Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a liberal, skeptical nerdy non-believer with an optimistic
streak, a voracious reader, a sometimes writer, a frequent dreamer
and a relentless optimist. I'm the one friends call when they need
to vent, be cheered up or just need a voice of reason to help sort
out a problem.
I love science and learning and anything to do with space. Yes, I
was glued to the TV when the Curiosity rover landed on Mars. At
museums and zoos, I stop and read all the little informational
plaques. I've been reading a lot about the technological
singularity lately and thoroughly enjoyed the new Cosmos so I've
become a fan of Ray Kurzweil and Neil DeGrasse Tyson both. I like
to hike and mess about outdoors, but don't do enough of it. My love
of computers and art pull me in a tug of war which is why I do what
I do (computer graphics). I like to cook on occasion (and recently
have been experimenting with recipes from the Game of Thrones
cookbook). I love movies and I've got far too much useless movie
trivia in my head. My friends tell me I have the patience of a
glacier and a work ethic they envy. I may work hard, but will also
drop everything to go hang out with a friend.
I don't drink - nothing against it, I just have never liked the
taste. Most of my friends drink though and they've often benefited
from me being their "automatic designated driver".
I can quote most of the great geek movies out there. I love Douglas
Adams' books, am a huge Firefly fan, can recognize Froud's artwork
at a glance and as far as I'm concerned George R. R. Martin is a
god. I'm a writer and story teller at heart. I love good riddles,
obscure words, interesting trivia and a well-crafted sentence.
Beyond writing, I adore film, animation and visual effects... so
much so that I do computer graphics professionally.
I eat right, exercise regularly and take care of myself and am
looking for someone who does the same. Life is good... I'm just
looking for someone to share it with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm usually working on a local indie film with friends, learning
something, writing something, tinkering in the kitchen and reading
a book. Things come and go, but this is a fairly typical list.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
keeping friends for decades, being optimistic, setting goals and
occasionally achieving them, creativity... I've also been told that
I make the world's best grilled cheese sandwich.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies - I absolutely love movies and have a great memory for
totally useless movie trivia. I have dozens of favorites ranging
all over from Forrest Gump to Avatar to Love Actually. I could
maybe narrow it down to my top 50.
Books - I love to read and am typically in the middle of several
books. I can't seem to leave a bookstore without a new book. I
recently started reading the Game of Thrones series and I
absolutely love it. A friend gave me his copy of Game of Thrones
about 10 years ago. I regret that I didn't start reading it
Music - 30 Seconds to Mars, Sigur Ros, Maroon 5, Daft Punk, Angels
& Airwaves, Imogen Heap, Smashing Pumpkins, Counting Crows, Owl
City, My Chemical Romance, Dave Matthews, M83 and a couple hundred
TV- Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Big Bang Theory, Firefly, How I
Met Your Mother, Daily Show, 30 Rock and others. And a friend is
trying to get me into Breaking Bad. I'm sure I'll love it just as
soon as I can find the time.
Food - Everything's good except Mexican food. (Yeah, yeah, I know,
I'm in the minority on that one). I tend to like Italian and French
cooking. I'm also cooking more these days and loving it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Creativity and artistic expression
The scientific method
Opening night at a big movie with friends
Great conversation that ranges all over and goes til 2 am
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think I daydream more than most. I blame the writer in me for
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
