Just an Explorer

My name is John and I'm a software engineer and artist; also just another ape wandering around this planet so don't take me too seriously. In my free time, I enjoy applying quantitative methods to help improve and make sense of the world around me. I'm also passionate about education and learning and spend a lot of my free time exploring how modern technology can combine with human psychology and biology to create optimal learning and educational experiences. Of course, I fail a lot in my endeavours and make tons of mistakes, but I guess that's to be expected and it does spawn a nice feeling when something works and the world really has been improved or your understanding has increased in some significant way.

I guess I'm somewhat of a nerd. I love books, films and games but mainly just great storytelling and engaging pieces of art. At one time in my life I wanted to be an concept artist and had a lot of fun as a would-be designer.

I like detailed discussions and getting others exited about scientific discovery and quantitative fields as well - especially if it has something to do with applied mathematics, artificial intelligence or statistics.

If you'd like to talk to me about anything just hit me up on one of my social media accounts - I'll prolly be munching on banana somewhere :)
