My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
**Currently engaged with a very nice lady, but leaving this up for posterity. If you are keen on mountain biking you should send me a message.**

Exhibits wide variety of skills and talents summarized in his employment history as an airplane refueler, bicycle mechanic, ski instructor, physicist and software developer.

Competitively inclined; races sailboats and cyclocross.

Generally bearded and but well trimmed and clean.

Favorite pastime is hitting enter and letting computers do shit for him.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
By day- a mild mannered programmer.

At night- planning trans oceanic voyages.

Great times involving sailing, snow, two wheeled vehicles or computers.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Committed autodidact. Part of this is having the confidence to try repeatedly and fall flat on my face.

Recently grinding experience points on:

- free diving; cold water, thick wetsuits, snail extraction.

- rock climbing; mostly gym, definitely looking for a guide to more natural settings.

- gardening; first step is don't kill the indoor green things, next step kale.

Here are a few things that, for whatever reason, have been a fail escalator for me:

- dancing; Approached the subject with enthusiasm but ...

- card games with simultaneous turns; discombobulated is the word.

- sourdough bread; rigid adherence to the recipe has yielded edible results sporadically.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am a grand consumer of content, there are so many favorites I'm just gonna go with general themes and heuristics.

= Authors =
Edgar Rice Burroughs, Nate Silver, Orson Scott Card, Neal Stephenson, Jack London, Robert A Heinlein, John Scalzi, Cory Doctorow, George R. R. Martin, Frank Herbert, Isaac Asimov, Dan Simmons, David J. Griffiths...

= Movies =
I used the think I had a high tolerance for bad movies, but Transformers 2 made me rethink my whole metric. Nowadays I find that rotten tomatoes is pretty spot on for my tastes. I like to watch movies in the theaters. I think this is a terrible date idea.

= TV Shows =
Archer, Venture Bros, Game of Thrones, The Daily Show, The Walking Dead, Halt and Catch Fire

= Web Comics =
smbc, xkcd, abstruse goose... nuff said

= Music =
These days I really feel overloaded by the sheer amount of good music out there. I just turn on spotify and enjoy it.

= Podcasts =
Radiolab, Decode DC, More or Less, Planet Money, The New Disrupters, Freakonomics, Hello Internet, The History of Rome.

= YouTube =
(Most people dismiss youtube but seriously, check these out)

I eat all of it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My lifestyle is quite minimal. Recently I moved all of my belongings from San Francisco to Mountain View in a compact sedan in one trip. Most of the things that I use and love are completely replaceable. These are the exceptions:

* data: thankfully networking technology allows me to back this up thoroughly and easily.

* my motorcycle Incitatus (Inky for short): She's a Frankenstein mid 80's BMW R bike. A bit long in the tooth and I'd miss her dearly if something were to happen.

* a small brass statue of two bears humping... there's just something about it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Computers... well, it is my job after all. I'm primarily self taught which means that I have to second guess my methods and do my research in order to avoid looking like a n00b in front of my clever hacker friends.

Simultaneously fascinated and appalled at the world of economics. I am amazed at the audacity of their questions and the cleverness of their methods.

The calculous that my background in physics demanded seems less useful these days. On the other hand I stretch my limited statistics knowledge daily. It's amazing how, once you start solving problems in the real world, stats ends up being the most important tool for measuring how full of shit you are.

Sailing a boat from Mexico to Australia through the south pacific.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I live in a big house with lots of great housemates, I've tasted all the finest places of Castro Street, I like to get elbow deep in some coding problem and taking pretty girls out on dates.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you are generally interested in going on dates. I love the internet but I don't use OKC to chat online, I use it meet real people in real life.
