My self-summary
I have this mason jar that I keep in my head, and I store the memories from some of my most prized experiences in it. When nothing else is going on, I pull the mason jar out and dump its contents onto the table in front of me. Spending so much time looking at my collection, I've noticed a few themes:

1. None of the memories involve "hanging with friends at a bar" or anything like that.
2. Most of the memories are from circumstances that were just slightly out of my comfort zone.
3. Most of the memories involve a feeling of newly found freedom to do something I hadn't realized I could do before.

I enjoy going on adventures to mysterious or unknown places. Urban exploration, night hikes, people watching, etc are some of my favorite activities. I've also recently gotten into paragliding which is quickly becoming my main weekend activity. I'm most attracted to people who are creative, open-minded, and playful. My favorite conversations usually involve brainstorming about creative projects.
What I’m doing with my life
I run a robotics company that is about to launch a new product that has been several years in the making. Needless to say my work constitutes most of my waking hours, and I love it. Previously, I was an engineer at NASA working on spacecraft mechanism design, and I was a pilot and engineer for a robotic submarine durring a 3-month long Antarctic expedition. With time off, I enjoy paragliding, exploring the Bay Area on my zodiac boat, urban exploration, and building stuff I thought about in the shower.
I’m really good at
Showing excitement, designing hardware, interacting with children, swimming underwater.
The first things people usually notice about me
I tend to smile a lot and be very animated. I seek the same.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have phases, but generally I like anything that required an elaborate imagination to create.
Six things I could never do without
1. The promise of an unknown future
2. Being able to dictate my own sleep schedule
3. The ability to pursue my own ideas
4. Ice cream
5. A good set of tools
6. Places to be explored
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
In the lab working with my team. I stay up extremely late, so after-midnight adventures are not unheard of. If I'm not doing work, I'm likely to be exploring an unknown place by foot or boat while listening to music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can recite the lyrics to most 90's chick rock- Alanis Morissette, Jewel, Natalie Imbruglia, Ace of Base, The Cardigans, Fiona Apple, Sheryl Crow... you name it... My mind must have been in record mode during that time.
You should message me if
Straight to the point- I just got out of a long-term relationship and I'm probably not looking for anything extremely serious right off the bat. I'd like to have fun and date casually for a while. That being said, I only want to spend time with people whom I can connect with emotionally and philosophically. Message me if you think we might hit it off. I'm open minded.
The two of us
