My self-summary
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 even keel.

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 fun.
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 see.
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

Family
Exercise (currently doing Cross Fit)
Internet
Change
Competition
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 things.
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 ;-).
