Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My self-summary. How does one summarize themselves?
Well we can start with prevalent matters. I'm a home owner, a
recently enrolled again student, an IT professional, a musician, a
video game enthusiast; I am many things, as we all are!
For those muts like me, I am of Italian, Irish and Welsh descent!
The first name may give away which part is most prevalent in how I
classify myself (Tony) :)
If you're into Myers-Briggs (as I am) I am an INTP personality
type. Accurate on most accounts, I am without a doubt a thinker. I
consider it my greatest strength and weakness. We'll talk about
that later though.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Workin for the man every night and day!
I work in IT for Winchester Ammo. Not my favorite place to work but
the company takes care of its employees. They are good about that,
despite making something inherently destructive (I may have some
opinions on the subject but I accept most people's views on most
issues). We can talk about that when we meet. Hopefully I won't
offend you with what I say, though I find myself falling in a
pretty moderate area for most issues of debate.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Conversing with people. I'll woo you before you know it! But
seriously, I have a very analytical mind and I'm a people pleaser.
I like people being happy so I try to achieve providing some means
of happiness to those I care about. So being analytical, I'm a
natural problem solver. I also think I have a good ear for music (I
used to play 8 instruments!)
Ok, I should stop there before I start sounding full of myself,
lol. Being a person inside his own head, I know my strengths and
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes and my buzzed/balding head. One of the two! Possibly
I got my dad's hairline and though I miss the option of having
hair, I like my buzzed head. It is SUPER easy to maintain and the
summer heat is a little less severe.
After that, I think people say I am well spoken. I was raised the
grandson of a writer, and he did not allow me to make errors when
speaking. I am immensely grateful for this as it continues to serve
me well to this day.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I don't read much. Mostly news articles on the latest in
climate change and technology. I think this will be changing soon,
as I am finding myself more interested in reading and the written
word (blame my comms/lit Prof for that)
Movies: Far too many to list, but the all time favorite is Tim
Burton's A Nightmare Before Christmas. I love the idea of the
pursuit of what one thinks they need, only to find what they truly
need is right there all along.
I am a bit of a romantic, go figure.
Shows: I watch things on Netflix these days, as well as HuluPlus.
Breaking Bad, Orange is the New Black, True Blood, Game of Thrones,
Being Human, Dexter, Heroes, Psych, Parks and Recreation, The
Office... Many shows, all of which I enjoyed thoroughly.
Music: I could list bands for days but to keep things short, my
tastes are eclectic and mainstream at the same time.
Food: Italian. Love it! But I will try almost anything. I say
almost because I am a realist. There are some foods that simply
should not be.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Pursuit of knowledge
To not be so serious, I could not live without the internet. It
provides so much! I also feel that I could not live without music.
I seriously need it, as I think many of us do. I couldn't live
without comedy either. It's important to laugh and have a sense of
humor about things.
Also rum and/or whiskey. Rum if I'm mixing; whiskey if it's
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Things to improve upon, both in myself and the house I recently
purchased. It was my grandparents and after growing up in it, I
decided to buy it when they moved into a retirement
Also, I spending a lot of time just thinking in general. I analyze
(possibly over-analyze) everything. It's just the way my brain is
wired. As of late, most of my thoughts are on things I perceive I
need to do.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Normally at home. Work keeps me busy so my downtime is spent
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Like most people, I've been hurt in the past and I tend to
internalize my feelings as a result. Give me patience and I'll give
you the same.
