Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
You know how hard it is to sum up everything about yourself. The
rest of my profile pointedly answers questions. But here's a list
of the things that are the biggest parts of my life:
- My family
- Work (9-5 job, as a programmer)
- Board games
- Identity as an Atheist
- The outdoors and ties to my old Venturing Crew
- A strong drive for both tons of social interaction and tons of
- Nerdy stuff
- Environmentalism and Recycling
- Intellectualism (Maybe the only dude I know to find intelligence
to be the most attractive thing about a person)
- Electric blankets
- Good beer and good wine
Alright, onto the real profile if you identify with any of those
things and might still be interested...
I live an active, busy life and overbook myself intentionally. My
friends tell me to relax once in a while and I do my best not to
My life is programming, the outdoors, nerd culture, and Brazilian
Jiu-Jitsu. If you're somehow also interested in all of these
things, we share the same brand of insanity and I would absolutely
love to meet you.
Psychology is fun to think about, so if you care about the
Myers-Briggs, I'm an ESTJ. That basically means I'm a solid leader
and the life of the party....but only if no one else claims those
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been practicing BJJ 4-6 days a week, working, reading novels
my friends suggest, running, and occasionally spending too much
time on Reddit.
In the other bits of free time I have, I'm building a bottle cap
table, putting together a 3000-piece 3D puzzle, playing board games
(Android: Netrunner, anyone?), trying to find someone else who
wants to go skydiving, and being a Royals fan in the middle of
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Skiing, climbing, board games, poorly re-telling jokes, puns, and
cooking everything except ribs, which turn out black and charred
every single time.
And being different. Who wants to be normal; there's nothing
exciting or new happening if everyone else is already there!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...are that I'm hyper-ultra-competitive and that I view absolutely
everything in life as a game or contest.
I'm honestly not sure what else people notice first; folks have
mentioned that my eyes always show my true feelings, so those
wonderful after-h's? (Eh? Eh?)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Harry Potter series, Eragon Series, House of Leaves, A song
of Ice and Fire, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Moneyball
Shows: The League, iZombie, HIMYM, Walking Dead, Agents of
S.H.I.E.L.D., BMS. I'm not ashamed to admit that I find dumb,
perverted college humor hilarious and love movies and shows that
use it. (Looking at you, Seth Rogan.) That being said, I generally
prefer shows that make a person think.
Movies: The Guardian, The Great Escape, the new Batman trilogy,
Dodgeball, Inception, The Adjustment Bureau. Anything that either
makes you think hard about something, ties action into a good
story, or does an exceptionally good job at dumb humor.
Music: Anything but "ghetto rap," slow country, or repetitive hip
hop, works for me. Nightcore, mashups, pop country, and classic
rock tend to be my go-tos.
Food: I follow a fairly strict diet and really care about what goes
into my body and how I feel. When I do pull a human and cheat on
that diet, it tends to be with pizza, chocolate milk, or a good
glass of wine.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-- The internet and my computer. It's good to be a nerd.
-- BJJ. Mentioned it thrice now. It's a wonderful thing - workouts,
brotherhood, and a sink for my incredibly competitive spirit all in
-- Cell phone. Not even kidding; it's almost a necessity.
-- Sleep. I simply do not understand how people survive on less
than 5 hours of sleep a night.
-- Puzzles and logic problems. No seriously, I once bought a book
not to read it but to solve the puzzle contained within it.
-- Intelligence. So I kind of naturally have very little respect
for unintelligent people and it's the only thing that would make me
a bad person that I don't really feel bad about.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-- How to make myself a better person.
-- Why people don't consistently change their opinion when proven
wrong. And how easy it is to educate oneself with "The Google" when
such a person tries to explain said opinion with faulty
-- Why everyone in the Walking Dead can only speak in a dramatic
tone of voice.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
usually hanging out with friends - it's been a long time since I've
had a quiet Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have 2 3D puzzles serving as decoration in my room.
There's nothing I really need to hide. I'm an open book - AMA!
