Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi I'm Tim. A native Floridian.
In a nutshell, I am a bit of a contradiction. My hardcore interests
and passions lie in science and technology, and solving tough
problems. I spend the rest of my time organizing ways to break
myself out of my introverted tendencies by exploring, traveling,
and meeting new people. I love to learn, and spread the knowledge
around by teaching others. I'm a bit of a goofball with a dry sense
Defining moment 1: Realizing, during my short career in finance,
that greed and lots of moneyyy doesn't lead to happiness.
Defining moment 2: Realizing, at the top of Mt. Fuji when my friend
and I had a good chance of dying in the middle of a lighting storm,
that I've been really lucky in life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am working at a small tech startup in health care. I was always
interested in improving the state-of-the-art in medicine while I
was in school. I'm spending my free time tutoring/volunteering,
aside from the usual (travel, cook, gym, read, etc). I also usually
have one or two nerdy projects going on in the background.
Having recently moved to SF, it would be great to spend some time
getting to know the city with someone else. Keen to do some hiking,
running, biking, or scoping-out some weird beer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Puns. I think a small part of my brain is dedicated to finding
- Fixing things. Anything. I'd just rather fix it than throw it
- Finding slick travel deals.
- Sending glitter in the mail. It's actually easier than you might
- Seeing that rolling thing roll off the counter top out of the
corner of your eye and catching it midair without letting it hit
the ground. Like Spiderman.

Books: Bradbury, Vonnegut, Rand are a few of my favorite authors.
Classic novels and science fiction.
Most recent reads: The Martian by Weir and The Hitchhiker's Guide
to the Galaxy. I'll read almost anything though.
Movies: >= 90% on RottenTomatoes generally. In particular,
Christopher Nolan and Wes Anderson films. And The Big
TV: Sherlock, House of Cards, and Cosmos are really ace programs.
Also Adventure Time is great when you need an 11 minute
Food: Vegetarian although I'll eat fish. I'm a voracious
producer/consumer of other-worldy lasagnes.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My Sonicare toothbrush.
Rick Steves' audio tours.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how people think and what motivates them. Also, why I have so many
unpaired socks? I have a bag called "sock purgatory" and have yet
to decide if "sock hell" is in the trash or on my foot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
exhausted and occasionally bibulous. I don't see the point of
raging till the wee hours. I'd rather wake up early-ish and make
the most of the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I had trouble with basic can opener operation once. I'm an

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-You have a sense of humor.
-You take care of yourself.
-You aren't all that and a bag of potato chips.
-After we both establish that the other isn't a sociopath, you are
willing to eventually meet up for a drink and mind meld. An
overpriced coffee would be cool.
