Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a Tennessee transplant and have lived in the Bay Area for about
three years. I work as a jack-of-all-trades data analyst for a
large university. For the most part I enjoy what I do and like the
free reign they give me to do my job.
I am a bit of a weekend warrior. I've been rock climbing
for around 11 years,
for two seasons, and golfing
for about 8 months. Any excuse
to wander about aimlessly in the sun is fine by me. My idea of
relaxing during the weekends is to take a trip somewhere, hope I
don't get too banged up, and spend the following day recovering
around the house and out and about locally. I'm pretty high energy,
but also can also be a bit a homebody (especially when I'm too sore
to do much else!).
I'm a bit introverted so I come off as shy until I get to know you,
but I can be pretty chatty once I'm comfortable.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
That's the $50,000 question, isn't it? Before, it was get my
bachelors degree, then get my masters degree, then find a job and
start a career. Great, done, now what?
At the moment, I'm doing the career thing and spending as much of
my free time outside and detoxing from staring at a computer screen
all day for work.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Figuring things out in my own bumbling way, sometimes to my
detriment. I'd rather try to do something, see if it worked and
learn something if it didn't. Google is my friend! Concrete
example; with just a touch of a hangover, I replaced the broken
pull cord on my lawn mower. With a bit of Google-fu and some
swearing, I fixed it!

Besides the stereotypical, "Hey, you're tall!", folks tend to
notice my glasses. I guess they give me flair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: My main diet is Sci-Fi and historical
fiction. Alastair Reynolds, Neal Stephenson, Poul Anderson, Ken
Follet, Edward Rutherford, and George Stewart. I typically browse
used book stores until I've found two or three books that catch my

often. I love Pixar films, sci-fi, and psychological

Men, South Park, Louis C.K.

fond of rap or twangy country. Parov Stelar, Royksopp, Caravan
Palace, Darrel Scott, and the Chieftans are a few that come to

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What are my plans for the weekend? Climbing, golf, snowboarding,
clean the house, all of the above? Why does that person do that
thing? I bet it's because of this reason. Do I do that? Is it
because of this other reason? Hmmm...maybe because...ooh, hey a
squirrel! Wait, uh, oh. Damn ADD.

I have a bad habit of leaving half full coffee mugs strewn about my
house. Currently there is one on my toilet, bathroom sink, and on
my coffee table. I'm good at all other dishes, etc. and am the only
"housekeeper" among my roommates but there is something about
