My self-summary
Driven, eclectic lover of adventure
What I’m doing with my life
I'm into a wide variety of activities - by day I'm a bioengineer, searching for new energy technologies, previously ran a start-up that played with microbes.

Bought myself a 3d printer as a reward for finishing my dissertation. What should I make with it next?

Prefer to head outdoors on the weekends- climbing is my main passion, also whitewater kayaking, cross-country skiing and mountain and road biking. At home, it's brewing and experimenting in the kitchen.

A few years back, I was in the Army. Was a great experience for me, although I was very lucky. Lived in Germany, traveled all over Europe plus Morocco (for fun) and the Middle East (not for fun). The folks I met there showed me how great working with truly passionate people could be.
I’m really good at
The first things people usually notice about me
My ayes. (when I'm doing my Irish accent)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I go on and off book-reading kicks. Recently it's been Superforecasting, Antifragile, and Thinking Fast and Slow (still working on this one). Before that- Name of the Wind! So good.

Huge fan of well-written shows and movies, things like Cosmos, 30 Rock, Sherlock, In a World... Really well-done science fiction and fantasy stuff too - Black Mirror, Game of Thrones, Interstellar, Sunshine

Music-wise, Alt-J, New Pornographers, Boards of Canada, and Goat Rodeo come to mind. Especially enjoy listening to groups that really nail the boundary between two great types of music
The six things I could never do without
Outdoor adventures, creative challenges, my family, incomplete lists, nerdy board games
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The very large and the very small
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking a pint or two of the best beer I can get my hands on
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I disarmed roadside bombs for a few months while deployed to Iraq 05-06. It was an intense, formative experience
