My self-summary
On a bullet points basis, I enjoy horror movies/games, good food & drink, travel, humor & comedy, sarcasm & wit, internet memes, awesome movie quotes and writing.

I'm a natural tech entrepreneur.

For personal time I try to travel and/or experience new & exciting places, people and culture. In fall of 2012 I taught myself some Japanese and traveled solo to Japan for two weeks. It was a fantastic experience and truly a fish out of water situation.

This summer I did a similar solo trip to Israel, a place I've wanted to visit since I was little. It was an amazing time and eating dinner in Old Jaffa looking over the Mediterranean was fantastic. I was also unaware that Tel Aviv has far, far better sushi than NYC. It honestly kind of hurt my feelings.

I've taken up Krav Maga, Muay Thai and BJJ. I've found I really, really love it and have been taking both group classes and personal training.
What I’m doing with my life
Learning new skills and languages (Japanese, Hebrew). I try to sharpen my core skills (software/business) but also like diving into classics in philosophy, literature, epistemology, quantum physics, etc.

Krav Maga / BJJ / Muay Thai

Traveling. I've been to Germany (Münster, Berlin & Hamburg), Bermuda, the Caribbean (Turks & Caicos), Japan (Tokyo & Kyoto), Mexico, Canada and Israel.

Writing a book. I like to write, particularly about life experiences.
I’m really good at
Duck, Duck, Goose

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Movies. Food. Tech. Sociology. AI. Quantum physics and logic. Qubits. Cryptography. Music. Next adventures.
On a typical Friday night I am
Eating delicious food that I most certainly did not make.

Napping, then seeing a movie.

Playing video games, particularly scary ones with the lights off.

Walking around the city, taking pretentious art photos.

Occasionally going out to a bar, lounge or club.

Coding. Or just watching a Louis CK/George Carlin/Sam Harris marathon.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I knew Edward Snowden before he ruined a US-Russian summit. Seeing yourself in national print being linked to the most wanted intelligence criminal is strange. Not getting any cash out of it is stranger.
