My self-summary
I'm Ravi.

I like rock climbing, video games, craft beers, information theory, and in general seeing new things.

I don't have a moral stance against most things, but I will avoid things that seem like a lot of hassle. I tend to be pretty logical, so if that's how you think, we'd probably get along fine. Honestly if you assume nothing about me you'll probably be better served than if you assumed anything at all.

I grew up here (Michigan), and have enjoyed travelling a bit to Europe on occasion and once to Thailand, but otherwise haven't yet made my way to everywhere I'd like to.

I'm up for whatever usually though. So feel free to say hi.
What I’m doing with my life
Making money algorithmic trading. (Cryptocurrency)
Designing a video game and programming it. (Idle game)
Going Rock Climbing. (I've been called the theoretical climber mostly because I like solving the climbing problems in my head.)

Someday later: Opening a restaurant.
Writing a few books perhaps, but probably not until I can convince myself that any writing is good practice.

More relevant:
Probably going to end up living in Colorado (Boulder area likely) with friends. (Cooperative housing or a commune or whatever the hell you want to call a situation that leverages the economics of scale.)

I also want to sail around the world at some point.
I’m really good at
Being slow and enjoying the process. I like to take my time with just about everything, part of it is for being careful (working up the skills to go canyoneering), part of it is just because I like to savor what I'm doing. I can be prodded along sometimes when there's a sense of urgency, but most things aren't urgent.

Also puzzles.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, honestly I don't know. Probably that I'm different looking than the usual midwestern person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books by Brandon Sanderson, Song of Fire and Ice.

I like movies, but I haven't found the time to sit down and watch them much recently. Favorite movie: Hero

I listen to all sorts of music, but I have a fondness for mashups. Favorite artist: Sigur Ros

Food - Italian style pizza. I enjoy just about anything though.

Games
- League of Legends (mostly a social thing at this point)
- Dustforce (no, I don't expect anyone to know this game)
- Board Games like Carcassonne
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Bitcoins and cryptocurrencies.
Counter strategy trading algorithms.
When I get to go climbing next and hang out with friends. (Most of them have moved out west.)
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't have a schedule that I keep, so it could literally be anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't have much in the way of secrets, but I do believe in a difference between private information (that which I tell a few people) and public information (that which is available to anyone in the world who wants to look). If you ask a question, I'll answer. (Though I can't provide assurances that my answers tend to be satisfactory...)
You should message me if
What am I looking for? I never know. I constantly change those little boxes at the side that say what I'm looking for. Friends are always good, a date would be nice too.

I'd of course prefer someone who could be all of the above, but honestly, I figure the odds are astronomical that they'd be here. Of course, you can't win if you don't play, and the expected value to cost ratio of those odds on a free website is still better than nothing! (Indeterminate really...)

I get along best with folks who are curious and willing to question the world around them.
