Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I would describe myself as a tech savvy, code-writing computer guy
who is also an athletic, avid sports player and fan; I guess you
could call me a walking paradox. I call myself an avid sports fan
because I can watch pretty much anything. You know that sport
curling? Right, well you shouldn't. But during the Winter Olympics,
yeah, I watch it. I'd mostly chalk that up to my curiosity to
understand things that I don't know and I'm intrigued by, which
explains my affinity for the show "How It's Made" or "Mythbusters"
on the Discovery Channel... but I digress.
I'm born and raised in Houston, but I'm a Cowboys fan. Texans fans
that are reading this, please slowly put the knife down... I just
moved on when the Oilers deserted us and I couldn't abandon my new
team when the Texans appeared. On the other hand, I am an Astros,
Rockets and Aggies fan so I do love my hometown teams. Yes, Aggies,
so Longhorns fans, please also put down the knives... can't we all
just get along?
I'd have to say I'm a very simplistic person, it doesn't take very
much to make me happy and I'm definitely not the ostentatious or
gaudy type, i.e. no Ed Hardy or Affliction shirts, no big diamond
chain or earrings, no spray tans or greased up hair. If you've
already seen my profile picture, the last two are probably
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Ever since the age of about 4, I've been doing something with
computers, starting out by being a young entrepreneur playing
Lemonade Stand, to becoming a survivalist on Oregon Trail, to
appalling my teachers at being able to type over 100 words per
minute and getting my first real job as a web designer in high
school. I always knew I'd be doing something with computers for my
career, it was just a matter of finding out what suited my long
term interests and I found it: I'm a developer for a small company
where I develop computer applications ranging from web sites to
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
technology (I'm the tech savvy guy that gets "employed" by my
friends and family to fix things for them), sudoku/word searches,
listening to others, making my friends laugh, letting my fruits and
vegetables go bad before I finish them all (don't you hate that?),
playing video games, wasting time on reddit and sports.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...are my eyes and smile.
I've had some people say I look like T.I. and my sister thinks I
look like Pharrell from N.E.R.D. I think they're all wrong, but
that's just me. What do you think?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Since mandated reading always felt like a form of punishment
in school, I've never been one to read actively for fun, but there
are still a handful of books that I did enjoy. 1984
, Fahrenheit 451
, The Scarlet Letter
and To Kill A Mockingbird
would probably fall on that list. Despite not being a big book
reader, I do stay active on daily news to be cognizant on current
world affairs and random tidbits and I guess I could be convinced
to read a book if it's intriguing enough.
Movies: While I prefer a comedy or action movie over probably
anything else (I'm a guy, surprised?), I'd say my list of memorable
favorites is actually pretty diverse: Friday
, Half Baked
, Harold & Kumar
, Lock Stock
& Two Smoking Barrels
, Office Space
, Seven Pounds
, Slumdog Millionaire
Pursuit of Happyness
, The 40 Year Old Virgin
, 8 Mile
, Despicable Me
, How High
, Safe House
, Step Brothers
, The Pursuit Of
, The Intouchables
TV Shows: The
, Breaking Bad
. I'd honestly say that
you could stop there when it comes to shows because those, in my
opinion, are the best TV shows hands down that I've ever watched.
Other shows that I would give "honorable mention", or are working
to attain that level of greatness, would be: 30 Rock
, Arrested Development
, Game of Thrones
, House of Cards
Met Your Mother
, It's Always
Sunny in Philadelphia
, Modern Family
, Parks and
, Big Bang Theory
, The Newsroom
(before Steve Carell left), Workaholics
, American Dad
, South Park
, Family Guy
, Aqua Teen Hunger
, King of the Hill
some others that I'm not thinking of at the moment. Well, ESPN
, but that goes without
, Young Jeezy
, Lloyd Banks
, Wiz Khalifa
, Lil' Wayne
, Childish Gambino
, My Chemical Romance
, Lupe Fiasco
, Kid CuDi
, Talib Kweli
, Linkin Park
, The Roots
, Mac Miller
, Justin Timberlake
, Robin Thicke
, Flying Lotus
, Maroon 5
, Rage Against The
, Fall Out Boy
, Gym Class Heroes
System Of A
... I could go on forever.
Basically, anything except country... sorry, but I just can't get
into it. And yeah, I know that's also surprising considering I went
to Texas A&M...
Food: The answer that went on the sidebar pretty much epitomizes my
appetite with food, "Mostly anything". Steak, italian, burgers,
BBQ, catfish, chicken, sushi... I'll be back, I'm hungry now. Feel
free to leave me a message after the beep.
The six things I could never do without
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.
...let's see, how do I answer this. Let's try this:
Work (or thinking of a way to work more efficiently): 20%
Random things I've encountered throughout the day: 25%
Analyzing my life in some correlated way to those random things:
What this song I'm listening to reminds me of: 10%
How my family/friends are doing: 10%
What else I could be doing instead of what I'm doing now (AKA
Sex/Girls (every 7 seconds, according to studies): 7%
Is there something I forgot to do? 5%
Is something in my nose?: 3%
For those active mathematicians, or if you're simply that bored to
verify it, I know it doesn't add up to 100%... let's just say I'm
very skilled at multitasking or very efficient. Acceptable?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Who really knows... two weekends are never exactly alike.
Regardless of the environment, I'm sure I'm with my friends
laughing and having fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...is that I watch Spongebob. I'm still a kid at heart and see
absolutely nothing wrong with watching cartoons. Who says we have
to stop watching them to "grow up"? I actually feel nostalgic when
I see some of the old cartoons I used to watch growing up like
Rugrats, Hey Arnold or Animaniacs.
