My name is Riley, and I recently graduated with a M.S. in
Industrial Engineering from The Ohio State University. I am just
now moving back to Columbus after spending a year in Cincinnati
working with Deloitte Consulting. I enjoy rock climbing and
racquetball. I love reading books, and have chewed through quite a
library in my life. I'm a really happy person and I love making
What I’m doing with my life
I have a Bachelor's in Aeronautical Engineering and a Master's in
Operations Research. I have just moved back to Columbus after
spending a year in Cincinnati. Good to be back, but life is a lot
different after college! My job has me traveling around a lot, so I
get to see new places all the time, which is great. I think they
are sending me to Japan for a few weeks next time. Woo!
My dream would be to start my own operations consultation
My dream dream (the one I know will never happen) would be to make
a company of just smart people who invent things. Sometimes ideas
just come to me and I just think "...I could totally make a living
thinking up cool things"
I’m really good at
I have been a teacher the past couple years to finance grad school
and have a few teaching awards under my belt, so I guess you could
say I'm good at getting through to people.
I'm also good at making people laugh. Once I get to know you I can
anticipate what to say to just make you bust out laughing. My
friends keep me around to make them happy. I'm so used.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and personality. I am always upbeat. Not in the annoying
or bubbly sort of upbeat, but rather its hard to get me down. I
don't think I've ever shouted at someone (except in jest or extreme
sarcasm) in my whole life. I don't see the reason for negative
feelings, so I usually work through them very quickly. This all
leads to smiling a lot, and so people generally mention that I have
a nice smile and an infectious laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
If I was to list my favorite book it would probably change from day
to day. I have read too many books and so it is hard to have an
overall favorite. I really enjoy Star Wars, Dresden Files, anything
by Brent Weeks and Trudi Canavan.
Recently I saw the Frozen movie. It was a real kickback to the
Disney I used to know and love as a child. Those songs are
currently stuck in my head and coming up on my Pandora playlist
more than any straight male would normally admit. I also like all
of these new Comic movies that are coming out. Not that I've ever
read a comic, but finally the era of the nerds is here!
I like pop hits that the radio plays, and my favorite band is Hot
Chelle Rae. I will listen to everything that is not screaming/too
heavy on guitar and drums, or country.
Favorite shows Misfits, Archer, Game of Thrones, House of Cards,
Breaking Bad. I like Top Gear even though I don't understand
anything about car culture.
My favorite food would probably be Stuffed Green Peppers. A little
specific, but that's my favorite dish. Nobody stuffs a pepper like
my mammy can. MMmm mm good!
Favorite genre of food would probably just be americanized asian
The six things I could never do without
1. A book (I love reading)
2. Cellphone (I'm not always using it but I can't imagine not
3. Access to the internet (Reddit and Netflix)
4. Friends (I'm a social butterfly, and I need some human
5. Humor (If I'm not making you laugh then you're broken)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the Universe, and Everything.
I spend a lot of time thinking about where my life is going. Trying
to pop out a few technical degrees, get a cool high paying job,
climb the career ladder, get married, have kids, spoil the crap out
of my kids, retire to another country while remotely spoiling my
grandkids, die peacefully. What a life that would be, and right now
none of it seems to be impractical or impossible.
On a typical Friday night I am
With my friends. I enjoy a good movie night, or just sitting around
laughing about random things until you realize it's 3AM.
You should message me if
Message me if I interest you. I don't really want to hook up, I'm
here for friends->dating->relationship
Also, if you made it this far you have to realize how huge of a
nerd I am, if that's not what your looking for then you are on the
