My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an unrepentant nerd. I've never lost the urge to learn everything about everything, and everyone, all at once. I'm a jack of all trades, master of some, with more to come.

I've never lived in one location for more than a couple of years so it's hard to pinpoint something that feels like a "home town". The irrefutable facts are: I was born in New Hampshire, have lived in every New England state, and have spent more time on the East Coast than the West Coast, but every where I've lived has felt like home in its own way. Except for Florida. Fuck Florida.

And since these are really important to some of you this in the interest of saving time:
• I'm divorced. I'm fairly open about it, but it's in the past.
• I dropped out of high school and started working at startup called LiveJournal.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a software engineer by trade and an avid musician otherwise. Basically I'm a functional insomniac that likes to geek out on various types of keyboards.

I currently consult for Sony, helping build the Playstation Store.

I'm also a big DIY hobbyist. Metalworking, woodworking, furniture making, painting, sewing, etc. I'm always excited to try new things, learn, and meet new people!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
▸ Listening. I tend to let people keep talking and I absorb their stories. Get a few drinks in me though and I'll probably never shut the fuck up.
▸ Fixing things. Bugs, electronics, cars, houses, emotions, dreams, etc. Nothing broken can't be mended.
▸ Cooking If it wasn't for the internet I might've become a short order cook. I've been known to solo cook Thanksgiving feasts (for families that weren't even mine) Lately I am trying to master indian cuisine, cardamom is tricky!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
▸ Books: A Wrinkle in Time, The Age of Spiritual Machines, His Dark Materials. Love science-fiction novels of all sorts.
▸ Movies: Waking Life, Lila Dit Ca, Stay, Snowpiercer. Way too many to name only a few as favorites.
▸ Music: Disclosure, Woolf and The Wondershow, Burial, Until The Ribbon Breaks. Current heavy rotation.
▸ Shows: Orphan Black, Broad City, Black Mirror, Rectify, Party Down. Loving how great TV has gotten lately.
▸ Food: Caribbean, French, Mexican. Can't make do without jerked chicken!

You didn't ask for these but I'm giving you them anyways:

▸ Muppets: BEAKER, Animal
▸ HTML Tag: Marquee!
▸ 15 second long Youtube Video: !!!
▸ Emotion: Quixotic
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Being curious about everything, observing the natural absurdity of life, waking up in the morning with my dog sleeping on my legs, thunderstorms, heady conversations that last until exactly 5 AM and force you to decide whether you want to get a couple of hours of sleep or just power through the rest of the day.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Composition, sine waves, color theory, the singularity, user interface design, simplification, equality, anachronisms, failed startups, living on a tropical beach.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working, hanging out, drunk, asleep. Sometimes in that order.

Atypical Friday nights include singing in the shower while presuming to be alone but really your roommate has invited a bunch of people over. That's happened exactly once. ONCE.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get irrationally upset when I see someone drink coffee on TV and the cup is clearly empty.

^ Also that shower story.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Only if you can handle your vices and can treat others with respect. If you have goals that are important to you that you're actively working towards, that's fucking awesome and I want to get to know you. You should also be okay with sarcasm and vulgar language.

You should definitely message me if you want to tell me all about your favorite band, especially if they're really obscure, or you just made them up and want to see if I can call you out on it.

Or you love video games. Why the hate?

Or you've gone through some shit and have come out all the better for it; fitter, happier, more productive.

Or you want to introduce a newbie to your favorite hobby.

Or you want to forego the usual and just want to grab a drink somewhere.
