Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Tiger selfie and shirtless mirror selfie indefinitely pending.
Until then, c'est moi:
Baltimore expat, engineer, humourist, writer, artist, volunteer,
activist, capoeirista, ENFJ, conversationalist, tinker, tailor,
soldier, spy; looking to connect with someone who may have interest
in one or more of the things I like to do, or teach me something
I am a generally upbeat and nerdy person; my humour is usually
non-sequitur. I can still comfortably mingle with the Eloi, though.
By the way, if you know what an Eloi is, you are a nerd as well, so
stop denying it, put down that crotchet Enterprise you're making,
and put on that non-utilitarian steampunk clock monocle you hid in
your dresser. Nerd.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I design and build trains, rail systems, and their wayside safety
mechanisms, so if you get on a subway, your life is in my
hands...you can't see, but I just laughed maniacally. My job tile
is "electronics engineer", but that is only because HR won't let me
put "Train Lord" on my business cards, becausE HR is full of
In my spare time, I do capoeira, try to learn French, attempt to
dance, write, read/relay funny stories on various stages, and
volunteer for causes about which I care (mostly
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking to strangers, kicking stuff/people, drawing, singing
off-key, dancing until dawn, being a beer snob.
If you agree with me that [Anything] Light is not so much beer as
it is dirty soda water that tastes like liquefied hate speech and
sad kitten tears, we will likely get along great.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My diastema, which I hear is sexy in Somalia. It really means
little though since I'm in Rochester.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
BOOKS: “...If you go home with somebody and they don't have books,
don't f*** them.” -John Waters. I just started "Frankenstein".
Prior to that this year were "The Strange Case of Rachel K",
"Americanah", "The Secret Origins of Wonder Woman", "Yes Please",
"Bad Feminist", and "Atlas Shrugged"...JUST KIDDING! I'd sooner
swallow a box of ghost pepper-dipped tacs than attend to read
anything by Ayn Rand.
SHOWS: "F*** Tyler Perry." -W. Kamal Bell.
MUSIC: "Craziness is like Heaven." - Jimi Hendrix.
When I'm at work, I'm listening to either NPR or Dan Savage. Off
work, music shapes my mood, and my mood shapes my music
preferences. I spurn no genre, but I'm sure that too much auto-tune
makes baby angels' heads explode.
FOOD: Mostly piscivorous, and except for red meat, I will try
anything twice. I'd like to try ostrich. If you are an ostrich and
reading this, I'm going to eat the f*** out of you. Watch your
back. Should I become a zombie, vampire or werewolf, I would most
likely eat only vegans, because they are free range, local, and
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A pad, a pencil, my passport, some pants, a pomegranate,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I want to hug a red panda, but I don't want it to scratch out my
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Listening to a Girl Talk mashup of Run the Jewels and Led Zeppelin
. Drinking a negroni at a speakeasy-style bar. Learning how to tie
a fancier tie knot. Designing a tattoo for a friend. Hosting a
B-boy battle. There is no such thing as "typical" in my world.
You've been warned.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I want Carl Kasell's voice on my answering machine, but I don't
have an answering machine, because it's not 1995.
I have the entire Lego Architecture series on display on shelves in
my living room, which is probably why I'm still single.
I was homeless for 2 1/2 years, spanning my last year of high
school and my first three semesters of university...What? The whole
profile can't all be lame puns and jokes!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are not incensed by my mention of cherubic cranial combustion,
violent ostrich consumption, or small mammal embracing.
For the record, I don't really have a "type", and I'm not looking
for anyone to "complete" me. I've been getting on fine by myself,
but should we meet and all the ingredients are there and we mesh,
then great! If not, you at least made a good friend...unless of
course you're an ostrich. Then you'd better run.
