Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love to learn and I'm always interested in trying new things. I
especially love learning new things about all aspects of the world.
I have a good sense of humor, but enjoy intellectual
I like to keep things classy in life, but have fun at the same
time. People I know say I look one way and act another (in the best
possible way!). Grad school keeps me busy, but I like to get out
when I can, but I found that I like to do different things
depending on where I am.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finishing up grad school, and then deciding where I want to go in
this big world.
Right now I got myself an amazing job working with kids...I have to
admit, I didn't see myself falling into this line of work back in
undergrad school, but to my surprise I really enjoy it. I even
changed my focus in grad school because of it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Telling stories, both from a professional sense (where it is
required) and just around friends/co-workers. I have an uncanny

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If my bow ties are clip-on, which I can tell you that they are most

my deadpan sense of humor too...

Help your potential matches find common interests.

Silverstien, lots and lots of various non-fiction books on history
and pop culture...
Movies: 80s movies of all sorts! I often can be heard making
obscure references to these "classics," in addition to foreign
films from around the world. In regards to more modern films I

...on television I'm often on the Food Network, Travel, Discovery,
or History channels...A HUGE PSYCH FAN...Gus is awesome :p I also
live The Office on a daily basis...
Music: Pretty much whatever is on the radio, through typically lots
of early 90's and 80's. I can often be heard humming to one-hit
Food: Japanese, Vietnamese, Chinese, Italian...looking for a place
that has good Indian food...so much food to list!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Some form of motor vehicle to get me from point A to point B
Technology in general
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Just buying a train ticket and riding up the Pacific Coast.
I think train travel is such a great mode of transportation that
people should use more. It really lets you sit back and reflect on
whatever is on your mind, while at the same time knowing your going
to end up somewhere new.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sometimes at a friend's house watching recent sporting events or at
the movies...just as likely though is relaxing at home.
