My self-summary
Kimmy Schmidt isn't available, so let's seen who's on OkCupid.

You don't need to call me SuperEntendre. My name is John.

- make puns
- study languages
- fly airplanes
- cook
- love yoga
- prefer more engaging activities than drinking
- read quite a bit, mostly non-fiction (I really enjoy fiction, too, but I'm not quite as driven to read it the way I am with nonfiction)
What I’m doing with my life
My career is in machine learning. I've spent a few years working on a profitable system, but I would like to branch out to solving more meaningful problems in the future. I'm a big believer that everyone can improve their lives by learning how to code, and I'm passionate about helping them learn.

Outside of work I ski by winter and fly by summer. I am pro-karaoke all year 'round. My friends and family mean everything to me.
I’m really good at
- imitating Seth MacFarlane voices
- giving inappropriately literal answers to questions
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall and use a large vocabulary.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Once and Future King, Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!, Calvin and Hobbes

Movies: the ones that you like but that you wouldn't list on an OkC profile. Comedies, classic action, and the occasional documentary.

Shows: American Horror Story, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Music: Maroon 5, Macklemore, Stravinsky, John Williams, Howard Shore, Daft Punk, power rock

Food: Non-pushy, active, paleo guy. Steak, beets, parsnips, sauerkraut, pork chops, eggs, raisins, pecans, applesauce, carrots, bananas, grapes, sweet potatoes, asparagus, Brussels sprouts, onions, garlic, peppers, broccoli, olive oil, spinach, tomatoes, avocados.... That doesn't mean we'll never eat other food just for fun.
The six things I could never do without
Family - Whereas "friends" is as obvious an answer as "air," "family" deserves a call-out here.

Podcasts - They can fill otherwise long car rides with humor, perspective, and thought experiment. Some of my favorites are Freakonomics, Serial, Intelligence Squared US, GeekNights, and my gem of a guilty pleasure, The Biggest Problem in the Universe.

Eggs - Eggs are quick to cook, delicious, versatile, and a paleo breakfast staple. I list them here as a symbol of my commitment to clean eating as a vehicle for taking care of the one body that I have.

Skis - Skiing is really, really fun. If you haven't tried it, you should. It's the best. Oh my gosh. Seriously. You should ski. High-five.

Math - The world is complex. Math is a powerful tool for reasoning about complex realities; for example, calculus is the easy way to do physics (side note: why do we bother teaching kids algebra-based physics? That's unkind). Plus I have a mathematical soft spot from watching "Donald in Mathmagic Land" on loop as a kid (

Ailerons (rhymes with "hey sure, John's," but smushed into a single word) - Ailerons are the control surfaces that allow roll control of an airplane. Strictly speaking, I suppose I could, under duress, do without flying, but once I'm flying, losing ailerons would get me in trouble.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Is technology simplifying my life or complicating it? Is technology enabling my goals or dictating them? Does technology give people a voice or censor them?
