Hello! I'm a little out there most of the time yet I have aced job
interviews in the past by wearing a suit and acting professional.
Humor is my friend, and so is anything that gets me that feeling I
got from completing an awesome Lego project when I was little. I'm
an engineer but I don't act like one. By that I mean I am actually
very social. Conversations about anything with many points of view
generally keep my attention longer than, say, doing work in a
Also, I constantly quote movies.
What I’m doing with my life
Working as an engineer(though I often doubt I'm am really cut out
to be a professional), daydreaming about travels, playing Frisbee,
doing improv, building a website, generally finding my way in this
maze called life.
Things to do eventually:
-Sail around world EDIT: Only if I can find awesome people who want
to go with me.
-Start a company
-Run for congress
-Fly to outer space, possibly Mars EDIT: see previous edit.
-Do a lot of charity work
I hope I have enough years left to do all these things.
I’m really good at
-Riddles - stump me and I'll buy you a drink whether I like you or
-Sailing(sadly selling my boat though)
-Tetris - Oh yes obscenely good at Tetris.
Also pretty damn good at skipping rocks. Not bad at Frisbee either.
The first things people usually notice about me
This depends entirely on the situation-
A) In a bar: "This guy talked to me randomly when others did
B) On the street: "Just another dude."
C) On the water: "That guy's boat is pretty damn old and
D) At a job interview: "He's well-dressed."
E) At a party: "This guy's awesome!"
F) On the phone: "This guy sounds strangely enthusiastic about
talking to me when he can't even see me."
Also depending on where I am in my 2-haircuts/year cycle, could be
my curly hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Ender's Game, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
Movies: The Princess Bride, Wind, The Hunt for Red October
Shows: Mad Men, Mythbusters, Firefly
Music: all over the place - epic metal one day, Vivaldi the
Food: Fondue, Tomato soup with grilled cheese, lamb with mint
jelly(not so convenient since I became a vegetarian)
The six things I could never do without
1) The ocean, or at least some kind of nature
2) Good company
3) Having a large, personal whiteboard right next to my desk
4) Long showers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All kinds of things including philosophical issues (lately the
dualism/materialism debate), possible companies to start,
sailboats, global warming and how much it sucks.
Also lately I've been thinking about how history really happened.
For real. An environment like ancient Greece seems to dwell in the
same general area of my imagination as Middle Earth, but I've been
amazed to think lately that it was as real as my world is now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Don't know. Maybe at a bar, maybe playing boardgames with friends.
Watching movies? Also sometimes spend all night sitting at my
computer working on personal programming projects.
I would like to go camping!!! Want to go with me?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not sure how to answer this. It's kind of like going into a store
to buy something and having the check-out guy say, "This costs the
maximum you'd be willing to pay for it."
You should message me if
You are awesome. Or if you think I'm awesome; can always use an ego
boost. Or if you want to play boardgames, get a beer, let me show
off my boat to you, go camping or hiking, or watch the daily show.
Or go for a bike-ride. OK, you know what? If you got all the way
down here and you're still reading, just freakn' message me
