Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If I had to describe myself it would be as a Heinz 57 of the
highest caliber in both my heritage and personality traits.
I want to travel the world due in no small part for the ability to
meet new people and try and understand what makes humanity tick. I
have set the goal of traveling to all 7 continents (Yes, including
Antarctica). I have currently lived in Canada, visited Thailand and
visited Europe putting me at 3/7. I am making plans for a trip to
south america in June.
I also really enjoy social dancing. I do Salsa, Blues, East Coast
Swing, Lindy Hop and a bit of Ballroom. I think the part that I
really enjoy is the social interaction you get to have with the
other dancers. It is amazing how different some of the communities
are. Lindy Hoppers/Blues dancers some of the nicest. It is awesome
to go to random dance venues you have never heard of and have a
great night dancing and relaxing with friends. If anyone does
Modern, Ballet or Hip-Hop I would love to learn.
Despite bucking some Engineering stereotypes I do love a good Geek
out session. I love playing nerdy games with friends. I started a
group that meets every Sunday to get together and play games like
Magic: The Gathering, We Didn't Play Test This, Cards Against
Humanity, and Risk: Legacy. It is pretty hard to top for a Sunday
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just purchased my first home and am working an amazing
engineering job. The job is going really well and I have been
blessed with an amazing boss and incredible opportunities that have
panned out. I also have decided it was time to level up my grapple
skill IRL and have started taking Brazilian Ju Jitsu courses. I
have always wanted to learn a martial and it being practically
across the street is pretty awesome.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I love ballroom dancing, lindy hop, and swing dancing, which I've
been doing for the past five years or so. My dance partner and I
have been training for a ballroom competition in November.
Competitive ballroom dancing is an eternal battle of one step
forward, two steps back. Once you find a good partner and it works,
one of you will inevitably get a new job, move, or have some sort
of crisis. By the time December rolls around, we should be ready to
compete at the Open Amateur Novice/Pre-Novice level.
Oh, and swimming is one of my talents. I played Water Polo for 5
years and would describe myself as a water dog. I love swimming and
being in the water. LOVE IT. I want to get SUCBA certified. Once I
do, I will probably try and make it out to Hawaii or try to find
some great dives near LA.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The biggest thing that notice about is well...my biggest thing,
which is my hair.
During college it had a tendency to become impressively large and
has been compared to:
1) A Super-Sayan
2) A Werewolf
3) A Large Shrub
That being said I have managed to rein the beast in but when works
gets hectic it has a tendency to grow quite large.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite books tend to be Science Fiction:
Enders Game and Dune are two that come to mind. I also just
finished Collapse by Jared Diamond. A really great read really
information dense but some insightful information. I recently
finished Neuromancer and have been waiting for Cloud Atlas to be
returned at my local library.
Music is a grab bag. It could be anything from Electronic to
Sinatra. There is a time and a place for everything. Just went and
saw Florance and the Machine last weekend.
Movies. I am a huge nerd and LOVE the original Trilogy of Star
Wars. Other than that I can get entertainment out of movies but
they are not really my thing.
Food. I will try almost anything and like most things. I love great
food and really want to find more.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future and big ideas. I am a bit of a dream but also a
pragmatist (A contradiction I know). I wonder about the path that
humanity will wander down in the next few generations. I wonder
what diseases will be cured by the time I am "old". Personally, I
hope it goes Alzheimer, Cancer and Aging, in that order.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going out with a group of friends to go dancing. If you know where
to look there is dancing of some kind in the greater LA area. I
always try to find it. If I don't know of any I call some friends
to find out.
