Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! This is a pretty old profile, and is embarrassingly out of date
(like, by a few years) I need to update it... anyway, until I do,
here's the old stuff:
I am mellow, caring, inquisitive and independent. I love exploring
all that life has to offer, trying new things, seeing new places
and trying out new ideas.
I try hard to foster a child-like sense of wonder about the world.
Many people lose that. There are so many amazing things to see and
do in this life, and I want to experience as much of it as I can. I
have a fear (hopefully irrational) that someday I will become
complacent and boring, and settle into a routine that saps the
"interesting" out of my life.
I am an agnostic atheist but not militant about it, and do not try
to sway others from their beliefs. I love to explore ideas in
religion as they relate to culture and history.
I am politically independent but lean liberal, especially on social
issues. I tend to avoid politics on the whole, especially since I
believe cultural change is much more important.
I spend much of my free time with friends and colleagues, and often
enjoy a relaxing night of good conversation. I love the outdoors,
camping, fishing, playing frisbee golf, walking through the woods,
or practicing photography. I also love the indoors, movies,
reading, and exploring the internet. Travel is also a passion,
especially road trips and unplanned exploration of new
I love cultures and society, and especially love fringe cultures.
It is fascinating to me how with the advent of the internet, people
with whatever obscure interest, desire or belief can find others
and form a community. There are thousands of micro-cultures made
possible by the internet, and I love spending time learning about
them, especially the "weird" ones.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently made the decision to have a go at following my dreams
and doing what I want with my life. So far, it is going well!
I work with software, mostly consulting with a long-term permanent
part time position that provides a layer of stability and benefits
over the typical consulting roller-coaster ride.
I also have small shop in my garage where I build things to express
a more creative side and balance out the cerebral work of software
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I love to cook, and like most things in my life, I love to
experiment and try new things. Some ideas work, some are amazing,
and some are hideously awful in an almost Lovecraft-ian sense. Pro
tip: never combine sauerkraut and cream cheese.
I am great at learning new things which matches well with my
I have always had a bond with technology, and started programming
when I was very young. I've always loved logic puzzles, and
programming is like getting to solve puzzles all day and be paid
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My quiet nature. I am an introvert and though I love crowds and
meeting people, I can be a bit of a wallflower.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
For books, movies and TV, I enjoy documentaries, adventure,
speculative sci-fi, and anything related to travel and
For food, I love everything interesting. Small diners and
hole-in-the-walls with simple but amazing food, black tie dinners
with elegant and artful presentation, unusual and culturally varied
cuisines from every continent but Antarctica, and especially small
locally owned places where the owners are passionate about what
they do. I love the refinement and perfection of French and
Japanese cuisine. I love the warmth of a good vietnamese pho or the
homeyness of long smoked barbeque. I feel comfortable with either
grits or Foie Gras. Food has long been a passion of mine that I
picked up from my father who had a culinary streak.
Musically, I am eclectic and have enjoyed everything from metal to
rap to classical spanish guitar. Mostly though, I listen to pop,
indie rock, folksy stuff, hip-hop and atmospheric electronica. If I
am on a long drive alone, I prefer audio books.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Assuming the basic needs are met:
The internet. A sense of wonder and curiosity. Challenging projects
to work on. Interesting people to talk to. New things to learn.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether the Technological Singularity is really inevitable or even
possible, and if it will happen in my lifetime. What new things
will be revealed/discovered/invented in the next few years. What's
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Typically I am at home watching a movie, reading, or working in the
shop. I am not really a go out on friday-night kind of
I do however try to make it to First Fridays when I can, it is cool
to see such a live and thriving art scene in Kansas City.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm Bi. Really! I have had relationships with both men and women,
of varied ages and sizes. To me, I am more interested in who
someone is than what they are physically.
Also, though I try hard to be an honest person, but I am often more
closed and private than I would like. However, if you ask me a
question I will always answer as truthfully as I can.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you made it though my rambling, over-wordy, probably too
serious, vaguely specific (or specifically vague) profile, surely
you should take a moment and say hi!
