Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Oh boy, a place to put a self summary! My favourite!
So, a little about me. I'm a third year phd student at UCSD,
working on fancy nerdy stuff that I find cool enough to push real
life away for. Before this, I was an MS student at Stanford, and
before that, I spent the better half of my formative years
freezing my ass off in the great white north-east.
I'm looking to meet cool people to hang out and do stuff with.
Shared interests are always a plus, so I'll go ahead and list some
of the stuff I feel good about:
1. Beer. Delicious Beer. This is one of the reasons I'm super
satisfied that I ended up in this city.
2. Action movies. Ninjas with swords taking down pirates flying
3. Climbing. I've only recently started getting into this.
Basically, I'm afraid of heights, and thought this would be a great
way to get over it.
There's a bunch more, but I thought I'd keep this short. Message me
if you want to know more!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'll be in grad school for a few years. I work in the summers
typically (usually in the SF bay area doing software), though that
might change the closer I come to graduating.
I'm also trying to pick up some hobbies to keep me occupied on the
side. Maybe I'll get a pilot's license, and make everyone call me
Dr. Pilot after I graduate. I still need to figure that one
EDIT: Actually, I'm halfway through doing just that right now. I've
officially landed a plane more times than I've been in a plane that
someone else landed. Granted, when it's someone else, it's a much

reading books really fast. If it gets my attention, I'll burn
through about 100 pages an hour.
The proudest, and most ashamed, that I've ever been of myself was
the time I read the Legacy of the Drow trilogy in one night.

I try not to take things too seriously.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The kinds where a plucky young kid has to leave his farm,
get onto his (horse/motorbike/starfighter) and save the day.
My favourite book, though, is Snowcrash.
Music: I enjoy classic rock (eg: Led Zeppelin, Steve Miller), 80s
pop (eg: Bowie, Blondie), and most anything from the 90s due to
nostalgia. I'm not super familiar with newer stuff, though I'd
happily take any recommendations.
A current favourite is "Life's been good", by Joe Walsh.
Movies: The Watchmen. Also a soft spot for Titanic, mostly because
the scene with the ship breaking in half is kind of cool.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This list has a habit of changing based on how I feel on any given
day. But usually:
1. Trashy sci-fi. My only weakness.
2. Goals. Lists. Lists of goals. I'm no good without a day
3. Stupid internet websites that only waste time. Tvtropes.
4. My car. Not cars in general, but specifically, my car. The
shifter throw and clutch weight is *perfect*.
5. My friends. I get by with a little help from them.
6. The heater in my apartment. This is essential anytime before

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
doing stuff with friends around SD. They like going to restaurants
with things like "artisinal" written in the menu somewhere. I
mostly just enjoy their company.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

My dream job has always been "Starfighter pilot".
It's not really private, it just doesn't usually come up, you know?
