My self-summary
I'm a physics graduate student at Stony Brook University. I'm orginally from upstate NY (Glens Falls / Lake George area).

I like science and scepticism. I enjoy podcasts like the Skeptics Guide to the Universe and Kevin Rose's Foundation. I am very interested in artificial intelligence, deep learning and philosophy of mind.

I'm very honest and open. I have the INTJ/INTF personality type.

I own a few bitcoin and find the concept of cryptocurrency fascinating.

Things I do for fun: reading, running, downhill skiing and exploring.

Would like to find a group to play board games with. Also planning to get into indoor rock climbing soon.
What I’m doing with my life
I do computer simulations of water molecules. I've done a lot of programming in FORTRAN, and more recently, Python.

Trying to make the transition into machine learning / data science and get out of academia.
I’m really good at
Organizing stuff and thinking sceptically and analytically. Also, pointing out constellations, judging the monetary value of used books, and knowing which direction is North.

Other than that, I'm pretty humble about my abilities. I'm good at many things, but how 'good' is really relative. For instance, compared to most people I'm good at math, but relative to people in my field, I'm not. I also juggle better than most people, but I wouldn't say I'm 'really good' at it.
The first things people usually notice about me
People probably notice that I'm white, have glasses and male, and then make some judgement. People usually think I'm really shy and smart. However both of these things are not always true.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
One of my favorite books is "The Great Gatsby", which I've read three times.

Some of my other favorite books are "Neuromancer", "Snow Crash", "The Moon is Harsh Mistress", and "Cat's Cradle". I like hard sci-fi and cyberpunk/transhumanist fiction. I read maybe a book a month at most, but am trying to read more. I read a fair amount of nonfiction as well, right now I'm reading "the Blank Slate" by Stephen Pinker.

A few of my favorite movies are "Blade Runner", "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and "Dr. Strangelove".

I've listened to a very wide variety of music over the years. Right now I listen to a lot of electronica (drum and bass, triphop, electropop) and post rock. Some random bands that I like are CHVRCHES, Metric, Third Eye Blind, God is an Astronaut, The Postal Service... the list could go on for a while...
The six things I could never do without
My glasses , my watch, my phone, adequate blood sugar, adequate sleep, and water
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I've been trying to shift my thought patterns to spend more time thinking about accomplishing near term goals (especially with my work), and bothering my self as much with politics and news (a constant struggle).
On a typical Friday night I am
The most common Friday night for me is staying at home "wasting time online" and maybe doing a bit of reading. However I also go out approximately once a month to various social events on Fridays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used the Blendr app and the Tinder app , they both sucked.
