My self-summary
I host a damn good party, I like to go out with friends (especially when there is live music involved), and I'm open to trying new activities.
What I’m doing with my life
Programming by day. The plan is to start a company in a few years, but for now, I'm acquiring the skills I'll need and enjoying the NY life.
I’m really good at
Breaking ice, putting myself in other people's shoes, and debating. Not the "debate club" kind of debating, but the random discussion over good beer variety. I also take pride in my programming and my musical covers and compositions.
The first things people usually notice about me
If you meet me in a group, you'll probably notice my witty interjections. If you meet me one on one, I'd like to think my honesty and rationalism stand out the most. If you see me from across the room, you'll only notice my roguishly good looks, but if you come over to talk to me, I'll give you more to remember me by.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Everything from Bluegrass/Folk to Symphonic Metal, to instrumental acoustic guitar, to underground hip-hop, to pop punk, to ... (just gonna stop here)

Movies: comedy and action mostly. Some good ones off the top of my head are Clerks, The Dark Knight, Dr. Horrible's Singalong Blog, and Gran Torino, but my movie tastes are more defined by what I don't like, which is basically most movies that are described as "Inspirational". Also, I love good standup. Mitch Hedberg, Eddie Izzard, Louis CK, Tim Minchin, and Steve Hughes are my current favorites.

Shows: HIMYM, Sherlock, Community, Brooklyn 9-9, Doctor Who, Chuck, Babylon 5, Farscape, Burn Notice, Bones, Game of Thrones, Buffy, Firefly, and every other Joss Whedon TV show.

Books: Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, 1984, Brave New World, Watchmen, His Dark Materials (The Golden Compass Trilogy), The Abhorson Trilogy, Ender's Game, Dune, most Heinlein

Food: Food. all of it. (minus horseradish/wasabi)
Six things I could never do without
good friends, the internet, my health, my wits and really I think that is it. (booze, my guitar, sex, and cuddling just barely missed the cutoff, but they really just make a good life better)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Part of being an engineer is wanting to improve and/or fix stuff. Whenever I'm in a thinking mood, I turn that attitude towards the big issues. Politics, religion, the economy, etc. I have some strong opinions about some of that stuff (I'm a fairly liberal atheist), but I know how to have a strong opinion without believing it as fact. In practice, I get along pretty well with anyone that follows the golden rule.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out drinking with friends, on skype with an old friend (potentially also playing video games depending on the friend), or just curled up in bed watching a TV show if it's been a long week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If you wanna make me tear up, show me a video of a deaf person hearing for the first time thanks to modern medicine. It's my emotional kryptonite.
You should message me if
If you are sapiosexual.
If you think chatting over drink or a meal is a way better way to get to know someone than yelling at them over club music.
If you think that blues dancing is sexier than grinding.
And especially if you think it's a shame that people don't smile at each other on the streets and subways of NYC.
The two of us
