Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let's get all of the cliches out of the way first. I hate laughing,
and I take short walks on the beach. I like being places, but I
I like to take things apart and see how they work, then put them
back together again (what are these extra pieces for? Oh well, I'm
sure they're not important...). That's probably why I love software
so much. Thousands of pieces of code, each with their function, all
working together in harmony... until something breaks, anyway. Then
I have to figure out what's wrong and fix it.
I like to explore. New places, new experiences, new people,
outdoorsy stuff -- they all offer new things to do. I master things
easily though, so I tend to get bored quickly.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been in the DC area for about 4 years. Recently I took the
plunge and bought a house in Sterling. I built a car-sized computer
controlled router in the garage that I call the Giant Death Robot,
and now I'm trying to start a business with it.
I try to run regularly to stay in shape. I've been known to go
. I'm also
not afraid to throw down in the video game
of your choice, though I
don't have as much time to play as I used to.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Pretty much anything I put some effort into. I have a pretty
uncanny ability to go from zero knowledge about something to
journeyman level. My parents were right -- I really can be anything
I want to be! Unfortunately, I still can't be everything I
want to be. As soon as I get a time machine (and immortality) I'll
finally accomplish my dream of being a
scientist/engineer/artist/lover/fighter/mage/thief/cleric. Piece of
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People keep telling me "You seem like a smart guy" after talking to
me for about 5 minutes. This is true, but I never expect people to
notice it so quickly.
Also, people tell me I'm very laid back. But you just read about my
desire to master everything, so that's not really true. It's
probably more accurate to say that I'm very tolerant of
Sometimes I also hear "Wow, you're funny". But they might just be
saying that as part of a vast worldwide conspiracy to get me to
tell my awful jokes to everyone, and I'm too dumb to notice! Those
bastards! Or maybe not.

This is one of the sections I never read in girls' profiles -- too
bland and formulaic. Thus, this section is now about pie.
Can you make a mean pumpkin or key lime pie? Please move to the
front of the line! You can shove some of the other women out of the
way if you have to.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The Interwebs, warm chocolate chip cookies, Parenthesis (no,
really), my awesome G1 Android phone (now my ancient G1 phone), and
spam email... ok, maybe not spam.
Fortunately, I *can* survive without food, water, oxygen, friends,
family, and sex.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Lately I've been designing things to make on my CNC router and
Mostly signs and decorations for now, but I've also been sketching
designs for furniture as well. Eventually, I plan to parley my
furniture-making skills into world domination. Like IKEA with

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The same thing I do every Friday night -- try to take over the
world! Accepting applications in advance for cabinet positions.

I've been told my gumbo is so good, I could open a restaurant in LA
and make a fortune. Tempting!
