Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm probably best summed up by the things on my desk. Guitar picks,
video camera, twenty-sided dice, a copy of Eunoia (Awkward grammar
appals a craftsman. A Dadabard as daft as Tzara damns stagnant
art...), a piranha plant Christmas ornament, and a pile of sound
and computer gear. And a small mountain of buttons from my charity
In short I'm some manner of musical gaming dorky creature. I like
old books, karaoke, and talks that go late into the night.
Also, I have a large desk.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I make things. During the day I do social media and internet things
for a local nonprofit, and in my spare time I blog, make videos,
write music, volunteer, run a charity event, and tutor a bit.
I remind myself not to blather. If you're particularly curious,
I have a

I'm a pretty good juggler, a passable writer, and I'm good at games
in the sense that after many many years I've learned how to lose
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This used to say that the first thing people notice is that I tend
to talk to myself, but after consultation, that's not it. The first
thing people notice is my energy. I'm usually animated, talking
about something, coming up with new ideas, being funny, or just
hustling from place to place with a spring in my step.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
After six years of reading analytic philosophy, I'm just beginning
to fall in love with fiction again. I love classical novels about
the human condition, old school fantasy and the more contemporary
urban variety, and hard science fiction. I also love non-fiction
books about anything, though lately my preferences run to
neuroscience and physics. I also love comics, and devour graphic
novels at a ridiculous rate, though I'm a few years behind.
I've watched a lot of movies, but if I had to pick a favourite, I'd
have to go with Singing in the Rain. It never gets old. Past that,
I like movies that make me feel real feelings, like Up or The Royal
Tenenbaums, and movies that mess with my head, like V for Vendetta,
Videodrome or Wristcutters.
I don't watch a lot of television, but I really enjoyed Babylon 5
and the West Wing. My favourite show is still probably Bill Nye the
Science Guy, though.
Music...I follow a lot of Youtube artists like Nice Peter and
George Watsky, because I love getting to know the person as well as
the music. My tastes are eclectic, from everything from hip-hop, to
metal, to classical. It mostly depends on my mood.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My vital organs. They're vital for a reason, but I'm going to count
them as one thing. Food, water, shelter... Friends aren't things,
but I could never do without them. Games, and my guitar. Though if
I had all the others, I could do without the last two in a pinch.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to pull people together on strange ideas, from Henching for
Good, a scheme to bring people together to volunteer where they're
needed, to a Conspiracy of Accomplishment, which is a way of
getting things done that I'm testing. Or I'm thinking about my next

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either out at an event, like a gallery opening or a talk; at home
working on music, writing, charity projects or a video; having
dinner or coffee with friends; or unabashedly procrastinating.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm pretty much an open book, I think.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're interested in games, being social, community events, or
other nerdy things.
You should message me if you're not perfect, if you talk when you
should listen sometimes, or let your thoughts wander. If you sing
for the sake of singing. If your imperfections make you stronger.
