I'm a native St. Louisan, and just a bit of a geek (probably an
understatement). I tend to dive in to any new interest head first,
which lately has led to me running a lot more. Not very fast, mind
you, but more at least.
Oh, and because a surprising amount of people find the
Meyers-Briggs test interesting, I'm IN(T/F)J. Apparently my score
in the Thinking/Feeling section is so close as to be meaningless.
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a software developer, and still marveling how I'm not constantly broke like I was in school.
I’m really good at
Finding ways to work smarter, not harder. Of course, I spend more
time on finding those ways than the work would usually take in the
first place, but it'll save time in the end, I swear.
Also, finding new hobbies. If something sounds remotely
interesting, I'll typically invest more time in it than is strictly
The first things people usually notice about me
Polling says my smile apparently, as cliche as that is. Shortly
followed by the fact that I could probably stand to eat more.

I'll eat just about anything, though. There's not much out there
that I don't like.
The six things I could never do without
My computer/The Internet
Caffeine - I drink far too much tea. Coffee, too, but mostly
Music - I almost always have Spotify playing in the background,
either on my computer or my phone. My tastes are broad enough,
though, that I'll listen to anything.
Books - I read far, far too much, especially since I discovered I
can read on my phone instead of the dead tree edition. The only
trick is finding enough books to actually sate my appetite (which
is pretty much impossible anyway).
Dog/Cats - I love animals. I grew up with at least two dogs in the
house, and would probably have cats if my landlord allowed pets.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends. That, or catching up on work I was
supposed to have finished earlier in the week. These days, the
latter more often than the former.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I seem to have the annoying habit of accruing horrifying nicknames.
Or maybe I'm just hanging out with the wrong (right?) people.
You should message me if
You actually read any of my profile. If you're
extremely conservative, a fundamentalist Christian, and think that
the moon is larger than the Sun, you probably didn't think this
through. A surprisingly small amount of people seem to read this
Otherwise, go for it. I'll almost certainly message you back.
