My self-summary
Student of the mind tryin'a get by. Not big on mystique. Not a troubled boy.

This place has become a wasteland of spambots. Hit me up if you want to complain about that and make out. #zagOnEm
What I’m doing with my life
Researcher by trade: statistics, programming, literature reviews, writing, that sorta nonsense. Currently at a post-doc at Rice, the future is A WONDROUS MYSTERY.
I’m really good at
I dunno, Jenga? Or Bucket. Stump? No, I suck at Stump.

Improvising in life, but still overthinking it.

Introspection and discussion.

Most stringed instruments.
The first things people usually notice about me
Expressive face.

Tall.

Good laugh?

Am actually a gorilla.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Patrick Rothfuss is my hero. Gettin' real sick of George R. R. Martin's shit. Not as well read as I once was, because I read all day and my brain hurts.

Movies and TV: I dunno, name a bunch of shit, we'll see if our references overlap.

Music: Glass Animals' "How To Be A Human Being" is the best album this decade. Come at me. I have a single playlist with 400+ artists on Spotify called "Pile of Good Things". If you like any of Florence + The Machine, Cake, or Saul Williams we'll probably get along.

Food: I never, ever tire of sushi. When I travel, I prefer the everyday eats they sell in the subways and food carts. I cook often and love toying with the recipes to learn about what works and what doesn't, so some meals are fantastic, while others turn to sludge. /shrug
Six things I could never do without
Good company.
Computertron.
The infinite library of the internet.
Cold water.
White noise.
A car. I need that freedom.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Empathy and privilege.

Why brains be like they do.

What's your lowest stat? Mine's dexterity.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing whatever. Wanna join?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My darkest fear is that this is some kind of Truman Show and everybody's just nodding encouragement at whatever shitty decisions I make, laughing and laughing and laughing along at home.

I'm probably just a natural language simulation.
You should message me if
you actually enjoy your own life, but also don't take it too seriously.
you're a dork, nerd, or geek, but you're not bitter about it.
you subtly dance in place in public, even when you can't quite hear the beat of the shop music.
you want to waste hours analyzing how things and stuff work and junk.
you can form the message entirely in haiku.
you're broken, but recovered.
you are errant, chasing windmills, and have a story to share.
