My self-summary
I like concision, obscenity, complexity, data, puzzles, bourbon, analog telecom switches, esoteric theology, memory palaces, maps, secrets, absurdity, lists, coziness, esolangs, mazes, RNG, machines, silence, handwriting, acoustic modems, and the smell of air conditioning.

If we get to talking, I will very likely want to meet you. You're probably super cool, right? You totally are, don't lie.

Sin boldly!
What I’m doing with my life
Non-organic haruspicy.

I also have sort of a side hobby project I work on, designing and publishing tabletop games. I've published two so far and I've got several more in the works.

I'm trying to travel more. I almost have the time. My volunteer work for PAX helps motivate me to keep moving. I'm thinking of relocating to Seattle at some point in the distant-ish future.

Making preserves/jams/jellies.

Watching a veritable shit ton of lectures online.
I’m really good at
Head/back scratching, hypervigilance, folding fitted sheets, counter-attribution, inventing cocktails, freestyle wrestling, lucid dreaming, frying eggs, and drinking bourbon at inappropriate hours.
The first things people usually notice about me
Maybe my height? My massive amount of shoulder and arm freckles. And I've been told I've "got shoulders like woah."

Six things I could never do without
A cold pillow, my plushies, Carmex, an IronKey, incense, and cold air.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Neurotic minutiae, mostly. But also:

• How I can be of value to humanity.
• The nature of celebrity.
• Identity, semantics, and taxonomy.
• Permanently shadowed regions.
On a typical Friday night I am
Maybe reading, watching a movie, hanging out with friends, playing a board game... probably vegging out, though. Happy hour and hookah are also quite likely.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

If you've got questions, ask.
You should message me if

1.) You know what my username refers to.

1.1.) Let's be bad guys.

1.2.) Oh, and:

The two of us
