Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Welcome! This is the part where I distill my personality into a few
paragraphs with uncanny accuracy.
I am a doer who values downtime. That means I find a lot of
satisfaction in everything form work to cooking to fixing my car,
but I tend to relax with activities that have no long-term benefit
whatsoever. Assembling pieces into solutions is a lot of fun for
me, whether it's sections of code coming together to make a program
or parts and tools fixing my bike. Then I mess around on
... but time spent with a good friend (or a new friend!) is always
the highlight of my day, and I spend a lot of my free time finding
new music, movies, and books. Human connection and art give life
meaning. Hence my profile on this site!
I try, and often fail, to balance appreciation for what I have and
ambition to improve myself, which is the best method I have of
improving the world. I work hard to improve my life, but I try to
keep in mind that eating food and sleeping indoors means I have
better fortune than many, many people.
I am completely obsessed with the Alot
. I have strong minimalist tendencies. I
once cold-called a man and sold him a roof.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
1. Inveigling computers.
2. Percussory maintenance of same.
3. Trying to figure out if I should add more things.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Meeting people. I've made a couple of good friends at bus stops.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In Japan, everyone noticed that I'm tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
If you are into books and you haven't read David Mitchell, get
Cloud Atlas or The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet immediately.
The Stranger by Camus is also worth your time. I seem to be one of
the few people who read Infinite Jest in its entirety and thought
it was ok, not great or terrible. I judge books (fiction and
nonfiction) by their ability to alter my habits of thought.
Favorite movie depends on the day. Some recent highlights include
Dredd, Forks Over Knives, and Seven Samurai. I love the Big
Some recent music favorites: Air, Caravan Palace, and Christopher
Tin. Carbon Leaf has been on my MP3 player for years without
interruption. I like listening to trance or chillout music when I
work. I am shamelessly addicted to this song
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Computers of various types
Two more things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What to think about.
To be clear, that is a serious answer.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I always get dinner with friends, and when I don't have work the
next day I go out afterwards.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm really good at counting parentheses to make sure they're all
closed (and yes, it bothers me when they aren't).
