My self-summary
I'm some sort of hybrid nerd-hippie-mad scientist. I have too many interests. I like to try new things and see new places.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an engineer at Embraer in Melbourne, FL. I love my job; I'd probably be designing and building things even if they didn't pay me for it.

I'm writing my master's thesis in financial mathematics. Every time I encounter a new term in the finance industry, I say to myself, "What the hell? People allow people to do this with other people's money?" And by people I mean: the government, banks, and everyday people. Possibly in that order.

I'm always trying to learn a new musical instrument. Sometimes more than one at a time.
I’m really good at
I'm sarcastic and tend to add a witty commentary to everything around me.

Tetris. I like simple repetitive logic games. I also like the "tetris effect" where you keep thinking about aligning blocks for a while after playing too much tetris. It also works with connect four, bejeweled, hexic, and a few others. Maybe I'm just slightly OCD and want to stack things and sort them by color?
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm mildly entertaining for such a cynical bastard. Mmm, delicious sarcasms. Om nom nom nom.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like intellectual books. My favorite is Voltaire's Candide. Then the usual stuff, like George Orwell's 1984, or even better, Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. The Illuminatus! Trilogy is fantastic. Stuff that "makes you think". I'm also a fan of Pratchett. I like to joke around with Lovecraftian horrors.

My favorite movie is probably The Life Aquatic. I like dystopian, life-isn't-supposed-to-be-perfect-just-deal-with-it movies.

Note that being listed here does not mean I like every song by said artist. I tend to like individual songs rather than obsess over any artists.

I like food.

I don't believe in cable. I do Netflix and Hulu. I really only watch The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and Doctor Who.

Recently got a PS4 for Destiny. The best game system ever is still the Super Nintendo. Long, story driven quests and pixelated graphics are where it's at. Team Fortress 2 used to be quite good, before they introduced hats and started selling items in game. I went to DragonCon (2009) dressed as a Red team Engineer. Spent 2 days being mistaken for Bob the Builder and letting parents take pictures of me with their kids.
Some of my all time favs:
Earthbound aka Mother II
League of Legengs aka LOL
Left 4 Dead aka L4D
Left 4 Dead 2 aka L4D2
Secret of Mana
Starcraft 2
Super Mario World
Six things I could never do without
Oxygen, Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Calcium, Phosphorus. In that order. The rest are just trace elements anyway, right? (I wish. Life's too complicated.)

For those of you who think that was a cop-out and not an insightful window into my mind, I don't absolutely depend on many things. I'm pretty malleable. Though I do appreciate being able to bathe regularly.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The fact that there is no way I can condense everything about myself into something short enough to fit the average person's attention span and at the same time show that I have more than a two dimensional personality. Here's hoping you have a longer attention span.

Sometimes I wish I had been born a helicopter. Wafflewafflewafflewafflewaffle.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out motocycling. Just to ride.
Going to the gym (Rock climbing at On the Edge!)

I don't 'go out' very often, but you might see me around downtown Melbourne on a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday night. Particularly at Mainstreet.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not afraid to stall an airplane, disassemble high voltage electronics, and I'm not even afraid of the unknown, but girls I think are cute make me nervous.
You should message me if
You're willing to meet my girlfriend. Sorry ladies, I'm not currently single, but she likes to browse your profiles with me, she's curvy, smart, weird, and wishes I'd bring some of you home... (Don't tell her I told you, but she likes to watch me flirt... And I'm okay with this.) If that interests you, let's start by meeting downtown, grab coffee or drinks, and maybe go dancing?
The two of us
