Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Geeky but adventurous? Philosophical but whimsical? Adjective but
I love learning new things, trying new things and doing new things.
I don't really care about being cool, so hipsters beware!
I'm a music geek: I own too many CDs. I love Pink Floyd. And
Stravinsky. And Prince. And other stuff, too.
I'm a sceptic. I dig Joseph Campbell.
I once wore sunglasses, rattled a Coke can and shouted "Money for
the blind" while in my wheelchair when I was about ten. I was in a
shopping centre parking lot. Some would argue that I haven't grown
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently doing my PhD in computer science, focusing on
computational biology and other geeky but interesting stuff. I'll
only bore you with the details if you ask. :)
My goal for 2013 is to get some fiction published. (This is on top
of my already busy schedule, of course.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Bizarre conversations, creative pursuits, solving puzzles,
remembering useless trivia, making a fool of myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
1. My disability, obviously (Muscular Dystrophy)
2. My charming wit and stunning good looks
3. My humility
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I love, love, love Lewis Carroll’s Alice
books and Dune by Frank Herbert; I’m currently reading the
excellent A Fire Upon the Deep by Vernor Vinge. In my misspent
youth I was a big fan of Stephen King, but I rarely read his stuff
Non-fiction favourites include things like Godel, Escher, Bach by
Douglas Hofstadter and The Hero with a Thousand Faces by Joseph
Movies: Anything that's quirky without being too
pretentious. The Big Lebowski, Brazil and Star Wars are all films
I've seen countless times.
Music: I'm a rock kind of guy, mainly listening to
progressive rock and New Wave. Favourite bands include Yes, Pink
Floyd and The Cars.
TV: At the moment, my favourite shows are The
Colbert Report, Breaking Bad, Futurama and Justified. My all-time
favourite series, however, has to be Carl Sagan’s Cosmos.
Foods: the odd bit of Italian, Indian, Mexican,
Thai or Russian usually suits me well.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. family: really, family is important to me, despite minor
2. friends: it goes without saying
3. music: I'm pretty much guaranteed to be listening to music at
4. computer: I work in computer science, so...
5. books: anything geeky will do
6. movies: high-brow, low-brow, whatever.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Besides my study, I spend a lot of time thinking about life: its
challenges, its rewards and how people often choose to hide from it
instead of actively pursuing it.
I also think about the quickest path to becoming a supervillain.
Alas, finding private funding for a doomsday device is not as easy
as one would hope.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing by watching a movie or at a concert somewhere. Or talking
someone's ear off.
Or out on a killing spree.
Actually, that last part is a joke. I do my killing on Thursdays
(but only after I do my laundry, of course).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm actually a pretty normal person.
