My self-summary
I believe in chivalry and equality and that the world is decidedly lacking in random acts of kindness. I’m fiercely loyal and will drop anything for a friend (or a stranger) who needs help.

I’m ambitious, spontaneous, intelligent, realistic, idealistic, shy, outgoing, and quirky. I travel to strange and exotic places. The best things in life are shared; I’m looking for my partner-in-crime, a travel companion, and my best friend.

I enjoy skiing, camping, rock climbing, and volleyball. I've recently become interested in Japanese language and culture. I'm an engineer at heart, an astrophysicist by education, a food-experimentalist on weekends, and a pilot during my lunch breaks.

I have an undergraduate and a Master's degree from Princeton, and now I kind of have a an unhealthy affection for Gothic architecture. I like the X-Men cartoon from the 80's, and I firmly believe that guacamole and Bar-B-Q sauce make almost any food better. I’m Canadian and proud of it. I’ll listen to the same song a dozen times in a row without getting bored.

I collect spoons but can’t remember when I started or why, and now I need to think up a new answer to "The most private thing I’m willing to admit." I prefer large paintings. I tie my shoelaces in the elevator and I like buying office supplies. I’m really bad at doing nothing. I miss liking walking in the rain, and I live for fierce conversations. I want a Siberian husky as a pet. My favorite opera is Turandot, and my favorite musicals are Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera.
What I’m doing with my life
Private equity. You can ask me what that means, but, to be honest, I'm still trying to figure that out myself. Let's just say that I know more about milk, gasoline pumps, onion futures (and the legally-mandated lack thereof), tire rubber, rural Iowa, and wooden pallets than my six-year-old self thought I ever might.
I’m really good at
Super Smash Bros. for the N64.

If that's not romantic enough, I've been skiing since I was close to the ground and fearless, and I'm great at convincing myself that I'm good at karaoke. I also make a mean mango chicken.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmm. Probably a toss-up between the crossbow and the pet velociraptor. Coincidentally, it's also the *last* thing many people notice about me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Escapist, epic, funny, pop, and Asian, respectively.
The six things I could never do without
• Problems around the house that can be solved using MacGuyver-style techniques
• The Cheesecake Factory's avocado egg-rolls
• No, seriously, The Cheesecake Factory's avocado egg-rolls
• Clever representations of data (e.g., xkcd and all the things you can't do in Excel)
• My goal to be inducted in the Traveler's Century Club (upcoming: #56, the Azores)
• Friends and family (even though this list isn't too serious, I'm pretty sure my mom would secretly be a bit hurt if I left them off. It's not like I expect my parents would ever *see* my OKC profile, but... they'd know)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
that time I decided to check out the profiles of the people who ranked as my highest % "enemies" on OKC. I found someone with 93 out of 95 shared questions as unacceptable answers one way or the other. And more than one person who found it unacceptable that I "generally smile at little kids who cross [my] path."
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a lingering childhood fear of spiders. And drowning. I don't know what I'd do if I saw a drowning spider.
You should message me if
You're an exceptional person who will challenge me emotionally, intellectually, and physically. Someone who might go skydiving on a whim and learn a new language for fun (probably not at the same time). I'm looking for a girl I can talk to for hours on end, regardless of the subject. Someone to share my passions, who will introduce me to theirs, and with whom the perfect evening might even involve doing nothing at all.
