Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A few things about me...
• I don't like hair gel and don't trust those who do. I believe
that hundreds of years from now people will view hair gel with the
same disgust that we view the hygiene habits of the middle ages
• I enjoy traveling. For me that means spending the majority of the
time seeing/experiencing new things more so than relaxing in a
lounge chair or ordering room service in the hotel all day.
• I LOVE satire and deadpan.
• I'm pretty laid back and in a group will be more likely to engage
in one on one conversations with people rather than trying to run
• I've spent the majority of my life with the meanings of the words
"deliberate" and "diligent" flip flopped.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m a web developer despite having been a business (finance) major
for undergrad. I'll save the extended explanation of how I
transitioned to programming for later, but I will say I find the
creative element of building an application that people use and
enjoy from a blank white page very attractive. I do have better
conversation skills than most developers/IT people.
I have a 9-5 that I like, but also have side applications that are
both live and I'm developing. I have strong aspirations to be
supporting myself with these side projects in the future.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-I have a strong work ethic
-Cooking...not just "guy good" in being able to make a handful of
things, but the ability to make a wide spectrum of things really
well with a strong base understanding of techniques.
-Being introspective...I suppose this isn't something I'm good at,
but simply something I do a fair amount
-Seeing the big picture or the heart of the matter

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well, Friday is TGI Fridays night for me. I usually arrive there
some time between 6/6:30, order some of their famous potato skins,
and off I go on an amazing culinary experience. My entre can vary
quite a bit more. On a given Friday it could be their famous
Southwestern burger, their sizzling rib eye steak, chicken fingers,
or if I'm in the mood to "go crazy" maybe something exotic like
their Asian Chicken Salad.
After dinner I go home and watch "Days of Thunder" with Tom Cruise
and Robert Duvall. I don't think it's a stretch to say it's
probably both actors' best performance, and every week that I watch
it I usually find something else to take away from the nuanced
After Days of Thunder I'm usually pretty amped up, but thankfully
the time it takes me to shower, brush my teeth, and generally wind
down for bed leaves me a bit calmer so I can fall asleep.

Seriously, with the amount of unpleasant, mundane things one has to
do in one's life, you have to be pretty narcissistic to draw a hard
line on something that even if you view as a bit annoying/boring is
going to allow you to bring a great deal of joy to someone you
theoretically care a great deal about.
