My self-summary
OK! Let's do this!

Prepare to be overwhelmed by feelings of attraction, for you are about to read my very exciting self-summary.

Life Story
I studied biology in college, because I wanted to understand the human body better. I also wanted to help make a difference, because diseases are a Bad Thing. So my first job out of college was doing lab work.

Lab work was neat and everything (DNA is exciting, I guess?), but I ended up not feeling very happy. Working in a biology lab can be awfully repetitive, and it involves a lot of uncertainty; it wasn't my cup of tea. So, at the suggestion of some of my friends, I learned to code.

Now I'm an Official Professional Programmer, and it's a lot of fun. Definitely the career for me!

Things I Like And Stuff
Logic and rationality are important to me. There's nothing I like more than a serious philosophical conversation. It's like cuddling for the brain -- it feels amazing.

One of the most important lessons I've learned in life so far is that it isn't important to be right about something already -- rather, it's important to become more right over time. That's all about thinking critically and being open to new information. Knowledge and open-mindedness! Yay! Exciting stuff.

I'm a big fan of computers, but I also really like visual art and design. I love SFMOMA and the de Young, and particularly enjoyed the exhibits I saw over the last year or so on Ed Ruscha and Frank Stella.

I also love dogs. They're the best -- they look at you, you look at them, they smile, you smile, it's great. They're like four-legged beings made of pure happiness.

I love everything cyberpunk. Neuromancer, Ghost in the Shell, you name it. I can't wait for Blade Runner 2049.

Generally life is good. I'm not a fan of the whole "it has an ending" thing, but it seems neat otherwise. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

So that's me. Yeah! Jazz hands

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