I am probably a bit different than anyone you'll meet. I enjoy karaoke, coffee, and have been to known to engage in writing screenplays and stageplays. I like all kinds of foods, music, movies, and other types of entertainment. I am particularly interested in ancient Assyrian counterculture poets, trade policy between the Russian and Aztec empires, and the impact of Minoan sculpture on Imperial Japanese militarism. If you can hold a conversation about these topics, I would love to meet you. If you can't, then maybe we can still meet but we'll be missing out some serious nonsense.
I'm also a bit of an scientific renegade. I currently am trying to subsidize myself doing custom plastic and electronic work to pursue my desire to do R&D in science and mathematics which at the moment is focused on cheap and practical biomedical instrumentation. I refuse to teach or work in a corporate or academic environment. This gives me the freedom to evade budgetary, ethical, or other types of constraint. I find those environments highly corrupt and in a sort of creative straightjacket. It makes me poor but it also makes me resourceful and innovative. I also get kind of a high off of being able to build stuff that retails for thousands even tens and hundreds of thousands for next to nothing.
If you want details (nerd alert), it comes down to applying advanced mathematics to analog and signal processing circuits to create cheap and highly accurate instrumentation. In other words, corporate and academic environments, and these young engineers and scientists are overreliant on digital processing power to waste their time using old school analog circuitry and mathematics. If you're into this stuff or need an electric guitar amp, pedal, or custom car electronics, let me know. My current projects are a bluetooth enabled electrocardiagram that communicates with a car to use the music on the radio to modulate heart rate variability and a massively parallel computer using 100 <$5 microcontrollers to control and evaluate >10,000 cheap (< 1 cent) sensors to achieve the same precision as laboratory instruments costing 100-10000 times as much.
Besides all of that stuff, I'd like to think I'm usually humorous, provocative, and nonsensical. I'm a bit of a nihilist so no matter my own beliefs or self-appointed role as the defender of the faith in science, I still think it's all ridiculous. I've been a graduate mathematics student, a bouncer, an outcast, captain of academic quiz team, and a consistent iconoclast.
After all of that, it really comes down to two things. Can you enjoy a good meal with me and appreciate good movies? While it's a horrible first date, I think it's essential for anything long term. If you can see us eating at an Uzbek, Peruvian, Middle Eastern, or whatever country's cuisine I haven't tasted yet's restaurant followed by watching a movie by Kurosawa, Scorsese, Kubrick, or other autuer, it'll be a good time for me. I love books as well!
