Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi my name is James. I really like talking to people and getting to
know them and making them laugh. I would like to think that I am
very easy to talk to and I try my best to be open about my opinions
while being open to the opinions of others. I am a very much a geek
at heart. I love science, computers both hardware and software,
science fiction, fantasy, video games, books, and movies. One of my
favorite things to do is cook with and for people, especially for
my friends and people I am getting to know.
Mostly I am just looking for someone to laugh and have fun with,
watch movies of all sorts, get to know well, and have interesting
conversations with and see where things go.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well, right now I am a student in Clarksville. I am about to
complete my degree in physics with minors in mathematics and
computer science. I do not think I want to go to graduate school
yet, but in a year or two I think I would like to get a masters
degree in engineering or something close to that. Until then I am
looking to try some technical jobs working with computers or
mathematics to see what kind of careers I would be happy with. As
well as trying to make new friends, and enjoy life as much as
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I like to think I am good at talking to people once the ice gets
broken, the first words are always the hardest. I enjoy listening
to what people have to say and I try really hard to be a good
friend. I try to be very patient and kind, life is just to short to
get mad at most things.
I do pretty well in school and my friends like to say that I am
smart, but I don't really see myself as a genius. I am pretty good
at problem solving and figuring out how things work.
Lastly, I would say that I am a pretty great cook, I really enjoy
cooking with or for someone. ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Personality wise, I would say that most people notice how friendly,
kind, and open I am, maybe laugh a little at my jokes.
Physically, I would say people notice my big blue eyes, my beard,
and that I am a little on the tall side.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Some of my favorite authors are Isaac Asimov, Frank Herbert, Orson
Scott Card, Anne McCaffrey, Anne Rice, and Garth Nix. I really
enjoy the different ideas they present in their writings and the
stories they tell. Science fiction is one of my favorite genres
because the writer has enough freedom to make an entirely new world
while at the same time presenting things that may be possible in
the future or that use principles of science we have today in new
ways which is really cool to think about.
As far as my movie tastes, I really enjoy documentaries, comedies,
science fiction and action movies a lot, but I am game for most all
movies at least once. There is a special place in my hear for bad
movies. They can be very entertaining. Some of the movies that I
have really enjoyed lately/would recommend are Her, Cloud Atlas,
Chillerama, Robot & Frank, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2,
In the music department, I am classic rock kind of guy, but I
really enjoy most of the range of rock and metal. Some of my
favorite bands are Queen, ACDC, System of a Down, and Styx, but I
enjoy most all of it. Other genres I really enjoy are Motown,
classical, electronic, electroswing, and funk. Some more recent
musicians that I really like are Macklemore, Pharrell Williams ,
and Daft Punk.
For food, I really enjoy most tastes and dishes. It comes with the
territory of being a cook. I love sweet tea and spaghetti, my mom
made it almost every week when I was a kid. Cantaloupe is really
one of the only things that I hate, especially in fruit salad. The
cantaloupe flavor poisons all the other fruit. XP
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend time thinking about lots of different things. Philosophy,
sociology, psychology, ethics, politics, sciences of all types, and
how things work or interact are all things I enjoy thinking about
and discussing. It is really fun to talk about why things are the
way they are or how things would work if things were different. I
try my best to keep an open mind to new ideas and to try to look at
things for as many different angles as I can.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
hanging out with friends and/or finishing the last of my
programming homework before the weekend. Netflix also is a good bet
for a Friday night, but every now and again I go out and about with

I never learned to ride a bike when I was a kid. My parents bought
me a bike one year for Christmas. When it got warmer and I was
learning to ride my bike, this kid at school tripped me and I broke
my wrist. I could not ride my bike for a few months and I kind of
forgot about it, so it rusted up and I never learned to ride a
