My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Life can never become monotonous or exhaust the possibilities of variety." - Kircher

I like red wine, airports, cats & reading an actual newspaper.

I am the secret love child of Jean-Paul Sartre and Ally McBeal, with all of the attendant peculiarities.

OkCupid used to make you sum yourself up in three adjectives, for the benefit of those users too impatient to read an entire profile. For the record, I am intuitive, discerning, and analytical.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am promulgating an order I don't fully understand.

I am the driving force behind two consumer-facing technology startups, neither of which is making any money yet. Therefore, I have a 9 to 5 job too.

I finished grad school at the University of South Florida in 2010. I spent ten months out of the year working in East Africa hunting parasites in 2011 and 2012.

When I was in school I worked as a graphic designer at an ad agency and a clerk at an auction.

Before all that I served in AmeriCorps for two years.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
sleeping on airplanes

being an INTP
This is not low or self-deprecating standard. It is good to round out your rough edges. I have invested in that process.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Short hair, strange diction. The haircut is deliberate. The diction is not. It is an artifact of my monomaniacal interest in finding le mot juste.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Dune, Waking Life, zydeco and bananas.

House, among current options on the small screen.

I was a vegetarian for twelve years. I am drifting back in that direction, but it is a very slow drift... so slow that there are continents outpacing me at the moment.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A preoccupation with determining how little one can manage on is generally a trait of those who (like me) have never known great material want. These are the needs I have discovered along the way.

In no particular order:

1. Communication
2. Pockets
3. Sunshine
4. Aspiration
5. Transport
6. Wikipedia
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how I wish I could just answer this question by deleting the word "about."

- markets
- nomenclature
- the light that hits the room
- control and experimental groups
- how to explain my job to people
- iambs
- emergence
- tradeoffs
- rules
- international development, like everybody else in this town
- how the subjective experience of cognition would differ for us and other entities that I can metaphorically endow with some form of intelligence, like insect swarms and chess pieces. The bishop thinks the board looks like a diamond to you too, by the way.

Also, why is the artistic merit of a song inversely proportional to the euphoria produced by dancing to it at a club?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
working. I do not find work inherently burdensome. I do not find much inherent about anything. Also, I think Mike Rowe should be given a medal, as America's last living philosopher of work.

On the other hand, on a Friday night, I might be out on a date. DC is such a good place for that. Let's go to all of the restaurants! Let's order all of the wine!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't like chocolate ice cream. But I do like chocolate... and ice cream.

"Without your wounds where would your power be? It is your melancholy that makes your low voice tremble into the hearts of men and women. The very angels themselves cannot persuade the wretched and blundering children on earth as can one human being broken on the wheels of living. In Love’s service, only wounded soldiers can serve.” - Thornton Wilder

I am not into being silly. I sometimes end up being silly anyway.

I refer to cities by their airport code. More people should do this.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you think we might have some chemistry.

you picked kissing in a tent in the woods over kissing in Paris when you answered that match question. Make no mistake, I have been to Paris and it is great, but life in a tent comes along with more of my future ambitions. We could still kiss in Paris anyway. People have been known to do that.
