My self-summary
Programmer, musician, comedian, and general übernerd with a lot of hobbies.

音楽をきいて, プログラミングして, 文章と曲を書いて, 野球をするのが好きだ。寝るのが苦手 (不眠症だ)。二年間ぐらい大阪に住んでいました。日本語能力試験三級できたけど二級できると思う。でも、最近日本語練習できなかってる。
What I’m doing with my life
Programming computers and working on becoming an indie rock star. Any lulls are taken up by any of the interests below or wasting time on the internet.
I’m really good at
A lot.

* Playing/writing music - my current band is The Pillowcases, we play covers of music from FLCL
* Working with computers - I am the guy everyone always begs to fix their computer (you have no idea how much porn I accidentally find on people's computers). I am a professional programmer!
* Math - published author in the field of computer science (Erdos #3).
* Not being a huge nerd all the time - OK, I am obviously a huge nerd, but there's a lot more to life than that.
* Cooking - I can make a braised short rib that would make Morrissey renounce veganism.
* Debate - I love arguing politics and public policy, but I'm not stupid enough to bore people that don't give a shit or bring up politics when inappropriate
* Japanese - I spent two years working in Japan (in IT) and gained a conversational level of proficiency.
