Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm nerdy, awkward, and apparently quite adorable. I love
learning and teaching. I find information addicting and can easily
get sucked into an interesting book or web page. I prefer to hang
out with smart people who can teach me things.
I'm shy in new situations and around new people. In the past I
put my foot in my mouth a lot. Now I prefer to listen and watch
until I'm more comfortable. I enjoy spending time with small groups
of friends. I'm strongly in favor of cuddling. I'm loyal to my
close friends and would like more friends to share adventures with.
I enjoy cooking for people.
I am somewhat of a contradiction. By day I appear to be a naive
and driven software engineer. At night I hang out with wonderful
people with various hair colors, piercings, tattoos, and delightful
perversions. I'm happy that they accept me even though I wear
button down shirts sometimes.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My two primary passions are learning
and computer science
. I've got this
crazy job where I get to travel, teach people about computers, and
build impractical things. I'm still pretty amazed that they pay
For fun I ski, knit, cook, read, and explore restaurants, zoos, and
museums. I recently found a form of exercise I really enjoy and
that has been taking up a couple evenings a week.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a pretty good cook and I like cooking for people. I play a
couple instruments, and can pick out simple melodies on many
others. I'm also pretty good at all that school stuff like math,
science, and history.
I'm not so good at things that require physical coordination,
talking on the phone, or being charming and amusing in a room full

My height. After that it depends on the context. Sometimes its my
eyes. Sometimes its my brains. Sometimes its the company I keep or
the expression on my face.

I love Walt Whitman and enjoy most poetry. Recently I've enjoyed

The Millennium Trilogy, Surely You're Joking Mr Feynman, and The
My taste in music ranges from classic rock (Eagles, Pink Floyd) to
classical (Mozart, Beethoven,[Saint Saens, Liszt) to rock (Pixies,
We Are Scientists). I've met little music I actually dislike but
equally little that I'm in a raging passion about. I enjoy live
performances and playing music more than recordings.
I enjoy eating curry, pasta, swiss food, homemade soups, and most
sea creatures. No octopuses since someone convinced me to stop
eating intelligent animals.

Bonus item for fall and winter: a knit beanie. I'm rarely without a
hat once the rain starts.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My brain rarely shuts up. Its constantly pondering and making
connections about things I see, hear, and feel. I spend a lot of
time thinking about learning and how humans and animals construct
knowledge. I think about computers and code and how to teach
computers to learn.
When my mind is less philisophical I think about news, politics, food, sex, and friends.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday night is usually a mellow date night: food, TV, and
