I'm an intelligent, if procrastination-prone, student with a
penchant for discussing religion, politics and philosophy. I have
sort of a soft spot for puns and portmanteaus and think linguistic
humor is the best humor.
What I’m doing with my life
Studying chemistry with the aim of Pharmacy School or a PhD
program, culminating in a university teaching position with any
I’m really good at
Subtle or overt wordplay, writing and chemistry.
Being able to laugh at myself and some of the built in goofiness of
the human condition.
The first things people usually notice about me
If visual, probably my ever-present bandana. If auditory, probably
my laugh. I enjoy a good hearty laugh, and they tend to carry.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Wheel of Time, the Dark Tower series, the Stand, It,
Dune, the Foundation series, Orson Scott Card's work, American Gods

Bride, Labyrinth, Hot Fuzz, Waking Life, Pi, Tommy, the Wall,

The six things I could never do without
A good laugh every day
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Technological and political trends, chemical structures,
epistemological issues, the fermi paradox, possible
post-singularity society, the foundation of morality and where I
left my phone.
Just now: "Could a stable time loop be expanded to cover two
iterations, negating the grandfather paradox?"
On a typical Friday night I am
Either working on assignments for school or getting together with a
few close friends. During the summer months, camping with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm usually at least as amused as anyone around me by my own jokes.
You should message me if
You'd like to discuss something esoteric like the Gettier Problem,
Transhumanism or Actuarial Escape Velocity.
We have some common interest you'd like to share or you want to
know what the hell one of the obscure words I used here
You need an excuse to help you procrastinate getting to work on
that homework or essay or going to bed. ;)
