My self-summary
I value people more than experiences or places. With the right people I enjoy being outdoors or inside, watching a movie or playing laser tag, tubing down the river or playing board games.

I am very dependable and I try not to take things too seriously even though sometimes I will stress out over something really dumb.

I enjoy witty humor, I have collected a set of funny pictures and quotes and whenever I'm feeling blue I will read them and be awesome instead.

I taught introduction to computer science in a high school while I was going through college, I have always valued education very highly and teaching the class was very rewarding. Currently I'm volunteering mentoring kids for the FIRST LEGO League robotics competition.

I am INFJ with a very strong preference on introversion and judgement.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a computer engineer and I work in a product that is used to test lots of different things including cell phones and tablets.

I also enjoy swimming quite a bit and go to the gym regularly. I like eating out regularly and that's the way I keep my weight down.
I’m really good at
I'm really good helping people, I have been told I'm very empathic (from empathy, not emphasis).

Not really good in an Olympic sense, but I'm a fairly competent swimmer. I kind of wish I had practiced my whole life because I feel I could have done well in competition during my college years (instead went with basketball which I love, but I suck at).

I am also fairly good at a few video games. I enjoy playing quite a bit and I feel it can be a very fun social activity.

I am also a fairly good with computers. I enjoy getting the occasional "hey, my computer is broken, could you fix it?" call and the oohs and aahs after I fix the problem. It boosts my ego :P
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes and my hands.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
My favorite books of all time are:
La Casa de Usted Y Otros Viajes -- Jorge Ibargüengoitia
Galactic North -- Alastair Reynolds

Currently I'm almost finished with Beautiful Ruins now. The book is amazing but a tad depressing. I usually read before going to sleep and I have spent a couple sleepless nights thinking about the pointlessness of life.

Movies: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Star Wars, documentaries in general.

Music: A little bit of everything. Some of the artists who I currently like are Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Decemberists, Marea and Old 97's.

Food: Mostly everything, I love fruits (mango, pineapple, blackberries, blueberries, guava, mandarin oranges being some of my favorites), BBQ, lasagna, quesadillas. The only things I really don't like are onions (specially uncooked) and spicy (hot) food.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What small project I am going to work on next. I like having a few non-work-related projects that I can work on in my own time.

My latest project is a small Android app that determines the strength of each team and determines how good a game will be for any given day depending on the teams that are playing.
On a typical Friday night I am
At the gym, at home playing video games or out with friends having dinner.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was a kid I wanted to fly a plane when I grew up, but I thought that being a pilot wasn't grand enough so I really wanted to be a co-pilot. It had more letters so it had to be more important, right?
