Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First off, please ignore the ridiculous screen
My friend made me start this account as a joke while we were both
pretty inebriated (and I think this was back in summer 2011), but
I've met some pretty cool people along the way and by then it was
too late to change names. Guess I'm stuck with
I like to keep these short because I'm more of a face-to-face guy
so I don't believe in trying to write a life story in a few
I spent six years (Aug 2008 to June 2014) in the USA studying
Industrial engineering, and now I am back in Switzerland. I have
realized that this isn't what I want to do with my life so I've
altered my career path significantly. Read below to see what I'm
I love music and I love playing my guitar; there's no day where I
don't listen to music and I can't go most days without picking up
the guitar if even for just a few minutes, although with my current
job, the latter has been put on hold for a while.
I'm pretty witty and have a pretty good sense of humor. I'm
probably one of the most honest people you will ever meet, which
means I can be a little blunt sometimes.
Also, I have three tattoos, two of them Greek Mythology based. Feel
free to ask me about them! =)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently I'm a rescue soldier and platoon leader, rank Sergeant
Chief (Oberwachtmeister), of the Swiss army, which is basically a
hybrid of being a soldier and fireman with more focus on being a
fireman. It's pretty awesome.
I am currently making my way through the ranks to become a 2LT
(Leutnant) and then plan on continuing with the military as a
career. This will include having to go and complete a military
specific Bachelor of Arts at the ETH Military Academy in Zurich for
three and a half years.
Eventually the plan is to become a Berufsoffizier, or a career
officer in English.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening to what people have to say, playing guitar (more than 13
years), soccer/football, making people laugh (stand up comedy),
cooking, holding an interesting conversation, and making new
...And kissing. Just thought I'd throw that out there, haha.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My sharp wit, three day stubble/slightly-more-than-five day beard,
straight shooter attitude... and apparently my eyes?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books - Angels & Demons, Deception Point, any of
the Tucker Max books, Chamber of Secrets, I, Robot.
Many more I can't think of off the top of my head right now.

Californication, Walking Dead, Spartacus, Big Bang Theory, Parks
and Rec, Arrested Development, Lost, Louie, Orange is the new
black, House of Cards... probably a few more but I can't think of
them right now.
Food - Italian, Thai, Chinese, Indian, Mexican, Swiss, and
Music - pretty much everything. Big fan of rock/metal and film
score music, and I really like classical, blues, country, and jazz
as well. And you can throw in some trance/electronica in there too.
My musical taste is very eclectic.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- My guitars (four total, hoping to get a new acoustic at some
- Music/my iPod.
- Thai food.
- Contacts/glasses because I didn't win the genetic lottery in this
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

professional goals, and occasionally when/where/how am I going to
meet the girl of my dreams.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Typically I would be out with some old friends from high school,
otherwise I'll be at home either reading, jamming out on my guitar,
or watching Netflix/a movie if I'm kaput from the week. Since I am
on base on Fridays at the moment, my Friday nights consist of
whatever work needs to be done there.

tattooed, bearded men in uniform are your thing.
And especially if you are a cute brunette with light colored eyes
(blue, green, grey, light brown/amber), there's a certain
je-ne-sais-quoi about that hair/eye combination that I really like.
Or if you're a red head; I think I might have a thing for red
Or whatever your hair color; it really doesn't matter. These are
just superficial things.
And I need new friends here in Basel because almost everyone I knew
before I left for the US has gone away, so feel free to drop me a
