Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up on a farm in the Midwest and made my way out to the east
coast to continue my education at MIT. While I enjoy all Boston has
to offer, I will always appreciate the open skies and friendly
people of my home. People out here are nice, but still look at me
funny when I say 'hi' when passing on the sidewalk.
I was fortunate that my farm was high tech with gps guided
tractors, and iPhone controlled irrigation systems, (although they
just had indoor plumbing installed) so I naturally found my way
into engineering and technology. I also spent a great deal of my
time as a kid knee deep in politics; needless to say I'm pretty
well rounded. Within minutes, I can transition from "aww hell, you
shoulda seen billy get his truck stuck last weekend" to "I believe
we are living in one of the most interesting times in history with
regard to social and technological progress". That example may be a
bit extreme, but you get the point.
My childhood was spent outdoors playing with cars/trucks/tractors,
and building/fixing things and I never really grew up. Pushing
things to the limit has always been a passion of mine, so I work on
a professional Porsche racing team for fun. Aside from that, I own
an engineering/prototyping consulting company. Ive been fortunate
enough to work on a wide variety of very interesting projects;
seldom has there been a dull moment.
The devil's advocate? Yes. I have taken the other side of view
since I was six, just for the sake of debate. There are always
validities to the other party's argument (exception: some of todays
presidential candidates). Sometimes this leads to indecision, but
usually generates good ideas.
My favorite sentence is 'why?'. I like to question every answer,
and answer every question. Most times I succeed, except for those
seemingly large existential questions like what is my place in the
universe...the gears are still whirring on that one...and probably
will be for awhile!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living it for all it's worth. Not wasting one second.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making things. Fixing things. Tangible tasks, figuring things out.
Getting into/out of sticky situations.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that I am super tall. The air is 40% thinner up here.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like to listen to books while out running or doing other
activities. This also hones my senses, as I tend to cross streets
in front of cars far too often.
My musical palette is broad-spectrum; samples from desirable genres
include: lady gaga, alice in chains, massive attack, cherry poppin'
daddies, benny banassi, and clint black.
I like all types of food, which makes me quite indecisive when
posed with the question of where/what to eat.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Companion lifeforms to interact with or to eat.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life. More specifically, the ubiquitous and symbiotic relationship
that we share with the universe. That may not make any sense, but
it sounded deep!
Besides that: politics, microfluidics, economics, thermodynamics,
all of the other -ics, the global food system, energy
sustainability, and how to make the world support 10 billion people
in the next 100 years with a fixed amount of resources.
And pretty girls.
And lately, whether or not the 'scientific 7 minute workout' will
actually work out.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Rounding up some friends to play foosball at a bar.
Thinking about how much more mischief I could be up to if I weren't
in the city.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a structured procrastinator in training.
