Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What's up my name is Derek.
I am a nerd, I love video games, comics, sci-fi movies and other
shit like that. I am a huge philly sports fan except for
basketball, into the eagles and phils and I rarely miss watching a
Flyers game. I love to argue, with the exception of politics I can
spend hours going back and forth with someone. Recently I've goteen
into wood carving, I used to work as a carpenter before I got my
degree so I like to keep busy with handyman stuff and making some
cool shit from wood.
I am shy when in public, but in a private setting I am an open
book. I do not deal with crowds well at first, so you will not find
me on the dancefloor in clubs or sceney bars unless I have already
had a few drinks. I prefer dives and places that sell craft beer
but will go anywhere at least once.
My buddies and I have been brewing our own beer for just over a
year, we have made a pretty tasty root beer ale and have 12 recipes
total. We hope to make a business out of it eventually, maybe open
a bar up in a few years.
I work as an engineer for a public utility in their fleet
operations department. I get to work with cars, trucks, and
construction equipment every day, pretty sweet stuff.

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Looks wise pretty much the beard. I do my best to keep it trimmed
nice. Otherwise most people tend to notice my awkward sense of
humor. No topic is too serious for me to poke fun at.

expensive. Also enjoy most mexican and italian foods. Love me some
I know video games isn't a section but I am going to put it in
I play Gears of War 3, Starcraft 2, Team Fortress 2, and
CounterStrike most of the time but I love getting nostalgic
sometimes with some Legend of Zelda or older Final Fantasy or
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My five best friends
2) My dog
6) My tools
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Zombie Apocalypse (or liberation, depending on your stance on
-How awesome I would be in a band.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either at home catching up on my shows, gaming with friends, or out
drinking and being social. If I am out usually I am at a craft beer
bar trying a recipe I've never had, and if I like it may try to
replicate it with my homebrew.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I tend to put too many eggs in one basket
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-You like the Flyers, and pretty much all hockey.
-You want to go fishing and do outdoorsy stuff.
-You want to talk about brewing beer or beer in general.
-You are willing to sing duets in my car.
-I have a rifle and shotgun, plan on getting more, so if you like
guns that's a huge plus.
-I'm not a big fan of kids, so if you have a child or are looking
to have children, sorry I'm not interested. I respect the level of
responsibility and maturity that goes into being a parent, but that
is not the lifestyle I want to have.
