My self-summary
I (think) I'm a fun person to hangout with, especially if you like meaningful conversations and/or learning. I live with a domestic long-haired tuxedo cat; he and I have extremely deep conversations from topics such as "have you seen my keys?" to "why are you chewing on the most expensive cords I have?". I'm more of an indoors person than out, but if the weather is right, I wouldn't mind going around town doing random things. I'm as close to my family as one can get when they're halfway around the world :)

I don't have regular interests such as da Bears, or going camping, or warm weather. I am, however, able to tell you exactly how an airplane works (even though I'm not a pilot or aerospace engineer), or figure out how to drive a stick shift car after not driving one for ten years. So yes, I'm a little quirky, but not (terribly) socially awkward.
What I’m doing with my life
By day I write software. By night I'm out saving the world by building orphanages, digging wells, and putting up wind turbines. Only one of those statements are true.
I’m really good at
Technology, listening, eating, and coming up with random, creative ideas on solving problems. I like to pretend that I can cook as well.
The first things people usually notice about me
The fact that I look like I'm 19 (I was carded in 2012 for buying a cigarette lighter). I swear I really was born in '85, though. Then it's probably my American accent even though I grew up in a foreign land.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll leave books, movies and music to a later discussion, but I'll say this: I'll eat almost anything that doesn't eat me first. I wish I was cool and loved things like a good IPA beer, or wine, but I really dislike the taste of alcohol.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:

1. Cellphone
2. Laptop/PC of some kind
3. Good friends
4. Intellectual stimulation
5. Sleep
6. Adventure
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my future, the future of mankind, how to do the most work with the fewest lines of code. Also, what's for lunch. Or dinner.
On a typical Friday night I am
at home watching TV or finishing up work. On more a-typical Friday nights I'm out with friends. Mostly I'm an old man and I'm in bed by 11 PM, though.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing comes to mind. I'm pretty much an open book, so ask if you have specific questions.
You should message me if
Well, you shouldn't message me if more than one person has described you as "psychopathic", "deranged", or "murderous". Other than that, it's a free country, so go ahead and send that message. I don't bite; I leave that to my cat.
