About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Meet new people in the columbus area, and become initially engaged in the CS culture.

ABOUT ME

I'm a hedonist. If you're not having fun, you're not doing it right! Everything is fun in life, if you manage to do it with the right people. Whether it be watching TV, going to the gym, nostalgically playing old video games, or basket weaving or working, I figure that just about everything deserves a shot. I want to do everything, and gave up on a trying to write a concise bucket list. This all seems pretty obvious and standard but I have always found that people seem to neglect these things. :)

I've got a pretty peculiar range of hobbies. I've been playing drums since I was five, and played in marching bands through college. I've been playing video games as long as I can remember. This triggered my hobbies and career in computing. I'm absolutely fascinated by the cosmos and astronomy. I've geocached a ton and even hidden some of my own. I've become an avid hasher, and I consider myself a veteran roller coaster enthusiast. I enjoy maddeningly difficult riddles. I am something like a 1500 ELO in chess. (Maybe not any more, who knows). I currently host board game nights in columbus among friends and have taken a liking to vast numbers of strategy games including Advanced Squad Leader. I'm always open to new ideas.

I was once told to describe myself in 5 words.

I went with eclectic, exuberant, eccentric, elusive, and enigmatic.

PHILOSOPHY

If you're not having fun doing what you are doing, you're not doing it with the right attitude, or perhaps not the right people!
