My self-summary
I'm a mildly extroverted person, who is left handed. I'm a little weird. Ok maybe a lot weird. And that's how I like it.

Say hi. I dare you.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a software engineer, interaction/workflow designer, and general-purpose nerdy person. I've recently moved to central New York for work.
I’m really good at
Taking things apart and putting them back together. Assembling IKEA furniture. Creative cooking. Stating the obvious. Explaining naturally occurring phenomena through math and science. Making craft cocktails. Driving stick. Making friends with other people's pets.
The first things people usually notice about me
If I'm wearing them, my glasses, as they are big and nerdy-ish.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Recent Books: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck by Mark Manson, The Diva Rules by Michelle Visage, The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss, Follow the Geeks by Jason Hiner, Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki, Self-Inflicted Wounds by Aisha Tyler.

Movies: I stopped counting the number of times I watched Frozen at 15 and I did watch it some unknown number of times more. Same with Inside Out. Big budget action movies with lots of explosions excite me, like Mad Max: Fury Road.

Shows: RuPaul's Drag Race, Adam Ruins Everything, The Great British Bake Off, Kimmy Schmidt, Orange is the New Black, COSMOS, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Breaking Bad, 30 Rock, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, 30 Rock, Archer, Family Guy, South Park, Star Trek (all but Enterprise), and Futurama.

Music: All over the map on this one.

Food: I would like to call myself a meatitarian, but I do love veggies too. I try not to eat grains. Now brains on the other hand... Braaaaaaaaains!!!!!
Six things I could never do without
0) Coffee
1) Glasses/contacts
2) iPhone
3) Enumerated lists of things
4) The Google
5) Whiteboards
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Kittens. How I can make the world a better place. Kittens. How I can make the world a better place for kittens. What's for [insert next meal of the day here]. Kittens. When I am going to go back to finish grad school and what I will research. Kittens.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a bar. Watching Netflix. Doing laundry. Having dinner with friends. On a date. Working out. Going exploring. Want to help me pick?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Back in college, for two whole years, I listened to nothing but the series of Harry Potter audiobooks in my car during my commute between work, school, and home. I would alternate back and forth between the US version read by Jim Dale and the UK version read by Stephen Fry. What I learned: The Stephen Fry version is better.
You should message me if
You believe in the prose of Matt Inman and Randall Munroe. You believe in the Oxford comma. You believe in the AP Style Guide that says not to use the Oxford comma and you would like to fight to the death. You have strong opinions about other forms of punctuation and would like to discuss them over wine. You understand that sometimes the antagonist is the most compelling character in a story and you may secretly want him/her to win even though you know he/she won't. You might identify as even mildly nerdy. You like board games. You aren't afraid of being forced to go outside and hike. You would like to go out bike riding with me. You have a spiffy-awesome [random animal species here] that you would like me to meet. You refer to things as "spiffy" and mean it.

So say we all!
The two of us
