My self-summary
Oh yay, another straight white cisgender software guy! We are pretty much the worst, right? Ugh.

So, yeah, I try not to be the worst. I try to listen more than I talk, but I also love telling stories and explaining neat things. I try to use my unreasonable privilege to help people, but jeez, that is just intrinsically tricky, you know?

Anyway, about me: ambivert, funny, generally loud, nerdy, smart, kind. Varying amounts of Liz Lemon, Leslie Knope, Pete Hornberger, Ben Wyatt, and sometimes Ron Swanson, with aspirations of Donna Meagle, Jack Donaghy, and Tom Haverford.
What I’m doing with my life
Professionally: working a job I fucking love so much I worry sometimes I'm actually in a coma and just dreaming the whole thing.

Personally: being married to the best lady I could have possibly married, taking care of three cats, and having no interest in kids. Looking to meet new people for friendship, maybe smooches, maybe more. (To be clear: everything is above-board, re the marriage situation. All parties are informed and consent.)
I’m really good at
Reading a lot, remembering obscure shit, and making connections between disparate fields of study. I'm pretty smart and have inattentive-type ADHD, which means I will get super into stuff like nuclear physics, or the history of bread, or making AJAX calls from JavaScript embedded in SVG images. So I know a lot of weird shit. I get asked "how do you know that?" a lot. Also, I'm a pretty good singer.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm quite tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I mostly read sci-fi (and technical programming shit): my favorites are probably Alastair Reynolds and Neal Stephenson, and I have been a die-hard Star Wars nerd for probably 15 years now. Yes, even through the prequels. (I have my reasons; they are surprisingly personal.) Oh, and for technical programming shit, I actually really love my 4th Edition The C# Programming Language with commentary from my programming hero, Eric Lippert. He is a dreamboat.

TV: 30 Rock (still not over it being over), Parks and Recreation, Better Off Ted, Broad City, Mr. Robot, I'm gonna have to come back to this later.

Movies: My all-time favorite movie is Jurassic Park. I am not being ironic.

Music: a lot of stuff with absolutely no consistent theme. Not much modern country. Also, NPR around here has basically burned me completely out on jazz. Jesus Christ with the jazz around here...

Food: I can't even begin to address my food situation. Let's say "remarkably annoyed vegetarian" and leave it at that until you get a chance to ask me to elaborate.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order: weird math/programming problems, my wife, cats, laughing in the face of tragedy, my sister, obscure Star Wars references in 30 Rock.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Figuring out what I'm doing over the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I really really miss my mom.
