Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
-My name is Matt. I am originally from Colorado but grew up in the
Madison area, and have lived in a few other places before moving
back downtown recently.
-I dig music, and graduated from MMI with a degree in Recording and
Music Technology. Thus far it has mainly led to small independent
projects of mine, but I love it nonetheless. Writing is also
passion of mine, although much more aimless than music.
-I crave new experiences and like to think that I have a strong
spirit of adventure. I also like to think that the universe is
conspiring in my favor every now and then.
-I wouldn't refer to myself as a fitness aficionado by any means,
but I do like to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. It is
something that took some growing-into for me, but I have found it
to be very rewarding and satisfying.
-On The Road by Kerouac is my Bible.
-I mentioned music, which I seem to have dedicated my life to
without necessarily realizing it (but I wouldn't change it for the
world). I also dig parentheses.
-INFP. I'm sort of the laid back introverted type, but that doesn't
mean that I don't enjoy meeting new people :)

Help your potential matches find common interests.
I value authenticity and raw passion above all when it comes to
music. I suppose I tend to gravitate towards the "alt-rock" side of
things, but as long as those two qualities are present, genre means
nothing to me. A few of my favorite artists are Neil Young,
Gaslight Anthem, The Replacements, The Clash, David Bowie, The
Stooges, Social Distortion, Ramones, The Sonics, Bass Drum of
Death, Uncle Tupelo, Meat Puppets, Dinosaur Jr, anything Jack White
touches...I'll refrain from geeking out any further, but I could
totally ramble on about music forever (Led Zeppelin pun

Books: On The Road and Into the Wild are definitely my favorites,
along with The Stand by Stephen King. I also have a somewhat odd
obsession with Moby-Dick and will always love all of SE Hinton's
books. Recently read House of Leaves and Night Film; both of which
are going to stick with me for quite a while.
Food: Yes please.
