My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let me explain. No - there is too much. Let me sum up.

I'm more of a math/science guy, but I like languages and generally appreciate good spellers.

Been playing music since I was a kid. Always have some kind of a tune running though my head. If you see me on the street and I look a bit spaced, that probably explains it.

I keep active. Physically and mentally. I have a thing for getting up early on the weekends.

I can usually find a way to rationalize myself out of getting angry (is it really worth it?) unless it's really worth it.

In the same vein, I'm generally pretty mellow, but can get riled up when passions burn. My passions? Technology, music, and education. And you, hopefully.

Born in Montreal. Raised in NY. Word.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
It's 1:20am and I'm filling this crap out. You tell me?

If you're using this field to differentiate me from the rest, I gotta raise my white flag. Apparently every other dude on this site is a software developer that plays guitar. Touche.

I can, however, say that I do enjoy going to work each day. I get to play god by hitting some keys on a keyboard and creating something that lives, thinks and breathes on its own. It helps that the technology I'm working on has nothing to do with finance or the web (you can't imagine how long it took to find a job like that in NY).

You gotta love what you do.

Update: I've moved to Israel to get my Masters. After 10 years it's still a bit of a trip to be a student again, though in retrospect I don't think I would have had it any other way.

Ever forward.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Giving people the benefit of the doubt.

Remembering and pronouncing your name.

I can usually figure out a song on the guitar pretty quickly after a listen or two.

My Shaggy impersonation supposedly isn't half bad.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This old lady in my building turned to me in the elevator one day and excitedly exclaimed 'Wow, you look like a child!'

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. guitar
2. passport
3. cereal
4. pita + hummus = awesome
5. the ability to count
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why an obsessive compulsive Marc Summers would ever agree to host a show like Double Dare.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Decompressing, eating hummus, watching my Netflix movie, playing some bossa, and getting some freakin' shuteye for the first time all week.

Of course, there're always exceptions. Frequently, actually. So much for typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think Will Ferrell is a hack.

Except for the Dog Lawyer sketch. That was brilliant.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Hopefully you're smart, cute, and you get my movie references (bonus points if you got the one up top). You're confident and comfortable with yourself, but enjoy exploring and learning new things.

Pluses: a willingness to nerd out here and there, and being ok with a bit of grit (think backpacking trip).
