My self-summary
Damn if everything isn’t so interesting. If you told someone in the 1950s we’d have flying cars by now they’d believe you but if you told them about smart phones, that you’d have a device that not only lets you talk to anyone almost anywhere but also gives you access to the combined whole of human knowledge, Mr 1950 would say your full of it.

There are so many interesting places to go, so many different ways of living, It’s crazy how different even close places can be, Spain and England are less than 1000 miles apart but contrast amazingly.

It helps that the people are interesting. If you think about it everyone has a story, from the Baber who’s lived a long hard life to the young guy selling stuff on the street they all have a story to tell.

Then there’s the huge number of things to do, going on a walk in the forest, reading a book, playing a game with friends, hell watching Netflix. Being bored really just not a thing that should happen.

Anyways to cut a long ramble short things are awesome. I’m not saying that they couldn’t be better, but then I guess that’s what people are working to do, at least I am.
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment I'm working on a masters in computing science at the University of Alberta. My thesis is on a Machine Learning (a branch of AI) program to help the detection of breast cancer in mammograms. Also I guess I can claim in a loose way that I'm an author, as I've tricked perfectly respectable publications into printing my work.

Otherwise I have a bunch of side projects going on mostly consisting of interesting problems and half baked startups.

Oh yeah, I'm also getting into yoga.
I’m really good at
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm going to guess my beard and height. I'm tall and beardy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Well, on the books front I find I'll read most anything if it makes me think or roll on the ground laughing, such as A Problem From Hell, a book about genocide; The Flashman series which is about the worst British officer in the world; The Dark Tower, a dark fantasy novel; and War, a book about the evolutionary origins of human conflict.

Film and TV also follow a similar theme. I like silly fun like American Dad or Adventure Time while also enjoying dystopian science fiction, like Children of Men or the Hunger Games.

Games are also on the table, both board and the kind that cause people on the internet to insult me.

My taste in music spans trance, metal, a small amount of rap, and pretty much anything with good guitar work or a driving beat.
Six things I could never do without
- My Guitar
- Netflix.... who needs TV
- Some kind of connection... you know, for Netflix
- My Friends
- A project on the run
- My Family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the universe, everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with some of my friends at a pub, at a live show of some kind, working on one of my projects, or enjoying the sun on a deck.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have dual Canadian and UK Citizenship.
You should message me if
You're bored and don't mind talking about random esoteric things.
The two of us
