My self-summary
Sarcastic, tsundere, sanguine, sombre, and semi-nocturnal.

I tend to change hobbies as often as I change my underwear. Mostly because the breadth of the human experience is fascinating, but also because there's nothing quite like the feeling of warm underwear straight out of the dryer.

I've watched the man burn but would not consider myself a burner. I wear all black but dance like a hippie. Cool under fire, but twitch when I sleep.
What I’m doing with my life
I research human behavior and design things for a living. I will probably judge you based on how you peel a banana. Nothing personal. It's for a science project.
I’m really good at
Screaming internally.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm left handed. My tattoos. I have a love/hate relationship with fashion. I like to think that I dress well, but that's debatable. My wardrobe ranges from contemporary menswear to post-apocalyptic goth ninja shit. It's kind of hard to find a middle ground between these dichotomies so I tend to just go all out in either direction. I post a bunch of selfies on http://www.instagram.com/andymai if you're into that sort of thing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Fifth Element, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Gattaca, Firefly, Cosmos, Star Trek, Gattaca, Starship Troopers, Miyazaki. The Large Hadron Collider turns me on. In my fantasy world, Carl Sagan, Elon Musk, and Neil deGrasse Tyson are my gay dads. Winter is Coming. I would probably be a neckbeard if I had the capacity to grow facial hair.

I like to read books that fuck with my brain. Vonnegut never fails to impress. I just recently finished Jeff Vandermeer's Southern Reach Trilogy which I want more people to read so we can discuss theories about what the fuck is going on.

Depeche Mode, David Bowie, Booka Shade, Royksopp, Odesza, Henry Saiz, Tycho, Disclosure, Die Antwoord, The Faint, Grimes, Simian Mobile Disco, The Knife, Lo-Fang, Flume, The Weeknd, Moderat, London Grammar, The Presets, Hot Chip, Chromeo, Lorde, Chvrches, Tegan & Sara, IAMX, Hipster shit. Goth shit. Experimental shit. Occasionally trap shit.
The six things I could never do without
The internet. I'm outdoorsy in that I like to get intoxicated in scenic places, but if I'm away from the Internet too long, I'll start fading away as if my parents never hooked up when they were 21.

Shoes. Some people talk with their hands; I talk with my feet.

Whiskey. Neat.

Pepcid AC. I got my DNA profiled and it told me I have an alcohol flush reaction. Pep helps me look like a normal human being during social situations which is already hard enough as it is.

Staying up late. Wearing all black.

Sleeping in. Brunch is served at 2PM.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I shave my armpits because eww.
You should message me if
you fancy a drink or whatever social lubricant.
