My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
** As a warning, my profile is long. So I hope you like to read. Or I recommend skipping to the end somewhere around "On a typical friday night". **

Ok, now that that is out of the way:

So about me. I went to UCSC, and studied econ and physics. Live in the East Bay, and love the area. I love to go backpacking, hiking, kayaking, and especially Scuba Diving.

I am very straight-forward, and open. With friends especially, I can be overly candid, but try to be as nice as possible in being so. (Although I will sometimes say "You don't want my answer to that"). I believe very strongly in treating everyone with respect, and honesty is the first sign of respect.

I'm very easy-going for anything that doesn't really matter (which is most things). I don't ever get stressed or angry (seriously - I've been told i can come off as una), and instead just get focused.

I can get super excited when talking about something I am passionate about. When this happens, the hands start flying around, emphasizing every word I say. If this starts to happen, I recommend taking a step back.

I have that odd combination of being very outgoing and gregarious, but naturally shy and awkward.

The OKC staff robot says I am more organized... That is only half true. My kitchen, my bathroom, my contacts, my finances - yes. My Bedroom, my desk, my car - no.

And I'm a dork, and proud of it. Dorks, Nerds, and Geeks are the best people.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, traveling to places that sound fun, studying life's awesomeness, and devoting myself to too many side projects. I work for a tech company building tricksy models, but my career path has been oddly varied, covering politics (including for Obama in '08), academic research, and commercial real estate, among other areas.

Mostly though, just following new things to learn and new places to explore.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Too many interests, but love kayaking, exploring, scuba diving, research for my portfolio, board games, and cooking(the last is a work in progress). I tend to pursue with a passion new things to learn, the key word always being 'new'.

So to what I'm especially good at: Generally - finding randomness to pursue.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A lot of people comment on that I am very jolly/friendly/gregarious, that I'm rarely not in a cheerful mood, and that I have a very genuine laugh. Genuine mind you, not masculine, so I'm not always sure if that is good or bad.

Also as I said, much talking with the hands.

And I am quite sarcastic, and have a pretty dry sense of humor (comes from watching too many British comedies growing up). Quite a few people have trouble telling the difference between when I am being completely joking or serious, so I'm often worried I'm being inadvertently rude.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
BOOKS:
The Cmplt Wrks Abrdgd by the RSC, The Elegant Universe, Good Omens, Much Ado about Nothing, Harry Potter, The (Mis)behavior of markets, Hitchiker's Guide,Game of Thrones (but I don't give a rats ass how the show differs, they're both good), The art of R programing, and I always will love Calvin and Hobbes
Currently reading: Discworld series, Fooled by Randomness, XKCD (Not a book you say? Well too bad.)

RADIO/PODCASTS
The Bugle (yes I did just add this - - - - - - - - and you're welcome).
But also a lot of NPR, especially fond of This American Life, Says You! and Wait, wait, don't tell me.

MOVIES
Favorite movie is probably "Princess Bride". That movie just makes me happy. I spent a month in junior high trying to learn the sword fight with my best friend - one mild concussion later I realized I would make a very bad dread pirate Roberts.

Also love Monty Pyton's Holy Grail, Army of Darkness, Spirited Away, The Dark Knight, Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Ratatoille], 12 Monkeys, Usual Suspects, and Up (I admit, I cried).

TV
Firefly, Arrested Development, Community, TED Talks, Daily Show, Game of Thrones, Colbert Report and especially Doctor Who (new and old). Besides the above, I am a bit embarrassingly out of it pop-culture wise, and always love new things to be introduced to.

MUSIC
I have broad tastes, and tend to enjoy stuff from most genres. Some oldies but goodies: Louis Armstrong, Sublime, Bobby Darin, Johnny Cash, Chopin, and a lot of classic rock (Especially The Rolling Stones.)

FOOD
I absolutely love SUSHI! Best food ever. Dim Sum and Tapas are fantastic as well. My predisposition is to meals where you get to try a bunch of small things. love to try new things in general though, and will try at least once any food that will most likely will not kill me.

And in the spirit of this site -
Favorite dates I've been on:

-- Picnic on a secret beach (rope ladder down cliff) north of Santa Cruz.
-- Randomly exploring around chinatown in the city, the dinner at The View.
-- Giant blanket fort and staying inside all day.
-- Driving out along the coast to watch the perseids (or the geminids later on).
-- Spending two hours making a sled run and then only less than an hour actually sledding. (up in Tahoe)
-- Going on a random hike/adventure and finding some shallow caves in the side of a cliff to climb up to.
-- Exploratorium (Ahh nerdiness).
-- Kayaking, with hot chocolate afterwards to warm back up.

Ok, that was too long.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Up and Down, Top to Bottom, Strange Charm

..... This is the appropriate time to click 'back'
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to create something interesting and new. What problems I could solve with enough data and some tricksy modeling.

How come I don't know the back of my hand as well as I am supposed to.

What I haven't tried yet that I should.

Why I am such a sucker for my dogs begging.

What would actually be productive for me to be thinking about.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out somewhere, usually trying to find something new.

I am just about the least picky person on the planet, so the "what" matters a lot less than the "how" and the "who".
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm very direct and open, so feel free to ask anything. I am nigh-impossible to offend.

To answer: I tend to always have a toothpick or gum in my mouth, otherwise I find I chew my ring finger nail, and so it is always half the length of the rest.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you're a nerd, a dork, or a geek, and you are passionately interested in something you could talk forever about.

If you want to learn/teach me how to salsa, or help me re-learn swing.

If you know of someplace interesting to go adventure to. Especially if you know kinda-sorta where it is, and have a rough idea of how to get there..... maaaybe. But you at least definitely, probably, think you know the direction.

Or if you're just generally awesome.
