My self-summary
I'm a quirky, inventive, cheerful dude.

I love technology, (rocket)science, movies, little dogs that wear clothes and the Giants.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a recent transplant to Berkeley via Portland. I work at an animation studio as an IT Engineer. I do what I love and I love what I do and get to work with some of the most talented people in the whole cosmos.

I'm planning some field trips to other countries. Got any recommendations?

I'm also working on building up a nice collection of kitchen appliances.

I like to build weird things with technology. Like my 'Kanye's Family Circus' website: http://fc.frankenco.de/kanye
I’m really good at
I'm a master of computing.

I'm a great listener and armchair psychologist.

I'm good with musical instruments. I've been playing guitar for half my life, I've learned the basics of piano and ukulele, and have recently started playing drums. I also enjoy making computer music in Ableton.

Driving cars, actually using my blinkers and not running red lights.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books
Usually I'm reading up on technologies for work, but my favorite books are Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Snow Crash and Ishmael. I really like sci-fi and philosophy books.

Movies
I love anything by the Coen brothers. The Big Lebowski is my favorite movie of all time. I'll watch almost anything animated, especially if it's aimed towards grown-ups (Anomalisa, A Scanner Darkly, Akira, etc).

I have 4 film credits to my name (Coraline, Paranorman, Boxtrolls, Kubo) and I'm currently working on my 5th film.

TV
Top Three? Rick and Morty, Seinfeld, It's Always Sunny in Philidelphia.

I'm really enjoying Donald Glover's new show Atlanta.

Music
I'll listen to almost anything, but I'm a huge fan of remixed 90s pop/R&B songs.

All That Matters - My Boo - Say My Name - California Love - Jump Around

Podcasts
I listen to a lot of comedian's podcasts (Bill Burr, Joe Rogan, Doug Stanhope), TV show podcasts (Seincast, The X-Files Files), NPR podcasts (This American Life, The Moth, Radiolab) and some other tech and financial podcasts.

Food
Even though I'm pretty skinny, I absolutely love food. I'll eat almost anything. Except for pickles. Pickles can go fuck themselves.
The six things I could never do without
I literally could not live without computers, since that's what pays the bills.

I think I would be lost without the scientific method. I want empirical answers to life's problems, not just gut feeling and anecdotes.

Though I think we need to move beyond it as a species, I think I'll totally miss combustion engine powered cars. There's just something awesome about putting your foot down, hearing a growl and being thrown back in your seat.

If the world became completely humorless, I wouldn't want to live anymore. What's the point of life without laughing? I guess guys just wanna have fun too.

I also have a grand appreciation for simplicity, so I'm going to end this on number five.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Physics. After taking a ton of physics classes, it's changed the way I understand and view the world. These are the true laws that govern what we can do and become as a human race. Sometimes politics (and capitalism) just holds us back.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm usually having a drink or two at one of the many bars on campus at work. It's a great way to relax and get to know and connect with co-workers. After that I'm usually pretty beat, so it becomes Netflix and chill-with-the-dog night.

Saturday is usually my night out to go exploring, find a new place to eat, get lost on a trail or hang out at the beach.
