Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My philosophy for living is "Make the world suck less." Everything
else is just gravy.
I'm a serious but positive person, and I hate when people mistake
being cynical for being smart.
I almost never stop thinking about the world around me, and I'm
ready to have a conversation about anything.
I'm a Long Island native living in Rochester, and people from both
places have told me I'm not what they would expect from either.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm making my living as a mechanic while figuring out what to do
next. I have an almost-finished degree in chemistry that's begging
for completion, but it's a tug of war between that, my job,
creative work, and public service. There's just so much to
I try to help people wherever I can. Most of the time, it's worth
it. Sometimes it can get pretty Goddamned scary.
I have a burning itch to know and to learn things that keeps me
pretty busy. Over the last couple of months, I've learned the
basics of home wiring, how to stain and finish wood, and how to
deep fry a turkey.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Problem solving and inventiveness. My home is filled with
contraptions built under the guiding principle of "If it works, who
cares if it's weird?"

You'll have to tell me.
At the risk of appearing *too* self-promotional, other people have
said things like this about me once they've gotten to know me
"This gentleman's profile is definitely indicative of the type of
stimulating conversation you'll get from him. I could think of far
worse fates than having a drink or two with him."
"His insights into the human condition will wow you again and
again. A man wise beyond his years!"
"I'm glad we went out, and I'm glad he's my friend."

I love synthetic sound.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Boy, this is tough. I really think that my entire world could burn
down around me and I would find a way to persist (not that I'm
eager to test that hypothesis). Let's see if I can come up with
1 - Change. When my world changes, I thrive. New circumstances are
a good opportunity for personal growth, and I adapt really easily.
I'm the kind of person you want to have around in a crisis, or when
things get weird. On the other hand, long, drawn-out routine will
usually turn me into a brain-dead slug.
2 - Art. Imagine that every movie, book, TV series, picture, song,
sculpture, and live performance suddenly disappeared from the
world, and we couldn't produce any more. It's scary to even think

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Improving myself, improving the world, how to use my time
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Exercising, studying, writing, in the kitchen trying out a new
recipe, or just relaxing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

My totem animal is a man in an Itchy the Mouse costume, stink bomb
smoke billowing from the mouth, crying "I just want to entertain!"
