My self-summary
I try to think my way through life. I like trying new things, puzzles, and building things.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently working my way through grad school (PhD in computer security) while thinking about the future. I may end up being just another software engineer, but I'm also trying to think of new schemes that might make a viable startup. All of this would be for after grad school though, so it's slightly distant future.
I’m really good at
Anything involving computers, data analysis, or puzzles comes fairly naturally to me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I speak my mind, and am willing to have a discussion about pretty much any of my views. My long hair is also slightly unusual.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
* Kingkiller Chronicles
* Stormlight Archive
* LoTR
* ASoIAF
* Wheel of Time
* Wizard's First Rule
Movies:
* Dr. Strangelove
* Boondock Saints
* Pulp Fiction
* Serenity
The six things I could never do without
* Friends, etc.
* Computer, with internet, power
* Tea or soda of some kind
* A/C
* Uh, other than basic human needs, that's about it. We get 6 things?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
* Formalizing the inference structure of the analysis of binary code (my current research topic - this turns out to be incredibly complicated)
* How we could move towards a post-scarcity society. (Not actually in a position to do anything about it, nor do I have an amazing plan, but I do think about it a bunch.)
* Optimization in video games (fits in EVE, factory designs for Factorio, etc)
On a typical Friday night I am
Varies widely, but probably playing board games, playing videogames with friends, or out to dinner with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not super secretive - unless it would be revealing someone else's secret, I'll tell you pretty much anything you ask me, so it's hard to decide on something to put here.
You should message me if
Really, if you're interested, just send me a message about anything.
