My self-summary
I am a very open-minded and difficult to offend type of person. I am something of a geek, and a jock, and a romantic. I have a pilot's license. Motorcycles are fun, though I sold mine.
What I’m doing with my life
Recently finished my PhD (computer vision at UCLA). I built robotic cars that drive themselves. And now I do many completely different things.
I’m really good at
Computer stuff, water polo, explaining things that I understand well, sex, making desserts, swimming, snowboarding.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall. I have a weird name.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(a) You Are Worthless, Federal Aviation Regulations/Aeronautical Information Manual, Home Comforts: The Art and Science of Keeping House, The Silmarillion

(b) Shawshank Redemption, Matrix (only the first), Star Wars Trilogy, LOTR

(c) A very eclectic mix - Orbital, Freq Nasty, Old 97's, Barenaked Ladies, Bjork, Billy Miles, U2, REM... I heard a new song on the radio the other night called "Coin-operated boy". I liked it.

(d) I've been enjoying food less lately since I can't really eat dairy anymore. But I still do sometimes anyway because I love cheese. Bacon is also incredibly good but not really allowed - Smart Bacon is surprisingly tasty, however. I make an incredibly delicious breakfast sandwich with eggbeaters, smart bacon, and fake cheese. Yes, it sounds terrible, but it's not. Also very good for you.

Six things I could never do without
My heart, my lungs, my brain, my liver, my spinal cord, my appendix. Oh damn, I can live without that last one. What is that thing for, anyway?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Wow, the response that was in here probably made a lot more sense before they changed the question without telling me. "Damn you Cupid!" (Waves fist ineffectually in air).

1. Rehydration. 2. Principal Component Analysis. 3. Flying. 4. The opposite sex. 5. Cars (Just to clarify - I'm not really a "car guy" - though I do like cars - it has to do with my research. See "What I'm doing with my life".) 6. What a scary, scary man John Ashcroft is.

On a typical Friday night I am
Typical is not really applicable.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Pretty much anything. Just ask.
You should message me if
You actually think something (doesn't matter what) could come of it.
The two of us
