My self-summary
I'm a British gentleman, though I have lived abroad all my life. I was born in Bahrain (in the Middle East) to English parents and have lived all over since. I became a naturalized US Citizen 2 years ago (USA! USA! USA!).

I graduated a few years ago after finishing 4 years of Clemson Chemical Engineering. I just bought a house in Lexington - it gets kind of echoey in here.

INTP, for those that are into that sort of thing.
What I’m doing with my life
Supermodel/astronaut/Nobel laureate

I'm an engineer for an automotive parts company; I spend most of my day having incredibly complex and technical discussions with people in Europe who do not speak English. I was recently congratulated for my "unvaluable contribution to the project."
I’m really good at
Trivia.. If its useless, I know it. Can't seem to get on Jeopardy, unfortunately.
The first things people usually notice about me
My accent - a combination of English and American (so-called "Transatlantic").
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything Chuck Palahniuk, science non-fiction

Movies: Wes Anderson movies (especially Grand Budapest Hotel), American Beauty, Casablanca, Amelie, A Very Long Engagement, Requiem for a Dream, Donnie Darko, Spirited Away, A Clockwork Orange (and anything else Kubrick)

Shows: Arrested Development, Sherlock, Homeland, Archer, Top Gear (everything else on the BBC for that matter), White Collar, SNL.

Music: indie music.. and hardcore rap. Death Cab For Cutie and Lil' Wayne - Still waiting for them to go on tour together.

Favorite food - steak au poivre. It combines 5 of my favorite things: filet mignon, pepper, heavy cream, cognac, and fire.
The six things I could never do without
1. The flash of inspiration when solving a complex problem
2. Crunchy leaves in Fall
3. Podcasts, especially This American Life
4. Snooze button
5. The Economist
6. That moment your heart skips when you realize you have a connection
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Work, why American TV channels put subtitles on British people speaking English, and giraffes. Mostly giraffes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Downtown Columbia.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to write mediocre erotic fiction under a pen name.
