My self-summary
I once wrote a parametric equation that drew a little picture of a smiling ninja. I'd call myself a wordsmith, but that's a lie—I'm more of a tinker than a smith. I consider myself a lot of things, and may even be most of them.

I grew up in San Francisco, raised by a family I lovingly describe as "the intelligentsia." If that sentence makes you hesitate at all, it's probably not worth reading further.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a first-year Graduate student at UCSB, working on my PhD in Mad Science, although I will happily study any and all things interesting. Sooner or later I'll get a job, but probably not until after a few more years of education, amateur stand-up comedy, and playing guitar badly.
I’m really good at
Painting, comedy, scientific programming, performance storytelling, haberdashery, cooking, stage hypnosis, copy-writing, origami, pretending to be an artist, and doing special effects for low-budget horror films.

I'm very good at getting lost—anywhere, anytime—and, as a consequence of much practice, have gotten reasonably skilled at finding my way again afterwards.
The first things people usually notice about me
I tend to get a surprising number of compliments on my eyebrows.

Once I grew sideburns shaped like lightning bolts, but shaved them off when they became the only thing anyone wanted to talk to me about.

I also get comments on how I dress—I own a dozen hats and vests, and sew some of my own clothing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is a tough one—I try not to take most things too seriously, but make an exception for food. I love most kinds of food (except for the bland and boring), but if I had to pick favorites, I'd go with anything authentic and Mediterranean.

Favorite authors: Bruno Schulz, the best author nobody's ever heard of, although he's making a bit of a comeback thanks to Tree of Codes Jonathan Safran Foer's beautiful butchery Schulz's magnum opus; Neil Gaiman, the storyteller's storyteller; Sir Walter Scott, Terry Pratchett, and William Shakespeare.

I'm not a big music afficionado, but there's little I dislike. That said, most of my favorites seem to come from The 70s, leading to many of my playlists becoming a strange jumble of Simon and Garfunkel-and-the-like Folk Rock, Queen/Aerosmith, and a few of those Motown songs that you can really dance to.

The rest is a jumble
The six things I could never do without
question marks

I used to think "my computer" and "my phone" fit in this category, but it turned out that I was wrong
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Genetic engineering, astrology, 19th century art, dynamical systems modeling, jokes, dinosaurs, saving the world, subjective logic, and the sun

I once found a poem in my head and wrote the whole thing down in the time it took to brush my teeth. It was not a well-made poem, and it made very little sense
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't think I've ever cried at the end of a movie, but books are occasionally a whole other matter.

You should message me if
You have a lot to say, need help breaking onto rooftops, enjoy artisanal cheeses, occasionally pretend to be a pretentious intellectual, love humor theory, make your own clothing, speak tourist Italian, need help solving a puzzle, need someone to challenge to a puzzle, like dinosaurs, sometimes pretend to be a foreigner, wish to discuss the political minutiae of the ancient Roman senate...

...who am I kidding? Message me if you enjoy conversation but eschew the mundane, although I don't log into this site too often so it might take me a while to reply
