My self-summary
J'ai des drôles de plans. Je fais toutes sortes de choses qui me surprennent moi-même. Récemment j'ai entrepris de recréer la cuisine de la Rome antique. Si Astérix vous donne faim...

A lot of what I do comes unannounced from the left field. I am currently reconstructing the cuisine of ancient Rome in my kitchen. Why not?
What I’m doing with my life
3D printers. Design. Neuroscience. And many other things as well.

I'm a research scientist and if you thought that this might be an awesome job, let me dispel any doubt: it really is.

Je suis scientifique de recherche et si tu penses que c'est une job platte, mange un char.

At 22, I worked in a Marseille research lab. On my first day, at exactly 12:30 my boss came and said "Laisses tes outils, c'est l'heure du déjeuner -> drop your tools, it's lunchtime." I took part in the sudden, all-inclusive communal march of the French toward the caféteria. I was served a three course meal, with cheese, dessert, a glass of wine and my pick in an olive bar.
The French ate and bantered but 13:15 come, they communally moved to the coffee and cigarette area, then resumed work as they had stopped it at 13:30. The research institute opened at 8:30 and was shut, with all lights off at 18:30. It was shut all weekend long.
My north American workaholic self could not express itself and this was liberatory. I wandered off in Marseille's seaside calanques, drank some wine, swam top-less in Mediterranean creeks, took the train to visit the regional sights, yet, I accomplished a hell of a lot of work.
I’m really good at
Injecter une dose de perspective aux malheureux en détresse.

Helping a distressed person calm down and put things in perspective.

Cognitive psychology.

La psycho cognitive et la philo à deux sous.

Saying unsettling things matter-of-factly.

Être extremement vulgaire juste au bon moment.

Storytelling. Raconter des histoires.

Designing and constructing 3D printers.

Fabriquer des trucs et autres machins.
The first things people usually notice about me
Just watch me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
John Stuart Mill reminds me that we haven't done much since 1820 really. Except the sciency-computer shit.

J'aime les sciences, en théorie.

Stanley Kubrik makes me want to buy a Go Pro cam. Ingmar Bergman bothers me when his films remind me of my upbringing.

Those aircraft safety information cards in the pocket of the seat in front, they're incomprehensible are they not?

Si j'étais dans un accident d'avion la dernière chose que je consulterais serait la carte bédé incomprehensible qui se trouve dans la poche du siège en face.
The six things I could never do without
Military issue wool blankets.
Soldering iron.
The Goldilocks zone.

The means of production.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Je ne suis pas un animal.
I am an animal.
On a typical Friday night I am
having a good old chat.
You should message me if
I don't wish to impose constraints on who you want to be, but I will state this:

I constantly reflect on the reasons and incentives that drive my behavior and my expectations of other's behavior.

I don't hold others to a higher standard than I expect of myself and the example of other's achievements inspire me.

Je ne veux pas t'imposer un role que tu ne veux pas prendre. La pogne tu?

Tu ne ferais peux-être pas ça d'habitude mais écris-moi. Je te donnerai deux morceaux de robot.

Après réflection, j'ai réalisé que quand une femme m'écrit en premier je suis beaucoup plus enclin à la gâter. Comme un bon placement à la bourse...

Reflecting on my behavior I realized that when a woman writes me first I am that much more inclined to cajole her. Wise investment...

Message me, period.
