My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a time traveler, come from 1991 to tell you to cheer up. I'm a nerd with social graces and grand aspirations. I love science, board games, needlessly elaborate contraptions, wrestling with new ideas, and trying to connect the old ones in interesting ways. I want to live forever and enjoy every day of it, or die trying.

Everything in moderation, including moderation.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now, I'm split between making my current life awesome, and ensuring that 10 years from now I'll be the awesome person I imagine myself being. The former involves adventuring with my friends, playing with my cat Schrödinger, kicking ass at video games, and travelling whenever and wherever possible. (16 countries so far.) The latter means working on my startup, reading hella books, getting in shape, meditating, learning to cook/dance/play bass, and generally just developing as a human being.

As to how I pay the bills, I got a Mechanical Engineering degree from Cal which I proceeded to immediately neglect in favor of being a UX Designer for a tech firm in Point Richmond. I'm a designer, not a coder - I come up with big ideas, whittle them into shape, and pass on the blueprints.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Blending logic, empathy, and creativity to solve problems. Traveling. Separating the possible from the practical. Withholding judgment. Whistling.

I'm an INTJ (wavering on ENTJ), which means I like to think not only in ideas but in practical ideas. Why are things the way they are? How can we make them better? What are the ground-level implications of this blue-sky concept? So long story short, I like to ask questions and have entirely too little respect for authority. I've also got a knack for herding cats and building things that work.

PS: I played bass in the Playboy Jazz Festival at the Hollywood Bowl once, and all I got was a stupid T-shirt.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A well-stocked kitchen.
The google chrome dictionary extension.
Something to ponder.
Games that challenge my intellect or cunning.
Relaxing with mary jane after a long day.
Someone to talk with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether we're going to blow ourselves up or start interstellar colonization first. What I'm going to say next. How to improve the Prussian factory-worker education system we've got. What we're going to do once robots take our jerbs.

I love imagining the future. Have you ever watched an artist start drawing something, thinking that you have no idea what the heck those random lines and curves are supposed to be... then suddenly you see a face, or a dog, or whatever (s)he was *really* drawing? That's how I feel when I see all of the cool technologies we're developing today - self-driving cars, 3D printing, artificial intelligence, and more - and I try to see how they come together to create a coherent future.

In terms of philosophies, I'm transhumanist, pragmatist, feminist, liberal, atheist, socialist, utilitarianist, secular humanist, moral relativist, and naturalist.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing Settlers of Catan, seeing a movie, or quaffing dark beers at the Albatross in Berkeley.

Learning to blues dance.

I'm up for adventure, but I'm not a fan of clubbing, or other venues where I can't hear myself think.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I play Dungeons and Dragons regularly. What can I say? Being a wizard is fun.
