Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an atypical guy that grew up in the rural part of Rhode Island
likes to try to find meaning in atypical places. I'm a geek and
proud of it. I like to sail and love the power of wind and water
and interactions thereof. I like knowing things, but I know knowing
doesn't always provide true knowledge. I like living near enough to
friends but also close enough to somewhere worth exploring. I find
that a safe city with Irish pubs
can be quite enjoyable. I spent
a year in Germany
and found that learning a language to fluency can open lots of
opportunities (including fun vacation spots! :D ). I hopped over to
, and Austria
for instance and came away
with many fond memories of new friends, cultures and experiences
that I wouldn't trade for anything. I like adventuring
, and I'm into intelligent
, video games
beauty can be found through science
, and friends. I currently
work for tech support at a company in Rhode Island having to do
with medical devices (EEG, PSG, etc.) and travel all around the
U.S. installing lab systems. I find it fun. :)
Friends have called me a (sometimes) forgetful professor but I, of
course, forget why. :P And OKCupid says I am geeky, truthful, and
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living it, really. Like I say below, I'm trying to tie it together,
understand what's going on, and have fun while doing it. Job-wise,
I'm going more of a technology route and so far, I like it.
Teaching technology to people with little experience can be
difficult at times, but I find it rewarding when they finally
understand what I'm trying to teach them. :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Thinking (man, if they had a thinking decathalon, I would pwn),
technologizing, creating words... the like. I'm usually reasonable,
and I get passionate about what's true, and what can be reasoned
out. I dislike not being precise, so I try my darnedest to explain
myself as best as I can. Sometimes that's hard though. I'm an
introvert. What can I say? I can do mathematik (but really out of
practice), understand intuitively why a given system's not working,
appreciate music, see beauty... I'm a mixed bag.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My razer sharp wit? I dunno. Probably that I'm a massive goofball.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

(a) Odd Thomas
, The Ultimate Hitchhiker's
Guide to the Galaxy
by Douglas Adams
(funniest book ever
written), Calvin and Hobbes
I'm currently reading Isaac Asimov
Series, which is
resonating with me pretty well. Oh, and A Canticle for
by Walter M. Miller, Jr.
was a most thought-provoking book.
(b) Scott Pilgrim vs. The
, Battlestar Galactica
[technically a TV Series, but who's counting - and it was mostly
due to the amazing music of Bear McCreary
); I enjoyed
for what it made me think philosophically
afterwards, others I can't think of right now...
, some of
/Death Cab For Cutie
random video game music and associated remixes, Jack's Mannequin
German pop music (Silbermond
, Es ist Juli
, many others along the
, anything with chicken in it, open faced
sandwiches, provolone cheese, feta cheese, spinach, tomatoes,
basil, oh my gosh so many others.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Not in any particular order:
The sound of rain falling outside,
the way wind fills a boat's sail and propels it forward,
the way some music at the right time is just... right,
understanding the concept of what choice is,
the way things flow/fluidity,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How and why life is. Usually, I'm just trying to make sense of it
all. There really is meaning and order to everything there is, you
just have to learn to see it. Its very rewarding to make
connections oneself and to find out that oftentimes others have
thought the same, and wrote it down. I often find myself saying,
"Oh, that makes so much sense now!" Those that have come before
wrote things down for a reason. I'm just trying to understand those
reasons and where everything fits. Yup, I think a lot. Way too
much, actually. *rolls eyes* Then again, maybe others don't think
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging with friends/family, watching movies/playing video games,
reading, or sometimes out and about.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I listen to remixes of video game music... yeah, sometimes they're
pretty catchy. :P
