Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What can I say, I'm tall, handsome, and intelligent.
Seriously though: I grew up abroad so I have all sorts of odd gaps
in my cultural knowledge that are fun to fill in. I like watching
sports in bars and getting rowdy when my team wins. I like learning
about how messed up the U.S. political economy is because,
apparently, I like being angry. I stay up late. I go hiking and
canoeing as often as I can. For someone who never practices, I'm
really quite good at table sports. If you want to understand my
world view, watch this 30 second clip:
I'm currently hoping any or all of that sounds interesting.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Seriously considering my options. I've been at it for a little
while now. Still considering.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
As mentioned above, table sports. But really, games and strategy in
general. I really enjoy a close, well played game, even if I lose.
For instance, if you like board games or card games, even vanilla
ones like Spades or Chess, you should message me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I don't have much (read: any) hair on the top of my head. I
keep it short and well groomed like Jean-Luc and I like how it
looks. But if baldness truly disgusts you, let me know beforehand
so I can wear a hat.

David Mitchell is pretty much my favorite author currently. A lot
of the books on my to read list right now are by Salman Rushdie (I
read his memoir first, which I think is the opposite of what you
are suppose to do, but hey, it got me hooked). I broke my kindle
recently so I haven't been reading as much as I should. Lousy
excuse, I know, but the thing really is (was) very convenient.
Quality Scifi is often on my reading list and I could always reread
the Game of Thrones series one more time.
Jurassic Park is the best movie ever.
Peep Show and That Mitchell and Webb look are both incredible. I
also like Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Northern Exposure, and
Parks and Recreation.
I'm reasonably adventurous with food. I like Indian and Thai in
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The Orioles and/or Ravens
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to make public transportation in this city better without
costing too much money. How to go about making a game of reverse
Monopoly call "Urban Decay". How best to avoid giving in
(completely) to corporate America, one day at a time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hopefully with my friends, either out on the town or at home having
some beers, quite possibly while playing a game.
You should message me if
