My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The biggest influences on my diction are Homestar Runner and Wizard People, Dear Reader. I am always looking for new people to play Scrabble with.

I recently moved to back to Ithaca to pursue a robotics PhD. I'm still a Hollywood boy at heart. I like being around clever people with interesting stories!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Studying, studying, studying. I still can't decide what I want to do with my degree, but becoming a professor at a research institution sounds better and better every day. Or something that lets me travel around.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Trying new things! Linguistics, math and science, traveling the world, Scrabble, watching movies.

I'm good at going out with people I know well. I'm trying to get better at the whole socializing-with-new-folks thing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If we're in my apartment, you'll probably notice my 3D printer right away. Otherwise...I try to tell insignificant but amusing stories. Like how an accident in Nicolae Ceausescu's secret bear-hunting grounds led to reported monster sightings all over Romania! That's a good icebreaker story.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
BOOKS: White Noise, Last Chance to See, A Confederacy of Dunces, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Ask the Dust, The Geometry of Pasta, Signals and Systems by Oppenheim/Willsky/Nawab. My favorite Shakespeare play is Love's Labour's Lost.

MOVIES: Bin-Jip, The White Diamond, Do The Right Thing, Brick, The Big Lebowski, The Blues Brothers, Fargo, Dr. Strangelove, Apocalypse Now Redux, Fitzcarraldo, Tampopo, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, True Romance, Inland Empire, Mulholland Drive, Fast Cheap and Out of Control, Grosse Pointe Blank...

SHOWS: The Thick of It, QI, Food Jammers, Twin Peaks

MUSIC: New wave, indie rock, classic rock, alternative, some metal. My all-time favorite artists are: The Deadly Syndrome, Sparks, Steely Dan, David Bowie, The Hold Steady, and Wall of Voodoo.

FOOD: This is super-important to me. I grew up exposed to a ton of extremely diverse cuisines, and I try to continue expanding my culinary horizons. I've eaten live octopus twice--sorry, cephalopod-lovers and Oldboy-haters! Also, I love fancy cakes, especially baumkuchen and kürtőskalács (hence the username).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My laptop. I've forgotten what it's like to not be doing research or working on an electronics design project.
2. People to talk to! Sometimes I get lonely. Okay, a lot of the time I get lonely.
3. Caffeine. Is that a contrived answer? It sounds a little contrived. Oh well.
4. Movies. I've cut back, now I'm only watching 2-3 films a week.
5. Things to do. If I don't have a personal project or a grad school assignment handy, I kind of fall apart.
6. My 3D Printer, Melissa. She has a few battle scars but has shown me nothing but dedicated service over the years.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Math, robots, puzzles, cinema, language. I like coming up with and laying out projects to do, even though I'm always working on one from much much earlier.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
probably studying. But maybe going out!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I'm extremely nervous about a deadline or a meeting or something, I'll dress up way nicer than usual and paint my nails.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over. think you and I could make some good, interesting conversation!

OR if you want to go see The Room with me.

OR if you're willing to throw down and play Scrabble (with trash talk, of course)
