My self-summary
I want to help improve the world (whatever the heck that means) while having decent amounts of fun (however the heck I can) in the company of awesome people (and this is where you might come in!)

Also, yes, I love parentheses.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently limited in my employment opportunities (f*ck immigration law, man). So I drive for Uber and Lyft. At least I get to interact with a lot of people, many of whom are actually quite interesting. I think this limitation will be solved in 3-6 months.

When I'm not driving around, I like reading rationality/effective altruism stuff, keeping up with world news, and hanging out with friends that share an interest in this particular area of geekdom.
I’m really good at
Remembering facts about the world and details about things ─ I'm a walking encyclopedia and I crave trivia.

Making questionable puns.

Striking up conversations with strangers.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music - classic rock. If it's from the 50s to 80s, there's a good chance I'll like it. Recently I've been opening up a bit to more pop-like music ─ like that super catchy Taylor Swift tune. Yes, *that* one, y'know?

Food - generally speaking, I don't like spicy food. I should try to eat healthier, I currently eat too much junk food.

Books - my most recent favorite book is a webseries called Worm. It's a dark, long-ass story about how morality is conflicted and confusing. Oh, and there's superpowers too.

Movies - I like lots of movies and love only a few. I really liked Doctor Strange, not only because it's trippy but because the guy is a great skeptic ─ he sees evidence of magic and *immediately believes it*.

Shows - I'm not really into TV, but I did watch and like House MD. The guy is a lovely bastard.
Six things I could never do without
Bad jokes
Interesting, new-to-me ideas
Learning ─ there is *SO* much that I'd like to know more about!
Physical affection ─ I will hardly ever reject a hug and I can constantly be found cuddling with friends
Sleeping quite a lot
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What kind of a world do I want there to be?
What is the best way to turn this world into that world?
What is the best way for me to help with this transformation?
How can I do that and also keep/improve my own happiness?

Also, the New England Patriots, mostly during the NFL season.
On a typical Friday night I am
Visiting my geeky friends in New Hampshire or Boston, so that we can share knowledge and improve our views of the world.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I won't ever admit it... EVER!
You should message me if
You're a smart, poly-compatible person in either NH or the Boston area. Bonus points if all my talk of improving the world, rationality and effectiveness interests you.

If you're a guy, do bear in mind that I've only recently come out as bi to myself, I still haven't even dated any guys. So feel free to message me, but know that I'll likely take things extra slowly.
