My self-summary
Let's see...Me? Intelligent, thoughtful, friendly? Done, done, and done. Funny? I'm the sarcastic guy on the email thread spicing up the conversation. I like to make fun of people, ya know, not necessarily in a bad way. It's a way I express my love. Affectionate? Can you be too affectionate? I don't think so.

I like to think I am an intellectual, but I may just have been in school for too long. I recently finished my PhD in computer science, so if you want to discuss the differences between Bayesians and Frequentists, I can oblige, although I would rather discuss what authors we have in common or what we could recreate if we were mysteriously transported back in time. My excessive years of schooling did land me an awesome job in the valley matching jobs to people (no, really, it is interesting work), so maybe it wasn't all for naught.

I'm from the Midwest - moved here almost a year ago from Madison. As any good midwestern, I strike up conversations with taxi drivers, I am always polite, and don't mind a little country music on occasion. I've been settling into San Francisco for the last nine months or so, discovering the people and places that I enjoy, the this and thats of a new culture far far away from my midwest roots, exploring the city and the marvelous surroundings. In fact, I hardly ever get upset when people tell me I have a Canadian accent anymore.

There is a dynamic duality to me. I can be outgoing and social and I can be thrilled to curl up at home with a good book, watch an 80's comedy, or play a game. In a nutshell, I am a laid back guy looking for someone to enjoy the simple things with: a evening cuddling and watching TV, a night out dancing, a weekend hiking in Tahoe, or an afternoon theorizing about the world and life over a beer or two. I prefer Angel Spike, not Edward Jacob. I prefer musicals and opera to symphony and ballet and I would rather dance at a wedding than sit around and chat. If the names Dresden or Atreides mean something to you, we could really have a good time over a cup of coffee. You in? Send a quick note and say hi.
What I’m doing with my life
I just finished up a PhD in computer science and moved out to SF for work.
I’m really good at
Sleeping soundly.
Being loud.
Talking excessively.
Being excessively quiet.
Being consistent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I live pretty much anything sci-fi in both movies and books. My favorite books include Neverwhere, Endymion, Dune, Dresden files, Harry Potter, Diamond Age, Anathem, and Neuromancer.

Movie/TV - movie select pretty much follows my reading interest: Sci-fi/fantasy with a splash of action and comedy thrown in. Like seeming everyone else, I love Game of Thrones, although I found the books a bit tedious.

Music - very eclectic - Blues, 80 Rock, Country, Indie, some R&B/HipHop, and Funk, as well as various musicals. My recent favorite has been the Decemberists, but that is like to change any given week.
Six things I could never do without
iPad...my preferred way to read.
Intelligent friends.
An occasional beer. (Doh...the stuff that buys me beer...)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
On most days you can find me singing along to whatever random song is playing in my head...although I don't have a very good memory for lyrics, so I generally make them up as I go about whatever I am doing at the time.
You should message me if
you enjoy good conversation, dancing wildly, or cuddling up to a good movie.
The two of us
