My self-summary
I'm Ravi. My spirit animal is the sloth. If something is worth doing, it's worth doing slowly.

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

I'm probably the most easygoing fellow you'll ever meet but part of that is that I premitigate situations that would cause me to be otherwise. That said, I take a 'why not' approach to most activities.

I don't have a moral stance against most things. (I would say anything, but I don't really believe in absolutes.) I'm logical to a fault, but I realize that the world is more complicated than is applicable in the realm of pure logic. A proper argument will always win me over any of my (current) personal beliefs.

Honestly if you assume nothing about me you'll probably be better served than if you assumed anything at all. I do my best to do the same for others.

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.
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. (I just realized that it's not something I've said, but I love cooking and am constantly trying to find new ways to make new things.)
Writing a few books perhaps, but probably not until I can convince myself that any writing is good practice.

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 (in terms of mitigating risk for potentially dangerous situations e.g. 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 (Jet Li film.)

I listen to all sorts of music, but I have a fondness for mashups and chillhop. Favorite artist: Sigur Ros (which doesn't fall into either of the previous categories)

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

- 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.

A question that comes up on sites like these more often than not: Would I try something that falls into the category of alternative lifestyles (open relationships)? Sure, why not.

I get along best with folks who are curious and willing to question the world around them. I do my best to hold myself to the same idea.
The two of us
