Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've had a pretty interesting life. Native Austinite, Just moved
back home after being away for several years working in west TX. It
was an crazy ride but, Phew, GLAD to be home.
I had a professionally licensed, bureaucratic job that I hated. I
was living in West Texas; the energy boom priced me out of living
in the area so I jumped into the oil industry. It was lots of work
and lots of blood and sweat (quite literally). Enjoyed the people
and work but saw too much and almost lost my life at my job so I
decided to quit and follow my long-time dream of working in the
medical field. Overall, and everything considered, I'm glad I did
it but would not want to do it again!
I'm currently back in school working on towards an RN and possibly
an MSN. Loving it, the people are SO cool and the human body-
Update now: finished my prereqs, applied and waiting to for a
decision from schools.
I'm a bit of a science and language nerd and I love being outdoors.
Like to cook and enjoy art/music (both making and seeing/listening)
I'm pretty down-to-earth and a little bit of a country boy stuck in
a city dweller's body: I enjoy big city accommodations but really
need to get back to nature to recharge and decompress pretty
I'm also a lot more subversive than you might think by looking at
me... I've been told by close friends that I camouflage well, but I
don't think that's a virtue or vice- just a survival mechanism,
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working toward an RN, doing some art, and enjoying myself. Just
finished making some outdoor gear and am looking forward to trying
it out! I'm also learning about wild edibles... I love being
outdoors. I also carve and make wooden toys (for kids AND adults!)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Well, I have a degree in microbiology, so science, I guess... I
love learning languages, music.
Dark, sarcastic humor and innocent, playful gestures.
OK, so there is a tongue planted firmly in my cheek.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can be quiet when I first meet someone (though not always).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love Tom Robbins, political science/geopolitics (stuff like NY
times, Foreign Affairs, comparative religion, "sciencey" stuff. I
just finished "Program or be programmed" and "The Internet Bubble"
and am reading 'What technology wants" and "Les Fleurs de mal",
Baudelaire was an interesting cat!
My library has a lot of Carving/painting/art books. I love trying
different foods; only thing I've turned down is thousand year
eggs... microbiology ruined'em for me!
Movies: I like comedies, sci-fi, adventure (w/a plot and maybe some
acting, if that's not too much to ask) drama... I like foreign
movies, particularly German ones.... need the practice! (Sprichst
du? ) Goodbye Lenin, Was zu tun wenn's brennt, Sophie Scholl,
Amelie, Shaun of the Dead, 28 days, James Bond (any), The Big
Lebowski, The Triplettes of Bellville, Donny Darko, As Good as it
gets, The brave little toaster, The Godfather, I <3 huckabees,
Rushmore, Fletch, Shawshank redemption, Wristcutters: a love
Ok, so that seems like a long and wordy list to me. In the interest
of full disclosure- I'm kind of retarded when it comes to
pop-culture, particularly remembering actors... but I'm working on
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Making music, making art, my pup, reading, exercise,
pfefferbroetchen (little pepper/ginger-bread cookies with powder
sugar coating that have been in a pillowcase for about a month,
sounds gross, I know.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Geopolitics, new art projects, oh and I just got a cool book about
the ball amphora culture (apparently a trading guild or group in
late neolithic Europe- if you know anything about them, send me an
email, just started reading the book!-- it's in German so I'm not
sure what the culture is called in english-- Kugelamphorenkultur,
if that helps, LOL!) Going to Germany and Europe in general when I
get done with my degree. Getting finished with my degree.
Building a house out of cob, or leichlehmbau, or sandbags, or maybe
just digging it out of the side of a hill?? (I've helped build
several conventional houses and a log cabin!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
studying, reading, doin' somethin' fun with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I had to run across the Rio Grande from the Mexican army/Federales

My car is often full of camping stuff, art stuff, and tools-- but I
try to keep it organized.
