My self-summary
I'm a futurist, entrepreneur, nerd, football fan, amateur astrophotographer, and techie. I basically love technology, space, and gaming. I'm not a stereotypical gamer and really dislike when people immediately brush me off after labeling me as such. I'm very passionate about all my big hobbies and especially love the ones that I can do with other people. I'm an aspiring futurist and it's a goal (or at least a bar I've set for myself) of mine to reach Ray Kurzweil levels of prediction and to use that skill in business. I have several running ideas right now, but biotech is what I'm really driving towards. I see a big future in sustainable agriculture. I also do a lot of research into studying how the universe works. I love the principles of physics, with a particular interest in time and gravity.

As a person, I'm optimistic and hopeful, which I think is where my love of futurism comes from. I'm easygoing and engaging. I can easily hold conversation with pretty much anyone, so long as they talk back. I love trying new things and will generally say yes to most activities. I'm very outgoing but an introvert (INFJ), so I need alone time to recharge. I have a very strong will and am not easily pushed around. My humor is usually dirty or dad jokes and sarcasm. I do like jump scaring people too. I've gotten my roommates pretty good haha. I like to tease people I like. It's never malicious and it really is probably the biggest sign that I like you or feel comfortable with you. Sometimes it makes me feel like I'm a kid on the playground teasing the girl I like haha. I have a very logical mind and will gladly concede any argument that I would logically lose. If not immediately, then afterwards when I realize I am indeed wrong. I'm extremely ambitious and have been an entrepreneur for 8+ years and have no intention of ever not being my own boss.
What I’m doing with my life
I bought a house in Leschi. I also just upgraded my business's office to a place closer to home, which I'm really excited about (10 minute commute!).

I have several projects I'm working on. My primary one is my game company. I'm working with my awesome team on our current game about E-Sports, and it's progressing very well. I am very optimistic about its success.

My other ventures are a bit on the private side, but are all in either tech or science industries.
I’m really good at
I'm competitive. Not the bad sport kind. I treat failure as a learning experience, as hard as it can be (and I've had more than my fair share of failures). Playing games comes very naturally to me, because of this, and I'm usually pretty good at them.

I have a knack for concepting ideas and understanding market trends. I've been practicing the former since I was a kid. I spend a lot of time in my own head and write out whatever I'm thinking. It's fun for me to just sit and ponder the logistics of actually doing something. For example, a friend of mine and I thought about the logistics of being a supervillain who used drones to rob people. It was hilarious how surprisingly feasible it is.

As for market trends, that just comes from the ridiculous amount of research I do. I spend at least 3-4 hours per day researching technology, life sciences, space innovations, and other things I find interesting. Want to know what life will be like in 10-20 years? I can tell you.
The first things people usually notice about me
My green eyes or beard. They are probably what I get the most compliments for.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Quote: "Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity." - Horace Mann. I base all of my major life decisions on this mantra.

Books: Anything and everything regarding futurism. I love reading works from science advocates like Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Michio Kaku because they know how to make science enjoyable. I do read the hard stuff too like Superintelligence and books from The Great Courses. I'm a bit of a latecomer to Isaac Asimov's books, but am slowly working my way through them when I want to take a break from non-fiction. Sci-fi in general is my absolute favorite genre. Oh and Elon Musk's biography by Ashlee Vance was ridiculously inspirational.

Movies: Sci-fi again. Interstellar is my favorite movie right now because of how much it inspires the desire to further space travel. Jim Carrey is my spirit animal.

Shows: This is the golden age of TV. There are WAY too many to name. Game of Thrones, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Battlestar Galactica, Breaking Bad, Friends, and How I Met Your Mother are a small sample size of my favorites. STRANGER THINGS WAS AWESOME!

Music: I will listen to just about anything except a lot of rap. The lyrics to most rap songs hurt my head and make me feel really stupid. Country makes me feel the same way, but to a much lesser degree, because they basically only talk about tractors, beer, women, and bro-ing out and refrain from making up stupid words. "I'm In Love With The Coco" is the worst song ever made famous. Muse, Disturbed, and Con Bro Chill are my favorite bands and represent my highly varying taste in music.

Food: Pizza and sushi are closely tied for best foods ever invented. I will literally eat everything though. Trying new foods is a huge hobby of mine. I'm a Yelp Elite, if that tells you anything about my love of food.
The six things I could never do without
(these are in no particular order)
- Friends/Family
- Entrepreneurship
- Food
- A form of entertainment (computer/movie/game/etc...).
- Football. Go Seahawks!
- Technology
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I can do to make my company more successful, what the effects of new technology will have on society, why most people lack any ambition or desire to challenge themselves, when we will be space-faring, the Fermi Paradox, the meaning of life, why I'm so picky with who I date, what I want my legacy to be, what new place I want to check out in Seattle, when and if the technological singularity will happen, football season, and other nerdy things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends typically. Though I do enjoy lounging around, watching TV/movies, maybe having a glass of wine or a beer, and just relaxing.
