My self-summary
I'm fairly active and regularly play tennis and bike. I'm an avid biker and am always trying to find new routes to explore the city's nooks and crannys. Recently I've been doing the central park loop from Brooklyn. While I wouldn't consider myself a gamer I have recently found League of Legends quite addicting.

I also play guitar and am learning tango. Why guitar? Because when I was 5 years old I did the most rock thing and smashed my guitar. It was ten years before I got my hands on another, but when I finally did I found it to be one of the most rewarding ways of expressing myself. I have a broad eclectic taste in the music I listen to and play, but do listen to a lot of progressive metal for the way the guitar's range as an instrument is really shown off. Tango? Well, I did a play in high school where I needed to know the dance. I would watch couples in the park for inspiration and realized I wanted to dance like that with someone.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently working on a degree in physics with plans to go into research and technology development in the area of optics.
I’m really good at
Walking too fast and making french toast.
The first things people usually notice about me
The moustache without a doubt. Not that it's noteworthy or anything, but it's on my face...so yeah people might notice it.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How mankind will avoid a Malthusian catastrophe; How far off the singularity is; why gravity is the weakest of the fundamental forces.
On a typical Friday night I am
Thanks to meetup.com, my Friday nights are now typically spent in a cultural exchange group fulfilling my desire to learn Japanese. If I'm not here, I may be playing tennis or re-watching episodes of Star Trek TNG.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have an inexplicable phobia of mold. Yes, I know it's irrational but there are arguably worse irrational fears...I might have been phobic towards caterpillars. INTJ
