Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have an awesome but busy career that keeps me working on
community art projects, collecting artifacts, and interviewing
locals. It's a pretty sweet gig where I get to meet interesting
people, visit hidden places, and have random experiences. For now I
split my time between working in an archive and the living the life
of a UCLA grad student.
To balance myself out I like to read, write, and practice my
bartending skills with friends.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've found a career in archives that I absolutely love. I'm at UCLA
at least twice a week depending on how many papers are due or in
Orange County the rest of the week for work. This means that most
of my outings are late journeys to see what is still open. I love
roller coasters, eating tasty food, and being exposed experiences
& ideas. During my downtime, I enjoy reading, NPR, TED talks,
anime, video games, and web surfing. My outdoor interests include
running, hiking, and urban exploring.
I'm always looking for convention or concert buddies. I tend to
make it over to Lightning in a Bottle, EDC, and AX as much as I
can. I'm heading the Shpongle and Carcass shows at the Observatory
but I pretty much listen to anything.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Not taking myself too seriously.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Apparently I look like someone you know. It's the glasses mostly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'll try anything but I prefer spicy. My favorites types of food
are Thai, Persian, Indian, Mexican, Creole, and anything involving
Movies that I really enjoy: Kill Bill 1&2, There Will Be Blood,
Pulp Fiction, Star Wars Trilogy, LOTR, Layer Cake, Snatch, The Dark
Knight, Fight Club, Schindler's List, Jurassic Park, Dr.
Strangelove, American History X, Up, Wall-e, City of God, Battle
Royale, The Wrestler, Little Miss Sunshine, and The Hangover.
I read more nonfiction than anything else.
I love death and black metal but I also am enjoying a lot more
electronic artists. Currently listening to The Glitch Mob, Mimosa,
Bassnectar, & Pretty Lights. You can usually catch me at any of
The Do Lab events throughout the year. I'm always down to go dance
or check out a band that I have never heard of.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Here's a list the things that keep me sane:
Trips into the wilderness
Friends and family
A steady supply of RPG's
Spooning, forking, & then back to spooning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Productively: Planning my next vacation. Figuring out ways to get
grant support for my projects.
Unproductively: the whole meaning of life thing, man's role in the
universe, "Truth," the failings and possible remedies of broken
political structures. Whether humanity can keep up with technology
or if our little planet is doomed.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Spending the day trying to learn something new and heading out with
friends. Saturday is more of my drinking/late night shenanigans.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm the type of person that finds C-SPAN interesting.
