My self-summary
I'm a hard-drinking, super nerdy, atheist, left-liberal, feminist, anti-racist, anti-classist, ethically non-monogamous, know-it-all, geeky, GGG, chain e-cigarette smoking, melancholic wannabe hipster.

I'm aiming to do some good in a profoundly dark time.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a quantitative reporter and associate markets editor in the magical world of new media. I make a lot of charts, maps, and rankings, and I help my colleagues write better posts about the inner workings of late capitalism. Sometimes I get to ramble about something cool in math, statistics, or economics. It's a good job.
I’m really good at
Math, logic, teaching, blogging, singing bass, obsessing about things, hating on the kyriarchy, and melting into a pile of goo whenever i pet a cat.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair. My mediocre taste in clothing. The fact that I'm probably talking to myself and gesticulating wildly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(a) Big piles of sci-fi, fantasy, political science, and history. Recent sci fi includes a bunch of Neil Stephenson, Charles Stross, Octavia Butler, and Iain Banks. Also just finished Trekonomics. Currently slowly working my way through The Three Body Problem and Masha Gerson's "The Man With No Face"

(b) All time favorite movies: Jurassic Park, Back to the Future, the even numbered Star Trek movies, and anything made by Pixar. Recent favorites: Rogue One is a flawed but p good version of the Star Wars movie we need, and Get Out should win best picture next year.

(c) Star Trek, cynical comedies, and epic well-crafted dramas. Recently watched Veep, just did my second watching of Westworld and slowly rewatching Deep Space Nine. Always looking for good suggestions for the next movie or show to watch.

(d) An awkward mix of classical, 90s alternative, and vaguely electronic pop. Will always listen to Nine Inch Nails, Radiohead, and Bach. Recently discovered Run The Jewels because of a Richard Spencer getting punched to music video and I feel sad I wasn't on that earlier. I've also had Kanye's "All Of The Lights" stuck in my head for about three months.

(e) Sushi, curry, hamburgers, pad kimao, fried chicken, pizza

Also, for the super nerdly nerds out there, I've probably spent a year of my life playing the games made by the good people of BioWare, Firaxis, and Blizzard.
Six things I could never do without
coffee, friendship, my body, information, cats, decent data visualization tools
I spend a lot of time thinking about
math, data sources, argument structure, artificial intelligence, sex, politics and history, video games, the shape of the new trumpian world

Also what I'm going to do once everything is run by robots.
On a typical Friday night I am
I take an extreme approach to weekends. I'm either lazy and watching Netflix until 2 am or bar hopping until I can barely find my way home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm hopelessly attracted to complex situations.

I use bayes' rule to roughly estimate how dates are going.
You should message me if
You liked what was happening above, and you're not a horrible person.

Not being horrible is also a necessary condition.

You should probably also be GGG and not overly tied to monogamy as a thing.
