Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey all. My name is Todd. I don't really know what to put in a self
summary of myself, so this is probably going to be pretty
I graduated with a degree in electrical engineering from the
University of Florida. I've been in Gainesville for a really long
time, but it's a nice city, so I don't mind. And I'll probably be
here a few more years anyway, so I'd better like it!
I'm currently seeing someone (no worries she knows I'm on here), so
I'm not looking for a new relationship, just new friends since all
of mine graduated and left!
I'm a Gator football fan! I wasn't into being a fan until I came to
college, but now I'm all there! Go team!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm back in school for my masters in EE. I may pursue the PhD here
or work a few years then go back for it, but ideally I'd like to
have it. My goal is to work for NASA at Glenn in Ohio.
I got a research position in the device electronics field for the
moment, but I'm constantly having to justify my position in order
to keep funding. I'm currently working on GaN HEMTs and trying to
characterize certain properties about them for high power and
possibly space applications. I warn you, don't ask me about it
unless you want a super long answer! :P
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at shaving my head. Haven't paid for a haircut in 5
years! I just let it grow out until it gets annoying, then shave
it! (Hence the variation of length in my pictures)
I'm also really good at wasting a lot of time doing random "photo
shoots"! So far, I've done a Grease shoot, an Indiana Jones shoot,
a mobster shoot, a Star Wars Rebel Trooper shoot, and a Rocky
Horror shoot. Recently, I also made the Calvin faces picture in my
profile. A few years ago, a couple friends and I made a parody
music video of Simple Plan's "Untitled"! Youtube keeps taking it
down and putting it back up (copyrights and all that), but if it's
up, here's the linky
!. I'm not saying I'm any good at these
shoots, but I am good at wasting time doing them :P
Trying to write this essay without sounding cocky is difficult...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
You would be hard-pressed to find a type of music that I do not
like. However, if I were given the option, I'd almost always choose
Classic Rock. Also, I'm a closet car singer. Whenever I have to get
on the highway, I show up hoarse!
As far as movies go, I prefer action or science fiction, although
anything would really go. A few favorites would be "The Silence of
the Lambs", "Fight Club", the new Batmans, the classic "Star Wars",
"Fracture", "The Matrix", etc. Also, comedies are good!
I love the Ender's Game series and the spin-off Ender's Shadow
series. Also, the Hannibal series and anything written by Vonnegut!
I also enjoy philosophy and religious books (like Plato's
Republic). There are probably a lot of books I'm leaving off the
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This is a hard one:
1. Technology (entertainment and my future career)
3. Food (not for sustenance, I just love food!)
4. Sports (I'm not a competitive person, but I love a friendly game
5. My computer (sufficiently different from technology in my
6. The outdoors (I love hiking, National Parks, etc.!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think a lot. Mostly about life in general (more like how the
universe works than about my life).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Ugh, I don't know. Anything really. Not really a fan of clubs,
though a recent wedding sort of changed my mind about this.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Yeah... no. Just message me if you want to get to know me
One fun fact:
I shave with a straight razor and I feel like a badass every time I
do (despite that I cut the crap out of my face). Anything I can do
to be like Sweeny Todd! Well, besides killing people and making
pies out of them...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
No ifs, just do it. Come on, everybody's doing it. [more peer
You should also message me if you want to be running buddies! I'm
looking to get back into that.
Who are you looking for?
