My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In my past life, I worked on Wall Street. In my current life, I build internet companies aimed at solving social problems. I still own suits, but I'm happier wearing jeans now. I also know the lyrics to most Dr. Dre songs, but that's only because I identify with him so much.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Building things on the internet. Teaching is important to me and in a variety of ways I spend some of my time doing it. I'm working towards the day when I will have a barn made of stone and will put science things and power tools in it. Its totally cliche but I'm training for a marathon. I like to do stuff outside; the more trees or stars the better.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Eating cookies. I can eat cookies with the best of them. In the mountain towns of New Zealand, legends are told of my ability to eat cookies. I'm also decent at push-ups, but you should focus on the cookie thing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Every now and again, a lady behind a counter or on the bus tells me I have nice hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books:
Reading is the first thing I remember caring about that wasn't a person or didn't live in the creek behind our house.

A few favorites: For Whom the Bell Tolls, The Silmarilion (specifically, the creation story, if we're gonna nerd out about it), Cryptonomicon, Wuthering Heights, Pride and Prejudice, Enders Game.

I once read Cicero's Letters while sitting waist-deep in the Mediterranean which weird as it may sound was fucking awesome. (I have a mild obsession with the late roman republic.) Lately, for a new project, I've been reading everything Mark Twain wrote.

Movies:
Fifth Element, Gattica, The Hunt for Red October, The Princess Bride, Spy Game, Love Actually, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, the Empire Strikes Back, the Sandlot.

This year's movies: Silver Linings Playbook (see it). The Intouchables was funny to tears. All three Dark Knight movies back-to-back; try it.

Music:
Most recent download was Max Richter's recomposition of Vivaldi's Four Seasons; its beautiful.

Last song on Spotify was by Kinnie the Explorer. Ran this morning to The Black Keys. There's currently a "no dubstep" rule in effect. I'm up for dancing to about anything; just pass me your favorite bourbon first?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Wikipedia.
2. The blue zip up hoody I'm wearing right now.
3. Cookies.
4. My brother.
5. Trees.
6. Enthusiasm.

Honorable mentions: The minor key. Laughing with a pretty, intelligent woman. A comfortable sofa. Pizza, even the national chain kind. Four seasons. Things designed by Stanford White or Frederick Olmstead. Breakfast burritos. Amazon Prime. Fresh squeezed orange juice.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm fortunate to work in a field that allows for problem-solving and creativity with stimulating people and the resources to turn our ideas into reality. So if I zone in the shower, it's usually because I'm excited for what I'm working on that day.

Some of the rest of the time:
What hot sauce should be on what I'm about to eat. The Maillard Reaction and how it creates deliciousness. Evaluating whether this is too close to the platform edge.

Is there data on that? Locating where in my house I will install a pull up bar and how my landlord will react. Whether its even possible to more perfectly load this dishwasher. What kind of day the people in this elevator car are having. What's the time signature of this song? Proper usage of the semi-colon; its my favorite mark of punctuation.

Whether I can climb this tree. Do some of these statements need questions marks? Not forgetting to order more of that delicious beef jerky from that place in Oklahoma. Whether the OKCupid robot is really any good at figuring out a person's personality. Should I really pick up this book sitting in this box on the street...I haven't read the last one yet.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Same thing we do every night, Pinky.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a recovering never-nude.
