. Probabilistic manifold estimation, linguistics, analytic approaches to design of programming languages (I'm planning on building one of my own, and adding it to the large pile of basically useless ones out there)

Although, I must say that I'm not an absolute nerd. I still enjoy stuff like biking and being outside, I just don't actively think about them that much...
On a typical Friday night I am
Depending on the week, I may be sleeping, playing around with some equations, or just hanging out with my awesome friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, I don't normally admit it, but... I'm GAY!

That's a lie. I am entirely out, and will tell anyone who asks. People generally just assume I'm straight, though. Yeah, I normally leave the pink feather boa at home in favour of a simple collared t-shirt and jeans.
