My self-summary
I spend most of my time working, reading, writing, and gazing into abysses. I like concision, complexity, data, puzzles, analog telecom switches, maps, secrets, absurdity, lists, coziness, esolangs, mazes, RNG, machines, silence, handwriting, acoustic modems, and the smell of air conditioning.

I've spent a lot of my life feeling somewhat ambivalent about a lot of things, so I'm trying to be a bit bolder in my personal ideologies and outlook. DC seems like a good place for me to do this. Sin boldly!

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.
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 one 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.

I've recently started making preserves/jams/jellies, and loving it.

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
My height, I guess. My massive amount of shoulder and arm freckles. And I've been told I've "got shoulders like woah."

I think this would be a lot more interesting of a section if it asked what things take a long time to notice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Jeez. Too much. I'll try to keep it short.

Books: The Laundry Files series, Shibumi, HHGttG, Dune, An Incomplete Education, Ender's Shadow, A Game of You. Tom Robbins. Ursula K Le Guin.

Movies: Primer, Grosse Pointe Blank, In Bruges, The Departed, A Knight's Tale, Training Day, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Memento, Snatch, Aliens, Dawn of the Dead (2004), and The Raid.

Shows/Miniseries: Sense8, The Newsroom, tGaWLoCG, Firefly, Daria, Rick and Morty, Game of Thrones, Steven Universe, The Wire, Antiques Roadshow, Generation Kill, House of Cards, and Cowboy Bebop.

Music: Death Row, Rainbow, tons of pop, Digital Underground, Rush, The Sword, Meredith Brooks, Ronald Jenkees, Def Leppard, Caravan Palace, and DJ Okawari. Synthpop, R&B, and hair metal.

Food: Cajun, Ethiopian, Soul, Southeast Asian. Citrus, mushrooms, seafood, and spicy flavors. Grease and salt. Good steak. Pho. Reubens. Fruit. Occasionally, absurdly pretentious shit like mac & gouda w/ black truffle.
The 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.
• 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.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Bubble bath + bourbon and ice cream + book + Meredith Brooks = perfect evening.

If you've got questions, ask.
You should message me if
1.) Food! All of the food. If you're into that.

2.) You know what my username refers to.

2.1.) Let's be bad guys.

2.2.) Oh, and:
