Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Proud geek. I'm grad studenting in computer science at Cal State
East Bay. Stay at home fathersizing at home. And new wordifying
whenever I get the chance. I <3 the internet and use it to sneak
in checks on my favorite blogs and the multitude of friends I've
collected over the years. <:Insert witty story here:>. Ha ha,
that was great.
Watch out though, I worship the God-that-I-don't-believe-in of
Hilarity. If something funny is dying to be said, I will say it,
often at extraordinary costs to myself.
I am capricious, anarchic, and callipygian
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
being pretty happy about it at the moment. Economics is where my
baccalaureate work went and I finished that at SDSU a while ago.
Then I spent a few years doing the finance thing at a small bank.
Now days I'm spending a lot of time at home with my boy and
watching him grow up right in front of my eyes. I'm so lucky that I
get to do that, and I really think that more guys should jump at
the chance to do it. When I'm not doing that I'm with my second
love: computer science. Addendum: I got work!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Not doing stuff that I'm interested in doing. I've put off on
learning shorthand for about 6 years now(I've picked up a few forms
and use them regularly when taking notes. It's way disappointing to
be in the middle of a midterm and realize that you have to write
out certain words the long way). I would like to start tinkering
with making neat stuff, like a north belt
(I purchased a kit to build
a similar device and recently cut my chops on soldering to assemble
it. Way fun.). I once studied speed reading, but have managed not
to keep up on practice (update: I'm just reading more now and it
helps). Always thought it would be awesome to keep a journal, but
specifically a recounting of everything I remember from dreams the
night before. Part of keeping myself motivated is surrounding
myself with other people interested in doing the same.
Really though, I'm pretty good at keeping a conversation going. And
not half bad at having a good time. The secret to life is wringing
the sponge of opportunity.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The way I look. Or in your case, the way I write.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I've recently really enjoyed Karl Schroeder's Virga series
of sci-fi. I'm finally really starting to read, and there's so much
catching up to do.
Movies: The Red Violin, Secretary, Fight Club, Nightmare Before
Christmas, Battle Royal, Bonfire of the Vanities, Super
Music: Alternative, Punk, Metal, Techno, Classical, Jazz, although
I find my Pandora station at work is permanently stuck between my
chiptune and dub-step channels.
Food: Tapas, BBQ, various Asian cuisine, and other stuff too!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Food, water, shelter... A jedi seeks not these
things, but I do.
- Without which I can actually feel myself
the fun is exploring and widening the breadth of experience and
- Nothing like a healthy circle of friends to
augment your perception of the world and generally make life what
it can be.
It makes me sane to have a computer to program on and a TV to Wii
- Tubes are my lifeline to the rest of the world while
I'm spending so much time at home studying and fathering.
::secretly, I could probably get along without any of the above.
Well, maybe not air and food. Family is pretty important as well.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Things I want. Like north-belts, sexier blindfolds
with flat screens on the
inside of them. What I'd do if ridiculous amounts of money
suddenly became mine.
That's one of my favorite games, I'd seriously go about making a
airship, directly out of the early Final Fantasy
series. Unleash a
series of non-profit creations for my own entertainment, like a
mash-up of Google
with the Wikipedia Wikispecies
project, or dictionary
of life so anyone could type in their address and get a list of
native species for their gardens and such.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Not really a typical Friday night anymore. I may be out with
friends or in with a book. Maybe some homework, or getting to bed
early for a bike ride in the morning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to make full lunches of Costco
samples. I went so often that
teams of us developed tactics for more fulfilling eating. I brought
the ladies working there Mother's Day cards. And, when I go back
down to San Diego to visit my old college friends I can't not stop
by to say hello to the women that are still working there.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are interested in any of the projects I mentioned that I'm not
following through on in the "I'm really good at" section. Things
are easier to tackle with a partner, like going to the gym.
Contact me if you would like to spend time together enjoying what's
out there. I also am terrible at dancing as I am (three strikes)
tall, white, and straight, but if you would like to take me out to
teach me I would like that. Be warned I will embarrass you, I say
terrible for a reason.
