My self-summary
I've lived in LA for the last 8 years. I like cycling, horseback riding, and trying new restaurants. I'm pretty open and accepting of most things.

I have a pretty dark and dry sense of humour. I like Colbert; I hate Will Ferrell.

I like alliteration. I like chiaroscuro. Which seems kind of like an odd combination now that I think about it, but I've already entered it so I can't take it back.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an electrical engineer. I like working in start-up companies. I design electronics and write software.
I’m really good at
- Logic
- Stubbing my foot on random furniture (I always wear shoes).
- Making creme brulee (see pictures...)
- Listening
- Over-analyzing

Brave New World, Lolita, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Perfume, Shiniez

I like it when people do what they say they are going to do.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- New ideas for projects I would like to work on. Some are interesting and could have potential, others suck and go no where. I think the concept of failure is really important and we don't emphasize it enough in our society... You learn a lot from success, but if you only ever succeed, you are not learning new things. You are just confirming what you already knew.

- Dwolla seems like an interesting payment method and I would like to see it adopted more widely in LA. I would love to not have to carry cash ever again.

- Dunning-Kruger Effect
On a typical Friday night I am
Ideal:
- Dinner with friends at a new restaurant
- comedy show at a small, personal venue
- a rowdy, machiavellian, inebriated game of Settlers of Catan.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I get weak in the knees for thigh highs :0)
