Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I once played a Norse God in a play. The fake beard was itchy as
hell, but I sacrificed myself for my art.
I am an educated geek that recently relocated to the bay area from
NYC. Originally I hail from Europe but I have been moving about in
the US for quite some time now. I bet you can't place my accent,
but I won't be offended if you get it wrong.
I have traveled more than most, which mostly involves getting lost
quite a lot. Ever tried finding your way home in Bejing's hutongs
My brain is a sponge and I feed it regularly. This manifests itself
both in a large book collection and a fondness for useful and
useless trivia alike. A favorite Thursday pastime is trivia night.
Trust me, you want me on your team.
I indulge my geeky side (or is it nerdy? I never got the
difference) by being very opinionated about obscure topics and by
sprinkling my conversations with copious references to movies,
books and greek philosophy. I'll be more than happy to explain them
if you ask.
Anyway, welcome to my page. If you want to message me but you can't
think of an opener, ask me about the time I almost got married in
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My life is like a Russian novel: Too many characters, not enough
Work wise, I am in software. More specifically I am in research,
this means that I spend my days staring at a white board feeling
stupid just waiting for that one heureka! moment where it
all makes sense. I am definitely a better person to be around on
the heureka days.
When not working, I try to diversify. I recently started learning
japanese and I am gearing up to start some kind of climbing soon.
One of my all time favorite activities is riding my bike, nothing
clears a cloudy mind than solid bike ride. I recently lost my bike
to some rascally rascals (always remember your locks people!), so
now I have to acquire a new one. A big life decision for sure.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Whistling a jaunty tune, nothing beats walking and whistling.
On a more serious note: I've lived a great many places and met many
different kinds of people so I like to think that I am good at
putting myself in other people's shoes.
Also, I can beat you at any trivia game, any time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The first book I ever read on my own was The
Neverending Story and ever since then I have loved Fantasy tales. I
love A Song of Ice and Fire and the TV-show is great too. I do try
to branch out once in a while and I have been on a Murakami binge
recently. "The Windup Bird Chronicles" blew my mind.
Movies: I am not good at discovering new movies, I have a
tendency to just fall back to a small set of films that I know are
great. Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Lost in Translation and The
Big Lebowski are some examples. For a long while I resented The
Neverending Story (the film) because it deviates quite far from the
book, but I have grown to love it. Cruising the bay area on Falcor
is a big dream of mine.
Tv Shows: The first girl I ever had a crush on was Willow
from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I have since then learned to direct
my affections at women who are not lesbian and not fictional, but
the show still has a special place in my heart. I am a huge West
Wing fan, and I have a hard time deciding if I like it or The
Food: I have penchant for Thai and other south asian dishes.
My spice tolerance is low though, which presents some problems.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My awesome friends
On a typical Friday night I am

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have seen every single episode of Dawson's Creek.
