Perpetually curious, mostly affable, about an eighth Chinese.
I'm Skipper, a curious being.

I like to think of myself as a friendly and open-minded person who's still just learning about the world. I enjoy studying and discussing psychology, philosophy, language, and science. I keep up with technology enthusiastically and sometimes spend time writing for pleasure (and maybe someday profit). Novelty and new experiences with friends are a big draw for me. I play games of all sorts and team sports, especially Ultimate Frisbee which I play as often as I can!

I'm living in 'Silicon Valley' in the San Francisco bay area. I've worked briefly for large companies like Google and Lockheed Martin and at a small software company as an analyst. Further education and re-entry into academia are high on my list of goals.

Lately I'm wont to ponder the sweeping cultural changes of accelerating technological change and the unknowns of our near future. I read a lot of books (audiobooks especially) and generally speaking need to find something productive to do with myself.
