My self-summary
I'm currently living in Japan for a teaching gig, but it may become a longer thing if I can find a better job once my contract runs out. So far, I'm loving it, but I don't know many people here. I'm hoping to meet some new fantastic people.
What I’m doing with my life
Schooling, working. Looking for ways to meet some new people.
I’m really good at
I was once an expert fencer, and swing dancer, and I still can hold my own at both. I'm a great chef and I'm good at building stuff, breaking stuff, and rebuilding stuff.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually people notice that I dress nicely. People tell me I have a calming voice, and a nice smile. Also, people often comment on my dark sense of humor, but that comes after I'm comfortable around someone.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Colors of Chaos (and other books from same series), Dune, Snow Crash, Leviathan, The Prince, anything by Jean Jacques Rousseau, The Discworld Series, Shogun.

Movies: Memento, most things by Christopher Nolan, Shaun of the Dead, Attack the Block, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Various anime movies, the Man from Earth.

The six things I could never do without
1. The internet. As much as I hate to admit it, I am a denizen of the internet.
2. Fine Cheeses. Seems self explanatory.
3. A good book.
4. A pencil + Paper/sketchbook.
5. Nice clothing.
6. Transportation. I can't stand to be cooped up for very long.

(note: this list is not in order of importance, but, rather, order of occurrence to me.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future, and the past, and where they bleed into each other.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually at a game night, or maybe at work. Otherwise I'm out doing something on the town.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really and genuinely think there is a beauty to math.
