Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey! So, this is me. I'm curious (which is necessarily paired with
open minded) and honest. Generally an open book. At times I
variously do web design, take photographs, invest, write. Always
making lists. I try to keep my identity small, as someone recently
told me. Leslie Knope is my role model.
I have a full-time job in marketing consulting, but I'm also still
getting my master's in international affairs and working on a
number of side projects. If you always have personal projects
you're engaged in, we might be a match.
Arguably introverted, but I like to be social. I host events at my
house when I have the time.
I'm looking for something serious; a partner.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a marketing consultant for the federal government--a recent
career change. And I'm very glad for it. The grass really was
greener, the concrete whiter.
Occasional photography gigs like weddings and headshots. I have a
few creative tasks I'm working on, like writing a web comic about
another species spontaneously turning sentient, that I hope will
ask enough questions to stay interesting for a while. I just
ordered 20 oil paintings from China in the hope that selling them
here will be reasonably profitable. (Update: so far so good.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Looking for (and sometimes inventing) silver linings.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a normal-proportioned human male who's been scaled down
somewhat. Being short stinks for everything but hide and seek.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. The internet. Where would I be without access
to the good old netterwebs? Limitless learning, communication with
my foreign friends, narwhal bacon, Homestar Runner??
2. My cell phone. It is my sole link to many
acquaintances, and it acts as a portal to item 1.
3. Friends and new friends. Solitary confinement
would be particularly effective against me, I fear.
4. Order. I need organization. If everything's
higgletypigglety I can't concentrate. Worse yet is a responsibility
lurking at the corner of my memory. I write down EVERYTHING.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Loving where I am, utilitarianism, overcoming my own biases, and
which friends are going to watch which movies with me because swear
to god we have to get through this list or it will grow forever.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Most often, I'm hanging out with roommates at the house. We might
attempt a pub in downtown Decatur, or host an Art Night if we're
feeling creative. I'm not huge on live music or clubs, so you won't
find me at those unless a friend has begged me to join them with
extreme levels of desperation.

You're openminded, thoughtful, and smart. You have opinions and can
critically analyze as a matter of course.
