My self-summary
Hello, I'm David.

I've actually gotten to know myself pretty well as of late, so this may go overlong. I passionately crave new experiences. For example, I was tired of my job and most recent home town. So I quite my job, sold my car and house, then set off to figure out where I wanted to live for the next few years. I went to Atlanta, Chicago, New York, Toronto, Portland, Denver, San Fran, Reykjavik and Cedar Point before all was said and done. Cedar Point wasn't really on the move list that was just for the rides. Currently getting settled in Chicago.

I do whatever I can to make sure my day is not predictable. As a consequence I usually have no idea what I'll be doing until it's actually happening. Not including things worth planning likes trips to the beach, concert, vacations, abandoned places to trespass in, etc.
What I’m doing with my life
I work when necessary. All other time is spent making memories worth keeping.

Also, I'm on a life long mission to make people associate "engineer" with "sexy". I think it has to do with how bad we are at marketing. Fitness stereotypes aside, what isn't appealing about an intelligent guy with a good income who can tell you how the world works?
I’m really good at
Inventing, punning, the internet, teaching.

You hear the one about the guy who went to war and was hit with mustard gas AND pepper spray? He went home a seasoned veteran :D
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes and that I'm a nerd who isn't completely out of shape.

Then later when I wear a different color shirt, my eyes again. They tend to blend with whatever prominent color I'm wearing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Name of the Wind, Game of Thrones, American Gods, The Foundation Trilogy, the Fault in Our Stars, and the Dresden Files.

Couldn't survive road trips or public transport without my podcasts. RadioLab, Freakenomics, This American Life, and Stuff Mom Never Told You to name a few.

I Heart Huckabees, American Hustle, Gravity, My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, and Hedwig and the Angry Inch. One day I will own a room sized plushie Totoro.

Brooklyn 99, American Dad, True Detective, Modern Family and Shark Tank. All that is Cosmos. I'd inject cosmos in my veins if they could concentrate it in liquid form.
For some really strange reason I just love the show clean house. There are so many like it, but that one in particular just gets to me. The best episodes have that Niecy lady.

Daft Punk, Lindsey Stirling, Mos Def, Gorillaz, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Cake and Blind Melon.
I listen to pretty much everything except country. Although to be fair some has slipped in now and again.

All food. Except durian because it tastes of garbage and throw up.
The six things I could never do without
1. Lists, seriously I'd get nothing done without them.
2. The next stupid/hilarious thing to plan with my friends.
3. Being easy to entertian. Why make being happy complicated?
4. Burt's Bees peppermint lip balm.
5. Rock climbing. It's my kind of meditation.
6. One other important thing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Is what I'm doing with my work life making the kind of lasting impact I want on the world? I'm intelligent and willful enough to shape what I do around the change I want to see in the world. It's a kind of self fulfilling obligation.
On a typical Friday night I am
It really varies depending on my mood. Let loose and dance? Find a Trance or EDM concert. Found a new place I want to explore? Break out the GPS and police scanner app. Still in the midst of an invention based obsession? Research, sketch layouts and solder until my eyes ache.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I had to go gay, it'd be for a young Indiana Jones looking guy.
Regardless, we'd probably end up making out a bit.

Also, I look fantastic in fishnets.
You should message me if
If you’re not normal and don’t try to be. If you can deal with someone being intelligent, super cheesy and charming all in the same conversation. If you love the new more than the known.

I once randomly brought a 6 foot wide, 250 foot long roll of bubble wrap to a party then laid it out on the dance floor. What proceeded was an hour long, bubble wrap popping dance party the likes of which have become a necessity at future parties. If that kind of foolishness doesn't appeal to you it would just never work between us.
