Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Stanford grad, lived and worked in SF>NYC>SF>Texas>SF.
Just moved to LA in mid Dec from the Bay Area. Totally, brand
spankin' new to SoCal.
I'm a little bit of a mess of contradictions. On one hand, I'm well
educated and career oriented, while on the other hand, I have this
itch to question rules, trace—and perhaps cross—boundaries, and be
harmlessly irresponsible. I have a fairly boisterous inner child
who needs to entertain himself through sarcasm, playful banter, and
I'm looking for something meaningful, and I'm putting in the giant
effort of writing this online profile to find it. I don't have a
checklist when I date, but I generally appreciate people who have
lived enough life to have an empirical understanding of themselves
and what they want.
I generally enjoy friends, food, video games, movies, laughter,
road trips, soaking up the sun at the beach, and hiking beautiful
places. I spend a lot of my nights drinking scotch while chilling
in the jacuzzi.

Having just relocated to LA, I'm currently figuring out where to

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: A Beautiful Mind, Shawshank Redemption, American History X,
and pretty much every Pixar film. My taste correlates pretty
strongly with Rotten Tomatos haha.
TV shows: I haven't owned a TV or cable in 11 years, but I watch a
lot of shows on my computer. Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, and
Blacklist on the drama side. The rest are funny: Office, Parks
& Rec, Archer, Workaholics, South Park, RIP Stewart/Colbert,
etc. I also have a thing for competitive cooking shows, from the
trashy Hell's Kitchen to Top Chef and Chopped.
Books: I'm a big fan of YA fiction and Sci Fi. His Dark Materials
comes to mind.
Music: Lots of different stuff here. I grew up listening to
goth/black/death metal before graduating to trip hop, lyrical hip
hop, and angsty feminist music in college. These days I've tried
EDM, post-hardcore, and a bunch of other stuff that my roomie puts
on cuz she's a music hipster. My latest "favorite song" is Lana Del
Rey's Gods & Monsters.
Food: I'm a fatty.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I used to think a lot about:
If I were king, what kind of legal/constitutional framework would I
create and how would my country turn out under it.
What life would be like if I were a spy for the CIA?
Now I often think about:
I wonder how many hours of sleep I can get away with tonight?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
