My self-summary
I love to wandering at night, building basically anything, I'm always up for an adventure, and I would *really* like to find some coffee along the way.

I'm ridiculously curious about everything. In particular, I want to know how the world works, but that's the big kind of impossible. In lieu, I tend to focus on that in the world which is complex -- objects, ideas, and other, from physics to people, philosophy to writing.

I read non-stop, enjoy getting into deep philosophical discussions (arguments) with the stranger I just met at the bar*, and I really, really want to hear about what you do. If you think it's awesome, I'll probably agree. Photography is my primary means of artistic expression -- I also love to dance, but haven't performed in a few years. I'd also really like to be a better writer.

* - Okay, full disclosure, I do this everywhere. I just tend to have better luck convincing random strangers to open up about philosophy at bars than anywhere else.
What I’m doing with my life
Grad student. I play with lasers, liquid helium, and single photons, mostly; my diploma will (eventually) say "Electrical Engineering" for some reason.

Otherwise, photography (flickr), working for the school newspaper, running, and reading.
I’m really good at
Most things, but almost never on the first try.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm usually spinning a pen, regardless of location or the appropriateness of accidentally flinging objects across the room. Have I mentioned that I work around lots of sensitive equipment?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Joy reading: Sci-Fi/Fantasy primarily (Neil Gaiman, Richard K. Morgan, Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, etc.) Alternatively, really ridiculously well written fiction (David Foster Wallace, Nabokov, Hunter S. Thompson), journalism/essays (DFW again, the New Yorker, the better pieces in NYMag, Slate, and so on), and memoirs. I occasionally read popular science books.

More serious reading: Philosophy (Wittgenstein and Quine currently), philosophy of science (Feyerabend, Kant, Popper, etc.), psychology textbooks, and academic papers from basically any field other than my own. I mean, I read those too, but that's hardly what this question is about.

Time for TV is sparse but I have a special place my heart for The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.

If I'm the one cooking, it's usually Italian or Mexican derived, with some kick. If you're cooking, I'll eat basically anything that wont kill me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Words, meaning, communication, and the frustration of getting what's in my head into someone else's. Context is everything, and you only build that through shared experiences with another person.

Cute animals also occupy an unduly large portion of my consciousness. Meditation: http://lolcats.mit.edu/?morecats=3
On a typical Friday night I am
Finding adventure. Interpretation left up to the night.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys

You should message me if
You like playgrounds - there's an awesome one over by the Longfellow bridge in Boston. (Note: It's kinda cold for this right now, so we might have to get coffee/drinks/alcoholic coffee drinks first)

You want to talk about books/essays/journalism/other writing/anything you've read and think is great (or terrible!)
