Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hiya! Currently living in the suburban sprawl, soon moving to
Chicago and keeping a weather eye open to what kinds of friendly
faces I can look forward too. I work in technology for an
non-profit health care facility during the day and indulge in my
own stuff the rest of the time (and sometimes at work). I like to
hang with my friends and such. Sometimes we're at a favorite
restaurant, sometimes seeing a movie but always savoring the
company. Seriously, people matter to me and I'd rather be in
rapturous company than "doing something." If you like to hang out
and talk incessantly about the things that you love, we'll get
along... and maybe more.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I sort of stumbled into IT after an education in the arts which I'm
constantly trying to get back into while also expanding my
technology horizons "just in case."
Otherwise, in my real life, I like a vast range of stuff. Things,
however, that I REALLY like fall under the following: running &
bicycling regularly (preferably under the warmth of the sun),
laying around with fantastic tunes in the background, Chicago
outdoor concerts, midnight movies at the Music Box, late-night
talks, walks along Lake Michigan, the dinosaurs at the Field and,
most importantly, discovering something awesome that I didn't know
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh. Conversation. Offering opinions on...
everything. Yeah, that may just be my specialty.
The first things people usually notice about me

No matter where I am or what I'm doing I'm regularly told (by total
strangers) that I bare a striking resemblance to Conan O'Brien in
both appearance and personality/demeanor (minus the height). So,
basically, I guess that means I walk around talking like a
late-night comedian 24/7.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Everything, seriously. Films range from silent comedies (Chaplin,
Keaton), classical Hollywood genres (John Ford Westerns, Gene Kelly
Musicals), thrillers (Hitchcock, Brian DePalma), Woody Allen (the
dramas as well as the comedies) and foreign masterpieces (Bergman,
Truffaut, Fellini). I also like a lot of schlock though; new as
well as vintage. Basically, anything that isn't your average
blandness that pervades the marketplace today.
The same goes for music. I have pretty eclectic tastes. Arcade
Fire, Fleet-foxes, Beach House and Bon Iver (and yes, I'm saying it
the french way). If it's getting good reviews on Pitchfork, I'm
probably digging it. I like the 90's alternative that I grew up
with (Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins) as well as the stuff
that my aunt grew up with (Pixies, Dinosaur Jr). I really dig older
rock; Beach Boys surfer harmonies with the Beatles, Mo-town and
70's Bowie and lots of past and current rap. If you follow my
Spotify closely enough you'll also find a lot of classical and film
scores in there too though. Really, unless you come to me wanting
to listen to Nickel-back, we'll probably have a good time sharing
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Ideas... ones I would like to pursue (creative or otherwise).
Bigger issues; challenges faced in the public domains. Political,
economic crises. There's a lot of trouble facing us and my
generation is going to shoulder most of the burden. Getting people
to really care about this stuff is hard and taxing and I don't know
how to do it, only that it has to be done. Apathy sucks.
But that all sounds pretty pretentious, I know. So, I try to have a
pretty good time, most of the time. I usually accomplish that, at
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no standard Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I have a GREAT ice-breaker story about myself that's very humbling
but you don't get that one very easily. I save that for
face-to-face encounters only. Come on, you know you're intrigued.

So, if I told you I was throwing a Quentin Tarantino-character
Halloween party and if you instantly knew the character you'd come
as, we'd probably have a good time.
Nah, seriously... if you're cool, we'll probably be cool and I
probably want to meet you.
