I'm a huge nerd, but with an athletic and growth-oriented twist to my persona. I value understanding and the free expression of ideas and have a strong aversion to dogmatism.
Outside of my professional life, you'll find me practicing martial arts, coding/mentoring underrepresented groups of people in tech, playing online games, or out cycling around Boulder.
I'm currently searching for a dojo to call home. I've already trained for seven years in Tae Kwon Do (black belt, 1st dan), but am finding that I reaped a lot more benefits from physically training than simply keeping the mindset present.
I play a lot of current online games (PC titles), Magic, DnD, and am totally down for a game of Secret Hitler any time.
I have always been athletic. Sports without a ball are my favorites, and I used to compete nationally in track.
Games. I am especially good at shooters and social engineering games.
I'm also bomb at making scrambled eggs and toast. Try me.

Books: Redwall trilogy, The Little Prince, Lord of the Rings
Movies: A Clockwork Orange, LotR: Return of the King, Twelve Angry Men

Games: Undertale, Dark Souls, NieR: Automata to name a few favorites. I also play Magic: The Gathering, DnD, WoW, Overwatch, PUBG, etc. regularly with friends.
Food: Salmon, Chocolate Milk, Mashed Potatoes, Spinach salad with strawberries.
The internet is the biggest one for me. Without it, I wouldn't have a consistent competitive outlet, easy communication with friends in other states/countries, or access to relatively free information about whatever strikes my fancy.
Please, don't just send me one-word messages. I have a lot of respect for people who break the "social norm" and message/approach the guy first, but say something more than "Hey".
