Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Finished grad school, now working in Connecticut.
Now in Pittsburgh! Had a blast climbing Kilimanjaro and am now
settling in to my new life as a graduate student.
I'm pretty straight-forward and honest - sometimes too honest. I
prefer to remain positive and the only thing I really hate is
hatred; it's rarely useful. I'm _always_ up to do anything,
schedule permitting, and I'll very, very rarely flake. Balance and
moderation are key to me - I've had plenty of excesses and I'm sure
I'll have more (they're fun!!) but I strive towards maintaining an
Born in DC but moved to Lubbock, Texas at 11. Graduated from Rice
with a degree in Electrical Engineering and am off to pursue an MBA
at CMU (Tepper, in Pittsburgh) this fall. I've worked primarily in
consulting in the interim, currently in healthcare. I enjoy
reading, board games and trying random new things (usually found
via meetup.com or through friends). Travel rocks. I'm pretty into
robotics. I bicycle as a hobby; hiking / camping with friends is
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I feel like I answered this in the above. Hmm. I guess I can add
that I'm probably going to focus on Information Systems at CMU and
work with NREC there to create a business around robotics. That
seems awfully specific for such a long-term plan, though, so we'll
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making plans? And acting on them. I used to play clarinet and
piano; I was pretty decent at those.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't generally ask. Probably my height.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: science fiction (Asimov, Heinlein, Niven, Pournelle),
fantasy (Tolkien, Dragonlance series), occasionally throw-away
books (Crichton, Clancy, etc.). I'm currently in the middle of Mere
Christianity (recommended by a friend studying to become a priest;
I enjoyed Narnia much more before I realized it was a Christian
allegory :)). (Yes, I also enjoy parenthetical expressions)
Movies: Anything thought-provoking or seemingly profound. American
History X, Inception, etc. Light fare is often welcome, too :)...
The Incredibles is amazing.
Shows: Daily Show / Colbert Report, Fringe, Castle, Always Sunny
for current shows.
Music: Eminem tops my list. Honestly pretty much anything depending
on the venue and mood.
Food: Italian, Mexican, Greek, American
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Exercise (currently doing Cross Fit)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Work, current interests (working out, robotics, business school
planning), free time activities
How to achieve efficiency, minimalism, and transparency in all
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
with friends. I'm in the enviable state of meeting lots and lots of
new people through school so weekends are staying pretty full at
the moment. Went white-water rafting yesterday (7/31/11, a Sunday)
and have been checking out all the Shadyside, Ellsworth and Station
Square bars and clubs.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not a big fan of privacy. The only limitations I place on my
communications are more for the hearing party than for myself -
some people just aren't interested in knowing all my thoughts as
they form, for some reason :).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you'd like to hang out. I'm not really into pen-paling it. Going to
a bar, restaurant, coffee shop or whatever doesn't mean we have to
spend the rest of our lives together ;-).
