Ambitious nerd working toward world domination. Hardcore systems thinker.
All about the growth mindset. (Google Carol Dweck if you're unfamiliar) Attitude defines circumstance and our potential is unlimited. If that resonates then we'll get along great.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in the tech industry as a software engineer building shiny apps for iOS. If you use an iPhone, you may have interacted with an app I've built.
I started up a weight gain regimen last year. (I'm 155 right now, targeting 180) If you're into weight lifting I'm down to train together, especially if you got your deadlift technique down!
Learning everything I can about biology, neuroscience, and economics.
My secret dream is to become a champion boxer.
I’m really good at
Being on time, nice saves, and I win Olympic Gold for overthinking. And walking. Seriously, I can walk for hours.
The first things people usually notice about me
Eyes. I'm chill at first glance but can be intellectually intense with friends I know well.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Rainer Maria Rilke, Douglas Coupland, Jelaluddin Rumi, Dune by Frank Herbert, Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. The Pale King by David Foster Wallace. The Machine Stops by E.M. Forster.
Too many psych and business books.
Collateral, American Beauty, True Grit, Matchstick Men, Minority Report, Insomnia, The Italian Job, My Blueberry Nights, The Pursuit of Happyness, Secret in their Eyes (Argentina), Inception, and 2046 (Hong Kong).
Billions, Transparent, Mr. Robot, Homeland, Mad Men, House of Cards, The Mentalist, Seinfeld, and Workaholics.
Any kind of food. Except chicken.
The six things I could never do without
Family & friends, sunsets, good memories, a moleskine notebook, macadamia nuts, and philz coffee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The market and how to use it intelligently to solve social ills. How to better assess value.
What will life be like in 20, 50, 100 years. What are humanity's existential risks. Will I ever get to go to Mars. (I really want to!) I'm an optimistic believer in economic freedom and technology.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either reading or out with friends talking about a book or blog I've read.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I never had a driver's license. Ever. Taking the permit test this
month so wish me luck.
You should message me if
I'm an ENTJ / ENTP with a really strong NT. If you love talking about zany ideas or something cool you've learned recently then we'll get along great.
If you love the outdoors.
If you're ambitious and want to make something of your life.
If you believe in the growth mindset.
If you're that rare combination of a social liberal and a capitalist. (Capitalist, not corporatist. Fuck the corporations. =))
