Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Just moved to Seattle from San Francisco.
I manage the software for a few large publishing sites. I'm from
Maine and I've walked to Canada.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm slowly switching from doing a lot of consulting work to doing
my own projects. I just published a photo history book of my
great-grandfather's World War I photos. I just got my f̶i̶r̶s̶t̶
I'm super busy, but I'd like to be super busy with someone else.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at making people laugh, working with computers, not
caring what people think about me, working with other people, and
explaining things. I'm trying to get better at visual design,
brewing beer and cider, and rock climbing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm outgoing and quick-witted. I am extremely demanding of
I'm a straight shooter. I'll tell you exactly what I think, and I
have a terrible poker face.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a lot of periodicals and online articles. I also like
Classic Feynman, How to Win Friends and Influence People and some
basic sci fi stuff. I'm partway through the Game of Thrones series,
loved The Martian and
Movies I love are:
If You Can
, Exit Through the Gift
, Pan's Labyrinth
, Stop Making Sense
, Spirited Away
I watch way more TV than movies, I like the bite-sized format
better. TV shows I like are generally older shows, lots of them
British. Futurama tops the list: I've seen it at least forty times
end to end, it's ridiculous. I like comedies, documentaries,
mysteries, sci fi. Some examples from my library:
, Trailer Park Boys
, Game of Thrones
Math rock, most of the "-wave" genres, chiptune and dad rock are my
jams. Sometimes throw in a little jazz too. I keep track of
albums I like here
I'm currently expanding my food tastes. I'll try just about
anything right now, as long as it's not too spicy. I LOVE
dumplings, beer, and making pasta or burgers at home.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A warm, comfortable bed
and maybe motorcycles
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Efficiency, design and process flow, what I'm going to learn next
and how to have the most fun possible.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually I'm at home working or watching a movie. Sometimes I find a
party, sometimes I go out with friends.
Let's go dancing. Let's get drunk and shout about the Internet.
Let's spit off a bridge, I don't know.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was little, I snagged some nudie postcards off a neighbor's
fridge. I didn't get in trouble for it, but I did have to give them
back. A couple years later our neighbor mailed me some postcards of
naked girls skiing, which I think I had for about ten seconds
before my mom confiscated them.
