My self-summary
Due to unforseen circumstances I came here on an airplane when I was eight years old. Here used to be Taiwan, then it was several other places, Taiwan, Connecticut, Montreal, DC, New York. It's pretty all right here, more or less.

I've just returned from compulsory national service in Taiwan. It's what you have to do if you don't get into grad school. That's how it works over there. Fascists. Just kidding about the fascism. I get universal healthcare. It's like five bucks to go to the dentist.

My grandmother doesn't have to go to the dentist anymore. No teeth left. She had a stroke when she was 68, then she grew smaller and smaller and then impossibly smaller. It's been twenty years, and she is dry skin draped over brittle bones now. A wind could carry her away like a kite whose string has broken, my grandmother kite.
What I’m doing with my life
Over the past couple of years I have come to really understand two things: I am not a genius, and I fear death. Yet sometimes in my sleep I am still a mathematical prodigy. In these dreams I walk very slowly because of the twenty-odd professors hanging on my pantlegs, begging me to do research with them.

I studied theoretical computer science in school and received terrible marks because I did not realize I loved it, or maybe couldn't admit that I loved it because I was not a genius at it. Now I study it on the train between other things in life. I write a lot of stories with no endings. The people just stop talking one day and the cats wander off through blank pages.

I've been working on an idea for a movie. The work is going really slowly, like an iceberg. That's how you know it's going to be really good. All the good parts are under water, invisible to the Titanic of your judgement.
I’m really good at
Picking out books you'd like, beating children at Tetris, pretending to read in a cafe, giving you orgasms with my hands, memorizing facts about marine biology.
The first things people usually notice about me
My indefatigable spirit and lack of faith in the future of humankind.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is something we can talk about on a walk to the bagel shop, unless you're into raisin bagels. If you like raisin bagels you should watch your back.
Six things I could never do without
This section is now about

1. People who try to enter an elevator before people get out.
2. DHL Canada.
3. Mayonnaise in my sandwiches.
4. Laptop speakers.
5. The cat ate a mouse on my bed. Why. Don't do this.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Reasons for staying awake, touching, breathing, quantum gravity, P vs NP, machine learning, my regrets, the accumulation of the infinitesimal, how to write down this moment, the structure of time, structural violence, history, bureaucracy, fractals, evolutionary biology, complexity, the logistics of spending the entire day in bed.
On a typical Friday night I am
Are you?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The cat and I drink from the same glass. I don't wash my jeans all that often.
You should message me if
You are sleep deprived. You like the sea.
The two of us
