I'm a recent transplant to Seattle via San Francisco. I grew up in the PNW, and I never thought I'd be back. A two-week stint here last December changed that: I fell in love with Seattle.
Now I'm back, pursuing a career in analytics consulting, with an emphasis on mobile apps. I got my start after Stanford in product management & design and have since found amazing ways to make data-driven product changes.
I do what I love. And I love what I do. But I s'pose I'll cover that in "what I'm doing with my life."
Outside of bolding keywords, I like learning. A lot. I've owned and dismantled every generation iPhone just to see how things have changed. I've made awesome, 3-D printed console mods. And I'm fairly positive I've read every publication by Richard Feynman and Carl Sagan (although that stems from a familial interest and being quizzed at home.)
I enjoy theoretical physics, but I completely understand if you have no interest. (Side note: No, I don't enjoy The Big Bang Theory." Not a fan of laugh tracks or stereotypes perpetuating that all nerds have Asperger's.)
I'm a bit of a clean freak. I even made my roommate's bed, but she doesn't mind. I'm bothered by dirty dishes.
I also love baking. I didn't start drinking until I turned 21. The most exciting part about it has been baking. Have you ever tried Belfast Carbomb cupcakes? Bailey's in the frosting, Jameson in the ganache, and Kahlua in the cupcake. Amazing.
But everything in moderation. I suffer from Former Fatty Syndrome. I had a neurological disorder that required that I abstain from anything that would increase my heart rate. Kinda left me unmotivated. But after medical intervention, I got really into hiking. Needless to say, my health means a lot to me now.
So why am I on OkCupid?
Simple. I want a new way to meet people. I work a lot and frequent a couple dive bars (I love playing pool), but I wouldn't consider either of those venues "suitable for suitors." Ideally I'd like to meet someone to go out with after work or on weekends. Or stay in with – that can easily be just as fun.
