My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an abstract thinker who enjoys the spotlight as much as a long debate. I've tried sports ranging from target pistols to sailing, but my primary one is swing dancing, mostly Lindy Hop. I've written poems and websites and fanfic, and my greatest fear is going to bed at night the same person as I woke up, because that would mean that I hadn't improved or changed at all.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Doing research at MIT's Media Lab this summer. Side projects at the moment are becoming a better swing dancer, getting better at front-end development, and learning category theory.

Splitting my time between Boston, MA and Oxford, UK.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I invent worlds. Sometimes it's practical, policy focused: what would a world in which we had private tutors look like? Tutoring is a respected domain for polymaths, people who don't want to specialize in one field of knowledge.

Sometimes it's idle: what if there was a town filled with only effective altruists, people who valued each other's goals and supported each other because they knew that that was the best way to achieve their own goals.

Sometimes it's fantastical: I started off wanting to replicate a city. Then I wanted an RPG with a non-rules-light deterministic combat system (Which is completely doable given hidden information). Then I wanted a magic system where nature magic is opposed to tossing fireballs around, and mental magic is regarded as evil like it should be. Then i started thinking about the philosophical implications for Aristotelians in a world where magic does seem to respond to intent and spells seem to have purpose (which is actually generated by the subconscious, but that idea won't really be around for a while yet). Then it was back to writing constitutions for the various polities. It's an ongoing project, is what I'm saying.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Nonfiction: Foreign Affairs, New York Times, and the Economist are my news sources, Cesare Beccaria's Essay on Crime and Punishments, is far funnier than it has any right to be, and Ex Urbe and Slate Star Codex are my favorite blogs.

Fiction: I support the modern fantasy trinity: Rothfuss' The Kingkiller Chronicles, Stephenson (Anathem and Snow Crash), and Gaiman(American Gods and Good Omens). Jacques The Fatalist, for some post-modernist enlightenment-era brilliance. Max Gladstone is brilliant and very philosophical in his worldbuilding.

Fanfiction: HPMOR and The Last Ringbearer. If you don't know them, I ask that you look them up before dismissing them as mere fanfics.

Movies: Moonrise Kingdom, the Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Avengers, Black Widow 1: The Winter Soldier.

Shows: West Wing, Firefly, Black Books, Scandal.

Music: Jay Psaros, Sassafrass, Amy Kucharik, any gospel song I can Lindy to.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
H20, O2, Adenosine Triphosphate, smartass answers, my notepad, and a pencil.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Swing dancing, playing Puerto Rico or Werewolf or Contact, or writing/reading.
