My self-summary
I used to do a lot of neuroscience for the better part of the last decade. This involved a lot to time poking brains with electrodes. My life then would have been well described by this script:


Now I work in the medical device industry.

My name as defined by Urban Dictionary:

A form of South African slang. Used to express joy or satisfaction at something or someone

Guy 1: Hey man, how is everything with work?
Guy 2: Everything is Luka.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently writing an inspirational book and part memoir, titled "Shark Fin Soup for the Soul."

I also find languages fascinating, especially their influence in the development of civilizations. Learning Finnish has been a dream of mine for a long time.
I’m really good at
I've been told that I can be opinionated, kind of like Walter.


This, unfortunately, doesn't translate that well on the internet (or life), but I try my best :)

I can tell what a cloth is made of just by touching it.

Also, Scrabble. Bring it.
The first things people usually notice about me
The soft, inviting presence of my beard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Thin crust pizza, mixed berry pie, rare steak, oysters, Beemster cheese, and a peaty Islay single malt hold a special place in my heart.

I also love late night coffee. Really, I love any kind of coffee and usually have 4-5 cups a day.
The six things I could never do without
Family, friends, my dog, coffee, my subscription to "Cat Fancy", Miss Vickie's Salt and Malt Vinegar chips.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
human behaviour.

people that say blowhard statements like "good for you", "is that right?", "pat yourself on the back", "how so?", "define normal", "everything happens for a reason". Or "it's for a good cause" as opposed to what? 10K for the Hitler youth?

what I should do if I'm sitting in the middle seat on a full subway car and most of the car empties, including one person next to me. Should I move to the empty seat? The person beside me might find it insulting. But if I stay where I am, s/he might wonder why I don't move one seat over and give us both more space.

when you're in line at the grocery store, should you put that plastic barrier on the conveyor belt after you put your food on it or is it up to the next person in line to place it before they put their food on the belt?
On a typical Friday night I am
I have a bucket list that I'm constantly amending, crossing things off when I achieve them and adding things when they come to me. The following is my current, but no doubt not permanent bucket list.

- Do a fire walk at a Tony Robbins seminar
- Attend a tomato festival in Italy
- Attend the ketchup festival in Idaho
- Hand forge a knife
- Learn taxidermy
- Start a cult
- Become a whistleblower
- Hug a koala bear
- Get thrown out of a casino for winning too much
- Swim with dolphins and not be attacked by them
- Complete a zumba class
- Have my hands registered as weapons
- Eat a scallop in its original shell
- Swim with a manatee
- Spearhead something metaphorically
- Eat manatee meat
- Incite the Amish to violence
- Donate my beard to Locks of Love
- Be the guest judge at a dance battle
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to watch Sex and the City.

The semicolon intimidates me; I still use it, but have no idea if I'm doing it correctly.
You should message me if
you find this bizarre misuse of logic and the English language a comedic masterpiece.

"We are evolving every year, every decade. That’s a fact, whether it is to the intensity of the sun, whether it is to, as a chiropractor, walking on cement versus anything else, whether it is running shoes or high heels."
- Gary Goodyear, Canadian Minister of Science

Also, if you agree with this Stephen Fry quote:

“It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so fucking what."
