Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! My name is Ryan, I'm originally from Seattle but have lived in
SF for almost 2 years now and absolutely love it here. I have an
open and active mind and try not to take my life or the people in
it for granted. Generally I like to be around positive people, and
have little patience for constant cynicism and pessimistic
attitudes. I get along best with individuals who share my passion
for learning, are easily sucked into random Wikipedia tangents,
wonder about the universe, appreciate the beauty of nature, love
music and art, and most importantly - love to laugh. I'm a huge
astronomy and science buff who also enjoys hiking, painting,
cooking, fitness, travel, music, DIY electronics, movies and
exploring new things.
Looking forward to meeting like-minded women for friendship or
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working with a start-up STEM education outreach organization and
wearing many hats. Our aim is get kids excited about science , math
and engineering and provide resources and tools for educators.
Also, a couple weekends per month, I volunteer for an astronomy
group that does public outreach in the form of stargazing events in
the city. My career for the past decade has been in software sales
which is what originally brought me to the bay area, but I have
switched gears and been lucky enough to get the opportunity to
pursue something I'm truly passionate about. In my "free time" I
also drive for Lyft (which is a blast) and do freelance graphic
design, apparel printing, and original artwork. I am all about
exploring whatever life throws my way. Why waste the best years of
my life behind a computer screen in a cubicle. I can always go back
to that, but right now I'm seeing what else is out there, and
having fun doing it!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've always been good at listening, giving advice and empathizing
with people. I would also say I'm good at astronomy and other geeky
activities. My roommate says I'm a good cook :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm usually smiling for "no reason" and being goofy, I can get
along with almost anyone and have no problem going out by myself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like all types of music, from ambient space music to trap and
grime. I am obsessed with Netflix and mostly like watching
documentaries or anything I could learn something from. I also love
dark comedies, any of Wes Anderson's movies, action, sci-fi, war
dramas, especially classics like the sand pebbles, bridge on the
river kwai, etc , epic fantasy adventures like lord of the rings
are great too just don't tell anyone k? my reputation would be
ruined! :) . Cooking is one of my favorite things to do so I like
to try lots of different things. Hard to pick favorites in that
area! Books.. lets see.. anything by Carl Sagan but that goes
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I can't think of anything at the moment so i'll just take the
literal approach. Water, Air, Sunlight, Gravity, food, shelter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where did we come from? Are we alone? What will the future look
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching Netflix, working on some art or design project,
photographing star clusters and nebulae , hanging out with friends
, concerts, shows etc
