Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Generally amusing, occasionally sarcastic, almost always polite and
considerate. I frequently make inappropriate or slightly offensive
jokes which may or may not make you doubt the veracity of the
preceding statement. I can't help it. My inner monologue is a bit
of a smart ass and occasionally tunnels past my filters like Steve
McQueen in "The Great Escape". Unlike Steve McQueen in "The Great
Escape" I have never attempted to jump a motorcycle over a fence
and into Switzerland... but should the opportunity present
itself... Oh, and sometimes I let my stream of consciousness push
my kayak of focus a bit off course.
Things I used to do:
- Work in architecture (maybe again sometime?)
-Work for "the man" in a position within the most "the man"
organization a man could possibly man... man.
- Be an Americorp volunteer in the icy* wilderness of Alaska (where
I punched a moose in the face!)**
- Try way too hard in school.
Things I do now:
- Take pictures from a few thousand feet off the ground.
- Listen to an excessive number of podcasts.
- Continue to use a serial comma before the conjunction "and" in a
list of three or more items, even if it is supposedly no longer a
- Muay Thia a few times a week because sometimes kicking things is
I am carbon based, quick, and a stealth nerd
I prefer two wheeled transportation to the four wheeled variety.
Unless we're talking Segways... in which case I'll just walk.
* It was summer so it wasn't so icy
** Disclaimer: I did not actually punch a moose in the face nor do
I condone moose face punching. Moose are massive, ornery creatures
and should be treated with the utmost respect.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Contemplating a dramatic change in order to kick start the next
chapter. You know, the usual.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Twisting a comment for comedic effect.
-Taking things apart.
I'm somewhat good at:
-Putting things back together again
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"Hmm, he looks vaguely... ethnic...?"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Food: Brownies, pasta
Music: Generally in the Rock vein, toward the punk side, though my
music library is fairly schizo. Recently discovered that I
sometimes enjoy the Parliament Funkadelic. Only about 35 years
behind the times.
Movies: Good SciFi. Horror. Mel Brooks.
Random titles of movies I like in the order they come to me: Best
in show, The Flying Scotsman, Mad Max, Se7en, Volver, Reservoir
Dogs, 12 Monkeys, Shawshank Redemption, Office Space, The Usual
Suspects, Arrested Development (I know it's not a movie, but it is
awesome. Don't you judge me for mixing categories!), oh, and Top
Books: Joe Haldeman, Robert Heinlein, Stephen King, science books
that dumb down the content to the point where someone with two
semesters of college physics or less can understand the general
concepts (ie. Death by Black Hole by Neil Degrasse Tyson)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-a sense of humor
-a bicycle (preferably 2)
-assorted hand tools
-random quotes from movies, music, stand up. Appropriate or
-strong nuclear force
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually at work. Part of the reason I'm on this website I suppose.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a CIA trained non-official cover operative. I know who you are
and I know you're reading this. You know too much.......
No, but seriously, when I'm alone in my apartment I shamelessly air

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You don't mind acting silly every once in a while.
Oh, and I've never made out with a redhead... just saying...
