My self-summary
I play with dirt for a living and call it academia. I'm into music, engineering, languages, and social issues. For some reason, old people seem to love me. That's cool, because I like talking to them, too.

I love having deep conversations with strangers. I like small talk, too, but I figure if you have a limited amount of time with someone, why wouldn't you try to learn something profound about them before you lose your chance? I think I straddle the line between carefree and intense (yeah, I've read these OKC questions).

But enough about me... What about you?
What I’m doing with my life
I'm learning more than to I need to about a very specific thing in the hopes that the transferable skills will come with it.
I’m really good at
I'm pretty good at not bumping into people when I'm walking downtown. Edit: I've bumped into at least one person since writing this. Not sure where that puts me.

More seriously, asking questions.
The first things people usually notice about me
Apart from the height? I hope I come across as thoughtful, sincere and hilarious. You'll have to decide for yourself if these things are true.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I also read a lot of technical literature for school. I highly enjoy this process of asking questions and looking for answers.

Coen Brothers. Films with subtitles. Comedies with likable characters. Documentaries that show you something new. Movies with interesting plots.

Rachmaninoff. Honestly, I listen to a wide range of music, and I'm not just saying that because I'm too lazy to think of something. I grew up in a musical environment, and it's a pretty important part of my life. If I'm in the car, I'll usually try to find the most obscure channel just to expose myself to something new.

Peanut butter. I know a lot of people feel strongly about food and identify as foodies. I also enjoy trying new foods and experiencing different cultures. The whole foody culture can feel kind of elitist and superficial, though.
Six things I could never do without
1. My bike
2. Long walks
3. Puns
4. Interesting conversation
5. Whatever notebook I happen to be writing my thoughts/life in at the time
6. I'm gonna be one of those people who says family. If it helps, I do mean it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Social/environmental issues, music, math puzzles. Everything! These days, research stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
I like shows better than clubs. Museums and classical music concerts are also my jam. I don't know if this describes my typical Friday night, but if the broader question is, what do you do for fun when you have spending money, then I feel pretty comfortable with my response.
You should message me if
You like witty banter.

Or at least banter. Can't guarantee that it'll be witty, although I try.

Seriously, I like meeting new people and I don't expect anything from all this. Ultimately, I know what I'm looking for, and until then, I'm just having fun with cool people.
