I am a somewhat shy, webcomic-addicted geek, who is quite fond of
math, physics, puns, and all intersections between.
I am geeky, hopeless romantic, and oblivious
What I’m doing with my life
I'm studying advanced probability theory, and mathematical modeling
and simulation. Particularly things like Game Theory, Machine
Learning, and Neural Networks.
I'm hoping to get a PhD, and teach math for a while. Then I'll do
something totally different. Meanwhile, I help run a renaissance
faire, and play a lot of video games and D&D.
I’m really good at
Obsessing over math. Systems of linear differential equations rock
Other things include: putting my foot in my mouth figuratively,
consuming thousands of pages of fantasy novels in less than a week
when they're good and I'm bored, keeping an open mind, getting
lost, talking for hours about fictional technologies or systems of
magic, intentionally taking comments obnoxiously more literally
than they were meant, and making delicious brownies.
Apparently I also give good massages. Best nervous habit ever.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my hair. I haven't really asked, but that's my guess. For
it is long and blond and obvious. Guys have started to hit on me by
seeing me from behind before, and been embarrassed when I turned
Though on special occasions, people will notice me wearing 4'
wingspan of black and purple dragon wings well before my hair
registers. Typically only about once a year though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anne Bishop's Black Jewel's Trilogy. The Dresden Files. John
Ringo's Council Wars Saga. David Farland's Runelords series.
Stephen A Donaldson's Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever.
Generally a huge pile of sci-fi/fantasy novels.
Movies: Labyrinth, Mirrormask, Princess Bride, American
Music: The Tea Party, Melissa Auf Der Maur, Type O Negative,
Stabbing Westward, Blind Guardian, and a long list of
Food: I am addicted to pizza. Mmmmm cheese. Also, chocolate chip
cookie dough ice cream. Not together certainly.
The six things I could never do without
I'll give up on my smart-alecky response about food, water, air,
etc, and say the things I would never WANT to do without, but could
if I had to.
*An internet connection with which to neurotically check webcomic
updates right after midnight every night.
*Friends, seen regularly
*Amazon.com, feeding my fantasy novel library regularly since I
first got a paycheck.
*Music. If I am at a computer and not disturbing anyone, pandora is
active in the background.
*Air conditioning, or climates which never exceed 75 degrees. I
like snow, and rain, and curling up under piles of blankets. I am
not fond of bright, sunny, humid summer weather.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever roleplaying games I'm currently involved with, the occult,
physics, politics, and video games occupy most of my thought.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends, or playing videogames alone wishing my
friends were less busy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't identify as male. I don't consider myself transgender; I
don't feel like I am or should have been a girl per se. I mostly
feel pretty androgynous much of the time. I don't consider it a
particularly big deal, but I confuse people sometimes, failing to
meet their stereotypes.
You should message me if
You should message me if you are intelligent and feel like it. And
are willing to type entirely in proper English, no "u" for "you" or
random numbers scattered in. I'm friendly, and enjoy random
Especially if you know or can make math or physics based puns,
jokes, or pick-up lines. I know they're often terrible, but I'm
kind of biased towards them.
