Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Brad.
I'm a wee bit awkward until you get to know me. Plain and simple.
I'm not the best conversationalist, but I'm a much better listener
than speaker. That makes meeting people rather difficult. Which
kinda sucks. But I swear, once you get to know me, I'm pretty
I absolutely love to play guitar. I own 5 electric guitars and they
are some of my most prized possessions. I play almost entirely by
ear. I don't look up tabs or chords if I can avoid it. Though with
some artists, it's just difficult to discern certain parts by ear.
Playing guitar can be a simple way to enjoy passing the time, or
can be a very therapeutic activity for when I've had a rough day. I
mostly play rock and metal, but I enjoy relaxing with a little Pink
Floyd or other classic rock, now and then. (One of my guitars is a
Stratocaster modeled after David Gilmour's)
I reeeeally wish I could play the piano.
I'm a bit of a nerd, seeing as how I write software for a living.
And being such a nerd, I enjoy video games more than the average
person. My big ones are Final Fantasy. Plus, I love music from most
video games. That style of music is designed to be engaging, but
not distracting, which makes it great for work. I have a few of the
Final Fantasy soundtracks and they're all absolutely beautiful.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a graduate (class of '12) of the Computer Science program at KU
and I'm now a software (web) developer for a department in the
School of Education at KU.
Just being me, for the most part. I have a stable job, so I'm not
really looking to move for any reason.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being sarcastic and thinking logically to a point that it hurts

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Honestly, I don't really know. The only really defining things
about me that are readily apparent are my sarcasm and wit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
- Some country now and then, I frequent The Ranch (a country bar
here in Lawrence) (I put this at the top so the metal doesn't just
immediately scare people off)
- Nobuo Uematsu (nerdy video game music)
- The Black Mages (nerdy video game music remade into metal)
- August Burns Red
- Oh, Sleeper
- Lots and lots of other rock/metal
I'm a music lover of most forms. However, I much prefer those
played on actual instruments, so electronic music and hip-hop are
not in my preferences 99 times out of 100. My day-to-day music
taste is usually hard rock and metal. I like going to the
occasional concert, and I'm no stranger to Rockfest in KC.
- The Office (U.S.)
- House of Cards
- How I Met Your Mother
- Parks and Rec
- Once Upon a Time (yeah, I like fantasy)
- American Dad
- Family Guy
- Cartoons before they sucked...I enjoy the old Spongebob episodes,
- How to Furrow Your Brow
- How to Look Chastened
- Anticipating Doorbells
But really, I don't read much (as in, maybe one book every few
years), but the Dexter series was good. I read those a few years
I like most food, be it Italian, Mexican, BBQ, you name it.
Chipotle is a mild weakness, especially now that there's one
located between work and home. I also recently found a po' boy
place in town just south of 8th and Vermont called Terrebonne. It's
terrific. Go there and thank me later.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Computers and/or the Internet (I work on 'em...would be hard to
make a living)
- Friends and family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Guitar parts to song
What to watch next on Netflix
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either playing games with friends or out having a good time. Kinda
varies. Lately, Netflix and I have become good friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Huh...I don't really know. I'll figure out something good to put
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- You like technology
- You like games (video or tabletop)
- You like the same sort of music as I do
- You know the difference between "your" and "you're"...also that
there is no "a" in "definitely".
Or if I just seem so freaking awesome that you feel like it, fire
