Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Recovering nerd looking for adventure. But not extreme adventures,
just the regular kind. You know what they say, "You only live
once." That's why you should be extra careful and always wear a
helmet when you're biking (though I'm pretty sure a helmet will not
save you from certain death when hurtling down a hill at 40 miles
I just finished my master's so now I'm figuring out what to do with
this "free time" thing. So far I've been getting back into lifting
and biking. Lots and lots of biking. Also looking into becoming a
professional cat hugger.
I've traveled the world but only when I was younger. So I don't
remember any of it. So now I'm looking to do it again but hopefully
remember this time. I did teach English in China after graduating
college though. They walk upside down there because it's on the
other side of the world. True story.
I do not feel particularly strongly about the Oxford comma; but I
am incensed by how few people use the subjunctive mood.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My five year plan is to make friends with someone who owns a dog.
And I guess I make a living by making home possible for the
American tax payer.
Undergrad at UVa, grad at GMU. I have degrees in mathematics,
economics, statistics, and being a huge nerd. Alas, the last one
was only an honorary degree so it does not show up on my
transcript. It's safe to assume that I like numbers; either that or
I just really hate myself.
I've steadily been losing weight (55 pounds so far!) through
biking, lifting (power), and not eating carbs. Please do not be
offended if I pass on all things sweet and starchy. And yes, I
would love for you to have my fries. And my dessert.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making a fool of myself.
Scratching cat tummies.
Dropping things. And picking them up I guess. But dropping is the

My ass? Years of rigorous squatting will do that. Plus you know,
the bike shorts.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Food - Anything except cilantro. Oh and no carbs. Unless I'm biking
a century, then I will eat carbs. ALL THE CARBS. I also love to
cook. I am proud to say nobody (important) has ever died from
eating my cooking.
TV - Hannibal is the best thing on TV right now. Mads Mikkelssen's
accent is just so dreamy. Brooklyn-99 is the best comedy though
Louie is a close second. I'm sorry if you disagree--sorry that you
have such poor taste.
Music - I really only listen to like German death reggae, Halloween
sound effects from the 1950s, and Bette Midler. Obviously.
Movies - I liked American Beauty before it was hipster. Ironic, yes
I know. Eternal Sunshine, Amores Peros, United States of Leland ...
well this sure isn't helping my case. I'm not pretentious I swear!
I also have an (un)healthy obsession with Kevin Spacey.
Books - Favorites include Catch-22, Dune, and all 5 parts of the

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

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Mixed strategy Nash equilibria.
If I was a starboard for one year and then switched to port, does
that still make me bisweptual?
How am I supposed to cliplessly clip into my clipless pedals if the
clips are clipless?
How the political right in this country has managed to attain a
curly mustache twirling level of evilness and yet is still able to
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

I have never seen The Princess Bride. Please let me know if you can
help me rectify this.
I get really excited over how fuzzy my cats are; it's a problem
because they're never not fuzzy.
