My self-summary
Breakfast enthusiast. Gadget addict. Beer scientist. Impromptu musician. Wanderlust supporter. Nerdy at heart.

I have a propensity to push things towards ridiculousness, like baking a cake with three pies inside it, or settling arguments with Rock'm Sock'm Robots.

My weaknesses include puppies and the sharp corners of coffee tables.
What I’m doing with my life
During the day I'm a mild(ish) mannered software engineer building code that probably won't become sentient and wreck havoc. Probably.

Outside of work I'm always picking up new hobbies and projects. They change and expand over time and can range anywhere from learning a new instrument, perfecting an arm-bar lock, or brewing up my latest beer creation.
I’m really good at
Mario Kart.
Lego-Mcgyvering.
Improvisation.
The Song of Storms.
Corrupting the Monopoly banker.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
I devour books, and will read just about anything. Some of my favorite authors include: Brandon Sanderson, Stephen King, Douglas Adams, Isaac Asimov, Philip Pullman, Neil Gaiman, and Terry Pratchett.

Movies:
Make me laugh, gasp, or think.
Blazing Saddles, Robin Hood Men in Tights, Spirited Away, Indiana Jones, Avengers, Zoolander, Fight Club, The Prestige, and just about anything Disney or Pixar can churn out.

TV:
IT Crowd, Archer, MythBusters, Futurama , It's Always Sunny, Parks and Rec, Firefly, Rick & Morty, Cutthroat Kitchen, GOT, Westworld.

Food:
Give me something new, something exotic, or failing that I have a special place in my heart for seafood (sushi++).
The six things I could never do without
A sense of humor
Impromptu jam sessions
That next book in the series
Garden Salsa
Friends & Family (includes the pup)
Starting to make cookies/brownies but then eating like half the dough and not wanting the cookies/brownies any more but baking them anyway and foisting them on friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why WebMD always tells me I have "Internet Connectivity Issues".

Why do they put Braille dots on the keypad of a drive-up ATM.

Whether there's a special circle in Hell for people who leave out mixed bowls of Skittles and M&Ms, because there should be!
On a typical Friday night I am
Out. Festivals, dancing, concerts, theater? Please. Games, movies, dinner, drinks, karaoke? Absolutely.

I may instead be building a blanket-fort or attaching googly eyes to household appliances. It has been known to happen.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like to leave pennies face-up in public areas for people to find. Who couldn't use a bit more luck? :)

** I've been informed that I might be wasting my time here. Does anyone still pick up lucky pennies? Where is all this excess luck piling up?!
You should message me if
If you want to talk about atoms, death, intellect, the meaning of life, faraway galaxies, music that makes you feel different, memories, the lies you've told, your flaws, your favorite scents, your childhood, what keeps you up at night, your insecurities and fears.

In any event if you laughed at all while reading this you should probably let me know. For science.
