I'm a super happy, positive, odd-ball, who loves to learn. I live
my life as though everything is an experiment, tweaking this or
that to see what happens. I'm always trying to find a better, more
efficient way of doing things, or trying to satisfy my abundance of
I am extremely true to myself and tend to get along best with
people who are true to themselves as-well.
What I’m doing with my life
I worked for about 10 years before deciding to go back to school. I
am currently attending the College of Engineering at the U of A as
a Biomedical Engineering major and plan to get at least a masters.
I want to do research involving the incorporation of technology
into our own biology such as functional prosthetics, or brain
My ultimate goal is to copy or transfer an entire consciousness to
an electronic (or perhaps synthetic biological) medium. It is hard
to determine exactly what I will work on because I don't know how
far the technology will progress before I have had sufficient
enough education to provide meaningful contributions to the field.
For now I keep chugging along taking progressively more interesting
classes, and I love it!
I’m really good at
Logic, creative problem solving, random dextrous activities (I can
juggle up to 5 balls)
The first things people usually notice about me
My mustache when I have one... Maybe my height when I don’t.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Discourse on the Method of Rightly Conducting One's Reason and of Seeking Truth in the Sciences, The Dark Tower series, The Pilo Family Circus, Stiff, anything by Michael Crichton...
Music: Ween has been my favorite band since I was 11, otherwise a bit of everything.
Movies: Cannibal the musical, There Will Be Blood, The Cabin in the Woods, Troll Hunter, Moon...
Shows: Breaking Bad, True Blood, Game of Thrones, Orphan Black, Dexter, The Office, Big Bang Theory...
The six things I could never do without
The Sun, water, food, oxygen, my computer, and my multi-tool.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I don't like to limit myself to any one thing. Whatever problem I'm
currently trying to figure out a solution to, be it personal, a
friends, something for school, or something more global.
On a typical Friday night I am
I spent years working as a bartender and got kinda burnt out on the
bar scene. Usually I'm studying, reading scientific articles,
having friends over, or going over to a friend's, or every once in
a while I go out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ah ah ah, you didn't say the magic word.
You should message me if
you would rather meet at a coffee shop than at a bar.
