My self-summary
I'm a software engineer working at financial tech startup in San Francisco. I love programming, but it's still a relatively new thing for me: I've done a career switch from the biosciences over the last few years.

I enjoy reading, coding, learning new things, and exploring SF (especially for its art). I'm a big fan of technology and all that the Bay Area has to offer.

For the Meyers-Briggs-inclined, I've tested as ISTJ or INTJ.
What I’m doing with my life
Improving myself, with a focus on coding and design. There's a lot that I'd like to do in life, and I suspect that most of it will happen through software.
I’m really good at
I'm good at writing, and at learning, and I'm pretty good at thinking and science.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm tall. Not crazy tall, but taller than the average guy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Dune, Neuromancer, the Foundation trilogy, Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin series, The Three Musketeers, and the Wheel of Time series. I love sci fi, but I've also always been a big fan of fantasy and adventure stories.

Movies: My favorite is Fight Club, and Pulp Fiction was pretty amazing, too. I liked most of the Star Wars and Lord of the Rings movies, and really liked Inception.

TV shows: Parks and Recreation, Arrested Development, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Dr. Who, Death Note, Sword Art Online, Ghost in the Shell.

Music: The only thing I really don't like much is country.

Food: I'm up for just about anything (I just don't like things that are really spicy). Italian is great, sushi is great, Thai can be really interesting... pretty much everything is good. My official favorite food is pizza.
The six things I could never do without
The internet
Good books
Good food
Good people
A comfortable work/living environment
Cuddling / physical touch
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Philosophy, psychology, biology, computer science, and my job.
On a typical Friday night I am
Spending the evening out with my work friends, at a nearby bar or karaoke.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I get bored pretty easily.

You should message me if you want to message me, and only if you want to, really; please don't message me under duress. :P
