My self-summary
Someone recently asked me to tell them some interesting stuff about myself, so I just dumped this fact block, and decided it's probably the best intro I'm going to be able to write.

I almost got kicked out of college for hacking their servers even though I was the one who told them how and why and didn't do anything destructive. My program director defended me against the IT director. Always disable local account caching on your domain kids!

I've saved two girls from drowning in the rum river at a campground in isanti. I used to be a red cross certified life guard, and it was just dumb luck i happened to be up early that morning.

I've been in a sword fight with real swords (yes, i was quite young and dumb). Additionally I have had to get my pinky finger sewn back together due to a sword as well. I've hacked a company to destruction, I've been interviewed for a magazine. I've had a black eye in the last 2 months. I have two brothers, neither of whom I know. I am the last male in my bloodline and it dies with me.

I was part of the best halo video game team in the world for a while. Our 4 man team had over 200 games in a row victory streak back when gamespy was a thing before xbox live existed.

I have sweaty hands often, which is embarrassing and annoying. Hyperhydrosis is a bitch.

I hate shellfish and cannot eat if other people eat it around me because I find it so gross. This caused me a bit of embarrassment when my boss brought us to a nice seafood restaurant during a conference thinking he was doing a nice thing.

One time I got a dart thrown into my leg during a game of beer darts. It is a matter of pride how I ignored it and finished my pizza before patching up the admittedly small hole.

I lived in a single room cabin in extremely rural Montana for a few months by myself.

I've recently started to try to learn calligraphy since I don't really have any artistic talents and I want to be more well rounded.

I was the best programmer in a world wide contest website (it was called cloudspokes before it was merged wit top coder) and won over 40K there in prize money until it got all weird with favoritism and I quit.

During the summer I drive a mustang that does a quarter mile in 11.6 seconds. I have no idea how to fix cars or upgrade them.
What I’m doing with my life
Mostly trying to find the best ways to enjoy it. Currently I'm in the process of moving into a new apartment after living out west for a while and deciding I don't want to be a home owner anymore for now. I work from home as a senior developer for a consulting firm based in NY. From that work I also run a small technical blog detailing some of the cool projects and fixes I've done. Looking for a new martial arts gym after moving back. Redditing.
I’m really good at
Pool, cooking, flicking bottle caps really fast (seriously, I can weaponize a Gatorade cap). I'm also pretty handy at Smash Bros for the Wii U. I've been told I'm a good writer, though I'm not sure I buy it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I generally have pretty cool hair I guess. If my dog is around, definitely they notice him first. He's way more popular than I am :P
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Can't say I read too much fiction, I'm more of an informational book kind of guy, though I did recently just finish the pilliars of the earth audio book. Other than that, mostly just light reading kind of stuff (the art of intrusion, the hyperbole and a half book, martial arts instruction books, etc). Just reread the biography of Miyamoto Musashi, now reading a summary the biggest ideas in human history (philosophy, economics, etc).

Movies: shawshank redeption, samurai x, the waking life, troy, gladiator, john wick, lord of the rings,Harry Potter, Tony Jaa flicks, I'm also a sucker for documentaries about space, nature or history.

Music: All kinds of stuff but mostly jazzy hip-hop and rock. Here check this out. or this one is a good example of my kind of music as well

Shows: Rick and Morty, Futurama, 30 Rock, Frasier (just finished rewatching it), Good Eats, Peaky Blinders, Sparticus, Marco Polo, Always sunny in Philadelphia, One punch man, shokugeki no soma, RWBY, Archer, Bojack Horseman, Angel Beats, Atack on Titan, Death Note, Gurenn Lagann, House, Luther, Yu-yu hakusho, twilight zone, etc.

Food: Curry, Sushi, Tacos, grilled chicken, mostly healthy-ish stuff.

Games: Just finished playing the new Doom game. Also been enjoying Naruto Ninja Storm Full Burst, Rocket league, Smash brothers, Skyrim, Heroes of the storm. Shoutout to undertale, probably game of the year for me. Card against humanity, munchkin, settlers of catan, chess, pool, chivalry medieval warfare, betrayal at house on haunted hill, D&D, bowling, and of course billiards/pool.
