My self-summary
I want to learn everything about everything.

I strive for compassion and competence in everything I do, but most of the time, I just take clumsy stabs at life and hope everything turns out okay.

I love the Rangers/Mets/Bills, NYC (except for SI), Everton FC, scrambling through ruins, pinball, creamy stouts, big pinot noirs, Chinese calligraphy, typography, highland prairies.

I've traveled to 47 countries, couchsurfed in 27, hitchhiked in 21, skinny dipped in 19, bungee jumped in 10, lived in 4.

I want to be a net positive to the world; be a few inches taller so I wouldn't have so much trouble using the top shelves of cupboards and peepholes on doors; solve the Riemann hypothesis; see the PRC acknowledge and apologize for June Fourth.

If this page is any indication, I also seem to have a proclivity for making long lists.

On a typical Friday night I am
me. But on special occasions, I might be someone else.
You should message me if
You will share the grand unifying theory, or want to demonstrate your culinary prowess, or possess the charm of James Dean, or think Yogg is off the RNG cliff, or think a tattoo of U+pV is hot.

No Steve Jobs or Ayn Rand cult followers please.
