My self-summary
So I've been doing this revolutionary new thing where I go outside and meet people in person. It's working pretty well for me, so I think I'm going to stick with it. I'm leaving my profile here because I'll probably want it again when the weather turns cold and drives us all inside.
Minnesota farm boy who moved to Boston to git me some book-learnin'. Okay, actually, I've pretty much always been into books.

I'm an Iraq vet, but I'm not Republican. I go to Harvard but my family isn't rich. I work in IT but I have good hygiene and social skills.

I've lived and traveled internationally - mostly Europe and north Africa - and I intend to keep it up. (Update: I'm going back to Morocco in April! Yay!) The company I'm working with now has offices all over the world and I want to transfer overseas after I graduate.

In a relationship I am sincere (as opposed to sarcastic / snarky -- that works for some people, but not me), emotionally open, and committed. I don't jump into things quickly, but when I do decide to get involved with someone I will move heaven and Earth to make it work. (I used to have something about the US Immigration Office in there but then I got a million messages from people in third world countries. It was a joking reference to the shenanigans I had to put up with while dating a Swedish national -- NOT an offer.)
What I’m doing with my life
I work full time, take classes at night and practice the violin when I have time. I have semi-retired from fixing helicopters, but I miss it enough to consider going back to it. Unfortunately that would mean going back to the military, and that's sort of like returning to an abusive but wealthy spouse. I know Uncle Sam will only hurt me again, but he has SUCH cool toys for me to play with!

I'm also learning Swedish and I occasionally brew beer in my kitchen. Oh, and getting back to the gym now that my back is recovered from the injury I sustained in Iraq.
I’m really good at
Listening sympathetically, the English language, and learning things about computers or aircraft. (I am a huge aviation geek.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I often hear that I have kind eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Almost anything by Neal Stephenson. Roger Zelazny. Chicken tikka masala, or anything Moroccan. (I lived in Morocco for two years.)

My tastes are generally pretty eclectic, to be honest - especially in music. But I absolutely adore Dvorak's Romance in F Minor and Chopin's Opus 9, particularly the first nocturne.
The six things I could never do without
Books (technical manuals - see the next paragraph; Game of Thrones; several of Zelazny's short stories; Weaveworld by Clive Barker) and music (Tom Waits; Decemberists, Devotchka, and DMB because apparently I like bands whose names start with "D"; Pink Floyd; all sorts of classical; Guster) are the first things that pop into my head. The last four (yes, they're sharing last place) are going to take a minute...

For #2 I'm going to have to go with "a computer". Yeah, I'm a geek. What can I say? I've been programming since I was in second grade. It's just part of my identity now. I can amuse myself for hours with nothing but a text editor and a compiler.

Conversation partners. I don't just mean "friends" generically; I mean people with whom I can have long, engaging discussions on any of several topics.

That's four. It'll have to do for now.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How well I would do, given my knowledge and skillset, if I were randomly transported to a different time in history. (The ability to communicate comes free with the thought experiment, but cultural sensitivity does not.)

I've decided that showing up right around the time of the Chicago World's Fair would be optimal.
On a typical Friday night I am
Honestly, I'm kind of a homebody. I do go out with my friends occasionally, but going out drinking every weekend is getting old. I'm starting some new projects that will keep me busy and I practice the violin a lot.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an ex-Mormon, and I am so much happier now that I got out of that religion. It's still a pretty big part of who I am though. I guess it's hard to be raised in an oppressive cultish religion without it having an impact. Go figure.
