My self-summary

What I’m doing with my life
All software development! All the time!

No but also reading and Netflix binging. Love discovering new good food, too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have really straight teeth as a result of wearing braces for about forever. One was literally sideways when I was in kindergarten, so anything was an improvement. Also my glasses. Probably beard.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to work Hamilton lyrics into conversations.
On a typical Friday night I am
Well, it's a Friday night right now and I'm filling out this profile. So.

But generally going, you know, somewhere. Whiskey is good.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Never seen Casablanca? That's not private but it is deeply shameful.
You should message me if
You like Shakespeare.

You have an opinion on the ordering of Doctors/Companions.

You want to watch Star Wars in Machete Order sometime.

You know a place better than The Franklin Room for interesting whiskeys/whiskies (I Wikipedia'd the spelling of those two and couldn't have told you the difference otherwise).

Anything else here strikes you. I always like new friends/interesting conversations.
