Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Story time, yay! Let's see, Once upon a time...
... there was a guy who liked to jump out of perfectly good
airplanes in the middle of the night. He traveled all over the
world (sometimes even waiting until the airplane landed before
jumping out) until he hurt his knees and couldn't jump out of
airplanes anymore. He then got a job working for the defense
industry as a civilian, so he got to keep traveling and going to
the far corners of the world, just without having to jump out of
any airplanes. That fellow then decided that he wanted to go to
college, and finally left the world of blowing stuff up for the
world of mining, which really means blowing up rocks instead. He
graduated, met a girl, and found a job with a great company that
builds awesome mining stuff. And now he's happily in an open
relationship and looking for new friends and partners.
Oh, and he doesn't normally speak in the third person. I find that
rather ridiculous, actually.
Okay, more serious. I try to enjoy a little bit of everything about
life. I like books, opera, art, and wine, yet I also like heavy
metal music and heavy metal working (no, seriously, I taught myself
how to weld one summer because I was bored). I have a bunch of
tattoos but none of them are visible in my typical work attire. I
like dressing up in a suit and tie, and I like throwing on some
rough old jeans and getting my hands dirty. I love ice hockey. I
love fixing things. I'm a horrible dancer, but I'll still dance and
enjoy it, because why the hell not?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, traveling, building things, occasionally blowing things
up, and finally catching up on all those books I kept saying I
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Building stuff and solving problems, cooking, and (most of all)
learning new things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I'm dressed so that you can see them, the tattoos. I get a lot
of questions about the ones on my leg.
Or the sense of humor, doing things like Unnecessary Capitalization
of the Word "Beard", ha.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
World domination. Muh-ha-ha-haaaaa!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no typical for me. I might be trying to take over the
world. Or I might be playing softball with my colleagues, or
building something in my garage. Or I might be out to the movies.
There's a lot of good options.
