Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Born and raised in a burb outside of Boston, I attended UMass -
Amherst (class of 09) and promptly moved to Chicago to try to make
my way in finance but it nearly killed my soul and so I moved back
to New England in 2013 to the chagrin of evil villains
I love reading and writing and I'm working on my first book.
My guinea pig is named Gertie. She enjoys sitting down and eating
hay and hiding in her pigloo when I walk by. She warms up to people
after some bribing with some really sweeet hay.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a computer developer for a former startup. We got bought
recently and I made absolutely no money from the acquisition.
While the job is fun at times, it is also, brace yourself, a job.
So I require outside stimulation. I get that through volunteering,
being with friends, and writing.
I want to start my own coffeehouse and then convert it into a beer
garden in the evening when the weather is nice.
I'm trying to relearn Spanish after not using it since high school.
It's amazing how much has stuck with me and hoping I can become
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've been told by friends that I can open jars in an efficient way
and have been known to open the jars without prompting. It is said
that I'm supernaturally in tune with the jars and the amount of
force it takes to open one. It is rumored that peanut butter jars,
specifically of the organic variety, whisper my name behind closed
cabinet doors and shelves of supermarkets with a mixture of fear
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If you call me, the first thing you will notice is that I said
"Yellow" instead of "Hello".
If you're a child and you see me on the street, you will reach for
my glasses and/or beard and be generally rude while also incredibly
If you're a dog, you'd say I'm a weird looking dog but I smell
If you're my parents, you will notice I've forgotten
If you're a peanut butter jar of the organic variety, you will keep
your distance and eye me warily and with great prejudice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Anything by Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, Roberto Bolaño, Gogol,
Alice Munro, JM Coetzee. Invisible Man. My favorite book is Moby
Dick. I read a lot. Fiction is my choice but nonfiction is my
vocation. Will be tackling Middlemarch soon......
Good good movies and good bad movies.
Jazz, classical, some indie rock, any hip-hop, and any electronic
stuff. Philip Glass is my hero but I could understand if you can't
stand him. Pixies are obligatory. Bowie too. My appreciate for
Wu-tang grows every year.
almonds, avocados, coffee. I eat chicken but try to avoid pig and
cow when I can, for ethical reasons.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A nice suit
A pair of nunchucks
A sick beat
A firm mattress
And some omega3 capsules.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My next vacation idea. The truth is that I have yet to have the
opportunity to leave these United States so I'm trying to figure
out a way to (cheaply!) visit Europe, Asia, South America, the
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
According to my personal Fortune Teller, I'll be at a concert of an
unknown band talking to the person on my right and left and
repeating a joke I heard a couple of days ago. I will have a beer
in my hand. I will have a good time. Otherwise, I'll be at home
reading or watching a movie. And, according to my personal Fortune
Teller, will also be having a good time.
(I don't actually have a personal Fortune Teller...)
