My self-summary
I'm an ex-academic who is still getting used to working in industry. I'm enjoying having weekends and time off after work when I don't have to think about work.

When I have free time I split it between giving my brain time off (i.e. watching netflix, or reading), feeding my news habit, enjoying the outdoors, or probably a half dozen other things some of which you can find hints of elsewhere in this profile.

When I'm outside I tend to bring my camera along to capture what I find interesting, or lovely. If you would like to see the pictures I've taken just ask, I have them posted on deviant art. Though right now I have a big backlog of photos to edit and post which I'm going to try to fix soon.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently working my way out of the my shell which reformed after moving from Florida to here. The most of the rest of my time is spent going out out looking for good photographs to take, enjoying a book, movie, or game (board games and video games). Also I'm usually up to find something new that's fun or interesting to do.
I’m really good at
Wandering, how else are you going to find places you haven't been?
Math (It's what my PhD was in).
Cooking, I'll admit to using cookbooks but only as a rough guide, heading off trail frequently yields tastier results.
Working with my hands, I like to make random things like the FSM pictured or one of the bookshelves I have.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sometimes crazy hair or the fact I'm wandering around almost in a daze, which is usually caused by me trying to figure something out.

Six things I could never do without
Assuming the basics are provided...
Pencil, Paper, Computer, Internet, Books, something new to figure out or learn.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make my cooking better, how to make round pizzas and why I can't, work (but only during work hours).
On a typical Friday night I am
At the gym. After that I roughly plan my weekend then go to bed.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes use of a clue-by-four is needed for me to see the obvious.
You should message me if
If you like conversations that wander like a drunken professor walks; randomly drifting between the ivory tower and the gutter.
Or if you're happy to set out without a plan and just see where random chance takes you.
Or if you have a question you want answered, though I won't guarantee a correct or even sensical response.
Or if you know which way the white rabbit with the pocket watch went (the bugger stole my watch).
Or if you'd like to look beyond this gossamer shadow cast by the expressible.
The two of us
