My self-summary
Work in progress.

I'm a bit of a jack of all trades, I like tinkering and building things. Just left my Atlanta job and drove across the country to Portland Oregon.
As far as hobbies go I play bass guitar, video games (mostly PC), dance a bit here and there, though that usually is a symptom of alcohol exposure, and I act in random short films my friends try to complete.
I've got a seemingly haphazard way of living but I promise there's an underlying plan. Seems to churn out a lot of adventure though, and I wouldn't mind someone coming along for the ride.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a few years into my career as a mechanical engineer. I'm working at my second engineering job while going to school full time for an MBA. I plan to travel a good bit now that I have the money to do so. I also finished building my second 3D printer, and am now working on getting the first to actually work.
I want to start a band with my asian roomate who can play half a dozen instruments, then make a video, editing him in where he's playing them all at the same time. Anyone asking if they're all the same guy I'll accuse of being racist.
I’m really good at
Being a smart ass.
I can usually pick up new things pretty quickly.
I'm really good at problem solving, but that's a boring talent to put here.
I'm also good with wandering around. I enjoy driving around and getting lost to discover new stuff.

On a typical Friday night I am
Drunk.

Seriously though I'm usually out with friends most weekend nights...while drunk, responsibly though, we split a taxi.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a healthy fear of spiders...and bears.
You should message me if
You're Ellen Page.

If you're not her, and I haven't messaged you yet, you can always try to warm up to me by writing me a poem. I don't really care for poems, but it will prove you read through my profile (or just skipped to the end you cheeky little mynx). It will also show a good amount of effort, as personally I find poems fairly difficult to write.
