Actually I'm a fairly normal, considerate guy.
My life is largely defined by 3 Rules:
1. Don't be an asshole.
2. Suck Less.
3. Do Better.
I'm a graduate student and in my dissertation phase. To say I am focused on that would be an understatement, it is the thing that I must allow consume my life so that I can get the fabled PhD tagged to my name. I am also a fully committed lifelong learner, I read copious volumes of non-fiction for fun.
I'm a writer. As with the dissertation thing right now that is mostly academic and theory writing. I'm trying to actively write things that don't just go to professors again, you can see how well that goes at nullbydesign.wordpress.com
I'm a digital space artist - I would just say artist but if you were to see my stick figures you would probably never fully recover. (doc-shadow.deviantart.com)
I'm a musician. I've played (in order) piano, alto saxophone, trombone, guitar, and bass guitar. I'm not going to be joining a band anytime soon but music has always been a big part of my life and I plan on continuing that trend by seeing how far I get playing around with digital music production.
I'm a gamer. Be it on the PC, Xbox, tabletop, board game... I think games are fun and if you hate fun we probably won't get much along. That being said I'm not a hardcore gamer; I don't disappear for months at a time after a game release or force people to talk about my newest achievement.
I like pushing my own boundaries and finding out which walls aren't really there, which are elastic, and which are made of stone.
And now working for Grassroots Campaigns.
I am in the dissertation phase of my psychology PhD. My actual specialty is a combination of clinical/educational. My dissertation topic is on the relationship between endorsements of beauty ideals and its relationship to cognitive rumination. This is mostly what my life revolves around at the moment and will for roughly the next year.
I'm also looking forward to working on several writing projects that are not my dissertation. Once I finish my first dissertation chapters I plan to add art and some music production back into the mix.
Part and parcel to that... I am full of random knowledge. I've studied psychology, philosophy, management theory, ethics, computer science, music theory, counter-intelligence... I probably only stand out being expert in the field of psychology but I have found a special joy in being able to connect the dots between more than one topic area.
Outside of being that annoying prick who's probably trying to verify a fact on his phone (probably something I said rather than something you said), I'm a funny guy. If you like the sort of words that come out of the mouths of people like George Carlin, Bill Hicks, or other cynical dead comedians you'll probably like sitting next to me until your sarcasm meter hits full.
Academic/Non-Fiction: Out of the Crisis, The Mind Body Connection, The Lucifer Principle, On Meditation, Light on Yoga, Moral Politics, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Predictably Irrational, Nudge, Vagabonding.
Fiction: Stranger in a Strange Land, Neuromancer, Lord of the Rings (ok fine, a lot of fantasy), I'll fill in more once I have my reading list nearby.
Music: Deadmau5, NIN, Ludovico Einaudi, Two Steps from Hell, Glitch Mob
Food: I developed a near heroine level addiction to Japanese style curry.
The internet (Because online access to academic journals is my current lifeblood).
Curry (see listings about favorite food and ask me about living in Japan).
If your ideal guy is someone who wonders what a trust issue looks like and whose only knowledge of baggage is what size carry-on will be allowed on your next trip you probably hit the back button at about the same time you saw my descriptions of what kind of sarcastic I can be. If not, why not try something new and find out what your shadow looks like?
Or if you are bored and want to message someone who is 90% certain to email you back.
