To preface this, it's impossible to perfectly condense anyone into a set of words. That said, there's value in learning how to describe myself concisely. It allows me to reflect on what's of interest to others and how I'm growing as an individual.
I deeply appreciate a good audio setup, given that I listen to music often. My current collection includes the Hifiman Sundara, Sennheiser HD600, and E-MU Teak. To drive my headphones and produce better sound, the Monoprice Monolith THX 887 sits on my desk with the Topping E30 on top of it.
I enjoy playing piano. I'm fortunate enough to have perfect pitch, which helps with improvisation.
I play games from time to time (see Stuff I self-host). Video games help me to avoid burnout and relax. Metroidvanias, platformers, RPGs, roguelikes, and strategy games are among my favorite genres.
I try my best to meditate once a day because meditation heals the mind. Tara Brach offers some excellent guided meditations.
I find self-improvement, learning, and metacognition are crucial (those aspirations are part of what give my life meaning). Mindfulness helps me explore those things and better myself, as it's difficult for one to improve without awareness and presence.
I appreciate psychology. Even those most distant from my convictions are comprised of the same physical and emotional constituents (albeit in a different configuration with a different end result). For this reason, I engage in the principle of charity.
I like to write. Teaching is one of the best ways to learn, not to mention that writing can be fulfilling and thought-provoking. Writing helps me understand how to effectively convey my ideas.
I contemplate philosophy's teachings and apply them, though discussing philosophy on this page would be putting Descartes before the horse.
I involve myself with tech because it presents interesting problems for me to solve.
