My self-summary
“What you're thinking is what you're becoming.”
― Muhammad Ali

Living life with intention and principle. I strive to be fully present during each moment.

Growing up I was the kind of kid who found out you can only check out 40 books at a time from the library. Lifelong fallibilist and all about the growth mindset. Trying things and failing often is good for you in the long run.
What I’m doing with my life
Software engineer who works on drones. Learning about machine learning. (So meta)

On a weight gain regimen as of last year. (I'm 155 right now, targeting 180) If you're into weight lifting I'm down to train together, especially if you got your deadlift technique down!

Learning everything I can about biology, neuroscience, and economics.
I’m really good at
Nice saves. Walking. Seriously, I can walk for hours.
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Rainer Maria Rilke, Douglas Coupland, Jelaluddin Rumi, Dune by Frank Herbert, Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. The Machine Stops by E.M. Forster. David Foster Wallace. I'm about to start Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami.

I love to read about psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy of mind.

Collateral, American Beauty, True Grit, Matchstick Men, Minority Report, Insomnia, The Italian Job, My Blueberry Nights, The Pursuit of Happyness, Secret in their Eyes (Argentina), Inception, 2046 (Hong Kong), Ex Machina, and Whiplash.

Billions, Transparent, Mr. Robot, Homeland, Mad Men, House of Cards, The Mentalist, Seinfeld, and Workaholics.

Any kind of food.
The six things I could never do without
Family & friends, sunsets, good memories, a moleskine notebook, macadamia nuts, and Philz coffee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What will life be like in 20, 50, 100 years. What are humanity's existential risks. The market and how to use it intelligently to solve social ills. Will I ever get to go to Mars. (I really want to!) I'm a believer in freedom (the social and economic kind) and technology.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either reading or out with friends talking about a book I've read over food.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I plan to take a year off sometime and work at the Heath ceramics factory.
You should message me if
You appreciate talking about something cool you've recently learned.

You enjoy the outdoors.

You want to make something of your life.
