Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like learning and understanding things. My parents used to rip
their hair out when I would take apart my new toy before we even
got it home because I wanted to know how it worked. I like to
consider myself erudite, with all of the snarky implications that
go along with it.
I like to say that I know a little about a lot of things. Of
course, being a geek, there's a good number of things that I know
WAY too much about. I try to shield others from the worst of those
I like words and collect them like curios. I'm always looking for
an excuse to bust out an obscure but perfectly apropos one.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After having bounced between jobs for a while I'm trying to buckle
down and advance forward in my career instead of a series of
lateral moves. I work at Microsoft (That almost seems cliched,
doesn't it? A geek in Seattle working at Microsoft?)
I moved to Seattle about five years ago and it's the first place
that I intentionally moved to. I'm trying to put down roots in my
adopted city. That means friends, relationships, etc. Honestly
feels a little unnerving to think about the future and not have to
wonder where I'll be living a year down the road.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Wow, I guess modesty just gets thrown out the window on this
question. I'm pretty technically minded. I can fix or jerry-rig
most things. Currently I'm on a bit of a high from replacing the
battery in my car. It's not it's a huge achievement, it's just
another field that I've always wanted to master.
The first things people usually notice about me

I'm a huge geek. Tech, science, nerdy culture, they're all a part
of my life.
I like to laugh and entertain people with my dry humor. On a good
day this can be incredibly charming and endearing. On a bad day I
can come off really creepy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

My dad introduced me to Lord of the Rings at an early age and it
has remained one of my favorite books series. I took a class on the
works of Tolkien in college and even went so far as to get a
I really like Cohen brothers' comedies (Intolerable Cruelty, O
Brother, Where art Thou? and especially The Big Lebowski). Their
dramas, not so much.
I'm absolutely obsessed with anything written by Aaron Sorkin
(Sports Night, Charlie Wilson's War, West Wing). His dialogue style
If you really want to get a feel for my personality, here are some
of the webcomics I enjoy: Penny Arcade, XKCD, Saturday Morning
Breakfast Cereal, Dork Tower, PvP and Questionable Content.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This question is just a bit too existential for my tastes. On the
surface it's a very materialistic question but of course it's a way
to explain deep truths about yourself. Just a bit too clever for
If I didn't have Internet access of some sort (computer,
smartphone, whatever) I'd feel a bit lost. Not being able to look
up the primary social contributions of Gore Vidal on a whim would
feel like I had a limb amputated.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The causes of the world's ills.
Do different colored M&M's really taste different?

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...the same thing we do every night Pinky.
Let's assume I'm not working. There's a better than average chance
I'm playing games (video, board, RPG, what-have-you). If that bit

I like going out to eat with friends, seeing movies, bowling. I
don't usually like spending too much time alone or I get a bit
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I really dislike bacon. No, seriously, I don't like the flavor, the
smell, anything about it. *Protects head from incoming rocks*
