My self-summary
I'm not entirely sure what to put here, really.

I'm a pretty normal person. I have class. I have work. (Sometimes it even pays.) I hang out with my friends from time to time. I have a pretty snarky and ironic sense of humor, with several examples on this very page. I listen to music ranging from the overplayed to the how-the-fuck-did-you-even-hear-about-them? kind. I swear. Sometimes a lot. Kraken makes me bubbly.

I can be geeky and dorky--and nerdy--quite often. Punes, or plays on words, are my specialty. I sprinkle my conversation with references (did you catch that one?). Sometimes ones I'm not even aware of. I can jump from Kant to webcomics to advanced math lightning-fast. I am, in short, the man you wish your man could smell like.

(Read on if that made you lol.)
What I’m doing with my life
My main occupation is as a master's student in Civil Engineering at Temple University. I have also developed my own (combinatoric, for math geeks) models, which I occasionally receive coin for applying. Occasionally my words make it onto blogs, for still more coin.

Also I'm constructing mathematical things that will quite likely redefine entire disciplines, so there's that.
I’m really good at
Being introverted. Being random. Being illogical. Being phenomenological. Laughing. Writing. Reading. Model-making. Challenging golden calves. Being quirkily scholarly. Making my own words up. Cooking. Eating. Getting lost in soundscapes and fantasy worlds.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look fresh-faced for my age. When I'm doing things I love to do, I have an intensity, a passion; trying to explain it constantly eludes me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A list of all of my favorite books would be approximately the length and breadth of a library catalog. But the ones I've read recently that I've liked have been George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series, Jim Butcher's "Dresden Files", David Foster Wallace's "Infinite Jest" (not that I ever actually finished that encyclopediac monster), Hermann Hesse's "Siddhartha" and "Steppenwolf", Sherwood Anderson's "Winesburg, Ohio", Jorge Luis Borges' "Labyrinths", The Gospel of Thomas, Wittgenstein's "Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus" etc etc etc...

I'm a movie-grazer. Sometimes ones I've recently seen stick in my mind.

Shows? Elementary. Sherlock. Game of Thrones. Family Guy. Grimm. The Walking Dead. That sorta thing.

Music? Punk, post punk, indy rock, post rock all hit my buttons good. Radiohead, Interpol, Muse, Joy Division, The Clash, Mumford and Sons, as examples.

For food, anything from one of several dozen cuisines ranging from Latin America through the New and Old Worlds and Africa over into the Far East...
The six things I could never do without
1. The Internet
2. My phone
3. A pint
4. A book
5. My consoles
6. I'll get back to you...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Philosophy. Ways to fix math education. Engineering stuff. Good bands. What to eat. What I'm doing any given day. Zelda. Elder Scrolls. Whisk(e)y, witbier, ciders, and the Kraken. Stuff. And stuff stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm a very private person so I'm usually doing my own thing. Socialization doesn't come easily to me but I do enjoy a good party once in a while. Sometimes I forget when it's Friday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a very private person who can take a long time to open up. I'm very loath to push established boundaries in relationships. I'm also someone who prefers to be seduced rather than to seduce ... But if you push my buttons in just the right way, I become an unstoppable sex machine.
You should message me if
This post made you think, "Hey, he's funny" and then "wow, he's interesting" and then "he's deep". ;)
