Foreword: Too frequently lately, people try to contact me on Discord, presumably coming from here, for personal tutoring. Do not do so; in the future I will just block people. I appreciate that you value my take on matters, but it's incredibly rude to be asking such -- from someone you don't know, and someone who is not offering such, for free -- when I'm busy as-is. I offer my spare time here when it pleases me, but after taking or teaching classes I generally need a break.
If you need math help, use Math Stack Exchange or the Mathematics Discord server, please. Don't bug unwilling people individually.

Aside from stuff pertaining to MSE, I occasionally speedrun (profile) or grind on RetroAchievements (profile), and run a Pokémon-themed community Discord server with over 20,000 members (invite). I also occasionally can be seen poking around other Stack Exchange sites (math is my specialty though), VGMaps, Pokémon Showdown, and spend a large time watching YouTube videos in a variety of STEM subjects or video games.
So far academically, I graduated from undergrad in the spring of 2019 and currently am in grad school. I also study topics on my own a fair bit, especially over breaks; recently, I've been studying from Apostol's Introduction to Analytic Number Theory. I still feel have a long way to go before I can call myself a "master" of any sort of mathematics, but if nothing else I feel like I have a quite broad knowledge pool that's stoked more interests than I can reasonably pursue in my lifetime.
Currently my personal inclinations lie towards algebraic topics (e.g. abstract algebra, category theory) but I've had quite an extensive look in analytic topics due to my coursework (especially real analysis, measure theory, functional analysis, and PDE theory). Ultimately, though, all math is cool and beautiful and I have a deep appreciation for all of it.
