My self-summary
one square, no cuts refers to a subset of origami folded from a single square sheet without any cuts. as far as I know, origami started with that premise and variations in technique grew over the years to include using multiple sheets of varying sizes and proportions as well as the introduction of cuts. in that regard, I'm a bit of a purist (and maybe a little too rule bound) and still admire the ingenuity required to work around the basic restriction of one square, no cuts.
What I’m doing with my life
Architecting, dancing, cooking, drinking with a side of gaming--not all at the same time.
I’m really good at
Useless but charming things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm probably endearingly or annoyingly pedagogical. I care about detail, getting things right even if it takes more longer. I appreciate things both good and bad.

I like to learn things--which inevitably results in me spending a few hours at its subreddit, satisfying my OCD with the [potentially inconsequential] finer nuances of a topic. Then it comes full circle when I have to tell you all about it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Little Prince, The Great Gatsby, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Brave New World, Franny and Zooey, Jitterbug Perfume, The Night Circus

Amélie always cheers me up.

NPR in the morning


Sushi, ramen, burgers, (but not ramen burgers), pretty much anything brunch related like eggs, bacon, home fries.
Six things I could never do without
Barring the obvious things necessary for life, I could probably manage without most of the crap I would normally put in this box.

The six things I could do without, but would likely make my very angry or crazy:

clean place to sleep
dental hygiene--well, normal hygiene too
my iPhone
comfortable shoes
attention to detail
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Being a better person, geometry, parametric modeling, jazz, rhythm, dancing, whiskey, assorted mobile games...
On a typical Friday night I am
staying in Brooklyn...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
the unglamorous truth is that I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing on okcupid. I mean, like you, I'm hoping to connect to someone I would otherwise never run into in person (or maybe run into but never noticed because I was in a rush to go somewhere (because I'm usually running a little late) or doing something on my phone (likely playing a game) or noticed but I was too shy to say anything because I never know when it's appropriate for me to approach women I don't know.)

I also don't understand how anything on a profile is supposed to help you preference one person over another so I wind up poking around okcupid for a bit but never manage to engage anyone.
You should message me if
you don't live too far away from me and would like to meet in person, you know, like a real date.
