My self-summary
I like to make people laugh and smile. I enjoy the simple honesty of life, the good, bad and ugly, and try to find the humor in it all. I try to be understanding and want someone to be understanding of me. I'm career focused and serious, but a complete absurdist. I refuse to eat salad with dressing on it or with a fork. Seriously, chopsticks or fingers... salads were not designed for forks and forks were not designed for salads. I clearly love to rant about unimportant things. I am an engineer. I make noises with synths and drum machines (hardware, not software), open-source contributor, like to build and break things for fun, do open mic comedy,love semantics, and dreaming of random ideas and projects I wish I had more time to work on.

I think personality tests can be pretty dubious, but this does describe me pretty well: INFP
What I’m doing with my life
I lived in Japan for a number of years and had an amazing experience. I had studied International Relations with a focus on Japan, so it was great to put my knowledge to use. I wish I could have stayed, but I couldn't see myself making a permanent life there. I'm back in Seattle now working in the technology industry and trying to figure out where I go from here.

I love to travel and am always planning trips. I just returned from an extended trip to Korea (and technically N. Korea as well) back in October 2014. I'm hoping to do a Hong Kong trip... I would love to own a custom tailored Hong Kong suit.
I’m really good at
Sitting patiently and having the attention span to not look at my phone.

making good code look like poetry.

I like to like to cook ... my signature dishes are runny over-easy eggs and vegetarian enchiladas.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Authors: Oe Kenzaburo, Murakami, Kerouac, Williams S Burroughs, Vonnegut, Philip K. Dick, Hunter S. Thompson, Palahniuk, William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, Robert Jordan are authors that I can recall off the top of my head that have some how been meaningful in my life.

Music: Noisy artfully produced music.
On a typical Friday night I am
There is nothing more interesting than wandering the streets of a city while being open to whatever experiences afford themselves. Interesting music, food, people, or whatever, I try to be open to whatever opportunities are available. I truly love the serene tension of a city after dark. That's not creepy, really. I just like how quiet it is, but how the city still boils over with energy.
