Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have an insatiable thirst for knowledge. I like learning
everything about everything. Pick a topic, and I want to learn
about it. Right now, things I am learning about include such topics
as, diesel engine repair, elementary particle physics, and short
I strive to be minimalistic in life. I have what I need for my
life, my hobbies, and nothing extraneous. Unfortunately my hobbies
tend to have a lot of physical and metaphorical moving parts.
I guess I'm more type A than I'd like to admit, responsible,
hardworking (when motivated), determined, witty, reserved, and a
fixer, I gather that's the engineer blood in me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
It's been a long journey to get to where I am today, and where I
want to be. I was born in a third world country to a father in the
forestry service, and my mother in the peace corps. As an infant,
my family moved to New York and I did the normal kid things, played
with legos, built radios, model rockets, traveled all over the
place with my parents, and went sailing with my grandpa.
In high school I wanted to be a video game developer. As I took my
required mathematics requirement. I became increasingly curious
about the world in which we reside. I wanted to know and learn
everything. I took all the math classes my college offered. I
wanted more, and went on to learn newtonian physics, e&m,
modern physics, quantum mechanics. The more I learned the more I
realized there was no way to know everything, and the less I really
Months out of college my best friend said, hey my company is
hiring, you want a job. Sure! So now I am currently a software
engineer, work in Northern Virginia, (for a company you use every
My interests have mostly been the same as what I've grown up with.
Instead of going out with grandpa on the boat, I go sailing with
the club, and do yacht racing during the summer. Instead of legos I
build my jeep and restore my landrover defender. Instead of playing
in the sandbox, I go offroading, camping, hiking, mountain biking,
and running. I still travel, I still play with radios.
Where I'd like to be is doing more of the same, sailing all over
the world. learning more math, and physics, figuring out the world
in which we live.
I'm looking forward to sailing in the DelMarVa rally down the
Chesapeake bay and up the Atlantic coast in June.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
mathematics, physics, sailing, hiking, traveling, programming,
cars, cooking, baking, skiing, off-roading, board games...
seriously if you love playing board games, don't bother reading the
rest of this profile and just message me.
I'm really bad at:
I used to competitvely ski slalom and giant slalom, but I'm
absolutely terrible at snowboarding (teach me!), finding my
latitude and longitude with a sextant and a pocket watch.
