Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Logophile and music junkie with an outdoors bent. I try to take the
stairs and drive with the windows down. I hold that "Whatever" is a
phrase that should generally be replaced with "Hell, yeah!" and the
question "What are you reading?" should always have an
On a quest to find the best waterfalls, dumplings, cocoa, and
brunch (not necessarily in one location...)
I'm very much into enjoying what I do, when I can't do what I
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Spent most of the last 5 years abroad as a Naval officer, but
Newport is my last stop. Trying to jam pack as many live shows,
runs, hikes, streaking sessions, great books, eschaton matches,
treasure hunts, G.R.O.S.S. meetings, musings, and lazy sundays into
the offtime as I can.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Looking up words I frequently use, every time I use them, to make
sure they still mean what I think they mean (childhood hero
turned cautionary tale #1: Vizzini.)
-Licking my elbow (I was a champion before the phantom limb
juicers took over the sport)
I also recently learned how to make ice cubes the right way. I used
to dump the extra water out so they wouldn't freeze together, but
that's the part that makes them easier to grab! My cold-drink
making efficiency has increased threefold.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes when I bike around the city I narrate the journey to
myself. According to the looks I get, that's crazy talk. Maybe I
need more fun facts.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-add9 Chords (Closely followed by major 7ths)
-Companions (Preferably of the brave sort...)

And those runs where your shuffle picks all the perfect songs.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

In a vacuum, I prefer a nightspot where I can make eye contact and

herd, or one where swing dancing (poorly, for now) is
I'm even happier to gather an intimate group on a collection of
couches, perhaps settling Catan or Puerto Rico, nurturing a fire,
or passing pictionary-telephone scrawlings around, laughing and
creating new touchstones.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I lived in Bahrain, I often left the A/C on low enough that it
was a little chilly without a blanket. I love the ability to curl
up with a blanket. I'm so sorry, Earth.
