Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Me? I generally think of myself as your standard nerd. I engineer
software, play video games, board games and D&D, watch sci-fi
TV shows, read comic books. Personality-wise, I'm sarcastic,
flippant, I like to think even witty. I'm arrogant some of the
time, insecure others, still trying to find that happy middle
And I'm looking for a partner. Someone who'll play off my banter,
who can call a "that's what she said" before I can react. Someone
to take contra dancing one night, and to board game night the next.
Someone who'll beat me at Dominion or Worms, and be my coop partner
in Portal or Mario. Someone to cuddle up on the couch with and
watch a movie or pro Starcraft match. Someone who'll help me
finally put together a decent costume for ComicCon or PAX. And
someone who'll likewise invite me to join her in her
If some or all of that sounds nice to you, gimme a shout. If not,
best of luck in your own search.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a computer programmer. I spent a few years doing video games in
Bellevue, which was totally awesome, and have recently started
working at Microsoft, which is different but also awesome.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Trying new things. In the recent past I've tried blues dancing and
dodgeball; before that, I dabbled in poi spinning, parkour and
tried to learn to play the guitar. I'm thinking the next few things
on my to-do list might be sketching and glowsticking, but something
else might catch my fancy by then.
Video games. Y'know that "hard mode" option you always ignore?
Yeah, that's how I roll. I live off the delicious victory earned by
learning boss patterns and overcoming frustrating jumping puzzles.
This has earned me funny looks on the bus, but y'know what? When
you've just beaten the guy you've been fighting for a week, the
boss who used to kill you in the first five seconds of the battle,
you can't help but throw up the horns. It's mandatory.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
My D&D group meets Friday nights, which is kinda unfortunate.
But alas, it's hard to find a time when five adults can reliably
meet once a week, and for our particular group, it happened to be
Plus, D&D is awesome. There are way worse ways to spend a
