Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a Chicago born escaping the Midwest. I can find the humor in
just about anything, especially at myself. I have an equal
appreciation for both technology and physical activity, so I'm just
as prone to be captivated in front of a computer for hours as I am
to be intentionally getting lost on an all day bike ride.
I have a deep-seated love of things involving water,
sailing and scuba diving, but enjoy almost all outdoor activities.
If I get into a conversation I'm interested in, I can become
somewhat animated (and occasionally loud and profane), but
otherwise I am usually pretty stoic. It's usually easier to listen
than it is to talk.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I develop standardized state tests; meaning I stare at a computer
screen with contempt in silent (and sometimes, not so silent) rage
much more than I like.
I also tutor math and science (mainly physics). Because that's not
a conflict of interest, right?
For some reason, the idea of starting a packing/moving company
sounds really good.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Not really good at any one thing but, I do seem to have an above
average skills at most things. Probably not the best at any
particular situation, but still useful. I tend to be pretty skilled
with my hands (despite, according to some people, them being
Things that I'm relatively good at:
Engaging in completely ridiculous conversations with complete
sincerity (zombie survival, morality of killing robots that look
like humans, etc.)
The first things people usually notice about me

Food: I like all foods; although the dish gets extra points if it
has some meat in it. BBQ and sushi rarely disappoint (not together,
of course). Macaroni and cheese has been a comfort food since I was
a child, a well prepared french toast breakfast (that includes
bacon, eggs, and hash-browns) is always appreciated, and I find I
can never say no to a lox bagel.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Something new to learn
A project to work on
Something to record/work out my thoughts
A bike (bicycle, not motorcycle)
A good knife (byproduct of sailing; I promise, I am not a serial
Of course, there are some people in my life that I wouldn't want to
do without, but I don't consider people THINGS. If you do, you are
a terrible, terrible person.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The current and future state of energy systems and nuclear weapon
industries and their global ramifications
What direction my life is heading, my next course of action
My next personal project (current front-runner: building a
grandfather clock that, instead of chiming on the hour, asks an
Philosophical and metaphysical questions
How to apologize to all my teacher friends for being the monster
that is standardized testing
What to have for dinner
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Coming off of a happy hour. After that, who knows?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't spell to save my life; spell check has allowed me to pass
for human all these years.
