Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was born in California and have lived in Switzerland, Germany,
and Canada (long story, sort of). My family is originally Swiss and
I love travelling there to visit relatives.
I like mountainbiking, climbing, gaming, hiking skiing, and
reading, but I wouldn't say my identity is strongly tied to any one
of those activities, rather, I prefer to be able to do a little bit
of each whenever the opportunity presents itself.
Fair warning: I'm a bit of an introvert, but also huge geek and am
alarmingly fond of silly jokes, sarcasm, and various other forms of
I definitely consider myself a feminist, and am very left leaning,
if unconventionally so, in many of my political opinions. I tend to
be conciliatory by nature, but I usually have strong opinions.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Going back to school in order to fill the gaps between my Bachelors
in History/Poli-sci and a masters degree in geology which I now
want. In the meantime I bartend and wait tables.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Giving cheesy compliments, rapier fencing, doing an evil laugh, and
climbing anything from mountains to trees.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm usually talkative and forthright, and almost always smiling.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: No way I can list them all, I think my current favorite is
"The name of the Wind" but it is only one of many.
Movies: All the Star Wars films (yes even the prequels are
enjoyable if not great), The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and The
Show: I enjoy Mythbusters, The West Wing, and Burn Notice, but on
the whole I don't really watch a lot of TV, even Netflix has yet to
change that habit (though I have used it to watch Firefly several
Food: Authentic Mexican food is delicious, and I am more fond of
raw fish than many people I've talked to.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I would go about ruling the world, how I could climb that
building over there, and how I could shorten my trip to work
without getting ticketed for it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...probably at work, which is one of the not so wonderful perks of
my job. On the nights I am not working I am often either gaming
with friends, working on a project, or if I'm feeling particularly
motivated, at Boulders.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My music taste is something I am normally extremely hesitant to
reveal, and I usually expect to be judged for it.
