Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My friends would describe me as a deep thinker.. my enemies, a
sarcastic cynic. I'm most at home in conversation when I'm playing
Devil's advocate. I firmly believe that the person I am is largely
defined by the interactions I have with others. Different people
bring out different sides of my personality, and I take my cues
from my partner.
I'm looking for the Columbia to my Eddie.
When I grow up, I want to be Anthony Bourdain.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved to Austin in 2011 for a job offer. I knew nothing of Texas,
but now I can't imagine living any other place in this whole, Red
state. I quickly tired of 6th street (unless it's with a group and
some vague purpose). My work happens in East Austin, but my life
happens in South Austin. Find me on Tuesday nights sipping a pint
at Bakerstreet, or catching a movie at the Alamo on Slaughter. For
my first year, I was just a drudge. I worked, then I went home.
I've since made some friends and have tried to embrace the city and
it's quirky charm.
I completed a masters degree in 2008, and I'm not working in my
field. This bothered me for a long time, but I've recently started
to enjoy my government job. I've trained several people, and my
superiors have started talking about me moving up. There is a
distinct possibility that I'll have a career on my hands at some
point, yikes! Then again, I AM over 30, so it seems almost par for
I've tried the friends with benefits thing, and I've been perplexed
by the polyamory thing(s). I think I'm at a point where I'm
interested in dating someone I'm compatible with and who I
genuinely like. It may sounds obvious, but it took me too long to
realize this simple fact. If we liked each other, my ideal
situation would be an exclusive, monogamous relationship. I'm ready
to consider settling down, if we achieved some level of stability.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
cooking, leather-working, painting, trying to be eco-friendly,
utilizing my green opposable thumbs in my patio garden.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

An internet connection
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

A favorite movie quote: Once upon a time there was a crooked tree
and a straight tree. And they grew next to each other. And every
day the straight tree would look at the crooked tree and he would
say, "You're crooked. You've always been crooked and you'll
continue to be crooked. But look at me! Look at me!" said the
straight tree. He said, "I'm tall and I'm straight." And then one
day the lumberjacks came into the forest and looked around, and the
manager in charge said, "Cut all the straight trees." And that
crooked tree is still there to this day, growing strong and growing
strange. -"Wristcutters: A Love Story"
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Typical Friday nights do not exist for me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmm..my guilty pleasures include shows about "Ancient Aliens" and
conspiracy theories. I don't buy into most of it, but it's like
junk-food tv for an anthropology nerd.
