Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is impossible. Here we go... (all of the following crap has
been voted "way too serious" by a panel of concerned/drunk friends,
and will be updated when I get a chance): I'm a writer, adventurer,
world traveler, Princeton alum, and former soldier, as well as a
fire-breathing Democrat. I'm a hippie at heart, though I don't look
it, a sheltered suburban kid who has thrown himself headfirst into
the wilder parts of the world, and been places and done things that
most people only see in the movies... I get drunk with mercenaries
in Goma by the shores of Lake Kivu and watch them fire their AK-47s
at the stars above, I write a mediocre but catchy poem during an
exhausted break from chasing insurgents through the alleys of
Baqubah, I crash a wedding at the Rwandese Senate building by
posing as the groom's (somewhat paler) cousin... though for right
now I'm back to being a yuppie in my hometown, quietly shuffling to
and from the startup that will fund the next chapter of my life.
(NB: Having received a number of messages to the effect of "you
seem interesting but you're a weirdo who doesn't do normal stuff",
I should add that 50% of my free time is squandered playing video
games and the other 50% is spent bullshitting with my buddies, and
that one of my favorite things to do with a lady friend is just
order in some good food, watch a movie, and cuddle).
If you have made it this far in the wall of text, bravo.
I'm superficially physically fit in that the junk food and assorted
evils of my irresponsible lifestyle have not yet begun to take
their toll- perhaps they never will. I bear the mixed blessing of
the deceptive youthfulness that a preponderance of freckles
provides. I really want to learn how to be a good dancer, and have
begun to try. I'm vain enough that you'll never catch me wearing my
thick glasses outside of work... 8/24/13: AMAZING AWESOME: earlier
this summer I got Lasik surgery, preparatory to taking a
Paramilitary Goon course down at the former Blackwater (now called
"Academi" in the interest of appearing less villainous) in order to
strengthen my private military contractor resume, so no more
glasses for me.
Like everyone else, I like to think I can't really be summed up by
a few paragraphs' worth of adjectives, so contact me if you're
