My self-summary
Pretty much born and raised here in St. Louis. Always trying to teach myself new things when I can. Piano and programming being my two big ones. I'm one of those guys who actually loved school, and I'm hoping to go back to college at some point. Maybe study physics or something?

I used to spend a lot of time running, but recent injuries put a stop to that. I'm trying to get back into it, and just avoid the whole "destroy your knee" thing from happening again. Which is good, because I missed running. Running around like an idiot with your dog at the dog park doesn't count as "running," apparently (it totally should, by the way).
What I’m doing with my life
Spending most of my day working as a software developer. It's really quite exciting. The constant thrill of knowing you could accidentally delete an entire database! Discovering all sorts of new ways to break a computer. I'm getting promoted to a more technical analyst role soon, so pretty excited about that!

Just got my own house, so that's pretty awesome. I think my sink started leaking yesterday. My furnace makes a loud pop noise every half hour or so. My lawn mower makes really, really weird noises when it's running. I learned that, no, Driveway Sealer does not come out of shoes or clothes. I'm really going to miss those pants.

Every day I try to practice my piano and get a little better. Hoping I can start working on writing my own songs, soon!
I’m really good at
Math and science. It's come in handy a few times. Usually it's best use is to throw out stupid random facts about math that has no bearing on the current situation. And I guess I'm alright at the piano.
The first things people usually notice about me
"Wh...Why is that guy talking to his dog like that. He knows it can't understand him right?"
"He's yelling at his computer. Why is he yelling at his computer?"
"He has his headphones in but he's not actually listening to anything. Why are his headphones still in? I don't understand"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV Shows: Merlin, Doctor Who, Archer, The Universe, Breaking Bad, Mythbusters. Don't really watch much TV, to be honest. If it's not on Netflix, I probably haven't seen it.

Movies: The Matrix, Boondock Saints, Pacific Rim, anything Star Wars or Star Trek related.

Books: The Stand, The Dark Tower, just about anything physics or space related

Food: All food! But seriously, I love a good Italian restaraunt

Music: Mostly rock/alternative, though I also love listening to just about any piano music as well (David Nevue and Philip Wesley being my two favorite piano players). Been listening to a lot of M83 and Perfect Circle, recently.
The six things I could never do without
1. Netflix. What did people do before Netflix. What did I do before Netflix? The fact that I can't remember bothers me.
2. Internet. What I probably used more of before Netflix was a thing.
3. My dog. She's starting to answer to "Little Shit," and I'm not sure how I feel about that. Proud? Yeah, proud.
4. Games are pretty great. Really awesome way to kill some free time. My favorite is losing to small children in any online game. It builds character.
5. Instant boxed food. I'm a horrible, horrible cook. I'm getting better, though!
6. My piano. Love playing it. Love annoying the hell out of my room mate with the thing. It's like a fun little game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why does my dog think the best method of waking me up in the morning is to claw me repeatedly across the face? Of all the ways to wake me up, I think this is literally the worst option.

How weird words are. Say 'water' over and over again for a few minutes. Tell me that's not weird.

Debating whether or not to go back to school to study astrophysics.

Who would win in a fight, Batman or Superman?
On a typical Friday night I am
I'll go out if my friends decide to go out. If not, I'm usually just watching way too much Mythbusters on Netflix or yelling at my piano like it's the piano's fault I can't play a song correctly. If I'm not doing any of that, I'm probably just sitting around playing games on the PC or something.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't whistle, and I can't snap. I'm also left-handed and can make a clover with my tongue. I nailed it in the gene pool lottery, apparently.
You should message me if
I wasn't kidding about that Batman vs Superman question. Who wins, and why is it Batman?

I love talking to new people, so message away!
