My self-summary
I'm a smartass, I'm loud, and I curse like a sailor. I've been known to go bowling with vegetables in the supermarket and plaster fliers all over town for a social experiment.

I sat in a cube for a long time - a stifling, drab, and unimaginative prison. I'm not doing that shit ever again. I split my time between running two websites, school, and research. Specifically as applied to artificial intelligence.

Tolle is my spiritual kung-fu. I won't kill things but I eat meat. My love language is touch. I value loyalty.

I taught last semester which was incredibly fun. There's nothing better then regaling a class full of kids about Borges and the library of hell derivative when it has nothing to do with what you're teaching.

I'm a cinephile. I programmed a major film festival in Colorado a couple of years ago.

I love to cook and eat somewhat healthy.

Two of my favorite quotes: Bukowski - "It's not that I don't like people, I just fell better when they're not around." McCarthy - "McCarthyism is Americanism with it's sleeves rolled." Eat shit pinkos.

I love art and wish I could draw... Alas, I am only creative with words. I also do not drink or do drugs.

Via Queens, NY.

You:
You live an active lifestyle and take care of yourself.
You like to cook and have refined taste.
You can enjoy going to the symphony.
You'll watch oddball, foreign, and arthouse films and enjoy many of them. Yeah, some of them suck.
You can laugh at crassness and enjoy it.
You read.
You are highly intelligent.
You are emotionally stable and have your shit together. I do not go for girly girls.
You are NOT looking for someone to fill the hole in your life.
You do NOT watch hours of netflix every day.
What I’m doing with my life
Research + teaching + daily meditation. I go to the gym 4-5 times a week. .. wishing I had more time to read things that aren't textbooks.

I've started playing racquetball. Now I'm going to have to wear sweaters draped over my shoulders and join a country club.
I’m really good at
being blunt and saying inappropriate things... and chess.
The first things people usually notice about me
They can't figure out what nationality I am. Don't worry, I'm white.. but I will tell your racist grandfather I'm black.
