My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Describe myself? I once got a letter saying, "Life is never boring with you. I know I can count on you in any number of dangerous situations. You are ever cheerful and one of the most eloquent men I have ever met."

I believe that just as you touch the lives of others, so too will their energy strengthen you. I'm grateful to have touched many different lives in many different places, so there're a lot of moving parts to me. I'm the sum and more of all my dear friends and family: energetic, silly, steadfastly loyal, clever, adventurous...

Large and containing multitudes, right? I'm an Egyptian raised in New England and The South; a logician who believes in magic (not fire-from-fingertips, but a sort of sparkle to things unseen and only just barely felt); an extrovert who loves both intimate evenings and adventurous afternoons; and a logo-lingui-bibliophile with a literary streak babbling away in the body of a Software Engineer. I love a good story -- love collecting them, telling them, and listening to them. Words and their meanings mean a great deal to me, and I try to cultivate words like a gardener tends his garden.

I am pleasantly optimistic, hilariously creative, and always heroic.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
By day, I'm inventing the future at a company I love by frantically trying to teach computers to dance (note: they're not really dancing. Computers are bad learners. Also, they have no feet).

Outside of work, I'm always in the middle of a bunch of personal projects. I'm learning how to play Swan Lake on the clarinet; I'm teaching myself the guitar; I've taken up boxing for fun; and I'm working on my writing -- little short stories, the occasional joke, a bawdy limerick or two. I love trying new things and I have fun with it. I think maybe surfing is next? Or fencing. Looking for a place to volunteer, too, so if you have any suggestions...

I also travel a lot. I could do (and have done!) the exotic locations, but I prefer places that are meaningful and with people that I love: Winters in Cairo, Summers in Europe, Falls in New England, and Springs in Gulf.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Words. And language. I'm really, really good with words and language. Puns (never metapun I didn't like...), storytelling, extemporaneous explanations...

I'm also great at making time. Like, literally (well, literally figuratively...) adding more hours to a day. I once managed to be the best man at two back-to-back weddings, one in Boulder and the other here in San Francisco without missing a thing. (I mean, I could have said "no" to one of them, but where's the fun in that?). I keep a time machine in my back pocket, y'see.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm told it's my energy. I'm always brimming with enthusiasm for whatever's at hand, and the enthusiasm's pretty infectious.

After that, it's probably my beard or my eyes. My eyes are bright, almost yellow, and catch the light well, especially when I'm excited (which is almost always).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Which breath is my favorite? I love reading and my tastes are eclectic, but I've a thing for Speculative Fiction.
"Dune", "One Hundred Years of Solitude", Anything by Lois McMaster Bujold or Stephen Brust, and "All the King's Men" by Robert Penn Warren.

More words words words: The King, Kubla Khan, One Art, Sea Fever, Abou Ben Adhem, Green Hills of Earth, Spring and Fall, The Greedy The People...

I don't watch as many movies as I read books, but I do have a few favorites:
"Interstate 60", "Star Wars: A New Hope", "The Princess Bride" (who doesn't like this movie?), "The Incredibles"

I trend cerebral with my music: prog/classic rock, jazz, classical, that sort of stuff. Things like:
The Mahavishnu Orchestra, Chick Corea, Miles Davis, The Foo Fighters, Dave Brubek, The Protomen, Yasunori Mitsuda, Tchaikovsky (Swan Lake!).

My all time favorite video game is Chronotrigger. There, I said it. Xenogears, too. Favorite board game? Le Havre.

Paintings:
Hands down, my two favorite paintings are Daybreak and The Persistence of Memory. I have prints of both, and I could stare at them for hours.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A good question, best answered briefly and as a poem:

Challenges, literature, stories.
A song in my head,
The banter of friends,
And the eternity of Seas.

Oh, and my favorite pen. Can't forget that.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why my spectacularly crafted code has managed to spectacularly (and craftily) fail. Performance anxiety, I'm sure.

But when I'm not glaring at proto-sentient machinery, I like to think about inventing The Future and why we're still doing things the way we are. Like, boarding airplanes, for example. (I mean, come on! There's gotta be a faster way than the zombie shuffle...). Or why exactly haven't we invented hoverboards or flying cars yet, and how exactly they'd work and would you even want one if they existed? Let's be honest: of course you would.

I think a lot about politics, economics, and society, too, and the Way the World Works. Power gradients, incentives, injustice, trust and mistrust, and their interplay in society. I've been following the Arab Spring and the Egyptian revolution closely; it's been both uplifting and terrifying by degrees. It's crazy watching history on that scale unfold.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
More recent Friday nights I've been taking Tango lessons, which are a great challenge and a lot of fun. I'll sometimes miss the classes for a good reason, though -- friends coming into town, a board game night, Karaoke, or random trips to visit people in some other city. On occasion I'll have a quiet night in with a video game or movie, too. It's good to let the batteries recharge.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't normally need much sleep, but when I want to I can fall asleep literally anywhere. I've napped on airport floors, slept through earthquakes, dreamed abovedecks during a nasty blow, and, once, snoozed upright in the shower. It was a tight stall of a room, I hadn't gotten much sleep the night before, and the water was so warm...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're looking for someone you've never found before.

And because you love life and love living in a multitudinous, multifaceted world.

Or you could message me if you're looking for someone to take you out dancing and walk you home smiling. Or maybe we go play a board game (scrabble?) instead and you come home grinning.

You might message me if you want the conventional adventure of a road trip as well as the unconventional (but still amazing) adventure of growing a relationship, building a family, setting down roots, and forming a community.

Message me if you think that the right word at the right time in the right place can change this world for the better. And if you know that word, tell it to me and let's change the world together.
