My self-summary
I've got an inquisitive nature and spend most of my time asking "why?" or "how?". I don't stop there though, I'm a builder, a tinker-er, and inventor. Recently I bought a house so I spend a lot of time planning out remodeling plans and working on it little by little. I use my free time to work on side projects for myself and others, most of which involve computer programming and using a soldering iron. When I need to unwind and relax my go to pastime is running, especially trail running and longer distances. In order to support myself through life I have a job as a research engineer which is quite a good fit. I sometimes get to travel for work and have had some unique and amazing experiences through it.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to make the most of it. I do my work and try to have fun while doing it. Meanwhile I try to make the world a little better then when I found it.
I’m really good at
Not sleeping in. I like making the most out of each day and I see sleeping in as a road block between me and experiencing the world around me. Other highlights include making a mean cup of coffee which tends to help me with getting my day started.
The first things people usually notice about me
People have told me it's my smile which I guess makes sense since in 8th grade I was voted best smile. Other things that you may notice is that I can be a little shy at first, but I am also known to have bursts of extroversion. It just depends on the phase of the moon i guess.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Bible, The Great Gatsby, Mere Christianity, Harry Potter, A Prayer for Owen Meany, The Chronicles of Narnia

The list goes way beyond this, and I'm usually up for watching anything at least once.
Big Fish, and other Tim Burton flicks, Back To The Future, Sweeney Todd, LOtR

I don't watch very often, but when I do I choose:
HIMYM, Big Bang Theory, Doctor Who, Dexter, Breaking Bad

I'm not usually into rap but just about everything else if fair game.
Mumford and Sons, Relient K, Trampled by Turtles, Coldplay, Daft Punk and so much more, many of which are obscure

You mean I have to choose?! I love trying new foods and experiencing new cuisine.
Spaghetti, lasagna, fettucini, basically anything Italian shoots up to the top of my list. On the obscure side is okonomiyaki, think Japanese pancake pizza thing. Indian food is also really good too. Oh, and let's not forget about brinner.
Six things I could never do without
A notebook and pen
Coffee in the morning
An internet connection and Wikipedia
Running shoes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Solving the world's problems. I want to leave a prints on this world in a positive way. There are a lot of impoverished people in the world and I like a challenge. Problems are only solutions that haven't been found yet.
On a typical Friday night I am
Grabbing a drink at a bar with friends after sipping some coffee. Other Fridays you may not be able to find me because I might be up North somewhere camping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nice try, you'll have to ask me in person to find out.
You should message me if
Anything caught your eye
The two of us
