My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Update - 1 September 2014:
Profile created. Will start adding information when I get back from the long weekend. Or deleting it. This profile is a huge wall of text on the phone.

Former collegiate track and field athlete and football player turned tech recruiter/HR director just trying to make it through the day. I have nothing going for me except for my charismatic personality, an insatiable thirst for knowledge, a rapier wit, and great friends and family. Sometimes I don't know how I sleep at night.

In a past life I've done stand-up comedy, been in a couple of music videos (one was a hit!), won a regional rocks-paper-scissors tournament, and qualified for a "World's Fastest Typist" contest (171 WPM). If you want to know more about the weird shit I do, it'd behoove you to send me a message.

But let's be real; you read my username and you're here for the jokes. Brace yourself.


I once strung a bunch of watches together to make a belt, but that was a waist of time. I love whiteboards (they're positively remarkable!) and James Bond is loosely based on a series of risky covert operations I performed whilst in middle school. I recently quit my job as a taxidermist because it was pretty boring - all I did was sit around and stuff.

The other day, I saw a demonstration by the homeless people of San Francisco. They were demanding change.

After that, I went to REI and bought an 8-person tent. The cashier said, "Are you going to put that up yourself?". I replied, "No. Probably on a campsite."

Before making this profile, I was having a debate with my buddy over which letter in the alphabet was the best. I won.

Yes, it's true. I've written quite a few jokes in my day. But the one about the kleptomaniac baker really takes the cake.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Work hours:
• Running all staffing operations for a startup in Palo Alto.

About 3.5 years ago I actually worked for OKCupid and hired a good number of people who write the matching algorithms, so I actually do believe in those percentages. If we're above like an 88% match, you should probably send me a message.

Non-work hours:

• Cycling

• Live Music -- seen 175+ shows in the past three years. I travel around the world to see good music.

• My Own Music -- I'm trying to figure out a way to build a makeshift recording studio in my apartment. Have played drums for 16 years, guitar for 12 years, have done vocals, and have a keyboard I play around with. Sometimes I dream about quitting my job and becoming a street performer in Copenhagen. . .

• Exploring -- I love wandering around the Bay Area (anyone know any good hiking spots I haven't tried?) and making spontaneous roadtrips. Ideally you want to do these things too.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
• Boggle/Scrabble/word games (like. . .one of the best in the world good. I'm not kidding).
• Accents / languages
• Remembering every detail from fleeting social interactions
• Being five minutes early to everything

My favorite joke ever is still: I would say I'm the champion of self-deprecation but I'm never the best at anything :-(
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
These are things better saved for a first conversation/date, but all you need to know is:

Reading: Sadly, it's mostly tech news these days.

Watching: I'm terrible at keeping up with movies/TV. I haven't been to the movie theatre in forever and honestly haven't seen any sci-fi/fantasy/superhero movies that permeate everyone else's profile. Wanna binge watch something with me? Suggestions?

I do have a super guilty pleasure watching America's Got Talent. I don't think I've missed an episode in nine seasons. I'm still fun though, right?!?

Listening: I was Passenger #1 for the 70000 Tons of Metal cruise ( That should tell you enough (I don't listen to the really heavy/brutal stuff, don't worry!)

Eating: I'm a great cook. And a great cleaner. I'll make a good housewife someday. I'll eat/cook anything - have a favorite recipe for me?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Wondering why I don't have a"most private thing I'm willing to admit" or "first thing people notice about me" box.
Damnit, OKC!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
• Why no one in Eastern Europe has come up with a dating website called 'Czech Mates'. Or why no one in Korea has developed 'Seoul Mates'.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 24–36
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you've made it this far and still haven't sent me something here's a jumping off point. Message me with the following:

• Your favorite dog .gif. Corgis and Nordic dogs most appreciated.
• Your favorite pun/joke

• If you want to play Scramble With Friends/Boggle/Scrabble
• You realize that "replies very selectively" doesn't mean "replies never". Send something thoughtful. I get back to (good) messages almost immediately.

But also. . .

• I really just like getting to know people and hearing about people's passions. If you send me a three+ paragraph message, I'd be super, super, super happy. Go into detail. Be passionate. Be driven.

• If we've both "liked" each other, that's probably a good start. Send something over. Let's create a great story together.

• Location doesn't matter. I just got myself a new car and I'm kind of desperate to drive it everywhere (I bike to work during the week so give me a reason to get out of Palo Alto/Mountain View!).
