My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Geeky, outdoorsy engineer with an artistic side, a quick sense of humor, and a major progressive streak. Would have been perfectly comfortable at the crunchiest-granola of liberal arts schools, but that's not how the cards fell (and I'm OK with that).

Sometimes I imagine myself as the consummate "nice guy," then I realize that I have no idea what that means. But I think it's fair to say that I'm patient, giving, and kind. I want to meet someone special who can return the favor.

I drive a quick, well-maintained VW that is a hobby all on its own. It takes me out of the city when I'm feeling restless. Winter is for skiing. Summer is for hiking, biking, kayaking, camping, and driving a little too fast on winding New England back roads. My tent sleeps two...snugly. :)

I'm adventurous in some ways, not in others. I don't break many laws. I don't always push myself outside of my comfort zone. I do ski some pretty steep stuff (but not quite the steepest). I do like getting my car just a little bit sideways in the snow. I've been whitewater rafting and hot air ballooning.

I am liable to slam the brakes in the middle of a busy road and jump out of my car to help a turtle across. I have a pet Russian Tortoise who might outlive me. My female friends say I should talk this up because it shows I'm not afraid of commitment.

I'm deliberate, introspective, and I like to write...hence the length of this thing. Sometimes I consider censoring myself so I don't come off too strong, but it never really works.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a mechanical engineer working in transportation. These days I'm heavily involved with MBTA subway cars. I love my job.

Some weekends I am elbows-deep in the engine compartment of my car. I'm not usually doing anything too impressive. But I find that if I get dirty enough, I almost look like I know what I'm doing.

I try to get outside when I can, but I fail at that goal more often than my profile might suggest. I've been getting out on my mountain bike more lately, which is punishing but fun. I'm looking forward to another good ski season - got new boots to break in!

One of the more worthwhile things I do on my lazy days is drink the best craft beer I can find. This happens a lot.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening. Driving a stick shift (better than average anyway). Riding bikes. Skiing bumps and glades. Sledding. Catching a frisbee. Identifying planes, trains, and automobiles. Photography. Harmonizing with the radio. Catching frogs and turtles. Climbing trees. Whistling. Cuddling.

I will always have a soft spot for really low-brow humor like South Park, Robot Chicken, Jackass, Always Sunny, MXC, etc. But I also get a kick out of sophisticated, weird or ironic humor. Monty Python gets it just right. Monty Python kicks ass. If you don't understand Monty Python, you don't understand how my brain works.

I watched The Last Samurai with friends recently, and I cried for much of the last 30 minutes of the film. There's more to my taste in movies than that, but that should give you an idea.

My music library is a small, slightly weird mix of folky stuff (Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons, Gregory Alan Isakov, Noah and the Whale), indie stuff (Pedro the Lion, The National, Bon Iver, Death Cab), alt-rocky stuff (Band of Horses, Cake, Nada Surf, Coldplay), and post-rock (Caspian, This Will Destroy You). That and a shitload of Frank Zappa...inherited that from my Dad.

I love Mexican food. I make myself a burrito for dinner multiple times per week. Consequently, my mom calls me "Mr. Burrito." I eat a ton of other stuff too, don't worry. Oh, and I put hot sauce on everything. Including, of course, the burritos.

I don't read as much as I used to, but I love Fahrenheit 451, Ender's Game, Bill Bryson's books, and Tintin. My path back to becoming a regular reader will probably involve some good sci-fi novels.

TL;DR - Monty Python, hot banjo plucking, burritos, space ships.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Public radio
Hot sauce
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness." - John Kenneth Galbraith
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
One Friday I took a nap after work, rode my bike over to a climbing gym with a couple friends, then went to a jazz club for music and beers. I thought this was a pretty good Friday night, though admittedly a bit more exciting than my "typical" one.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
