I'm a 31 year old mechanical/electrical/software engineer,
definitely a bit of a geek, but with a pretty wide range of
interests. I'm looking for friends, someone to date, or something
more serious with the right person. I'd like to find someone I can
hang out with, who maybe shares some of my interests (cars,
motorcycles, weird uncategorizable usually funny books and other
media of all kinds...). I have a sometimes totally random sense of
humor, and can find something amusing or interesting in the oddest
places. I guess that makes me easily amused--I like to think it's
in a good way though.
What I’m doing with my life
Moved to Pasadena a few years ago from the East Coast...I
definitely like it here! I'm working on alternative fuel vehicles,
mostly doing programming these days. Trying to stay sane, and get
to know more people out here.
I’m really good at
Anything mechanical or electrical, finding connections between
things and humor in unusual places.
Not saying the right thing at the right time. (If I come off as
abrasive, I probably didn't mean to.) If you know Buffy the Vampire
Slayer, Anya's lines sometimes remind me of myself, except for the
part about being a demon.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually that I'm really smart with anything technical...sometimes
intimidatingly so, I try to avoid that but it does happen
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books that come to mind at the moment: Terry Pratchett
series, pretty much anything by Christopher Moore
or Neil Stephenson
, police/detective novels, and sometimes
literary junk food that I won't go into here :)
Movies, semi-randomly sampled: V for Vendetta
, Brain Candy
Cannibal! The Musical
, the Grindhouse
, Reefer Madness

TV: Doctor Who

, Big Bang
, Venture Bros.
, Social Distortion
, Alan Parsons
, Daft Punk
, Def Leppard

Food: Indian, the rest of Asia, Mexican...really a lot of stuff.
The six things I could never do without
Something interesting to work on.
Friends to hang out with and talk to.
Someplace to get away to every now and then.
A sense of humor; I don't think I could function taking life
Still trying to think of the other two...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How things and people work...I'm not making much progress on the
On a typical Friday night I am
At home watching a movie/reading a book/online, or out with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You should probably ask me that...it's private, and it varies from
person to person, so I'm not going to put it here :P
You should message me if
I seem like the sort of person you're looking for, or if there's
something in my profile that piques your curiosity. Pretty much the
usual reasons for emailing people.
