Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I feel like I have a strong grasp on what makes me happy, where I
want to go, and who I want to be. My career is on a great path in
the games industry, where I write stories for a successful bay area
game studio. I'm a book nerd who also loves to cook and swordfight
in the park on weekends. I have lots of great friends in the area
after only living here a few years--all I'm missing is someone
particularly special to share in the fun.
My MBTI type is INFJ.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a content designer for a mobile games company. Right now, that
means I spend a large part of my day writing dialog and quests
about cute animals. I get to read a lot of Wikipedia. Did you know
that the Nahuatl word for armadillo translates to
In my free time, I read a lot, I write a little, I cook, I
swordfight in the park, and I practice guitar.
Life is good--I have a solid idea of who and what makes me happy, I
know how to seek that happiness, and I'm (almost) always willing to
try something new.
If it all falls apart, I plan to keep goats for cheese and bees for
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, when I'm not abandoning the recipe halfway through to test
a weird idea about flavor combinations. Lately, I've been messing
around with creamed spinach. Mmm.
Unquenchable optimism helps here, too. I try to find the best in
the people and situations around me, and I like to see that
attitude rub off on folks.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a pretty strong stage presence wherever I go. My voice is
strong and my expressions are animated. I laugh frequently and from
the gut. I smile a lot, and always mean it. I have unusually long
eyelashes for a guy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love science fiction, bad movies, heavy metal, and meat. Right
now, I'm reading Preacher while I wait for the next Hellboy In Hell
trade to come out, but I'm also poking through the 5th edition
D&D books and the new Neal Stephenson book of optimistic
I'm listening to a lot of Sonata Arctica, ambient music overlaid
with historical NASA radio chatter, and falling asleep most nights
to "Listen to Wikipedia" (http://listen.hatnote.com
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Optimism, novelty, healthy attachment, a small measure of
sacrosanct personal space, an intrinsically-derived goal, and good
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Most of my thinking time happens during my walk to the BART. Are we
in a tech bubble? What will I do if it pops? When am I ever going
to get around to all those games I bought on Steam? When's the last
time I called my folks (inevitably, "about a week ago")?
Occasionally (and enjoyably), deeper bits of metacognition.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sitting on my back porch and talking to the cat that lives on my
block while he lets me pet him. It's cathartic; he keeps showing
up, and I keep having stuff to say. A few weeks ago, he finally let
me touch his belly. He is the king of the block, and I am his
When not opportunistically cat-talking, I love to go to the movies.
Movies themselves are fun, but the ritual of going to the theater
is special, even if the movie stinks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have always wanted to be a wizard, and I would change careers at
the drop of a hat if wizard became a viable option.
Bonus Knowledge: The city of San Francisco requires that all
cartomancers, psychometrists, phrenologists, scryers,
rhabdomancers, mediums, seers, astrologers, necromancers, and
telepaths etc. be licensed with the SFPD to tell fortunes, cast
spells, and/or pretend to tell fortunes and cast spells. This is a
true fact that I did not make up. The license costs $350, and if
you want to obtain it, the police are required to post a public
notice on the place where you intend to do these things so that all
your neighbors are informed of your intent.

If you've made it this far, you should probably say hi! Doubly so
if you're happy, but not yet satisfied.
