Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What I can say? Like every other schmuck around here, I put
lifestyle over most everything else. I love what I do, and work
hard to stay active in the lives of those I care about. Originally
from Chicago, I came to Colorado via Iowa a little over a decade
ago. I finally learned to ski this winter, so yay, I'm a full
I like my cocktails with rye and my martini with gin. Coffee:
black; beer: as varied as they come. I inherited a dry and acerbic
sense of humor from my mother; despite that, I take a pretty
honest, light-hearted, and sincere approach to life. My friends
would describe me as affable, I like to go with understated, and I
tend to be the kind of person people open up to.
I've tested as an INTJ, for those of you who care about that kind
To be honest, I've got it pretty good, I figure it's time to get
down to business and find someone to share this life with. I'm
looking for a genuine experience with someone who'll kick my ass
and make me a better who-I-am.
What else do you want to know?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm just getting to a place where I might have stopped trying to be
cool. So right now I'm figuring out what it's like to be
comfortable with myself and enjoying the perks that go with
For a living I create software, geeky stuff. I've made most of my
career decisions based on how often I'm required to iron a shirt,
which is never.
When I get sick of all that I'll grow out my beard and raise goats,
or become a butcher, or perhaps a lighthouse keeper.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've been told I'm a Pac Man ninja.

I've had new friends describe me as calming, and meant it as a
compliment. Not so sure what that's all about.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
In reverse order, because why not:
Food: I bounce between being a carnivore and a
vegetarian. I love baking bread but I don't because I'll eat it. I
love sushi and have a weak spot for Chicago street food.
Music: As far as music goes, you name it, although
I tend to stay away from the top 40. CPR's OpenAir is always on in
the car. We'll probably get along if your guilty pleasures include
They Might Be Giants, MF DOOM, Ben Folds, Fountains of Wayne, Tears
for Fears, or Rush.
Movies: I like classic movies, anything that
involves Grace Kelly or Cary Grant and a lot of smoking. My
favorite movie is Charade. Guilty pleasures: The Big Lebowski,
Jaws, The Conversation, Kojak, MST3K, Adventure Time, How It's
Books: Never too far away from a long-read, I read
a bit of non-fiction, but I've been working to rediscover a love
for novels — most recently read Murakami's Colorless Tsukuru
Tazaki, and am grinding through the Bond books.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order: my dog Matilda, a guitar, whiskey and/or
beer and/or coffee, friends, family, and a bike.
I am also addicted to Orbit sweet mint gum. I could probably do
without it, but it feels good to admit I have a problem.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The last time misspelled a word or made a grammar mistake.
Adulthood and manhood and what that means to me and to society.
Stupid details about how we interact with technology and software.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...on a long bike ride, at a show, spending a quiet evening with
the dog, or, more often than not, out with friends contemplating

I really don't understand everyone's obsession with the undead.
Also, I talk to my dog in public more than is socially acceptable.
