My self-summary
Howdy!

I'm a foodie, and the over educated child of a pair of winos, so I'm got too many opinions on these things for my tax bracket. I just moved to a new place where I'm finally able to cook again, after two years in a less than ideal kitchen scenario. Sadly, I'm much rustier than I would have hoped.

I love going to concerts (indie, electronic), dancing, video games, brunch, and being around friends!

I wish "diet" was a fill in the blank field so I could say I'm an "Omnomnomnivore".

I'm looking for a concert/clubbing/event buddy who'd like to spend the night afterwards. More than happy building up to that point. It usually takes me a while to get there, myself.

Few of these pictures will wind up looking like me in person. I'm working on fixing it, but in the meanwhile just imagine how cool being reverse catfished is.
What I’m doing with my life
I started an MBA program in January, which is causing me to switch my habits around pretty dramatically. I'm excited and a little anxious about the change. I love going out with my friends. These days, it's usually concerts and club nights (think Decibel Festival), which is a shame because I'm more of an Indie Rock / Jazz Quartet kinda guy when left to my own devices.

I love listening to and making music. I get really excited by new albums, and if I don't rotate my selection every month or so, I'll 'inexplicably' turn dour until I get something fresh on. I sing, play guitar, mandolin, and can fool around on bass, too. Most of my music I made is software based these days.

I'm obsessed with learning, which makes me a jack of all trades / master of none kinda person. I'm not satisfied unless I'm learning about more subjects than I have time to learn about. For example, right now I'm learning managerial accounting, business ethics, and market research for school, and Android app development, Arduino programming, Python, analog synthesizer programming, and calibrating my 3D printer for fun. Or torture. Or both. In the gaps I read fantasy, hard Sci-Fi, and modern philosophy books.

What it turns into is a crazy hodgepodge of ideas and trivia bouncing around in my head. It frequently results in strange Rube-Goldbergesque combinations. I can control every piece of electronics in my room using either my smartphone or through a series of covertly placed remotes.
I’m really good at
Explaining horribly complicated things in easily understandable terms using metaphors.
Off the cuff quips and puns.
Typing while maintaining eye contact and a conversation.
Leading the group at the expense of my own personal agenda.
Under reporting my credentials and abilities.
Storytelling.
Walking all day from neighborhood to neighborhood visiting neat spots in order to catch Pokemon.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'd have to poll them, and that'd be awkward to do with people who have just met me.

"Hey! Oh? Nice to meet you too! Oh, while we're on the subject, what's the first thing you noticed about me? Oh? Uh hun, go on... Perfect! Thank you for participating in my survey!"

Oooh, I know! I need someone to follow me around with a questionnaire. They can conduct the survey after I leave the room to remove bias! You any good with a clip board?

Really, though? I like to dress well.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Sushi, Pho, Ethiopian, molecular gastronomy, Italian...etc.
As long as it is freshly prepared, and delicious. Double points if it's healthy! Wine pairings are fun too. I'm less for cooked seafood, but I'll try anything thrice.

Stephen Colbert (Ask me about my trip to the Rally!), Last Week Tonight, The Expanse, The Mighty Boosh, Gurren Lagann, Cowboy Bebop, Mr. Robot, Silicon Valley, Documentary Now!, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Mike Tyson Mysteries, Rick and Morty... Not really TV, but PBS's YouTube series Idea Channel is amazingly edifying.

Cloud Atlas, American Beauty, Interstella 5555, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Birdman. Swiss Army Man. I go through these so quickly I can't keep very many in my memory. My Dad used to run a home theater business, so I've seen a fair share of cinema.

Mostly Indie-rock and house, but I seriously enjoy every flavor. Daft Punk is and always will be my favorite band. Hot Chip, Bonobo, Four Tet, Fleet Foxes, Kendrick, Royksopp, Moderat, LCD Soundsystem, Sylvan Esso, Operators, Yeasayer, The War on Drugs, Chvrches, Shearwater, Gesaffelstein, Fourplay, BBC recordings of Beethoven symphonies, The Crusaders, and Mingus.

Anathem, Redwall, Shadow of the Wind, anything by Palahniuk, Wise Man's Fear, Dune, Sandman, DMZ, The Massive (Comic), The Mistborn Trilliogy, Accelerando, The Measure of Reality: The Quantification of Western Society (1250-1600) [No, seriously, that last one is astoundingly fascinating].
The six things I could never do without
Music
Access to information
My water bottle
Company in metered doses
Improvement
Functioning organs

That said, I'm amazing at improvising, so 'never' is an incredibly relative term. I'm an Eagle Scout. I roll with it. Never confuse being prepared with being equipped.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Music, strange hypotheticals, word play, hilarious worst case scenarios.
10 second comedy sketches.
Jokes that use two or more languages for the punchline.
Sex, positivity, and why we can't just all pile in a big ball and play.
Elaborate pranks to pull on my lovely roommates (they said that the job I did of tin-foiling their beds after vacation was a work of art. Made me feel warm and fuzzy inside). [Less now that I've moved out of that house.]
Track lists for the next mix or playlist I'm brewing.
How to set up a reason to cook something elaborate without raising the stakes high enough that people will get angry if it turns out poorly.
If I should type any given statement out using colloquial jargon and spelling conventions or a nigh-impenetrable assembly of exceedingly precise verbiage.
The best way to add neon lights to drab pieces of clothing, so that I can glow in the dark and my friends can find me easier.
Whether anyone reads this, or if I'm just spouting text into the wind.

Whether or not I'm using the correct homonym of weather.

Where that pair of headphones that's slightly better in this situation have gotten to. Seriously. I have 4 pairs in sight, but I can't find my running Klipsches. THIS IS A DISASTER.
On a typical Friday night I am
Organizing a group to go hit up Kremwerk, or The Monkey Loft, or something.
Board games with friends.
Playing the story driven RPG of the month.
Reading a book in the bathtub with a glass of scotch and a bowl.
Recovering from Thursday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Whenever a conversation has died or a situation has become awkward, I unconsciously make strange little squelchy noises with my mouth before moving somewhere else or changing the subject.
You should message me if
...you like having a conversation with someone who is periodically compelled to say the worst thing he can think of in response to a question for sheer shock value.

...you're interested in an evening of banter and snark.

...you want to spend a day walking Seattle hunting for Pokemon.

...you know of an up and coming artist who you want to share with someone new.

...you want to smoke and watch documentaries, Studio Ghibli movies, or all three Neverending Story movies in sequence.

...you've got a great idea for an adventure, and need a jack of all trades to cover your bases.
