I also love gaming in all of its forms and spend a lot of time in space or worlds full of magic - No Man's Sky is my #1. I also like to make games - my husband (that handsome fellow next to me) and I are working on a hex-based tabletop strategy & role-playing game. It's been a lot of fun designing worlds, characters, and lore. :) And finally, something else super cool: I won first place in the Aether Wars Phase III competition in 2019!
I love to learn and teach people about the things I've learned, especially:
- how to take things apart to understand their base functions,
- how to put those things back together after making the mess of discovery,
- the philosophy behind how things work and figuring out why things are the way they are,
- how words and other forms of communication influence people,
- digital spaces, and how those spaces influence people's interactions,
- oh and computers...I like computers. Have I mentioned that already? :)
Aside from that, I like to paint miniatures, work on embedded programming projects, fiddle with my pet projects in C, C++, Rust, and Python, look at malware and threat feeds, OSINT activities, and write. I'm also working on getting my Amateur Radio license this year - if all goes well, my callsign will be up here before the fall.
Thanks for checking my website out - feel free to contact me on any of those channels if you'd like to get in touch.
- ☆ Learner
- I am a firm believer in continuous improvement, and the process of learning excites me more than anything. I am energized by mastery, working to learn more about whatever interests me every day.
- ☆ Intellection
- Thinking about thinking - I'm constantly thinking about something, whether it's a new idea, something I've read, or a new challenge I'd like to try. An introspective mental hum is a constant in my life.
- ☆ Input
- I'm a collector of thoughts, things, and information. Inquisitive by nature, and excited by the world's infinite variety and complexity. I try to remember everything and anything, just in case it proves valuable in the future.
- ☆ Ideation
- I love ideas - all of them - whether they're bad, good, strange, or obvious. I enjoy taking in the world we all know and turning it around to see it from a strange, but strangely enlightening, angle. "That's an interesting way to think about that, Eva," is a phrase I often hear. Most of the time it ends up working out, too. ;)
- ☆ Strategic
- I'm adept at seeking out patterns and problems and cut through to find the best solution. I'm not intimidated by complexity; I revel in it.
