*** I'm on extended travel (mostly train because it's not as hectic as air travel) for a few months, so I will likely only exist in an online form unless you want to meet and explore some random city with me.
Was recently in: Chicago, St. Louis, Albuquerque, Pasadena, Orange, San Diego
Currently in: Monterey CA
Will be in: Jackson (Tetons trip for eclipse!), Boulder/Denver, Thailand, Somewhere in China?
I'm a pretty easygoing fellow; I take a 'why not' approach to most activities. I'm told my spirit animal is the sloth. If something is worth doing, it's worth doing slowly (and thoughtfully).
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 in Michigan, and have enjoyed travelling, but otherwise haven't yet made my way to everywhere I'd like to. Mind you, my preferential style of travel is not busily hopping from one sight to another.
I do a lot of things, but I wouldn't really identify myself with those things. I cook, rock climb, write computer code, but I wouldn't call myself a cook/chef, climber, or programmer.
Algorithmic Currency Trading
Making a game.
Enjoying the outdoors sometimes when I can.
Someday later: Opening a restaurant.
Writing random stuff, maybe a book someday.
I also want to sail around the world.
Also puzzles although this one I'm working on is kicking my ass... so maybe I'm not as good as I thought.
If you actually talk to me, you'll find I'm knowledgeable about a lot, and have opinions on a little. Unfortunately, this makes for rather bland conversations to start. I am passionate about some topics, but they're not really suitable for a little blurb.
I like movies, but I haven't found the time to sit down and watch them much recently; I think the last movie I watched was Interstellar. Favorite movie: Hero (Jet Li film.)
I listen to all sorts of music, but I have a fondness for mashups (which involves listening to just about everything) and chillhop. Favorite artist: Sigur Ros (which doesn't really fall into either of the previous categories)
Food - Italian style pizza. (There's a satisfaction in how complex this simple food actually is.) I enjoy variety, and wouldn't want to eat the same thing too often.
- 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
Some weird math problem.
When I get to go climbing next and hang out with friends. (Most of them have moved out west.)
How much variety exists in the world and how much most people cut themselves (and others) off from experiencing.
I get along best with folks who are curious and willing to question and explore the world around them and their beliefs about it. I do my best to hold myself to the same idea. However, the one thing that I do not tolerate, is willful ignorance.
Honestly it's probably better if you're a fan of: camping, hiking, climbing, variety in foods and drinks (beer/wine/spirits), have some interest in technology, enjoy games and are otherwise open and honest with what you want (even if it is simply that you don't know what you want).
I want someone to hang out with. Sometimes I don't want to talk and just being in the same room with someone else is satisfying. I understand that not everyone really gets this concept, that's ok, it appears to be something out of my upbringing and isn't ubiquitous.
