My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In the future, Leonard from "The Big Bang Theory" will invent a time machine and a way to impregnate a man, and he will use these technologies to make a baby with Ted from "How I Met Your Mother". I'm the result. Hooray for science!

Playful, sensitive, nerdy, zany ...

... were cards I won in a recent game of Apples to Apples. They also describe my personality pretty well. Coincidence?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
By day, I teach computers how to think for themselves. When I'm not doing that, I'm probably out exploring the area, making music, salsa dancing, or plain old messing around on the internet.

My hobbies include playing the guitar, playing traditional Japanese and Korean drums, hiking, puzzles and the board game called Go.

I love to travel, and I bet nobody has ever put that in a dating profile before. It excites me to push my boundaries, have adventures and meet new kinds of people. I was born in the USA but didn't grow up here. If you can guess which Southern Hemisphere country I grew up in I'll give you a chocolate fish! And yes, that means I have an accent, if that floats your boat.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Helping people, and solving problems logically. Activities involving rhythm. Science and math. Taking care of friends when they're drunk. Acting with integrity. I'm well on the way towards my goal of fifty consecutive pull-ups.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A straight guy once told me that I have beautiful eyes. It was kind of awkward, but I'll take the compliment.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Oh my God, you like the same obscure bands as me, I think I'm in love with you... is what a hipster would say. I was a non-hipster before it was cool to hate on hipsters, so I'm not going to say too much here. But I like a lot of nerdy stuff.

And you won't guess this one, so I'll tell you free of charge: bacon wrapped dates stuffed with goat cheese. It's like a symphony in your mouth, only more delicious!

Alright, one more:


I don't watch much TV but I am so addicted to that show. Also, anything by Joss Whedon.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends, family and loved ones are the most important but I don't think of them as mere "things." Material things are not really important to me, so I'll stick to the essentials:

Air, food, water, my guitar, a whiteboard, the internet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What it all means. The big questions. Life, the universe and everything. Is world peace possible?

The application of the Gale-Shapley algorithm to OK Cupid.

And why everybody puts "zombie apocalypse" in this box. Is it some kind of secret code? Now it's in my profile too, so you can let me into the secret club now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Interacting with the Higgs field.

Having drinks with friends, going out to see a show, or working if I have to. I feel like we're all supposed to write "partying 'til the break of dawn" here. I'm probably only partying 'til the break of yawn. Which might still be 3am.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was six, I broke my arm jumping down the stairs while singing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song.

I spill food or drink all over myself way too often, for some reason.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
There's a me-shaped hole in your life, and a you-shaped hole in mine. Hopefully you can tell from this profile that I'm two things: sweet and nerdy. You probably need to be one of those two things for us to be compatible, though I won't complain if you prove me wrong.

You should also message me if you have a cool museum, cultural festival or art gallery you'd like to join me at. Or if you want to go salsa dancing.
