My self-summary
I like to think of myself as a simple guy, leading a simple life. I've been told, however, that I'm an eccentric and that weird things happen around me. Either way, I'm comfortable in my own skin, and I have a portrait of Admiral Ackbar on black velvet.
What I’m doing with my life
I do computery-languagey stuff for a Boston tech startup - computer science and linguistics are my chocolate and peanut butter. I do a lot of cooking, reading and watching of documentaries and stand-up to unwind.
I’m really good at
Acquiring new hobbies - a list of what I do/have done includes chainmail, cross-stitch, opera, welding, ballroom dance, fencing... it just goes on.

Making things, sometimes out of wood or metal, sometimes with a soldering iron, often out of food. I built my bed frame from scratch using schedule 40 steel pipe and safety rail fittings.
The first things people usually notice about me
My round, shiny, bald head. It is the secret to my aerodynamic frame.

The six things I could never do without
Ubiquitous internet. I no longer remember what it was like back when I didn't carry a portal to the sum repository of all human knowledge around with me in my pocket.

NPR. Getting on The Moth is on my bucket list.

Bourbon

Books books books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether to buy the things I need or just make them. Especially when making them usually requires spending twice as much money on new tools. But then I'd have the tools, so making other stuff would be less expensive, unless I have to buy more tools to do that...

So yeah, takes some thinking.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes up to some form of mischief, sometimes binging on Netflix. Depends on the week I've had, honestly.
