Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm laid back regarding most things, but really intense when it
comes to work. I've learned that I have a strong nerdy side (pretty
sure that's part of the territory when working in education) but
normally that only comes out when I'm around people who share that
sentiment. At this point I'm equally comfortable hanging out in
shorts by a grill, trying to figure out current issues and politics
with friends at a pub or presenting issues to a bunch of PhDs in
our faculty meetings.
I'm curious, open, opinionated, random, goofy, serious, passionate,
casual and supportive as the need arises. But, then again, isn't
everyone? The nuances that make each of us special aren't the most
easily expressed in little text boxes- so we'll have to grab a cup
of coffee and get to know each other for you to find out
***Last thing. I'm one of (what seems like) the small handful of
people around here who votes democratic and is not a fan of most
organized religion. I am somewhat spiritual (and fully aware of how
cliche that sounds) and my political/religious views reflect my
feeling that we are all here to make the world a better place for
those we share it with in any way we can. Because of this I'm very
much against homophobia, racism, or systems that ostracize others
for things they cannot control and I'm looking for people who share
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for the university in a capacity where I can see myself
making a difference in the lives of students and parents everyday.
I love that and am a big believer in doing what you love because if
you're not... what's the point?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Oddly enough, it's my voice. I've never really thought it was that
different but a lot of people seem to think that it's very calming

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Love movies... have way too many of them in fact. Foreign and
independent films intrigue me but I'm also a sucker for superhero
movies, horror movies or campy sci-fi.
Books are all over the place. I read lots of different types of
things, though lately I've been going for lighter fare since things
are often very "real" at work.
Music is also all over the board... I mostly have NPR on while
driving so I hear a lot of classical, but love rock, jazz, some
folk and R&B when in the mood for it.
Any good food is a winner for me- used to work at a culinary school
so if it's good I'll try it, even if it's a bit unconventional.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
*my close friends
*career/something to keep me from getting bored
*internet since it's pretty much how I keep track of what happens
around the rest of the world
everything else is pretty negotiable... I'm not really sold on
accumulating "things" and while I have some nice things I
appreciate there is very little that I couldn't give up if I
absolutely had to.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
the coming zombie apocalypse and pie. mmmm... pie.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're interested in meeting someone new, either for friends or for
potentially something more. I'd like to find someone to connect
with but either way, it's cool just getting to know interesting
people since almost anyone can teach you something new.
