Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The wise philosopher D.R. Suess once said [Edit: Didn't say]: "Be
who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't
matter and those who matter don't mind". I endeavor to follow that
Suessical wisdom... and one day I hope to fall in mutual weirdness
with someone special that appreciates my brand of

know's who he is?]
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Everything I can to make it a happy, balanced, sustainable one. I
moved to Ballard in July '11 to be closer to work. When I'm not
trying to find and build a new circle of friends I'm usually
Finding fresh air and water (hiking etc.), and helping contractors
keep them that way while I'm at work (as an environmental
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Enjoying nature/the simple things
Wearing my heart on me sleeve
Having fun with music and instruments
Fixing things using whatever is laying around
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I currently have more hair on my face than my head.
As a self-effacing introvert I happily assume that people don't
notice things about me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm one of those easily engrossed readers, so if I'm reading a
novel I really can't get anything else done till I finish it.
Because of that I tend to stick with short stories , or Something
techie, Historical, or Sciency... But there are a couple that I
need to find time for one of these days.
Whatever makes me think, laugh, cheer, or is just amazingly
campy... Tropic Thunder; The Usual Suspects; Gattaca; Zombieland;
I-Robot; The Game; 3:10 to Yuma; The Shawshank Redemption; Cowboys
and Aliens; Hudson Hawk; etc.
I rarely watch anything being broadcast, but when I'm in the mood
for some mindlessness I download/stream: AMC shows about Zombies,
Railroads, and Aliens; shows about Thrones, Blood, and News on HBO;
all manner of wackiness on BBC; This one Horror Story on FX; Some
really nerdy/original stuff from SyFy; and a couple bad sit-coms
like this one about a Korean exchange student named
Nearly all of it, I'm not a music snob at all. I'm an Alt Rock kid
at heart, but I love the abstract structure of jazz; the intricacy
of classical; the energy of rock; the heart of blues; the simple
joys in country; the mindless appeal of 'hits'; the flow of rap;
and the rumble of EDM.
Anything from Dive-Bar Nachos to a four course Moroccan dinner, but
I'm not a fan of certain textures, so I'm probably not going to
shoot a full plate of oysters any time soon.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Apart from the assumed things I REALLY couldn't do without, the
things that help me to be happy/healthy/sane include:
6) a Pocket Knife
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether it's time to risk starting my own company, or if I should
be content working for good people
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Getting ready for Saturday plans; being really lazy after a hard
week; Trying to figure out which friends want to go out for a bite
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
As dangerous as it is... I love banter, one might even call it a
banter fetish. If you can't give/take a joke, laugh at yourself,
laugh at me, and do it all while knowing that you're respected, and
making it clear that you respect me, there's very little chance
that we'll spark.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You feel like it.
You think baldish beardos are sexy (that's my current motif)
You want to (throw a frisbee in a park, get a drink at a dive, play
some pool/shuffleboard, sing/watch some karaoke, go for a hike
(locally or in the mountains), paddle a canoe in the arboretum, go
see a band play, show me your favorite spot (in or out of town).
