I guess I should start by saying I'm a Jack-of-Trades or a Renaissance Man. I'm a Maker and a Gamer at heart, 21 years old with far more life experience than I should have endured by now. I'm a passionate learner, a pragmatic Philosopher with a strong head for economics and breaking down big, complex ideas into their most basic mechanisms, and I feel comfortable admitting I'm all manner of Geek. The fields I've encountered that don't hold my interest can be counted on one hand.
I've had a rough run of it so far, and I've been struggling with a severe case of narcolepsy + cataplexy for five years without treatment. I've been on my own since I was fourteen, I haven't really had the opportunity to get on my own feet yet in terms of financial security, and I'm technically homeless right now. I started the long path to medical attention just a few months ago, but I'm hoping that some day I'll be able to drive a vehicle and hold down a steady if humble lifestyle doing something I Love.
What else? I'm not entirely sure what people say in these things.
I'm a neurodivergent trans-androgynous polyamorous panromantic demisexual, for what it's worth, a gender nihilist, an anti-humanist anti-establishment pseudo-socialist pseudo-anarchist, and a secular pragmatist above all. I'm a lucid dreamer and adept at a suite of meditative practices.
In my free time, I like to read (Eastern light novels, all manner of fantasy; Piers Anthony, the Abhorsen series, Kushiel's Dart, Christopher Moore, all sorts of stuff, though I'm terrible about not finishing them), write, watch films and series (BBC, anime, indie flicks, etc), volunteer gardening and building or renovating homes when I can, study languages and all manner of other topics, design video games, tabletop games, software systems, economic systems, sustainable systems / community models, machines / robots, characters, etc... I Love to tinker and build things, to Make things, I'm a programmer and I suppose professionally a web developer, I consider myself an Artist, and I work with all manner of materials, tools, and media, though I have a preference for crafting pieces which serve some function. My formal training includes architecture, mechanical design (with an emphasis on modeling and rapid prototyping), robotics, web development, and application design and implementation. I also grew up as the son of a successful entrepreneur and inventor, and I possess strong business skills and a degree of legal proficiency. With my good Friend and mentor, I even designed and built a particular [proprietary] semi-intelligent data solution meant to serve as the backbone of a promising self-sufficient business model, which unfortunately has not yet procured the requisite seed capital.
This may need some revision later. Seems a bit.. much, for an introduction. Better to cut it down later, though, I think.
