Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a pretty easy going guy. I think over the years I've become
somewhat successful at developing into a well rounded individual.
I'm an introvert and while I enjoy going out I am perfectly capable
and comfortable in hanging out in silence. I enjoy my alone time
but also appreciate having friends or family around.
I'm told my wit is mostly comprised of snark, sarcasm, with a touch
of outdated TV references. I think I'm okay with that.
I'm a major sucker for a free meal, more so if it's homecooked.
With that said, I love trying new foods. I'll try anything once. I
guess the most unusual thing I've tried would be Balut in the
Philippines. The "broth" was good but the texture of the... protein
was a little too jarring. Also, visually it was weird. Staring at a
half formed beak while a wet eye stares back at you was a little
tough to swallow.
I also, like most people, have hobbies. I don't like to brag but I
have more than two of them. Awesome right?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
So, I guess I will start with the boring career stuff to get it out
of the way. I have an accounting degree but am currently helping to
manage a small local business. I work primarily out around Davis
but I do spend a couple days staying out in Napa every week. I'm
going to go back to school to take some random classes, thinking
photoshop and anthropology or something.
I'm not your most outdoors kind of guy but there are some things
that get me away from the comforts of controlled temperature and
For funsies, I go fishing pretty regularly when the weather is up.
Nothing like getting away from the hustle and bustle of society and
reconnect with nature. Plus bringing in a salmon or striper is
always a fun fight. I do wish I caught more catfish that were worth
keeping... deepfried catfish mmmmm.
I go mountain biking on some of the local singletracks. I have
pretty pathetic balance so I probably should be better than I
currently am but it's so much fun regardless.
I used to play Tennis but temporarily jacked up my knee and
eventually dropped it. I'm replacing it by getting back into
paintball which is great for when I want to sweat mostly from
adrenaline rather than any kind of effort.
On lazy days I drift off to other worlds by picking up a good novel
or daydreaming. I was teaching myself how to paint but some
douchenozzle broke into the cottage in Napa and stole almost all my
art supplies. So if you have any extra canvases or pads, I am not
above letting you give them to me for free.
I play video games maybe a few hours a week. Check out Frozen
Synapse which is what I'm currently playing when I'm mobile and
need to kill some time. I like Path of Exile for the depth and
I am trying to break out of the ASOIAF reread trap that I'm in. I
leave copies of the series at various places I frequent so I always
end up picking one up from a random spot and end up reading through
the entire series again. Those books are just way too entertaining.
I have a pile of new books that are getting neglected.
I might spend late nights making crappy photoshops to Reddit
comments and stuff. I think they're underappreciated.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I don't know, I'm my harshest critique. The stuff I work on, I do
in private and very few are allowed into that world so I don't get
too much feedback. Not afraid of criticism, just there's hobbies
and interests that I like to keep somewhat private.
With that said, I can also sleep almost anywhere.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's probably my Blutooth ear piece. It still seems that many view
people who wear one as a douchebag. Yeah, I started wearing one for
work but now absolutely love it. Can stream music or podcasts
through it, are you kidding me?
Or more probably probably that I probably look probably tired.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hot showers. I even keep a cheap set of watercolor paint in my
shower so I can paint random things as I think. Apparently
watercolors on wet tiles doesn't work out as well you would think.
Not sure if I'm ready to bust out the acrylics on my rented house's
The Internet. So much to do.
Colors. Especially in nature.
Fruits and Vegetables. I don't eat them as much as I should but
biting into that perfect mango is indescribable.
A vice. I can't always be Mr. Perfect Role Model.
Music. I may not venture out into new stuff as much as I used to as
a teenager but give me some good Psybient or Post-Rock while I'm
driving down some country road watching the sunset and I'm pretty
freaking content with life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to further improve who I am.
And if I could figure out how to work a sewing machine I would
totally make some awesome costumes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well, right now I work Friday nights :(
Buuuut if I decided to stay up late I'd like to go to a board game
meetup. I think that would be neat. I've never been.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really want to get into boardgames like Catan.
