My self-summary
I grew up in the east bay and moved into the City 12 years ago and still love it. I watch a lot of TV, but steer clear of reality shows and other trash.

I'm very very much into music, however I've never wanted to make music myself. I guess I've always felt there was enough (bad) shit out there without the need for me to contribute to the pile. However, I've tried to contribute in my own way by doing live recordings at shows (kinda geeky, I know).
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a software developer, freelancing here and there as well as working on my own projects.
I’m really good at
Walking on my hands.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music:I used to listen to a lot of indie rock, but my taste changed a few years ago. There's a few bands of the indie (Post-Rock, Math-Rock, Shoegaze, etc) variety I will always love, like Electrelane, Pinback, and Drive Like Jehu (my all time favorite band), but really, I'm all about Electronic/Ambient/Downtempo/Psychill stuff now. It's really been an interesting time for me musically, as some stuff that's been out for years that I never delved into is still fairly new to me. Some favorites of late include Bonobo, Jon Hopkins, Orbital, Royksopp, Shpongle, Daft Punk, Boards of Canada, Tosca, Anything on Ultimae (Carbon Based Lifeforms, Aes Dana, Solar Fields, etc), Entheogenic, Gramatik, Lemon Jelly, Air, Junior Boys, Pogo, Massive Attack, Fukkk Offf, Erlend Øye, Portishead, Tycho, Fischerspooner, Blue Sky Black Death, etc.

I'm into all kinds of movies, from action blockbusters to foreign films to quirky independent ones to hard hitting documentaries. But let me just get this out of the way first:I don't like Wes Anderson films. I know I'm in the minority, but his movies just don't do anything for me. Some favorites include:The Star Wars Trilogy (original version), Pulp Fiction, Children of Men, Reservoir Dogs, Memento, The Big Lebowski, REC, Contact, Watchmen, Brick, Cloverfield, District 9, Religulous, Zombieland, John Carpenter flicks (The Thing, Prince of Darkness, etc)), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Lola Rennt, LOTR, just to name a few.

TV: I (glady) cut the cord more than 5 years ago. Current Favorites: The Expanse, Legion, Mr. Robot, Game of Thrones, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Better Call Saul, The Man in the High Castle, Sense8, Fargo, The Daily Show, True Detective, Shameless (US), The Ricky Gervais Show, Black Mirror, Hell on Wheels, American Horror Story, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia
Past Favorites: Cosmos, Breaking Bad, The Colbert Report, The Newsroom, The Fall, Trailer Park Boys, Party Down, Fringe, Entourage, Deadwood, Battlestar Galactica, Rome, Freaks & Geeks, Firefly, Life on Mars, Family Guy, Futurama, The Wire (The best show of all time).
Also, I've been watching a few choice YouTube channels a lot lately, like Sixty Symbols, Computerphile, PBS Space Time, VSauce, Veritaserium, etc.

Video Games(this should be a thing): Countless hours in Skyrim, the entire Assassin's Creed series, Alien Isolation (scariest game EVER), Portal (obsessed), Fallout 3&4, The Talos Principle, Dragon Age, Mirror's Edge, Bioshock, Dead Space, etc.

Books: Currently reason The Expanse series. You Can't Win (Jack Black), The Wheel of Time (Robert Jordan), Snow Crash & Cryptonomicon (Neal Stephenson), anything by Richard Dawkins or Jon Krakauer, The Stand (Stephen King), Contact (Carl Sagan), Red Dwarf, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles (ignore the hype, they're really good!), Empire of the East (Fred Saberhagen), to name a few.
Six things I could never do without
Gadgets (Android phone & tablet, computers, etc.)
Alone time
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The looming wave of mass unemployment due to automation, and the possible remedies to prevent it (only one I know of is Universal Basic Income).
You should message me if
The first thing you look at in a profile is music and you like what you see in mine.

You have enough sense not to take selfies in front of a mirror while staring into the phone you're using to take the picture.
