My self-summary
Hey there, internet stranger, I'm Roman, unfortunately not born in Rome but in Moscow, Russia. I've also spent quite some time in Canada while completing my undergrad, traveled for a number of internships and finally settled down in Seattle (hopefully...moving every 4 months really does get tiring).
I'm a developer, currently at Amazon, part of a rather small team concerned with improving product recommendations for customers. I get to play with a ton of data while trying to come up with creative solutions and you'll just have to take my word for it, it's a lot of fun!

If you like board games, beer, lifting weights, or the cutest of puppies...we'll definitely get along!
(OK, that last one was a bit cheap...)
What I’m doing with my life
I do a lot normal things like walking the dog, drinking tea, going to work, drinking tea, going to the gym, drinking tea...

I also do some stuff that's more fun:
Board game nights at Cafe Mox.
Epic BBQs with all my friends over the weekend (I don't even care if the weather doesn't agree...it's summer regardless!).
Rock climbing (I swear, *they* made me do it).

I used to do quite a bit of archery (still have my recurve) and took some static trapeze classes but those are currently on hold, the former due to lack of field, the latter due to lack of a consistent open time window.

I also spend all my money on Kickstarter projects. It's bad.

Bonus: some stuff I will do in the near future:
1) Get a dog, it'll be a Shiba.
This goal has been achieved!

2) Get a motorcycle (again).
There's also a long-term plan to combine #1 and #2...one can dream.

3) Learn how to fly. This is more of a "next few years" thing.
I’m really good at
There's the obvious work-related stuff, but apart from that I'm pretty good at solving logic puzzles and organizing people.

Lately I've been getting much better at snapping my fingers and saying "No! Bad!" in my sternest voice.
The first things people usually notice about me
If you see me on the street, I'm probably walking fast. Really fast.
(If I'm with my dog it's pretty funny because we'll pass a bunch of people...stop to let him sniff the flowers, the people will catch up to us and then we take off again)

I'm really damn excited about pretty much everything. That, combined with my extreme confidence, can intimidate quieter people and I've been told to reserve my enthusiasm in order to avoid scaring those who don't know me too well. Working on it...

It also seems like I have an approachable vibe, people always ask me for directions (bad idea) or to spot them at the gym...
Old ladies love to strike up conversations on buses/trains. I don't mind.
(Alternatively, it could be because I'm the only one not wearing headphones and/or playing with my phone)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I suspect that most people don't care for my 10-page list of favorites so here's a link to a paste of them if you want to check it out. It's a bit out of date so if you really want to know what I watched last night, ask...

Food is a hard one for me. I'll eat pretty much anything so singling out favorites is not easy.
On weekdays the burrito truck at Boren/Republican is a common destination. For "fancier" fare, I'd never say no to sushi, dim sum or really anything my friends want to have (I am the most adventurous eater in the group).
Cooking for myself is easier, I usually don't do anything fancy. Chicken, steaks and huge salads are dinner staples. I will often go out to the apartment patio and grill some stuff for dinner.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order of course
1) Friends and family
2) My computer and internet
3) Books
4) Exercise and some associated equipment (at this point I get super cranky if I'm separated from my foam roller for longer than a weekend)
5) Sleep (apart from needing it for silly things like survivial)
6) At the risk of sounding cheesy, I really do like a challenge and get bored without them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics/recent events, recent developments in science/tech, the usual stuff. I can actually find pretty much anything interesting and while I won't go out and research random topics, I'm always happy to discuss things that I previously knew nothing about.

Copyright and patent reform. The current state and direction of legislation is really bothering me...and the problem is that this is not only happening in the US, but in Europe as well. The world was clearly not ready for the internet...
On a typical Friday night I am
I never feel compelled to go out just because it's day X but it is entirely possible that I was out with friends/coworkers for a bit and then retired home to drink liters of tea and watch an episode or two.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This is 4 months. In case anyone ever wonders whether I can grow facial hair....
(Don't worry, the beast is gone and is unlikely to ever return)

I type with two fingers, I look at the keys as I type, still somehow manage 60+wpm.

I often tear up during movies or while reading. It doesn't even have to be an emotional moment...I just can't help it. Went to see How To Raise Your Dragon 2 recently...oh boy...
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 20–30
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
I don't want to waste anyone's time, I'm on OKC to find potential dates. If we exchanged a few messages and seem to get along please don't be surprised if I try to plan an outing of some sort.

That said, if you're into some of the stuff I mentioned and need a lifting partner or want to join my friends and I for a board game night, let me know.

(Also, if you want to work out at a gym but have no idea where to start, give me a shout. I provide free, although definitely non-professional, advice)

P.S. Did you peruse my photos, wrinkle your brow in disgust and think "ugh, not a single shirtless selfie"? Did you drift to sleep while reading my self-summary? Leave some feedback!
