Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am originally from Michigan, I moved to the Bay Area years ago
for work. I am hilarious; I love puns, comedies, comedy shows and
so forth. Even terribly stupid comedy movies. I am fairly liberal,
but not overly political. I loathe ignorance (blame college for
that one, damn critical thinking skills.) I am sarcastic. I am a
loving friend. I prefer thinking things through; big decisions are
best left to stew overnight. I like talking and listening. I tend
to talk a lot. I like to cook and eat. Going out is nice, but so is
staying in and making a homemade meal. I love watching Good Eats
and making stuff I saw on the show.
I am trying to do rock climbing on a regular basis (indoors at
planet granite in Sunnyvale.) I am also trying to do at least one
hike a month on a hike that I have not yet done in the bay
(tricky!) I enjoy hiking a lot, but I tend to have my favorites
that i do over and over.
I am looking for someone who doesn't mind a day hike or maybe some
camping. Cooking is a plus (I love cooking.) Someone who likes to
travel is also good (I like to travel.) Don't be afraid to try new
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I write computer software for a tech company (shocking). In my
spare time I am trying to put together some travel plans for a
world tour of waterfalls. I volunteer at Second Harvest food bank.
I am currently attempting to learn photography, so I can photograph
some waterfalls and have pictures that are not horrible.
This year (2015) I plan to go to Hawaii, Australia, Oregon,
Washington, and probably Paso Robles.
Finally looking at getting some sort of house or condo or
something. I've been renting here for a while.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Doing stupid things on a dare
Listening to people
singing to the radio while driving / in the shower.

Gray hair. It crept in early and I dyed it back to brown for a
while; not anymore though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I try to read one or two books a month. I really enjoyed the
Silo series by Hugh Howie. Harry Potter was good. The Martian by
Andy Weir. The Art of Racing in the Rain. The book Thief. I also
read some 'non-fiction' books like The Disappearing Spoon,
Freakonomics, and Outliers: The story of Success.
TV: Netflix and Hulu. I manage to keep tabs on Castle, Bones,
Doctor Who, Top Gear, Hells Kitchen, Archer and Suits.
Music: Varies with my mood. Vienna Teng, generic pop stuff,
trance.fm at work. Lindsey Stirling. I tend to like songs more than
bands, particularly when songs invoke good memories. For instance,
I'm not normally a Dixie Chicks fan, but Sin Wagon is a great song
because it reminds me of a difficult RockBand song.
Food: Willing to try anything. Pad Thai is delicious. So are
cookies..and bacon. Natto is disgusting. Willing to put anything in

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing board games with friends
Going out to dinner.
Sometimes, I even combine the two. Exciting I know!
This past year I've been travelling a lot of weekends, so my Friday
is either spent in the car (ugh) or out and about wherever I happen
to be ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once traveled from Michigan to California to meet random internet
friends. Fun was had by all and we are still friends today.
