Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Dear Santa: I'm writing to inform you that I've been naughty, and
it was worth it. You fat, judgmental bastard.
Ah, the holidays are upon us. Sipping brandy by the fire, with the
music low, watching the snow fall outside. Cruising the slopes and
snowshoeing in the woods. Not to mention gorging on holiday food.
Me? I grew up in the Denver area, but never really properly
appreciated the mountains before moving away. Now that I'm back,
I've been finding a nice hike or ride is an excellent way to get
some perspective. Also potentially on the docket: fun cultural
excursions, sushi/pho/thai/indian restaurants, happy hours, coffee
and chitchat, ...
You'll find me at my best when I'm engaged, when I'm challenged,
and when I'm curious. I'd be lost without goals to strive for,
plans to hatch, and hurdles to clear.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Academically: I finished my B.S. in Math/Physics a while back, and
my Master's in Computer Science more recently. I just started
another Master's in Applied Statistics in 2012, which I am excited
Professionally: I moved out to San Diego a few years back for a
consulting gig, then moved out to New York for a position doing
healthcare claims analysis, and then finally came back to Colorado
to be with friends and family. Currently, I am working as a
developer/analyst for a marketing services firm.
Recreationally: I do a lot of cycling, since I'm pretty close to
Cherry Creek park (DTC area). I got in my first snowboarding season
earlier this year, which was awesome. My big summer project is to
get into scuba diving (hatching plans to dive Honduras or the
Philippines at some point). I tried back country ski touring this
year - challenging, but fun! I definitely want to do more hikes
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I was going to put "procrastinating", but I'll get to that
What else? Solving problems. Being patient and objective. Never
misplacing anything. Keeping promises. Keeping secrets (seriously,
I think that there might only be one or two other people left on
Earth who can actually keep a secret if asked to).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I haven't been doing much recreational reading lately (I
should get back into that - got a recommendation?), but I was
getting into a bit of Kurt Vonnegut a while ago. Lately I've been
reading more academic stuff, with a side of political/economic. I'm
also an online news junkie.
Movies: A couple that come to mind: A Beautiful Mind, A Scanner
Darkly, Fight Club, Inception, Kill Bill, The Matrix, Memento,
Office Space, Pi, Pulp Fiction, Requiem for a Dream, Sin City,
Snatch, Team America - World Police, Trainspotting, Waking Life.
Netflix thinks I have a thing for comedy and "cerebral" pics.
Shows: Niche sitcoms (RIP 30 Rock / The Office), off-color comedies
(Southpark, Family Guy). Some Discovery programs (Mythbusters FTW).
Daily show and Colbert. Game of Thrones - at first so I would have
more conversation material with various acquaintances, but now just
because I've gotten kind of into it. Catching up on Walking Dead at
Food: I'm on a mad Asian kick lately. Know any good Asian Fusion
places I haven't tried yet? More generally just about any ethnic
cuisine rates highly with me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Lately? Escaping to somewhere tropical. Anilao? Roatan/Utila?
Cozumel? Bonaire? So many options...
When I'm more focused: National and world events, and what they
mean. Career and academic goals.
When I'm less focused: Brewing the perfect cup of coffee
. Internet culture. Language,
psychology, and social dynamics. Whatever other oddball topics I
can concoct in the name of procrastination.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends, usually. I wouldn't mind mixing in a few
more outings, though. Maybe catch a show, shoot some pool, do the
whole first friday art walk.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was an undergrad, I wanted to get my PhD in mathematics, and
go into academic research. I was really passionate about it, in
ways that are hard to describe in a few short sentences. That isn't
how things ended up going, and I'm happy with the achievements and
career I have now, but looking back I'll always wonder: what would
my life be like if I had chased that dream...

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'd like to meet a girl who is compassionate, energetic, and fun to
be with. I guess that's pretty generic. I've always been a pretty
academic and career focused person, and I've tended to gravitate
towards the same, but fun, excitement, and positive energy are what
I'm really looking for!
