Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m seriously considering adding another set of bookshelves because
mine are too full.
Exercise feels great and keeps me healthy, so I run three times a
The depths of space and time capture my imagination like nothing
else; I’m fascinated by astronomy and cosmology and I’m always
curious about history as well as where we might go in the
I prefer doing things in person to participating from a distance,
whether this means going to a hockey game instead of watching on
TV, being at a concert instead of listening to music at home, or
playing a game with my friends in the same room instead of
Ultimately, the most important thing for me is to have friends that
I can share and discuss all of these experiences with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Every week, I make time to play some games with my friends. Some of
us meet every Wednesday night and play RPGs, card games, or board
games. Recently, I’ve really enjoyed Pandemic and Sentinels of the
Multiverse, but it’s hard to go wrong with Cards Against Humanity
either. After we’re done with our game, we head to the bar for
drinks, food, and time to socialize. I like to read and play lots
of different games as I’d like to design my own someday.
I really like to visit new places. Since I no longer travel with my
parents to business conferences all over the country like I did
when I was a kid, I don’t get to travel quite as much as I used to.
I’ve seen quite a bit of the U.S. and I’ve been to Canada and Costa
Rica, but I’d really like to visit Europe and Asia and experience
in person all the amazing historical sites I’ve only been able to
read about before.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning new things.
Reading, walking, and possibly even chewing gum at the same
Stringing words together to make a sentence that's both cogent and
Screaming loudly at the TV when I'm watching sports.
I'd dearly love to add snapping my fingers to this list, but that
is one skill in which my reach exceeds my grasp.

I probably have my nose in a book.

I love reading and watching sci-fi and fantasy. I've got Iain M.
Banks, Jim Butcher, George R.R. Martin, and Ursula K. LeGuin on my
shelf and out of storage right now paired with things like The Lord
of the Rings, The Departed, and Inception. I really want to buy the
methylamine barrel special edition of Breaking Bad and I'll be
depressed if the upcoming season turns out to be the end for
Manchester Orchestra is the best band making music today. If Brand
New would finally release a new album, maybe it could be a contest
again. They put on the best live show I've ever seen, but I've had
fun at Motion City Soundtrack, Gold Motel, I Can Make a Mess, and
quite a few others as well. For something a little more local, my
friends PHOX are pretty good too.
I love peppers. The rest of me sometimes disagrees. We're working
our differences out.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sitting around a table or on a couch with my friends, playing a
game or watching DVDs/Netflix. Maybe we'll order pizza; sometimes
we'll have a beer or two as well.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I was *this* close to winning the free trip to DC from the National
Geography Bee back in middle school. The slight difference between
Bering Sea and Barents Sea may haunt me forever.
