My self-summary
I'm a dreamy-headed student of science, a technophile, an occasional (read: delinquent) writer, and an aficionado of the finely crafted witticism. I have lots of dreams and aspirations but all I really know is that I want my life to be interesting so I'll have lots of things to write about when I get old. This means meeting interesting people and doing interesting things. Feel free to help me out with this part.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently a Product Designer (UX) for a startup in Redwood City. After spending a lot of time getting my career in order, I'm trying to spend a little more time enjoying myself—adventures are in order. Sometimes I think I should just sell everything, run off into the wilderness, and write stories...
The first things people usually notice about me
People are always telling me how "nice" I am. Which feels so bland and empty sometimes. And I guess that offends my self-image as/aspiration to be a man of complexity. But perhaps I read too much into that. I am indeed a kind person; I am amicable and easy to talk to.

And often one of the last things people notice about me is how good a dancer I am. I mean, it's not like you're going to find me in the middle of a dance circle, but people are always surprised.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Specifics? Well, that would be a long conversation. And really, wouldn't it be more fun to find out these things in person?

I'll say this though, whereas some people seem to chase after a certain sound or genre, I really just look for whatever is interesting or creative musically. And when I find something, I like to explore an artist's influences and peers--to understand that musical family, if you will. I love music for the way it makes you feel, but also the insight it gives you into culture and people.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to explain things. Literally. If I'm thinking about a difficult concept, I spend a lot of time trying to imagine how I would phrase it or what analogy I would use.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There's something oxymoronic about this one...
You should message me if
You have a great sense of humor or at least can flex some wit now and then.

You enjoy talking about ideas—because there will be a lot of that—but in the end you don't take yourself that seriously.
