My self-summary
My name is Matt. I'm a scientist. I like to solve things. I like knowing how things work. I love to sing. I'm not so big on dancing. I read Wikipedia for fun. I think working out is fun. I'll try almost anything once. I read like it's going out of style.

I am confident, ambitious, and clever
What I’m doing with my life
I own a software company in Indianapolis with 3 other guys. We help people quit wasting their time.
I’m really good at
software. I've been doing it since I was a kid and I love it. Also, debate and problem solving.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
-- Books
I love to read. I honestly can't remember the last time I wasn't reading at least one book. Some new and old favorites:

* The Time Traveler's Wife
* Life of Pi
* Kafka On The Shore
* The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay
* Foundation Series
* Dark Tower Series (well, the first 4)
* American Gods
* The Earthsea Series
* The Count of Monte Cristo.

-- Movies
I like thinking movies. Also, weird ones. I like watching characters develop. I think 2012 is hilariously, horribly brilliant. Again, some new and old favorites:

* Primer
* Donnie Darko
* The Way of the Gun
* Lost In Translation
* American Beauty
* Garden State
* Cashback
* Dark Knight
* Gladiator

-- Music
I tend to go through phases with my music, depending on the weather. Summer is fast, winter is slow. I like a lot of music, but I don't love very many bands. I'll listen to Pandora for hours in the hopes of finding a new band to love. If you're a music snob, I will confuse you by liking hip indie bands as well as 3 Doors Down.

Old favorites
* Live - Throwing Copper
* The Matthew Good Band - Beautiful Midnight
* Toad The Wet Sprocket - Coil
* Philip Glass - Solo Piano
* 3 Doors Down - The Better Life

New Favorites
* Florence + The Machine - Lungs
* The Protomen - The Protomen
* The Decemberists - The Hazards of Love
* Acroma - Orbitals
* The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus - Don't You Fake It

-- Food
I'm a big fan of both eating and cooking. I'm excellent at eating and moderately good at cooking. Favorite food types:

* Mexican (try Red Habanero on the NW side for a great burrito)
* Steak
* Sushi

I vastly prefer eating at local restaurants over chains. My favorite restaurant in Indy was El Morocco, but it seems to have closed while I was away. I guess it's time to start looking for a replacement.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Philosophy. Happiness. How to permanently fix a problem so I never have to worry about it again for as long as I live.
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging out with my friends, usually at one of our houses...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
and we're probably playing Dungeons and Dragons. Terrifying, right? I started writing a paragraph defending DnD, but let's face the facts: if that statement scared you off, there's probably no use fixing it. That's just the tip of the nerdy iceberg.
You should message me if
you can write reasonably complete sentences.
