Ok, now that that is out of the way,
So about me:
I am very straight-forward and open. With friends especially, I can be a bit overly candid, but try to be as nice as possible in being so. I believe very strongly that part of our own measure of worth is how much respect we show to others, and honesty is the first sign of that respect.
For the generals: I went to UCSC, and studied econ and physics. Live in the East Bay, work in tech, and love the area. I love to go backpacking, hiking, kayaking, and especially scuba diving .
Besides that, I'm very easy-going, but can get super excited when talking about something I am passionate about. When this happens, the hands start flying around emphasizing every word with full Italian flair, and I strongly recommend taking a step back.
I have that odd combination of being very outgoing and gregarious, but naturally shy and awkward.
I'm afraid of making others uncomfortable, but am disturbingly OK with making an idiot of myself (everyone needs a hobby).
When it says "I'm looking for", the real answer is 'a partner' - with dating as a means to have fun while seeking such.
The OKC staff robot says I am more organized... that is a half-lie: my kitchen or my work, yes; my car or my liberal use of punctuation, a big no.
I'm a huge dork. And the friends who I'm closest with all tend to be life-long nerds, dorks, and geeks. Generally all the best kinds of people.
