I'm a prototype nerd. Intelligent, curious, verpeilt.
Oh, and kinky.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm making a living on being a wizard of all things digital. I try
to change the world by looking for the right pivot point. I enjoy
myself, indulge and give in to temptation.
I’m really good at
solving complex intellectual challenges, quickly absorbing
fundamental knowledge in just about any field of science (as long
as it piques my curiosity), writing code, taking things apart and
understanding how they work, cooking, speed reading, forgetting to
open my mail.
The first things people usually notice about me
They're unsure about my gender, unless I take care to give them the
right social clues.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: the works of Umberto Eco, William Gibson, Douglas Adams,
Terry Pratchett, Neal Stephenson, Isaac Asimov, Robert A. Wilson.
There's more good authors, and I'm doing them injustice by not
remembering them right now.
Movies: The Usual Suspects, Matrix (part 1 only), The Shawshank
Redemption, Fight Club, Star Wars (the old stuff only), The
Draughtsman’s Contract, Dead Man. The works of Tarantino, Monty
Pyton, Terry Gilliam. There's more good movies, and I'm doing them
injustice by not remembering them right now.
Music: Yes, please. As long as it is good. I have a huge issue with
the hit-producing music industry and its products without soul.
Other than that, I can and do appreciate a wide range, from
medieval to modern, hand-made or electronic, jazz and klezmer.
Electronic music that makes me dance all night gets a bonus,
Food: Anything that's good and fresh. German (with a special focus
on Thuringian, that's where my mother comes from and the style of
cooking I've learned as a kid), Italian, French, Arab (especially
Lebanese), Indian, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Mexican... no fish or
The six things I could never do without
Delicious food and drinks.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lambda calculus, and the role of optimistic type inferencing in
bridging the world between fast, safe and expressive programming
Current political events and their relationship to my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hacking, reading news, maybe going to a bar.
You should message me if
you think that gender is not binary; if you're looking for good
food,good wine, an intelligent conversation and casual sex (in
arbitrary order). In fact, I love to be picked up, so go ahead and
make the first move. :)
