My self-summary
Science, technology, fitness, and dance nerd. Our bodies are really, really cool, so we may as well take great care of them right?

I love learning. Right now I'm learning as much as I can about systems engineering, and trying to write a program to forage technology articles for me, which would simplify my hobbies immensely.

I'm a transhumanist, which means I want to improve my body with technology as the capabilities advance. This philosophy drives my views.

I'm really, really intense. I talk fast, I talk too much, ideas hit like lightning, and I probably message people too much. I send off one idea and another appears. I love multiple hour long conversations at full speed.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a technical business analyst by day, and hustling for more of the same by night.

Picking up heavy weights and then putting them down again. I'd love to pick up ballroom again, or learn martial arts (or pole dancing, even).

Reading lots of science fiction.
I’m really good at
I'm fairly good at ballroom dancing (swing, latin, smooth, standard, waltz, all that fun stuff. Standard IDSF/Dancesport stuff), weightlifting, and a variety of videogames.

I make weird, spicy food. I experiment a lot. Rarely do I get complaints.

Writing technical documents. Writing argumentation. Bringing out the best in people.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm really intense, I'm short, I'm muscular.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books that either impacted me positively or that I enjoyed in the recent past:

Starship Troopers, Johnny Tremain, The Eschaton series, Laundry Files and Accelerando, Jim Butcher, Brandon Sanderson, Bruce Bueno de Mesquita, The Machiavellians, Nick Bostrom, Anders Sandberg, Robert Ettinger, FM-2030, The Golden Era, Iain M. Banks, Gene Wolfe, Roger Zelazny, Ken Macleod, Hannu Rajaniemi

I'm fond of a range of music from ACDC to Jason Mraz. I guess I can build this list as it comes to me: Styx, Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Airbourne, Caravan Palace, ZZ Top, Led Zeppelin, Whitesnake, Deep Purple, Foghat, Van Halen, Lindsey Stirling

Absolutely love food of all varieties, although it certainly drives my gym time. My best friend is a chef, I told her to go wild. About the only things I don't enjoy are really bitter tastes. Can't stand vinegar.

tl;dr Hard scifi, harder rock, and spicy food.
Six things I could never do without
Spicy food (Garlic, Thai peppers, curry powder, I love you so)
Dancing (of any sort)
Physical exertion
RSS feeds
The desire to learn
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The implications of a post-scarcity economy, what Godel would think about automated knowledge systems, trying to start my companies, trying to understand the implications of new technologies on the world, and what to learn next
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, playing videogames, working out, working at my computer, or down on Wilson with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My girlfriend and I are secret agents of the hegemonic capitalist patriarchy.
You should message me if
I suppose my lady friend and I are looking for another lady friend who wants to join us.

You want to work out, have a huge burrito, then lay around and play videogames while talking about sci-fi.

You emit cherenkov radiation when you go swimming. Your friends think you might be too ambitious. You think that asteroid mining is legit pretty cool. You live your life with brutal optimization.

You think you can live up to the pace that I set.
The two of us
