Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a recent grad from the University of Wisconsin, with degrees in
Computer Science and Computer Engineering. I loved my degrees, but
I've always been a bit of a history geek. There's really very
little that doesn't interest me, and I really liked school and
definitely would like to go back (in a few years).
While an undergrad I started a company that provides an IT
infrastructure for restaurants. We help restaurants create an
online presence for themselves and accept orders online. I love
what I do; we 1000+ small businesses grow their business online. As
we've grown as a company, I've enjoyed the new challenges along the
way. I'm one who enjoys new puzzles as they present themselves, and
it's rewarding to see our progress all while enjoying the upside of
building local business.
Outside of work, I'm trying to keep each day as interesting as
possible. The post college transition has taken some getting used
to, and more than anything I want to keep every moment unique and
fun. I'm always working on new hobbies (I've been a runner since
high school, I play guitar (not that well!), I'm TRYING standup in
a week, and I'm interested in getting more active in the Madison
volunteering community). I really value spontaneity and try to set
myself up for new experiences.
I'm always excited to make new friends :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm not sure what I want to be when I grow up.
Right now I dedicate a lot of my time to growing my job. Work
doesn't feel like work because it is truly a labor of love. It's
given me a cool perspective about creating something from scratch,
and has given me life experiences I never would have imagined
After this, who knows... I might go back to school, switch my
career area or city, or go right back into another startup. I want
to live an interesting life.
In that spirit, I'm looking for some great friends along the way.
I'm very fortunate to have some of the world's awesomest friends,
and I'm always excited to meet new folks to share this journey
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a pretty funny/likable guy. I have a comedy video on Youtube
with over 500k views back from the days before Gangam Style had a
billion views (2007). I'm a good friend, a good listener, a fun
person to be around, and in general make life more enjoyable for
the people I care about.
Back in high school, I was a part of a state champion cross country
team (although I have to admit, I'm not in that kind of shape
today). I'm an Eagle Scout and take giving back to the community
seriously. I did a couple years of collegiate choir.
Things I'm not as good at (but would love to get better at)
- Dancing (it's painful to watch)
- Cooking (this one I actually want to work on)
- Foreign languages (I think it's the coolest skill in the world
but it never clicked for me)
- Rapping (hint: Youtube video)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a pretty high energy guy.

You're interested in making a new friend. Post college has been a
transition for me; I miss organically meeting new people all the
time. I'm interested in meeting people I have commonality with, but
at the same time I enjoy meeting people with different views,
opinions, and senses of humor!
