My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm just a guy who does stuff.

I have my ups and downs, but the main concept I keep coming back to is that life shouldn't be about a straight path to consistency. It should be about the 7,392 that make you very nervous, applied weekly, until dead.

I have waited tables all this time to support a twelve year writing habit. It has granted me much: The ability to carry lots of small things at once, uncanny knowledge of etiquette, A wine tasting habit, the odd need to call all strangers sir/miss, an astounding memory for minutia and recurrent nightmares. For the most part that is behind me now.

I attend the University of Michigan College of Computer Engineering. I'm studying autonomous robotics.

I'm fun to be around, but can be moody or distracted from time to time. I'm into the future, I believe in sustainable, cheap, localized power; vertical farms and personal automation.

All I want to do:

~build robots
~travel the world (more or less on foot)
~learn to fly a zeppelin
~learn to sail
~learn to play the Harpsichord, Cello and Sitar
~banter with witty people about nonsense
~write awesome stories and see them play out before me
~do crazy things, spontaneously with crazy people who are spontaneous.

I was a camp counselor once, it was the best job I ever had. that may be the best indication of my personality I can offer.

I'll still try anything twice.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently studying Computer Engineering, running a Live Action Role-Playing plot line, finding random things to do, working my way through every brewery in Southeast Michigan and eating dill and sea salt triscuits.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Juggling, learning new things, Ken-Ken, showing up, "phoning it in", fighting with padded swords, witty banter, math, meta-fiction, playing nonsensical games with children, public speaking, improvisation, sorting out conflicts, forgetting names, forcing myself to do terrifying things and noticing when sentences have been ended with prepositions.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Many people tell me that I am intense when they first meet me. The second, and most profound, thing people notice about me is that I don't grow any hair.

Food and Beverage: I mostly eat my own words and drink grim determination, but I also like craft beer. I drink local at home and when I travel, as a matter of culture not sustainability. I love it all but mainly I'm a Porter fan. I like wine too, mostly red and then mainly Zinfandel. I enjoy the challenge and result of pairing food and wine. I like finding new foods, love BBQ (Kansas City style is best, but all is good), Thai, and Arabic.
I'm also a sucker for bourbon.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How machines work, how social systems work, quantum physics (specifically how an observer, namely me, affects the observed), whether to use "effects" or "affects" and trying to decide what I want to do next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Exploring. Some new restaurant, bar, coffee shop, alleyway, art exhibit, concept, band, book, dance....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I still don't get it...

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have any inclination to message me. Yes, I like to date, but am not here solely for dating. We will either get along famously or not, it'll sort itself nicely.

I'll even give you an icebreaker.

If you were granted one wish, but it had to benifit exactly one other person directly, what would you wish for?

Or how about:

You are creating the constitution of your brand new government. What is the first thing on your Bill of Rights?

Or:

You gain superpowers, you get to pick them. What are they and for what will you use them?

How easy is that!
