My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My friend says he hopes to one day happen across me smoking a pipe on my porch, glass of scotch in hand, contemplating the meaning of life.

I love thinking and reflecting on people, on myself, and on ideas. I'll seek out the person in the room who has something they've been itching to talk about and then proceed to talk about it for 2 hours.

I have several separate groups of friends that you wouldn't usually otherwise find in the same room together. They are, each and every one of them, the best part about me.

I love science fiction novels, rationality blogs, science, running, game development, effective altruism, quantum mechanics, music, coffee shops, swing dancing, and burritos.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm somewhere between "entrepreneur" and "student without a school." After spending a few years writing code for the man, I'm taking a rather long sabbatical to travel the world, to try to start a business with a few other guys, and to read everything I always wanted to read back when I had deadlines.

It's going well so far. The goal is to visit as many foreign countries as I can before running out of food money and having to get a job again at Ye Olde Generic Tech Firm.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Providing insight for people with tricky problems, and bringing people of opposing opinions together for dialogue.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Coffee.
Discussion.
Burritos.
Family.
Old films.
Music.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What is true, and why it matters. I can usually be found reading authors who I believe are doing the best thinking about religion, philanthropy, philosophy, and the like.

If you take a gander on the right side of this here profile, you'll see a blandly printed "Agnosticism." This is a fairly recent innovation for me, and a big one. Up until not too long ago it would have read "Christianity," and this switch has been the most important thing to happen to me, probably in my entire life. I've been lucky to find true the saying, "If you let go of the rope you might find solid ground inches beneath your feet." Goodness, hope, livelihood, fun, and community haven't left me yet.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Seeing a small live music show, eating at some new restaurant with coworkers, hanging out with roommates, playing poker with friends, having a drink with friends, or reading in a coffee shop.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was once rejected entry into the United Kingdom and spent a night in a London detention center before getting shipped back to the U.S.

There's anything here that rings true or interesting to you. If you're also thinking deeply about something, and want somebody to help you swat ideas around. If you want to hang out in a metaphorical coffee shop, or in a real one.
