Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi everyone! I'm Michael, a software engineer living the dream in
Palo Alto, CA. I'm a very laid-back and happy person, but I also
spend a lot of time working hard doing what I love. I'm passionate
about solving important problems in the world through technology,
and that's exactly what I get to do every day at work. It's a truly
rewarding career and I intend to stay at it for quite a
I'm a big sports fan, both playing and watching. I played a lot
before college (mostly baseball), and still get in a good game of
ultimate frisbee, wiffle-ball, tennis, and more with co-workers and
friends whenever possible. I follow college football pretty
religiously when it's in season.
I'm kind of a homebody, so you'll rarely find me out at bars or
clubs, but I do spend my evenings with a good group of friends
enjoying something fun together.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently a software engineer in Palo Alto. I live close to the
office and have the wonderful luxury of walking to work every day.
Outside of work, I spend my evenings with my college and work
Long term, I plan to stay in Silicon Valley. It's hands down the
best place for a computer science person like me. I might go back
to school someday, but will probably end up back in the valley
either back at Stanford or working in the tech industry.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Playing DDR for hours on end
Sleeping for 16 hours after staying up way too late way too many
days in a row
Singing operatic songs at karaoke night
Giving back massages
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, there's one really good way to find out, I guess...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Generally into fantasy / sci-fi, but I enjoy most things that are
The Wheel of Time
Lord of the Rings
As with books, I like fantasy and sci-fi a lot, but more generally
I like things that are visually beautiful and/or intellectually
stimulating. I also don't mind movies that are just fun or cute but
I mostly watch sports and anime, but I like comedy shows as
Football, baseball, basketball, tennis, soccer, pretty much any
Avatar: The Last Airbender
I listen to a lot of music from video games and animes (which is
surprisingly good if you've never tried it), but I also enjoy
classical, music from musicals, and pretty much anything else
that's well-written and is interesting in some way (which tends to
exclude country and a large chunk of pop music)
Two Steps from Hell
I love asian food of pretty much all kinds. Indian is probably my
favorite, closely followed by Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and
Vietnamese. I also like American and Italian a lot, and of course
the old staples of pizza, burgers, etc.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends / Family
Something exciting to work on
A good story to get lost in
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to leverage technology to solve real-world problems
My current project at work
Whatever I'm currently reading / playing / watching
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually having a low-key get-together with some close friends. I'm
not much of a partier, and I don't do the club scene, but I do love
a good boardgames / video games / hang out and do whatever night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm pretty open about things, so just ask away :)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-You have a healthy tolerance for, or better yet enjoy,
-Your idea of a great night is more of a few close friends doing
something fun together and less of a large group of people going
out for drinks, dancing, partying, etc.
-You think we might be great friends!
