My self-summary
Hey there. I'm Matt. I'm new to the Chicago area. I just moved out here in September for a job in sports analytics (much easier to explain in person). Before that I taught Math in the Philadelphia School District. I'm definitely enjoying Chicago so far and am looking forward to exploring more stuff in the city.

Also when I was little I was a contestant on Nickelodeon's GUTS. There is actually a piece of the agro crag at my house.

Ok, the GUTS part is a lie...but the rest is all true
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working as a Data Analyst for a company that deals with sports statistical stuff. I spend most of my day working with NFL and NBA data that we send to teams/ creating equations that model win probabilities for various sports (not gambling related... but that's the question I'm asked most when I tell people my job.) I'm a huge sports fan and a big statistics guy, and I've been really happy with my job so far.
I’m really good at
Math, board games, Seinfeld trivia.
The first things people usually notice about me
My rugged masculinity...
No, not really. Probably my blue eyes.

Either that or my insulin pump
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything by Chuck Klosterman or Malcolm Gladwell, Bill Simmons' Book of Basketball.

Movies: Almost Famous, Being John Malkovich, Half Nelson, Pulp Fiction, Prognosis Negative, 30 for 30s, lots of other stuff.

Shows: Seinfeld, The Wire, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Louie, Parks and Rec, The Simpsons, The Americans, Friday Night Lights, Game of Thrones.

Music: Arcade Fire, The National, Radiohead, The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, Miles Davis, Mouserat, Broken Social Scene, The War on Drugs... way too many to name.

For some reason me and a friend decided that we are going to go through all of the albums on the Rolling Stone magazine top 500 albums list (over like the next two years...) So that's taking up most of my listening at the moment.

Food: Lots of stuff. I'm pretty open to trying new foods. I like to eat a lot of Sushi. If I had to chose a place for my last meal I'd probably go to Fogo de Chao.
The six things I could never do without
I'm terrible at answering these types of questions, but here goes nothing.
1) Friends/Family
2) Music. I play some guitar and I try to catch live shows as often as possible.
3) Philadelphia sports teams (from the South Jersey/Philly area originally.)
4) Craft Beer. I'm a big IPA guy. I've done a decent amount of home brewing and am excited to be trying new beers in Chicago.
5) My insulin pump... I have Type 1 Diabetes
6) The Grantland website... I know it probably seems ridiculous to put a website on this list, but I feel like I partially owe my current job to things I learned here.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All of the bars and restaurants in Chicago I need to go to. Hypothetical sports trades. Fake band names. Places to travel. Fake ideas for movies or tv shows
On a typical Friday night I am
It depends. Probably having some drinks with friends. Maybe at a concert or sporting event.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was four years old a lion peed on me at the zoo.... I know that probably sounds impossible, but my Mom will back up the story.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 23–30
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You think guys with beards and insulin pumps are sexy.

You acknowledge that, while No Scrubs and Waterfalls are both amazing songs, clearly Creep is the best song TLC ever wrote.
