Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm the kind of guy who astounds people with a vault of random
knowledge. I like to cultivate a wide range of (often geeky)
hobbies, but still pursue them vigorously. I'm an engineer and a
scientist at heart but also have an eye for the arts. I'm happiest
when I'm learning new things.
Despite my diverse interests, I'm known for usually being quiet and
reserved. I prefer small gatherings of close friends over loud,
I've been told I have a dry, clever sense of humor, but I
appreciate goofy absurdities too. I've also been told I'm a good
listener. I don't have any pets right now, but grew up with all
kinds of animals (cats, dogs, fish, lizards, hermit crabs).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I write training simulation software for the government. It's a
little bit like making video games for Uncle Sam. I love it.
I've also been focusing on getting in shape. I started jogging and
actually kind of enjoy it. There's a lot of great trails near my

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Besides working with my computers, I'm an excellent cook.
I love mastering new recipes to share with people, from down-home
country comfort food to exotic South-East Asian delicacies.

I read a lot of science fiction, but I like to mix in plenty of
other genres. Top current authors: Larry Niven, Stephen King,
Patrick Rothfuss, Jim Butcher, John Scalzi, Kevin J. Anderson, and
Current favorite TV shows: Mythbusters, The Daily Show, Colbert
Report, Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Dexter,
HIMYM, BBT, and Lilyhammer.
Past favorites: Farscape, Firefly, Star Trek (all of them),
Stargate (all of them), Battlestar Galactica, House, Chuck, Lost
(except the ending), and Seinfeld.
My music tastes tend to shift, but lately I trend towards power
metal. In the past I've chilled out to techno/trance, jazz, and
even classical music.
I'm an adventurous eater and love trying new things, especially
exotic Asian food. Chinese pot-sticker dumplings are my absolute
favorite things to eat/make. However, I still love a good plate of
pasta or some down-home country cookin'.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My own future. I tend to get lost in my head planning out parts of
my own life. However, I find things rarely work out the way I
imagine, and I'm at my best when I abandon preconceptions and just
go with the flow.
Also sometimes I like to think of what I would do in case of a

Friday isn't really my preferred night, but Saturday...
Going to hang out with friends, possibly eat out, BBQ, visit a bar,
or catch a movie. Sometimes we even have "game night" and break out
random board games or party games.
