Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello, I'm originally from Chicago and have been in Austin for
three years...it's a nice town and has really grown on me.
I like conversation. I like to talk about books, movies, news, you
name it. Actually...I *love* conversation. I think having a nice
chat over coffee is just about the best way to spend time.
I think smart girls rock. Smart = sexy for me.
Oh- I'm allergic to cats...its not that I *dislike* them so much.
To be honest, I'm not really a pet person. It seems everyone in
Austin is though.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I enjoy art. I have some wonderful computer generated art books
that I keep around to "feed the soul" so to speak. That's a line
taken from of a holy book..."If I had two loaves of bread I would
sell one and buy hyacinths, for they would feed my soul." Isn't
that the coolest sentiment?
I enjoy learning. I hope you do too.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Coming up with bad jokes.
Putting my foot in my mouth.
Holding an interesting conversation.
Over analyzing situations.
Delivering a comeback with just the right amount of douche-ness to
make you laugh(most of the time).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall, maybe thats it?
It might possibly be my bad jokes.
It's definitely the bad jokes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - Ok, so I'm a big Books-on-tape guy b/c I used to have a
long commute. Stranger in a Strange Land, The entire Master &
Commander series by Patrick O'Brian. Atlas Shrugged. The Sun Also
Rises. Kitchen Confidential. A friend recommended "Freedom"...I
didn't think it was so great. *shrug* I didn't get what all the
talk was about...did i miss something?
Movies - Hmmm...Do Pixar shorts count? The short "Boundin' " always
puts in a good mood. "Joe Vs. The Volcano". "You Got Mail" (its a
chick-flick I know...) UHF . Clerks, Trust, Unbelievable Truth,
just about **anything** w/ Parker Posey. Mrs Parker & the
Vicious Circle. Many of the Cohen bros films...but I haven't seen
So many others.
TV: Newsroom, Game of Thrones, Modern Family, Newsradio, Mad Men,
Friends (yes, I still love it), Boardwalk Empire..etc... oh, and
New Girl...what a great show!
Dr.Who -- huge fan. Have been since I was 8. If you are..we should
definitely talk. :) Most Sci-fi shows are hit w/ me. Star Trek,
Farscape, etc. I never got into Stargate but I'd be willing to give
it another shot. Babylon 5 was a killer show too.
Music: I wont say that I like *all kinds*... but i find that there
is some song in every genre that i do like. If given a choice I
always for alternative/punk type music. I like music with a message
or a story...I dont much care for vapid lyrics that just cycle over
and over... I dont understand the draw. That said, I have found
that vapid lyrics with a fast tempo makes for great work out music.
Food - Indian, Thai, Middle eastern.
Really Spicy = Great!!
KILL YOUR TASTE BUDS = Ecstasy !!!
I love coffee & hot chocolate..but not together. :)
(I'm serious about the Dr. Who thing...really.)

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
General stuff... religion, people, conversations I've had. I
ruminate a lot.
How to make my profile better...if you have suggestions... I'm
Lately...I've been thinking about what drives and motivates people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Lately I've been heading out for either drinks. I like to goto a
couple of karekoe bars up in North Austin. There is something about
strangers ruining the music of my youth that just says "good times"
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
While talking to my brother on the phone I started going through my
coat pockets looking for...you guessed it...my phone. *sigh*...yep.
