I'll admit that I'm a little weird (INTJ if you read into any of that). I have a shirt that says "Programmer - an organism that converts caffeine and pizza into software." In summary, I'm horrible at making a good first impression.

I'm usually quiet in unfamiliar settings, but I'm very sincere once you get me talking. I like to be around equally sincere and intelligent people who aren't afraid to challenge me. I believe that I'm pretty laid back, but my friends tell me that I'm driven, diligent, or that I have a strong personality... So, iono.

I'm here to meet women, but I'm ultimately looking for one who actually enjoys hanging out with me and wants to move forward into a relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a career academic, hoping to complete a PhD in math and become a professor. My particular interests are in cryptography and cybersecurity. I wear a lot of hats at NIU and I'm glad to see the work I do have an impact.

For now, I'm kicking back to enjoy the summer semester. I just adopted a puppy, which is something I've been wanting to do for a while. Fuck yeah! Next on my todo list is to start exercising again. Otherwise, I have a few side projects to research.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'd say I'm good at noticing nuances of language, catching errors (sometimes saving your ass), solving problems, and pointing out obscure facts.

I'm also very good at programming and teaching it. I come up with a lot of interesting analogies and examples and try to give exposure to material that's ahead to pique interest. Both students and colleagues seem to love my deadpan and witty sense of humor in explaining concepts too. Just don't get me started on how to use "this."

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
freedom of speech
bullshit meter
jeans and tshirts... I'm a geek with simple needs of course
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how to express my ideas.
answers to silly questions like this or "how's it going?"
the geography of fictional universes.
how to improve processes, either organizational or computer.
another home repair.
the hypothesis that you can tell the political leanings of people by how much they follow your gaze during conversation.
if I were ever in a Milgram experiment, I'd probably shock the test subject with the highest voltage right away just to screw with the experimenter.
how related theoretical computer science is to group theory... not that you're another math major who's as curious about the same things.
Unless,... are you pondering what I'm pondering?

Stuff I want to learn (more) about:
Jewish culture
1950's history
scrap metal reprocessing
drink mixing
3D printing
human anatomy
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
indulging in pizza and spreadsheets,... sadly. Otherwise, I'm occasionally at the bar or at the movies with friends.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you arrive precisely when you mean to, you have your own quirky little passions and feel comfortable with who you are, you can get as excited as me when listening to Taylor Mali, you can pass a turing test, and you like to get a little buzzed and have long conversations.

Also, you must like dogs.
