My self-summary
Nerd. Dog lover. Human liker. Reader. Techie. Trekie...

Idk you tell me.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm chasing down my next adventure. After finishing up degrees at Bard and Columbia, I kinda feel like the coyote chasing the road runner - the cliff just ended under my feet but I am still running. What am I chasing? You'll just have to ask if you wanna find out.

Don't worry, I still know how to relax. I can binge on netflix, oversleep, and eat too much chocolate like the rest of 'em
I’m really good at
getting really intensely into new things and devouring everything there is to know about them. Right now I'm pretty damn focused on computer programming - it's only in the last hundred years that humans have begun to articulate, in a very precise way, procedure and process. We've spent thousands of years producing "what" knowledge, now we are finally starting to write down "how." (nerd alert)
The first things people usually notice about me
I can be really shy or really goofy - depends on the moment and the person.

The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Work hard, play hard. If it's not technology that I'm obsessing over then it's running, hiking, swimming, exploring that comes to mind,

With technology I spend time thinking about how it is helping / hurting people. How to make a meaningful impact with current tech? What problems can be solved with tech? And all the things in between.

When I'm out playing, then hopefully I'm like a dog, just enjoying the moment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Upstate chilling or out on the city drinking or just playing it low-key
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've listened to Closer by Tegan and Sara over a hundred times.
You should message me if
You wanna nerd of with me about anything at all - passion is all that matters. If you wanna go for a day hike some weekend. If you wanna show me an awesome coffee shop. If you want a partner in crime...

Oh right and if you haven't read a book in the last six months please look else where.
