Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My favorite things to do are playing in the dirt, cutting my hands
while working with wood, building software, and reading. I have a
slightly artistic temperament.
I definitely contain an underlying intensity so I'll let you know
what's bouncing around in my head at any given time and would hope
you enjoy this kind of banter. I do have flights of fancy from time
to time, but I wouldn't describe myself as overly talkative.
I've always been a city denizen and I don't have a long list
outdoor activities in which I take part. I avoid gyms like the
plague, but I enjoy being outside and do a bit of running, a lot of
walking, and practice yoga to stay limber.
I speak directly and tend to make eye contact while doing so
assuming I'm not formulating strange ideas. I dislike the inability
to discuss genuine thoughts and sentiment.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm enjoying a peaceful home, exploring the city, and sitting at
bars observing the general insanity of life.
I try to do project work as necessary to feed my cat. It's a
generally busy life where I attempt to fit in fun when I can.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm very good at sweeping floors, building things, and possess a
magical knack for digging holes in the ground.
I'm versed in cultural anthropology, history, design, computer
science, woodworking, and some other stuff. I can talk about many
The first things people usually notice about me

The fact that my hands tend to move about as I talk. I've scared
west coast natives in the past so I've learned to curb this
tendency. My friends seem to find it endearing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like literature with simple prose (think Steinbeck), often
focused on cultural commentary and class issues. I vehemently
dislike discussions of vampires, werewolves, or princes. Spaceships
are acceptable if done properly.
I like films that some find slow which focus on character
development. A couple of examples would be The Thin Red Line, Cool
Hand Luke, or Bladerunner.
I'll eat anything that is prepared well and enjoy it, but am
particularly fond of Indian, Japanese, and Thai foods.
I'm all about live music so don't have a long list of albums. I'm a
fan of raucous shows and strange electronic music. I enjoy walking
into places that are weird. It's a great way to meet interesting
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Direct communication
2. Space and time to build things
4. A bathtub
5. My rescue creature
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whatever it is that I'm interested in at that particular moment in
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I usually have quiet Friday nights to avoid some of the weekend
mania. I will wander out in pursuit of good food, an interesting
art show, or a quiet bar with close friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I have several ongoing arguments with my cat.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Please keep this on an equal footing. If I think we would be fun
together I'll send a message and feel free to do the same.
Hopefully we'll each end up having a new and interesting friend.
