My self-summary
One part nerdy, one part artsy, three parts curious.
What I’m doing with my life
Designing/engineering things for a pretty rad company in San Francisco.

Failing at picking usernames. Story time! When I realized my go-to username was taken while signing up for OKC, I tried out a few phrases I've always liked. One was "time flies like an arrow..." Lo and behold, timeflieslike was available, but I decided against it because it makes me sound like I'm in the midst of some sort of existential crisis. But, I was on my phone, and instead of hiding the keyboard I accidentally hit "go." Whoops. So here I am.

Obligatory laundry list of things I like:

Photography, wandering/hiking around to get a good photo. Trying new food. Sketching. Writing words no one will read. Singing to myself and alarming my dog.

Trying to gain an appreciation for cocktails. Current status: gin, cucumber, mint, sage. Mmm.
I’m really good at
Learning pointless phrases in new languages. The first thing I learned in German was courtesy of my college roommate: "I don't give a shit."

Recently a coworker taught me to introduce myself in Russian. Less exciting, though perhaps more useful?

Being an awkward penguin.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair (it's red).

Also, my dog. Oh, who am I kidding? She gets top billing. I'm the afterthought. (No, this isn't self-deprecation. She's just rather winning.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I eat pretty much anything. Food is neat.

I'm a sucker for movies with twist endings, which means I'm usually disappointed (M Night Shyamalan) but sometimes not (Fight Club!). Other favorites: Princess Bride, Hot Fuzz, Little Miss Sunshine. Also Wes Anderson movies, because sometimes I'm ok with style over substance.

Books: Snow Crash (my all-time favorite), World War Z, Wool, In The Woods, Bossypants, Surely You're Joking Mr Feynman, short stories by Neil Gaiman.

TV shows: Sherlock, 30 Rock, Breaking Bad, Castle, Firefly, Futurama. Jurassic Bark is the saddest thing of all time (note: that may be hyperbole).

Music: Ida Maria, Passion Pit, Matt & Kim, Arcade Fire, Caro Emerald, Alabama Shakes, OK Go, Phantogram, Tennis, Neutral Milk Hotel, cheesy 80s music.
The six things I could never do without
My camera, ebooks, Rdio subscription, my dog, walking to work. Wow, this section is boring. Hold on, I'll try to think of something more scintillating.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sometimes when my mind wanders I imagine disaster scenarios and what kind of heroic actions I might take. But judging by my performance in paintball and laser tag excursions, I'd probably be the first to go in [disaster scenario du jour]. (Confession: this used to say zombie apocalypse, but I've been given to understand that's cliche and tiresome and other unfortunate adjectives.)

(I'm starting to realize this section makes me sound more athletic than I am. You guys. The aforementioned paintball and laser tag was company-sponsored. My depth perception is crap, and I'm not joking around about being the first to die in a zombie-related public health incident.)

Also: if I find someone I like on OKCupid, why would I want to buy them an A-List subscription? Wouldn't that run counter to my own interests?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
So, here's a secret way to read my mind: I often start humming songs based on what I'm thinking about at the moment. Example: I was walking around during Pride weekend thinking "I love this city", which somehow translated to "We Built This City" (on rock and roll) in my head.

... I didn't guarantee that it would make a lot of sense, or necessarily involve *good* music, but there you go.
