My self-summary
I am the biggest dork you will ever meet. I'm also a lifelong science geek. I love discussing science and I will gladly ramble about astronomy if you let me. There may or may not be a framed picture of Buzz Aldrin at my desk.

I enjoy being out in the woods whenever I get the chance. Camping and hiking are two of my favorite ways to spend the odd summer weekend. Nothing beats getting friends together for a campfire and hard cider in the fall.

Last year I got to travel to France, England, and Germany for work and decided I really want to get out and travel more in the future. I can't wait to go back to Bordeaux!
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a test engineer for an industrial battery company. Most days I get to work with my hands or work with something new and I love that. My first major project will be going up on a satellite this November and I can't wait to see something I've worked so hard on up in orbit.

When I'm not at my desk, I like to spend my free time hiking, camping, playing RPGs or listening to music. Any other time, you'll probably find me wrapped up in a podcast or audiobook of some kind.

I just bought a house in Parkville and lately I've been spending a lot of time renovating my kitchen and unpacking.
I’m really good at
Tinkering, building things, and finding creative ways to jerry-rig anything.

I've also been working on my cooking lately. I'd love to meet some who would enjoy cooking with me (or just helping me eat afterwards).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm kind of clumsy and always bumping into things.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have music playing almost everywhere I go. A few favorites (in no particular order): Ghost, Rainbow, Judas Priest, Johnny Cash, Queen, Daft Punk, Halestorm, Flogging Molly, B. B. King, Gorillaz, Darby O'Gill, The Kelly Bell Band, Doc Watson, The Avett Brothers, David Bowie, and Royksopp.

There's never been a Michael Crichton novel I didn't devour. Lately I've been working my way through the Honor Harrington series.

Current read - In Enemy Hands (Honor Harrington Book 7)

Previous Read - Pinkerton's Great Detective: The Amazing Life and Times of James McParland

I could list TV shows for ages, but Doctor Who, Firefly, Archer, Arrested Development, Sherlock, and Battlestar Galactica sum up my tastes fairly well. I also watch documentaries on any damn topic they happen to cover.

If it's funny or a western, I'll love it. Some of my all time favorites though are Duck Soup, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, and Once Upon a Time in the West.

I'm also a big fan of podcasts, including The Bugle, Stuff You Missed In History Class, Dan Carlin's Hardcore History, and The Thrilling Adventure Hour.
Six things I could never do without
-A kitchen (I enjoy throwing ingredients together and seeing if they work)
-My Hiking boots
-A constant influx of fascinating, yet ultimately useless trivia
-My favorite travel hammock
-Friends to go out and do unappologetically nerdy things with
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The Meaning of Life. Particularly, what it would take to get Eric Idle to pop out of my fridge and start singing The Galaxy Song.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a weekly game night with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Going to a bar dressed as a pirate is a whole lot of fun. It's even better when ours is the only table with costumes.
You should message me if
-You feel more at home outside than in
-Your coat's kind of a brownish color
The two of us
