My self-summary
Working as a data/software consultant still searching for a niche in this city: math grad in Chicago and worked past 6 years as engineer in New York City.

Be dumb, be smart, laugh a little, dance a bit, juggle, smell the roses, it's all good; just please don't encourage the people yelling at the pool or speeding dangerously in the parking lot.
What I’m doing with my life
Filling in boxes and boxing in fillers. Appreciating the absurd with honesty where it counts.
I’m really good at
Being genuinely interested in any academic subject. Keeping time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music:
Exploring symphonies depending on my mood, and some Jazz and Indie for good measure. Bill Callahan, Beach House, Real Estate, Bear Hands, Future Islands, Grimes, Mac Marco, Tame Impala, The Oh Sees.

Movies:
Birdman, Finding Nemo, How to Train Your Dragon, Man on a Wire, Taxi Driver, The Wrestler, North by Northwest, Primer, Annie Hall, The Big Lebowski, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, This Is Spinal Tap, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Books:
Henderson the Rain King, A Prayer for Owen Meany, Breakfast of Champions, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

Food:
Love most things fancy, truly what keep me going. I don't particularly trust seafood restaurants, diners, or steakhouses - can't see the point in eating simple food out.

Shows:
I'll probably watch whatever you want to watch, as long as it's not a moody set piece with either generic scifi tropes or overly dramatized love interests. I generally prefer to dork around on the computer or read a magazine to watching TV on my own. If there was one show I was truly devastated to see cancelled it was Bored to Death.
The six things I could never do without
* Wit and sweat equity
* Two tickets to paradise
* Pre-canned pineapple chunks
* Ski gear, maybe
* A burger, medium rare
* Poetic justice
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever they pay me to, I guess. Keeping the systems running full steam ahead. If I had the power to curate the Contemporary Arts Austin, what works would I arrange for delivery? I would try to identify longer durational exposes that showed a breadth of work over an artists career.
On a typical Friday night I am
Dinner date. Would like to start going out more but prioritizing career before social life atm.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've had effective dentists, but never a sympathetic dentist.
You should message me if
You enjoy thoughtful and musical vibes. You appreciate insightful grammar. You can turn a phrase to tie a shoe and skip a beat to give a wrap.
