Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am fascinated with the stage. I haven't been a part of any stage
production in quite a few years now, but that doesn't keep me from
enjoying Broadway music, and the rare live performance.
I've always enjoyed being a part of behind the scenes - as either
cast or crew, either one is fun for me. This extends beyond just
drama for me. I love working behind the curtain in any sort of
production, which led me to working security at conventions on the
east coast. When working behind the scenes like this, much of the
magic is spoiled for me - but instead, I get to be part of the
I would self describe as a geek. I've been playing role-playing
games for many years now. My need to create expresses itself here
as well - I am usually the one running the game, planning the story
for other players.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently I work at a board game store, which suits me just fine. I
actually found the job partially through my work at conventions -
the company spends a large amount of time selling at conventions,
so my background most certainly helped me get this position. I
travel to shows around twice a month, and run the booth in the expo
hall of various conventions.
I'm satisfied with my job, and my hometown. I am looking to settle
in Troy. Of course, I always have a backup plan for the future -
should I feel it is time to move on, I want to take my experience
and start a small shop of my own.
Recently, I have had LASIK surgery. It is something I am still
raving about. I love waking up able to see!
My work schedule includes weekends, so I've been having some
trouble meeting new people in the area. Hence, this profile.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can list many of the typical geek stuff here - computers, role
playing, board games, bad puns...
I'm good at logic problems. Sometimes I catch myself treating real
life problems like logic problems, sometimes to great results -
other times, it's just plain silly.
I'm good at being patient with people. I would call myself a good
listener, but I'm even better at supplying a shoulder for
I'm good at pretending to be good at cooking. I have a small list
of recipes that I have gotten fairly good at. I often find myself
reading a recipe for inspiration, and then deviating heavily from
what the recipe suggests.
I'm good at driving long distances. I've driven as far as Oklahoma
to visit a friend graduating from Army basic training.
I'm good at juggling devil sticks.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height. At 6'3", and fairly thin, my height stands out quite a
bit. I'd like to think my smile comes a close second.

I refuse to pick a favorite. They are all my favorites.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My eyesight, smiles from strangers, bad puns, geek chats,
creativity, the stage.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Beliefs. I am fascinated by the myriad of beliefs in our world, and
how they shape a person. Beliefs shape our society more than facts
do - which can be as uplifting as it can be frightening. I spent a
year of my life questioning everyone I knew on their beliefs, and I
received many beautiful answers.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
As I work most weekends, I'm just going to replace 'Friday' with

When I'm in the mood for something more social, I'll call up a few
friends for some board games and a few drinks. From time to time,
I'll spend my Sundays driving out to Boston to visit friends for my
(slightly offset) weekend.
