I own three Vespas and have worked in five different countries. I'm deciding currently whether overalls or fanny packs are making a comeback. Which do you prefer?
I'm a middle child who was raised Jewish at an episcopal school in Austin. Take it as you will, but we can find something eclectic to discuss for days.
What I’m doing with my life
I make thermometers for deisel reactors. They often send me weird places to install them. It's weird to be part of the energy industry. I'm oddly removed, by ensuring efficiency and not physicality working at an oil company, but I don't think I would have expected my future self. My passion is making novel things, so I'm always fiddling with ideas.
I’m really good at
Speculating about what thing do and how their made. Do not mistake this for knowledge.
Also, I thrive on group settings and talking verbally. Please semi-excuse my poor "texting game".
The first things people usually notice about me
People notice my loud voice from across rooms in the states. Otherwise they question my ethnicity.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite book is a Russian novel called WE by Zamyatin. It's a Russian dystopian where the protagonist is conflicted between being a human and an engineer.
I really want to read a book in Polish called Under the Silver Globe about a moon dystopia, but I cannot find it or speak Polish.
Anything with flashing lights tickles my fancy. I love Adventure Time, Gravity Falls, We Bare Bears, and Steven Universe as my flashing light fix.
My favorite band right now is Madison Ward and Mama Bear. Upbeat folksie indie is how I describe to what I listen.
I like the food of the region. My favorite Burmese place closed and I'm sad.
The six things I could never do without
1. Vacation, I need a change of scenery
3. Occasional quiet
4. Weekends, ahh decompression
5. The number 5
6. Group settings
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make things better. I am such an engineer.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either travelling or at a Montrose bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I told you I like children's cartoons already, and I am concerning overalls and fanny packs as fashion. I don't think I'll get much more private than that for a few days.
You should message me if
... (if) you are looking for someone with whom to people watch.
... (if) you'd like to join me in shenanigans like restaurants, travel, and concerts.
... (if) you have a special place in your heart for cartoons.
