It's kenners! I'm a mainstream nerd (read: I write code while watching hockey). I'm pretty goofy and I love giving over-the-top reactions.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working at a demanding and rewarding rocketship factory. Ask me
I’m really good at
Figuring out how people and stuff interact. Tech things. Having conversations on subjects I know nothing about. Pretending I'm not still sore from yesterday's workout.
The first things people usually notice about me
I talk fast, and I type fast. People also sometimes notice the magical owl perched on my shoulder, but not everybody.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV: Whatever people are talking about each season. I rewatch Sherlock and Cowboy Bebop practically once a year.
Music: A mix of electronic, hip hop, indie and alternative rock. Mutemath, Daft Punk, Ratatat, DJ Shadow, The Strokes, Chevelle. I love new music!
Books: Trying to keep a rotation of Sci-fi, Fantasy, Murder/Mystery, and Nonfiction. Last cycle was The Peripheral, Mistborn book 3, a Nero Wolfe mystery, and Come As You Are.
Online: Lots of feminist movement and gamedev articles and essays. Jessica Valenti, Jenn Frank, Leigh Alexander, Cara Ellison, Ezra Klein. I'm also subscribed to several Twitch channels.
Food: A giant fan of the sandwich in all forms, and definitely addicted to french fries.
The six things I could never do without
Cars with stereos
Supermarkets - I don't think I would last long on a farm
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How other people feel about me now, and how they will feel about me
after I do something impressive/unexpected/stupid.
On a typical Friday night I am
Following my friends/coworkers to a new beachfront restaurant (which usually ends in sober/drunken board games), or preparing for early weekend antics.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once put guacamole on food that wasn't Mexican food...
You should message me if
You know where to find the good sushi, you've gone to three supermarkets looking for the proper queso ingredients, or you can touch your nose to your finger without snorting like a pig.
