My self-summary
Somewhat recent transplant to Austin.

I'm an ambivert and while I enjoy being around people immensely, it takes a toll on me. This means that occasionally I need time to myself to collect my thoughts. Where others might become energized by other people, I can become drained by it.

I am an information sponge. I love learning and am always reading about some new discovery in meta-materials science, medicine, tech, space, history, you name it. I guess you could say it is my hobby. Our species is gaining knowledge so quickly now that it's difficult to keep up, but that's what makes it even more intriguing to try.
What I’m doing with my life
I can honestly say I love what I do. I write software for a living. It's kind of like legos for your mind since you get to build all the pieces you want/need.

I'm also working on a local co-op/competitive multiplayer game with some friends in my spare time.

I recently bought a ukulele and so far it's been pretty easy to pick up, though I haven't been playing as much now that there's so much to explore in Austin.

I love to travel, but don't do so often enough. The two places I most want to visit are Japan and Ireland.
I’m really good at
Cooking, actually. Ask anyone that knows me and they'll tell you that I really enjoy hosting friends and family for dinner or whatever the occasion might be and I'm pretty damn good at it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I view the world through a different lens.

I hate small talk. It is almost physically painful to me and feels like such a waste of time. Why not talk about more important things?

In general I have faith in humanity, but there are several important things happening right now that call that faith into question. What are those "important things" that are happening? Let's talk about those!

I want to surround myself with people that give a damn about th reality of life and universe. Those with a mind who think for themselves. Show me you're a living, thinking, feeling, human being.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What would the world be like if we cloned herds of Albert Einsteins, Nikola Teslas and Carl Sagans?

Trees construct themselves from AIR.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably unwinding watching a movie at home with my dog Zeke or out with friends enjoying one of the many food truck menus nearby.
You should message me if
"Don't lose yourself" she said to me
"As you stare into my eyelids to the backend of my brain.
You look behind my eyes to see the blackened underneath."
She said "don't lose yourself,
'cause you know it'll change."
