Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm usually a quiet person, but also sometimes geeky and kind of
proud of it. I'm always happy to enter a lively conversation or
discussion, as long as everyone is civil.
I like going out and catching movies, taking nature walks or
exploring Ohio's unique locales, but I'm also perfectly content
cuddling on the couch to watch TV. Honesty, respect, compassion and
a good sense of humor are important to me, and I try to foster the
same in my own personality.
I’m basically looking for someone to get to know. Somebody to spend
time with, to stay up late talking with about subjects ranging from
the silly to the profound. I laugh easily and like making my
friends laugh, even if it’s just hearing a few of my brother’s
awful puns. I enjoy small adventures like finding new bookstores,
obscure restaurants and nature spots, and it would be nice to share
those times with someone special.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am an electronic resource specialist at the OSU library. I work
with fascinating people from all over the world and there's always
something new and interesting to do. Working on campus is exciting
because something cool is usually going on. As an old friend told
me, "no job is better than one where you are surrounded by
In my spare time I work on my personal writing, and whenever
possible I take time for fitness, cooking, reading and keeping up
with my friends.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, conversation, and being a supportive older sibling. I
strive to be helpful and positive. I love conversations that begin
with light, mutual shared interest and evolve into in-depth
discussions of a movie, book or genre of fiction.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I love scifi, fantasy and suspense, so my book collection is a good
mix of classic and modern--Edgar Allen Poe, Asimov, Douglas Adams,
Philip K. Dick. I enjoy the work of Shelley (both Mary and Percy
Bysshe), and John Donne's poetry is always fun. I’d also really
like to get into Harry Potter more.
Castaway, Secondhand Lions and Finding Forrester are a few of my
top movies, and I can't say no to a good documentary. I also have a
soft spot for good animated movies, like Wall-E and How to Train
As for TV, Firefly, House MD and Star Trek are longtime favorites.
I've been getting into The Mentalist and Sherlock lately. I'd
really like to get into Doctor Who but I don't know where to start,
so hopefully I can find a Whovian on here.
For music I like a lot of classic rock, electronic, alternative and
80s bands, but I also own a few film scores--Jerry Goldsmith, Hanz
Zimmer and James Horner are my top three movie composers. I'm also
a Philip Glass fan. Offspring and Green Day are nostalgic for me
Food: I've tried everything from authentic Mexican to Japanese and
I like most of it. I also have some Italian heritage so I guess
it's natural that I love Italian food, but then I haven't met
someone who doesn't like it.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-
bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down
the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space."

My real name is at least partially based on an obscure old TV
reference. My folks are kind of geeky like that.
