My self-summary
What to say. I did MIT undergrad, did the quant thing on Wall Street for a few years, and now I'm back in grad school for a Ph.D. So that happened.

I am passionate about a few things: math and the Red Sox being two of them. I am known to partake in debates of the political or scientific sort from time to time. In that vein, I am also known to be sarcastic. I enjoy playing sports, particularly baseball. Recently, I've been hitting up the gym 2-3 times a week. Last year, I played on my department's intramural volleyball team, Set Theory, and last semester I captained our other men's team, Net Convergence, to an undefeated record. Good Times.

I don't mind the occasional bar hop, I'm always up for a Sam Adams (or Guinness). Back in Cambridge, I completed the 133 beer long beer list (over 6 months, I'm not that much of a lush) at Bukowski Tavern, which was definitely a learning experience. This has left me to be somewhat of a beer snob I s'pose. I also went on a wine vineyard tour this past January, which was similarly educational. Apparently, I have an affinity for malbecs and cabernets. So really, I'm an intellectual boozer.

I tend to be fairly open-minded (I am a denizen of the internet era), and consider myself a left-leaning moderate.
What I’m doing with my life
I worked on Wall Street as a quant for a while. I may go back, but only after I complete a graduate degree and am in a solid relationship. Scientific research is another interesting possibility. Currently, I'm enrolled in a Ph. D. program in Applied Mathematics so that helps.
I’m really good at
Math, baseball, massages, and apparently mojitos.
The first things people usually notice about me
I suppose I'm kinda tall, not really though. I'm rather Irish; my grandparents are from Ireland. Maybe that's it. Admittedly, I am lacking the Bostonian accent, or any accent for that matter.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I'll admit, most of my reading is done online, and is of the non-fiction variety. I like to keep abreast of what's happening in the world. I do have a few math / academic textbooks though ...

TV: House, Boston Legal, Firefly (we hardly knew ye), Scrubs, Venture Brothers, The Simpsons before they started sucking, Big Bang Theory, Archer, Law & Order

Movies: many, but a short list includes Goonies, The Usual Suspects, Office Space, The Sandlot, The Shining, The Big Lebowski (the dude abides), The Godfather

My taste in music is eclectic: I enjoy classical, techno, U2, whatever sounds good. I also tend to enjoy partaking in the singing at Red Sox games, though that's probably more attributable to the Sox than the music itself.
The six things I could never do without
The gym, computers(and all its internets), math, Wikipedia, my friends, and the Red Sox (and baseball in general).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
whatever comes to mind. Given my current role as grad student, I've math and physics are likely. Wikipedia is a very good thing, though far too often I find myself meandering from one link to the next randomly.
On a typical Friday night I am
I guess recently I've been working out or hitting up a bar with fellow grad students. You're welcome to join me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
"I killed a man in Reno, just to watch him die"
Also, I'm the shortest guy in my family at 6'.
Must be all the caffeine I had as a kid.
You should message me if
you don't believe trees have souls.
Seriously, OKC is telling me 13% of users believe they do.
