My self-summary
I would describe myself as a hopeless romantic on the inside and a realist on the outside.

I am an Robotics Engineer.

I have worked for the Canadian Space Agency, multiple robotics companies, and started two small startups. I love what I do, and feel great about my work, though this can translate to long hours.

I am not one for sports, and mostly smile and nod when they are discussed. Simply wasn't in my upbringing. That's not to say that I am inactive, I go to the gym or rock climb at least twice a week.

I enjoy the outdoors, good books, and friends.

Bonus points for knowing what my user name means...
(It is an uncommon symbol for reality-as-lie)
What I’m doing with my life
Making Robots, starting start-ups, consulting, loving life!

But the main reason I am here, is to meet people!
The first things people usually notice about me
I am fascinated by mostly everything. I love to discuss, question and wonder. I like to meet people and hear about their stories, and what perspectives they have. I also absorb knowledge like a sponge :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Mars Trilogy - Kim Stanley
Abhorsen Trilogy - Garth Nix
Ender's Game (can't wait for the movie!)
The Fountainhead - Ayn Rand (though I do not agree with everything she writes)

I actually spend quite a bit of time reading, and don't really want to list them all here. Ask me, I have probably at least heard of it.

Mad Men - Great vibe, lovely characters

Recently been listing to lots of Halestorm, love the strong female lead. Generally though, Jazz, Rock and electronica, depending on my mood.

Favorite combination: A glass of scotch, Jazz and bitter-sweet literature.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.
- Edgar Allan Poe
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love older tech, so I write with a fountain pen, and carry a pocket watch. More of a quirk, but hey.

message me if you want to chat, or poke fun at my beard ;)
