Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a pretty average guy I think. I avoid conflict, and try to
maintain a generally calm outlook on life. I doubt anyone would
describe me as an exciting person to meet. Although my profile
lists me as single, I am in fact separated from my wife, and have
been for about 8 years. Not divorced for financial/medical
insurance reasons, we are now just friends, just went in different
directions. I would have listed separated, but it is not an option.
I am single except for the paper work. I grew up in Australia, and
moved to Silicon Valley in 1985. My only regret is not moving
sooner. I really love the high tech environment.
As a born again technologist, I think a good match would be someone
who is also strongly rooted in a technological career path, and
really enjoys it.
OkCupid doesn't have an easy way to add key words to a profile, so
let me just note the following:
Things I'm not into (If you are, great, but I won't be up for
sharing the experience)
Walks on the beach
Being away from the internet
Working out (No six-pack abs. I am now a fairly trim 150 lb, down
from 200 lb a year ago.)
Things I'm into
Trying new restaurants
Technology events (recently, the Maker Faire and RoboGames)
Mentoring (such as the high school First Competition)
While I am not a couch potato, I do have some TV preferences
Jon Stewart, Steven Colbert
NCIS, Chaos, Person of Interest
Some SciFi: Lexx, B5, FireFly
I have thought about becoming a volunteer at the Computer history
museum, but it hasn't happened yet.
If this interests you, but need some clarification, let me know,
and I'll see what I can do.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have been a workaholic in the past, but am trying to change (it's
about time). I worked for several large companies here, then became
a consultant. While reasonably successful, I kind of burnt out, so
I decided to take a 6 month sabbatical, and refresh. That was 2
years ago, and I haven't done consulting since. Instead I am
inventing a product, that I hope will be successful.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Computers, Technology, Problem solving. Listening.
I'm also really into making things, see "Maker Faire" for example.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Most of my reading is either technical, or SciFi. My movie
preference runs strongly to SciFi, and far away from horror and
chick-flicks. I like action/adventure too.
I eat out a fair bit and like most styles.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Google, The Internet, Honesty, and three more
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Technology, computers, electronics, geek stuff, and how OKCupid
comes up with its match scores.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Not currently doing anything special. That's why I am on this site
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't talk about private things publicly.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Please message me if you find my profile interesting. I figure that
women probably get flooded with messages, and any initial message I
send will probably get lost in the noise. Or maybe I am just too
shy. So please message me if interested, I'll always reply.
