Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am currently dating aminoup
, who is quite incredible. However,
I'm still looking for cool folks to hang out with and I'm always
down to chat with interesting people on the internet.
Someone on the internet wrote a song about my OkCupid profile.
I'm a foodie, addicted to books and obscure music, an ex-scuba
diver (not by choice), and really enjoy the fact that I can
truthfully say the sentence "Before I moved to Costa Rica, when I
was dealing cards at the underground burlesque joint." I'm still
trying to figure out how to fit Japan in there somewhere.
I enjoy language, wordplay, math, logic, absurdity, beer, and
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Travelling and clicking buttons on the internet. It's pretty
fantastic. High on the list to visit: Uruguay, Thailand, Mongolia.
Planning a trip on the trans-Siberian railroad from Vladivostok to
somewhere in Europe.
Istanbul was amazing. You should go. Portugal might have been more
amazing than Istanbul.
Right at this instant I'm using Japan as a base from which to work
and visit many of the other Asian countries, because Asia is nifty.
Also waiting for the US to legalize my job again. This is out of
date, as I've now seen most of Asia and am sick of it. Need to move
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
clicking buttons on the internet in return for money and attempting
to share really obscure music with all my friends. Nesting
parentheses. Sharing underappreciated finds in the world of books,
music, and adventures.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I might be the tallest person in Nagoya. If there's someone here
who's taller than I am, I haven't seen them yet. People routinely
stare at me and then say something about basketball players. Small
children flee in terror.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Authors -- I read a LOT. A lot. Many of my attitudes and opinions
on life are strongly influenced by the books of Robert Heinlein
, and John D. MacDonald
. If you like
one of these authors and haven't discovered one of the other two,
man, do yourself a favor and check them out. I also like
interesting books about the real world, including Nassim Taleb
's Black Swan,
's Collapse, and Freakonomics.
Shows -- Doctor
(anything Steven Moffat consistently blows my mind), Top Gear
, Daily Show
, Real Time
, No Reservations
, A Cook's Tour
, Planet Earth
, Blue Planet
. I like shows about
people traveling the world and eating crazy tasty things.
Underground hiphop (Viro the Virus
, Reef the Lost Cauze
, Richie Cunning
, Society of
Japanese jazz/hiphop fusion (Nujabes
, DJ Okawari
, Koerner, Ray, and
, "Spider" John

(Fordlandia is a fantastic album))
Food -- Indian
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Kindle, laptop, and a backpack. I travel light -- as long as I've
got books and music I'm happy.
Shockingly enough, I never liked coffee until I moved to Costa
Rica. Now I'm addicted.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My plan for the next few years and how the decisions I make now
impact the rest of my life. Where I want to live eventually.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Clicking buttons on the internet or bemoaning the lack of a social
scene in rural Japan.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes while wearing my watch I bring my left arm up near my ear
so that I can hear the mechanical ticking. It's very soothing.

you enjoy things such as going out and getting some beers, going on
interesting adventures in and around the Nagoya area, or if you're
just looking to chill! I'm mostly looking to meet new people in
Nagoya -- I've been in a relatively isolated part of Costa Rica for
a few years and one of the things I miss the most is the company of
people who speak English as a primary language!
You have recommendations about travelling - Countries, places in
countries, anything like that. The world's neat.
