Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm really much better at answering questions than I am talking
about myself in general terms. I try to think for myself instead of
following the mob... unless the mob happens to have it right.
Mindless rebellion is as pointless as mindless conformity. I enjoy
talking to one person at a time instead of being a social
butterfly. I think I'm a bad dancer but I have a great time when I
try. I'm honest to a fault. I'm both constantly amazed and
disgusted at the good and bad done by people. I look at an
interstate and marvel at the power and effort and coordination that
went into paving and building it, and I'm in awe. Then I think
about the destruction it and the cars on it cause to the land and
the oil-addiction that it feeds and instead see short-sightedness
and waste. I have a hard time reconciling the two. I tend to see
both sides in almost every situation.
I have fallen off of the monogamy bandwagon. I'm currently only
mostly single, as there is an awesome lady in NY who I am rather
fond of, despite the distance involved. (And no, it's not an "open
due to distance" situation.)
I am witty, easy going, and a fencer. (Left over from the olden
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work part-time for an IT company based in New York to pay the
bills so I can still live life instead of chasing money 40 hours a
week and not being able to enjoy it, although this sadly results in
a lot of spare time at odd hours.
I also fence competitively, so practice takes up a lot of my
weekday evenings, and there is occasional travel to national events
across the country. This past season I also did well enough to
travel internationally with the US team and attended events in
Germany, Argentina, Estonia, France, and Italy.
Feel free to ask me about the sport, I enjoy talking about it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being inadvertantly funny and being able to laugh at myself
it. Random games. Falling asleep in class, although I am quite
of practice at this one by now.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall. I wear glasses. I have a manly deep voice. Mostly the
tall part though. As far as personality goes, I'm prone to
tasteless jokes, so that usually comes up pretty quickly too.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends, music, the internet, a goal, sleep, and the support of my
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
People, and how they work. What they like and dislike, and how
everyone relates with one another. What I want to do with myself to
make the most of life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hopefully hanging out with friends, likely doing some sort of
gaming. Occasionally in another city for a fencing tournament,
either as a ref or a competitor.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I went on the 2010 naked bike ride. It was awesome, although the
propaganda about warming up is a bunch of lies.
I also recently engaged in some minor civil disobedience by
stripping down to my boxers at a TSA checkpoint, though they let me
through without incident apart from a slight delay to get a couple
of cops to keep an eye on me.
