Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello and welcome to your introduction to me! I think this is the
part where I tell you a few things about myself and what I am
looking for. Let's see...
I am a programmer by trade but don't let that get in the way ;-).
Unlike many of my fellow coders, I am quite social and enjoy the
company of others. I love adventures. There is nothing quite as fun
as exploring an abandoned building in an urban environ. I am
curious about EVERYTHING. I am constantly learning. I enjoy meeting
new people and then getting to know them. I have been told I have a
big heart. I have very blue eyes (that I'm told are quite dreamy).
I am not athletic but I do work out regularly and pitch in a
softball league to try and stay healthy and fit. I know quite a bit
of local San Francisco history and can regale you with tales of
past and show you where those tales took place. I am an officer at
the San Francisco Elks Lodge #3 (it's not just for old people
anymore!) I tend to use too many exclamation points when I txt or
IM people! I've been known to sing karaoke on occasion. I don't
like raw onions in my food (cooked onions are just fine).
Wow. What an awesome self-summary, right?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I currently work a full-time day job as a software architect /
engineer. I am also the founder and CEO of my own profitable
startup, Simple Software, Inc. As I mentioned in my summary, I am
an officer at the San Francisco Elks Lodge and volunteer my time
helping veterans, underprivileged children and other charitable
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am really good at reading other people. At picking just the right
wine for a particular meal. I am good at keeping other people
motivated and helping them reach the next level. I am good at
cooking. I mean I really like to cook. And my meals are delicious.
I am good at thinking of others, probably to a fault. I am good at
acknowledging my weaknesses and leveraging my strengths. I seem to
be pretty lucky and tend to win games, find parking, get jobs, and
find money quite a bit ([knock on wood] Thank you Luck Gods!). I am
a pretty good singer (with a good range too!) and enjoy singing
karaoke, especially after a whiskey or two.
I've been told I'm a good kisser. I am a better lover than a
fighter. I am too smart for my own good. I am pretty clever and
love to figure things out. I'm not very good at getting my profile
up to 1000 words. That's a lot of words!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I am almost always wearing a great big smile, bright blue eyes
and how smart and handsome I am (or at least that's what my Mom
always told me ;-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love to go to live plays, musicals, symphonies or bands. There is
just something that touches your soul when you see some people
perform right in front of you. I really like going out and
listening to local bands.
Not so long ago, my days had lots of extra time in them and I would
get a lot of recreational reading done. I could speed through a
Grisham novel in a day or two. Now, my reading has been relegated
to mostly research or learning associated with my job and/or
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Six things I could never do without would be:
2. My computer
3. My internet connection
4. My mind
5. My sense of humor
6. The love of a beautiful woman [awww, I made myself sad :-(]
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I've been spending a lot of time thinking about how to ensure my
financial independence by setting up a sales and marketing machine
that earns money, even if I'm not there running my startup. If the
processes, procedures, leads and culture are all setup, a company
can execute without the need for me to be there on a daily basis.
Who knows if that's possible but it doesn't hurt to dream!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
having a good time. No matter what.
Ok, really I'm either going out to a live show, catching up with
friends over a beer or relaxing at home. I think it's fun to go
weekend camping, leaving after work on Friday and setting up camp
in the dark. I like a good challenge!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Clowns and spiders freak me out a little. Not individually, just
when seen together. Weird.
