Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
According to the Nerd-Geek-Dork Test on here, I'm "pure nerd." But
I've always felt like more of a geek. I've never been very good at
math and I can't fix your computer. However, I'm passionate about
the things I love and endlessly fascinated by all kind of new
things. I'm the guy you want on your trivia team.
I have a film degree and I'm a trained projectionist so I am very
passionate about movies, though I gravitate more towards the goofy
and odd than what one might expect. I've seen more zombie and
vintage Jackie Chan films than a productive human being probably
should. My hobby is nature videography.
I've always enjoyed making people laugh and I spend much of my time
trying to do that. I'm very laid back, and open minded, and tend
not to take too many things too seriously. I'm the type that
notices the person who's not having fun and focuses on trying to
get them to have some fun, whether it's at work or play.
Overall, I don't know if I'm more Nerd, Geek, or Dork. I guess I'd
like to think I'm an odd but fun hybrid of all three. Hopefully
you'll think so too!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, saving up to travel again. Trying to write more often,
maybe re-kickstart the ancient art of letter writing. Trying to
finish a 2000 piece jigsaw puzzle slowly but surely. Learning to
cook more things, to learn French and Maori, see more movies, try
out more restaurants, and of course meet new people. But that one
you probably knew already.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making people laugh, even if it's at my own expense. Learning new
things, making work fun. I'm good at sales though I don't enjoy it
as much as I once did. Learning new languages. Making scrambled
eggs. Rubber band marksmanship. Exploring and learning about new
places. Apparently not so great at jigsaw puzzles. Giving advice
although I seem to be totally immune to my own, for some reason.
Putting a tent up in the rain. Getting a smile out of someone who
doesn't feel like smiling. Being able to tell you the name of that
actor who was in that movie about the thing and what's-her-name was
in it too (The answer, by the way, is Stephen Tobolowsky.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My glasses and my smirk. My glasses because even though I have
contact lenses, wearing glasses feels more like me, a bit nerdy and
introspective. My smirk because it seems to be there most of the
time, be it a sarcastic smirk or a playful one to let you know I'm

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A notebook and a reliable pen, camera, digital video camera, Lucky
Charms, Netflix, and a stack of good books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Hey, remember when Shark Week was cool? My writing, new ideas for
stories. How to get people to try new things instead of following
the crowd. How to not follow the crowd. Where to go for dinner. If
time travel is ever going to be possible... where are all the time
travelers? Why I'm not as excited about the new Star Wars movies as
I probably should be. Why Americans care more about what Lindsay
Lohan is doing than they do about people in other countries with no
access to clean water. Traveling again very soon. Getting back to
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Typically I'm working. If not, then maybe seeing an opening night
movie or trying out a new restaurant. Continuing on my quest to
find the best burger in Milwaukee. Or I might be relaxing at home
playing video games. Or finding something weird or goofy on Netflix
that I wouldn't publicly admit to watching.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

you like a good zombie flick (or even a bad one... hell, especially
a bad one), spiders don't scare you, you're not averse to sleeping
outdoors and possibly even away from indoor plumbing, you like
seafood (the odder the better), you enjoy a nice long hike or a day
trip to some new interesting locale or travel in general. You can
quote "Ghostbusters" or "The Goonies." You know who Bruce Campbell
is. You want to check out that new french bistro or that new
indie/horror/Matt-Damon-kicking-someone's-ass film and don't feel
like going alone. Or if you're an interesting, original, fun kind
of person who likes interesting, original, fun conversation.
