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
• I dropped out of high school and started working at startup
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
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!

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.
