A few descriptors: honest, caring, loyal, sincere, straightforward, thoughtful, helping, and kind. Somewhat reserved, quiet, and trustworthy. My self-deprecating humor isn't that I have low self-confidence, but more that it is a way to keep me grounded and vaguely humble.
While these qualities may not be apparent at first glance, give me a bit of time and I will ensure you'll warm up to me and see the "good catch" that I am. I am not flashy or particularly charismatic, so I've never been one with much "game." Conveniently, that lack of game makes me particularly loyal (not that I would not have been anyway).
I am an oddly talented engineer who can both write well and deal with arcane technical minutia. Outside of work, um, let me get back to you in 2014.
I am a fan of sci-fi both from its technical speculation as well as it being an anthropological mirror. My Flipboard feed is pretty eclectic, so I read a good deal of news and commentary.
