Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grow out a beard from November through April, and shave it off
for the summer.
I love to learn new things. I hold myself to a high standard, and I
am strongly self-motivated. I like to take something good and turn
it into something amazing.
I like to play disc (frisbee) golf. It's a fun way to go out and
spend an afternoon. I also like taking bike trips along the Leon
Creek greenway trail.
My Myers-Briggs personality type is INTJ. This wikipedia article
describes me very well: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/INTJ
I like parentheses.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a software developer. I am happy with my job, because it lets
me use my logical side as well as my creative side to solve
challenging technical problems.
I host a regular board game night at my house. My current favorite
game is Power Grid.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I consider myself a musical person. I enjoy playing the cello and
singing barbershop (I'm a bass).
I'm a good negotiator. (The secret is to do your research ahead of
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height (no contest).
It's kind of funny how many complete strangers will walk up to me
and ask if they can take a picture with me. I always oblige, of
course, because I'm nice like that, but there are always a few
people who try to take my picture surreptitiously and don't do a
good job hiding their intentions. I sometimes wonder how many
random photo albums I'm in.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am a big fan of short stories (all genres). I am currently
reading Nate Silver's The Signal and the Noise about the science of
Netflix would say that I'm a fan of witty comedies and cerebral
thrillers. I really like movies with time-travel. Primer is a great
example in this category.
I'm not a fan of most live shows because I feel they are
overproduced. I do like live music at a hole-in-the-wall during a
meal. I would enjoy going to see an orchestra concert or an opera,
although I'm not really a theater person.
On the radio, I listen to NPR the most, followed by classical and
then country music. My favorite NPR shows are the Freakonomics
podcast, This American Life, and Car Talk.
My favorite food is barbeque. I received a drum smoker as a gift,
and I use it every few weeks now. The process can take up to 10-12
hours, so it's very rewarding to enjoy the finished product. My
favorite meats are brisket and pork ribs.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Puns, internet radio, table tennis, frisbee golf, college sports,
and good debates.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to improve the world.
How to respond when someone says "Man you're tall." My current
favorite response is "Thanks, I work out."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching a movie or playing games with friends.
