My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm pretty intense about my pursuit of mathematics and physics. I'm almost always studying. I've got a notion of how I'd like to be able to wield mathematics for creative purposes, and I've years ahead till I get there, but I enjoy reading and the pursuit of knowledge immensely so that's fine with me :) When I'm not studying, I make rather odd music on my computer. Before I was passionate about physics, I was even MORE passionate about cultivating a captivating and unique musical persona. I've spent years and countless hours developing a distinct style of harmonic, melodic, and rhythmic content for my personal style of music, and I value originality and forward thinking in music perhaps above all other things. Unfortunately though, I've nearly given up my interest in this arena, which is why I've switched to math. At this point, I just hope to broaden and deepen my technical abilities to enable me to create and analyze on a sweeping scope of different artistic levels. Annnnd I hope one day to be a professor (I really really enjoy teaching).

I'm pretty personable in general (though I was rather surly in the past), mostly due to a newfound desire to relate more to other people, but I can be somewhat intimidating to people due to my intensity on certain subject matter. However, you're not likely to see this side of me unless you'd like to have a philosophical discussion or debate a point of music theory, mathematics, or something of the like. Other than that, I think people enjoy themselves around me, though I s'pose I can never know for sure.

I'm pretty intense about music, and it actually got to the point that I actually don't like music anymore. I've got a lot to say about this, so maybe you should just ask me in person.

I'm pretty serious in general, but am pretty good at being friendly (at least I think so) and am interested lately in inserting myself into the headspace of whoever I'm speaking with at the moment. I have a very mild humor to me - I'm not one to deliberately try to make people laugh, but a light humor does seem to weave its way through most of my interaction with people.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Designing machine learning algorithms for a living. Working on machine learning contests and making odd music in my spare time. Learning new math or physics any spare second I have.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Teaching myself. Math, Physics, Machine Learning, Music Theory, Jazz Improvisation. Teaching these things to other people. And I might just be one of the best improvising guitarists you'll ever meet.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't be sure anymore, but I've been told many times that most people are sure I hate them from the start, though I don't know why
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books:

Godel Escher Bach! My favorite book by far. I've read a fair amount of books, but I never find fiction to be truly great. Almost all classic fiction has the same tone. I like watching an author struggle during his first sentences. The tone of an introduction is always exactly the same - I sometimes wonder where that ideal sprang from. Endings too.

I read tons of math textbooks. I really like Bishop's machine learning book, the Feynman Lectures, and pretty much anything on applied linear algebra or learning algorithms. Sometimes I like to read Physics - I've an interest in numerical modeling of meta-materials. I became a bit disillusioned with physics after I found out how feeble pen and paper analysis is compared with numerical modeling, but I still like to delve in every once in a while.

Movies:

I used to search out movies that created an atmosphere of quirk or profundity, but the style is stale to me now, and everything else is made for morons. Sometimes, I just want to see explosions.

Shows:

I don't have a TV, but I'll watch a little Colbert Report. He's my hero.

Food:

I'm a terrible cook. I can make ham and eggs. I'm probably made of ham and eggs. I can't think of a type of food that I've tried but didn't like at some point. Fast food grosses me out and I wish I could just eat raw foods all day long, but I'm so bad at preparing food that whenever I try, I end up gnawing on a ginormous broccoli sprout for 9 hours, refusing to give up.

Music:

I used to think obsessively about music every waking moment. This lasted for about 10 years. Music doesn't sound the same to me anymore and I can't enjoy it nearly as much. That being said, there are still artists I like: Debussy, Hella, Beck, old Bjork, Beatles, Deerhoof, 90's Hip Hop, Coltrane, Django Reinhardt, Stravinsky, Mary Halvorson, Kurt Rosenwinkle, Jim Black, The Bad Plus, old Squarepusher and a few of my uniquely talented friends, whom I'm sad the world will never hear.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my array of guitar related sonic production devices

my hard drive full of endless numbers of math and physics tomes

the knowledge that a few spectacular irreplaceable characters I know exist

the hope of finishing a prolific body of work which includes both musical pieces and mathematical works

liquor

women
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whatever I happen to be studying. It's endless.

The fact that no matter how much time I have during the day, there isn't enough time to address each of the things I'd like to learn.

How to fix that.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Debating about whether or not I should go out ... until it gets too late and I end up just studying.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I just barely made it here without falling asleep - it's time for bed
