More About Me

This blog is super out of date because, in short, time spent writing is time spent not doing. I’ve leveled up many times.

Here’s a 2021 list of excellent dumb things that describe or rhyme with what I am:

  • Chaotic-pensive computer scientist.
  • Confidence comes from base principles understanding, and doing. Not surface level shortcuts.
  • Engineer of soul & style.
  • Indie director depending on the mood.
  • Business-principles-aware but impatiently so. 50-50 logic and feelings fueled storyteller.
  • My DnD character has a ton of charisma in short & specific circumstances.
  • Comfortable with complexity and n-dimensional space.
  • Proponent of egoless individuality, awareness, and interestedness.
  • Half hotblooded half coldblooded anime protagonist.
  • Would-be CEO of something small and wisely disruptive.
  • Hyper awareness. - means you can get overwhelmed, but you’re the opposite of numb to social stimulus & subtlety.
  • Protopian futures lover; also pessimist futurist - those are the true optimists.
