My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
An engineer/scientist with an artistic bent.

I am very liberal in my ideals, but guilty about my lack of activism outside of social media. This may eventually forge yet another bend in my fluid life plan.

I like meeting new people, I feel that through interacting with other people we bring out the best in ourselves, and discover new interests and hobbies. While at the same time I can be pretty bad at the ice-breaking small talk, and this aloofness can be mistaken for being dull or square.

Not only am I open to new experiences, I'm also willing to embrace them and fold them into my life before they become socially normal. Hence eccentricities like my toed shoes and soylent. Light biohacking I guess.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Came out to California from the east coast for a PhD, left the program with a masters, and now I'm working as an analyst at a tech company, but that's just my day job; my passions lie elsewhere

Three-quarters seriously trying to put together a startup around VR, not sure I've found the right hook yet, but I enjoy the tinkering process.

Starting to get sick of the whole Silicon Valley thing though, contemplating a move elsewhere (North Bay, Boulder, Portland, San Diego, NYC etc) in a year or two. Maybe to start a PhD in something like CogSci.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Figuring things out based on direct feedback, which in practice translates into an eclectic set of talents and abilities.

Empathizing.

Going with the flow, without being a pushover.

Yoga. Not instructor level good, but I can do some decent party tricks.

Trivia, I make a great bar trivia teammate, although I prefer Jeopardy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes, my awkwardness, my facade? I'm really not sure, this is my least favorite question.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I probably should trim these lists down.

Books: Nausea, Notes From Underground, The Stranger, Snow Crash, Catch-22, Dune, Stranger in a Strange Land

Shows: Transparent, The Leftovers, Brooklyn 99, Key and Peele, Orange is the New Black and Vampire Diaries (seriously, the plotting is amazing)

Movies: Brick, The Dark Knight, The Big Lebowski, Dr. Strangelove, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Ghostbusters, Goodfellas, In the Loop, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Pretty much all of the Marvel Studio films, especially Guardians of the Galaxy.

Music: Alt-J, New Pornographers, Arcade Fire, Fleet Foxes, Fountains Of Wayne, Radiohead, Spoon
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Caffeine, and other drugs
Reading
Soylent
Stimulating Conversation
Yoga
Zen
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future, both on a societal level and personal, and how to improve the probability of positive outcomes for both.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I stay in more than I would like to admit, which means catching up on my dvr, sometimes with the aid of my volcano vaporizer. But I also do the usual bar, club, concert, house party, etc when it comes up.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My life dream is to have a research group/clinic that studies a bunch of pet topics of interest (cannabis, meditation, lucid dreaming, floatation tanks, Virtual Reality) and how they can be used to treat or manage various mental afflictions (anxiety, phobias, depression, bi-polar).

Not sure how to fund that though, maybe by jointly running a cafe, arcade, or yoga studio.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to have an engaging, potentially wildly tangential conversation over coffee about politics, technology, linguistics, drugs, pop culture etc.

I find that's a decent starting point, although I'm open to most anything if we seem to be clicking.
