My self-summary
"If you're not failing every now and again, it's a sign you're not doing anything very innovative" - Woody Allen

I prefer meeting people to speculating about them. Food is a big deal to me, but in an omnidirectional way. I'm into everything from fried chicken to foie gras

A couple of times a week I'll run a couple of miles. This is a cool city for running, what with all the monuments and and the potomac and whatnot. I think that marathons are a very admirable way for people to injure themselves

I went two years without internet access in my home. The first year was to see if I could do it, and the second was for the hell of it. I got a lot of reading done and learned to cook some fun things

Me and some friends play nerdy board games irregularly but frequently. Things like Settlers of Catan, Arkham Horror, etc

Sometimes I have a beard. This is one of those times

tl;dr preocuppied with food; runner; luddite; nerd & dork

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Software design patterns. Food. The distance between perception and reality. Board game strategies
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I view OKC as a platform for generating qualified leads. A precursor to actual human interaction
You should message me if
You have faith in something and are omnivorous. Being tall doesn't hurt. I'm Catholic and 6'2", for reference

I appreciate people who are passionate about their work, whatever that might be. I also appreciate people who choose their words carefully

Oh! And if you want to discuss something in my profile for its own sake without romantic intent, that's cool too. Should you, say, want to talk about how weird and cool "Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki" is, staring longingly into one another's eyes is not a prerequisite
