Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to relax and enjoy the adventurous side of life, but I tend
to take the important things pretty seriously. I'm the sort of
person who likes to have their ducks in a row, but I don't loose
sleep when one or two of them gets out of line. While I'm always up
for spending time with my friends, I enjoy and need some alone
time. I'm a little nerdy, but not excessively uptight or too
socially awkward (I hope!). I really like to make jokes, and I have
a dry/sarcastic sense of humor. I'm better at watching sports than
playing them (though it never stops me from trying) . I'm in fairly
good shape and I like to be outside mountain biking, trout fishing,
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently graduated from grad school at Penn State, and have made
the move to Texas for a job at Texas A&M (if you're wondering
why my town is still listed as State College, it's so my students
don't find me on here!). I research tornadoes, mainly using
computer models, but I go out on storm chasing trips too.
I'm still getting the hang of being a real adult, but I'm working
on it. That being said, I don't want to grow up too fast.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
wasting time, eating good food, remembering random facts,
forgetting important ones, and drinking good beer. I've always been
good at going to school, which is probably why I never left. I also
really like maps, and I have a good sense of direction.

I tend to be a little quiet at first, but that usually disappears
after a few good conversations!

This is where the nerd in me really shines. I like good sci-fi
movies (and bad ones too!). I'm a lifelong Star Wars fan and I
really got into the harry potter books growing up. I like a lot of
other movies as well - mainly adventure/action and movies that make
you think like Inception or the Prestige. I tend to read a lot of
historical fiction and non-fiction. I like to read the classics too
- The Count of Monte Cristo, and a Tale of Two Cities are
especially good. I'm working through netflix rignt now -- but some
of my favorite TV shows are Breaking Bad, The Office, How I met
your mother, The Big Bang Theory, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec and
Dexter. My favorite band is Weezer -- I like a lot of 90s rock and
I also like some classic rock. I have a little soft spot for
classical music, and usually have that going while I'm studying or
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Coffee. Cream Cheese and a box of wheat thins. Penn State football
games. Craft Beer. My dog, Ted. Christmas.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
tornadoes, where I want to end up in 10 years, what I'm going to
eat for dinner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On weekends I typically go out with friends, either to a bar or
hanging out at someone's house. But once in a while I'm content to
sit on the couch and watch a movie or read a book. You wont find me
out at a club.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Every once in a while I catch myself singing loudly to lady gaga or
kelly clarkson songs in my car.

you, like me, are tired of trying to have an interesting
conversation with someone at a bar, but they're either too drunk to
be interesting or it's too loud to hear them. If you're up for some
stimulating conversations, going out and having a fun time on
weekends but are also satisfied with sitting on the couch with some
hot chocolate and a movie then I'm your guy.
