My self-summary
"We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly."
- Sam Keen

I'm a laid back person who loves great conversation over a good meal, whether out or at home. As for where or what about, in that I'm open minded. I work as a Software Engineer and am currently working on my Masters Thesis, so I stay busy, but I find time to relax, exercise, and have a little fun. I'm rather geeky, so be forewarned, but it mostly translates into a love of movies and books and discussing them with others.

I'll try most anything (at least) once and care more about being around interesting people than what we are doing. I love to learn about new things, and if full time student was a paid position, I would make a career of it. I love movies and books that make me think or that have good character development. I'm a fairly good cook and enjoy cooking for others.

I studied in Japan in college and would love to see more of Asia, Europe, the rest of the world really. I love to study other cultures and their history, finding the traditions and beliefs of people fascinating. I'm not religious myself, but I can understand why someone would be and don't mind those who are.

I tend not to worry about things, believing that if worrying won't help the situation, then why worry? Similarly, I try to find humor in every situation, even if it is a frustrating one, and would rather laugh about a situation than get angry about it.

Anyway, I'm not very good at these kinds of things, partially because I believe that people are too complex to be broken down into a handful of descriptive paragraphs. That being said, if you'd like to take a peek into the intricate maze that is my individual, feel free to contact me.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to finish my degree and further my career. I'm quite happy with my profession, honestly, though at some point I do intend to try for my Ph.D.
I’m really good at
Computers, though that phrase has become a bit saturated and has a lot of levels so let me elaborate. If you want to discuss about the pros and cons of SIMD/MIMD vs SISD CPU architecture or different scheduling algorithms, I'm your guy. Also, if you ever wanted to change your kernel panics to produce ascii LOL cats (of course still having the fault information), then you are not alone.

Spouting trivial facts that are never useful, but sometimes interesting.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some of my favorites, in no particular order:
Fantasy (J.R.R. Tolkein, Terry Pratchet, Sergei Lukyanenko)
Science Fiction (William Gibson, Philip K. Dick, Douglass Adams)
Video Games (Lufia 1 & 2, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Final Fantasy Tactics, Baldur's Gate Series)
Movies (Bram Stoker's Dracula, The Princess Bride, Blade Runner, Ikiru)
Television (Farscape, Firefly, IT Crowd, Breaking Bad)
Music (Nightwish, Stratovarius, Tom Waits, The Bird and the Bee)
Manga (Gunnm/Battle Angel, Berserk, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind)
Anime (Record of the Lodoss War, Ergo Proxy, 3x3 Eyes)
Comics (The Sandman (Gaiman series), The Emperor Joker, Deadpool, Knights of the Dinner Table)
Webcomics (XKCD, Dominic Deegan, The Order of the Stick)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future (of technology and society, not necessarily myself).
What do I need to do?
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out with friends for a good dinner, maybe a few drinks, and some good discussion. Or at home with a good book and a hot cup of tea/coffee.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Really, I'm pretty forward about things, so if you want to know something, just ask.
You should message me if
You feel like it?
The two of us
