Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I had never heard anyone use the phrase "dig out" in reference to
something you had to do to a vehicle before moving to Boston (I
can't believe it is already that time of the year). I really like
that Boston is a city with a lot of history and culture that also
has a thriving tech and live music scene.
Since college, I've worked pretty hard to improve my fitness level.
I just finished the Couch to 5k program a week early, something I
wouldn't have thought possible even six months ago. All that
running helps balance out my indoor hobbies like board games, video
games, and catching up on my favorite TV series.
An ideal weekend with my SO might include making rustic hearth
baked pizza together, cuddling and massage, sailing on the Charles,
playing some co-op video games (Portal 2, Super Mario World U), or
hosting a board game night for a few close friends.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I really like the people I work with at a very, very quirky
company. (Ask me about the furries.) The work is challenging and a
lot of my job is to learn new things on a regular basis, which is

for 8 years. I'm coming to a New Hampshire bunny slope near you

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Convincing your parents that you have excellent taste in men.
Airing up all four tires on the first dollar.
Introducing people to new and exotic tabletop games, board games

Baking artisan bread and pizza (pic related).

Help your potential matches find common interests.
Cory Doctorow, Patrick Rothfuss, Jim Butcher, J.R.R. Tolkien
The Big Lebowski, Brazil, Wall-E, Pulp Fiction... emergent theme:
dystopian future movies or movies that say fuck a lot.
Game of Thrones, Louie, Arrested Development, Downton Abbey (The
dowager countess is the BEST), and Archer.
Prog rock, funky things, people from the internet that make
. I also own 36 GB of video game music
that I will share if you ask nicely. I have an
extensive tourfilter list set up and try to go to concerts whenever
I can get tickets.
I'm really into stand-up comedy these days. I just saw Hannibal
Buress and Mike Birbiglia. I would love to see Louis C.K. the next
time he is through town. I like to go to the Comedy Studio.
Italian anything and buffalo EVERYTHING.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family and friends, my strong support network
Smartphone, Android 4G with Netflix? Done.
Media Server, for everything I can't live without, including my
family's geneology website.
Comfortable shoes, like my New Balance 990s.
My kindle, which makes time on the T bearable.
My Steam Account, and all the great PC games out there.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How do things work? How did we think that thing worked before we
figured it out? I can often be found doing a Wikipedia dive about
something that interests me or peering into an open access panel.
Ever seen what the inside of a Redbox looks like? (no little man!)
Or a Furby? (slightly terrifying!)
Which new Kickstarter projects are worth backing. So far, I've
helped crowdfund new music, movies, board games, video games, and
books. Are there any promising Kickstarters that you helped fund or
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I alternate between celebrating the end of the work week by
relaxing and ordering some sort of takeout and going all out with
some sort of new recipe. My most recent experiment was a
from-scratch caramel sauce made by turning a crock pot into a
double-boiler. That one turned into a whole-weekend endeavor.
Or, I might be meeting you for dinner :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I use Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner. It seems to work
better, and I actually kinda like the smell.
