Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an optimistic, trustworthy and outgoing guy, and at times, a
wee bit nerdy. I like berry picking, architecture, the outdoors,
Garrison Keillor, Trader Joe's, NPR, and cheese.
I occasionally have delayed reactions to jokes. Ok, maybe more
often than I'm willing to admit. I seem to wear blue often, even
though I really like green better. I find I'm happier when I'm
I moved to SF from Boston last summer, so I'm still finding lots of
new things in the bay area. I've done a bunch of traveling, and
occasionally make spontaneous travel decisions. I went to college
and grad school in Western Massachusetts.
I am logical, musical, and thoughtful.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working hard and playing harder.
I'm an engineer and I work at a startup in downtown sf. I really
love my job. The rest of the time, I'm likely exploring the city,
singing, playing piano, or spending time with friends. I love
seeing and performing in theater/opera. I also play pickup ultimate
when it's not too windy. Of course right now, cheering on the World

I have an eclectic taste in music: jazz standards, classical,
opera, indie, electronica, corny 80s and early 90s hip-hop
I don't really watch tv, though I like a lot of movies: shawshank
redemption, usual suspects, office space, napoleon dynamite, simon
pegg, ratatouille, stranger than fiction, eternal sunshine. Movies
with thomas newman soundtracks too. I have a netflix subscription
that I really need to make better use of.
Foods I really like: avocados, tomatoes, caramelized onions,
mustard, and cheese. I like cookies too, especially if they're used
as an ingredient. I love all cuisines; mediterranean, middle
eastern, indian, mexican, italian, east asian, and sushi are among
Being well read is not my strong suit, but I'm getting better. Last
thing I read was a conference paper, but I also like political
non-fiction, the economist, newspapers.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
intelligent, witty conversation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I should do for dinner. Work. How to get from here to there.
Family and friends.
Why things are written down, but typed up.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually some combination of: hanging out with friends, getting
dinner, at the gym, playing piano, feet up on a coffee table with a
beer in hand, or doing dishes and listening to the radio.
Just taking it easy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think tapioca pudding is awesome. Same with chocolate pudding
that has the crust on top!
I actually like grocery shopping and doing laundry.
