My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Oh, who knows. I'm not very typical, but also painfully normal when it comes to your run-of-the-mill human foibles. I'm quiet, and deeply introverted, but very fond of people under the right circumstances. I'm able to open up, but often avoid it. You'll find me listening more often than talking, but if you get me on a subject that really inspires me I'll probably talk too much. I have a rich inner world, which is mainly filled with confusing abstractions that produce only fleeting shadows in language. Often, if you ask me what I'm thinking about, I will give you a look that means "I have no idea how to explain". It doesn't mean "you wouldn't understand" – it just means I literally cannot find the words. I will try though. I will always try.

I've had a lot of good fortune in my life. Even for a white male in north america, I seem to have benefitted from some further privilege that I can only attribute to random chance. This sometimes fills me existential worry or sudden guilt. I think that's appropriate when you have unearned privilege.

But mostly I just roll with it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Doing a postdoc at ubc in cognitive science, applying for faculty positions all over north america and keeping as many digits/limbs/what-have-you crossed as possible!

Hobbies include art, writing, guitar, hiking, reading, and probably some other things that I do less often...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sitting quietly, contriving terribly impractical solutions to very simple problems, being awkward when I would like to be charming, arranging furniture, ruminating.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm kind of tall and have a bunch of tattoos? I'm quiet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books! I really like books. Non-fiction is most likely something about neuroscience, math, or physics, with a smattering of politics and natural history. Fiction is mostly science fiction (favourites are Paolo Bacigalupi, Ian M Banks, Greg Egan, William Gibson, M John Harrison, K W Jetter, Alastair Reynolds, and Peter Watts), with a bit of contemporary lit (e.g., House of Leaves, Hard Boiled Wonderland and The End of the World, Infinite Jest).

Movies are ok, but often kind of boring – even with all the explosions and sexy ladies. If I'm in the mood, I can get into it – but I've found myself disappointed more often than not recently. Books seem to have a better track record. I do have a serious soft spot for Korean revenge/gangster movies, though.

I like a confusing range of music: "girlish" (to bolster a stereotype) stuff like Heather Nova, Ani, Cat Power, or Natalie Imbruglia; "who-doesn't-like-that" stuff like White Stripes, Radiohead, Strokes, or Broken Social Scene; some heavier things like Deftones or Slipknot; anarchist ska-punk like Choking Victim, Leftover Crack, or Star Fucking Hipsters; good old fashioned punk like Bad Brains, Dead Kennedys, Minor Threat, and Teen Idles (frankly not big on Black Flag – sacrilege, I know); and less easily categorized things like the Unicorns, Death Set, Elliot Smith, Death from Above 1979, Daughter, Harvey Danger, Spoon, Interpol, Modest Mouse, Sneaker Pimps...

I like kale, tamari roasted almonds, dark chocolate, mushrooms, spicy things, lentils, coffee, birch beer, and espresso patron tequilla.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sleep
Blank paper and drafting pens
Trees
My various innards
Their outards
Chapstick
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Space, things in space, how we organize things in space, and how those things influence our behaviours, thoughts, and emotions.

Membranes.

The brain.

Politico-economic systems, authority and force, propaganda.
