Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Right now I work as a jack of all trades in technology - a
consultant/developer/project manager/sales engineer - and get to
jet around to random cities where I stay at mediocre hotels and eat
at moderately priced restaurants.
I work from home, which is awesome since not having to drive to and
from an office gives me a lot of flexibility to pursue other
interests - things like biking, hockey, and teasing my roommate's
One day, I want to build a log cabin. And possibly have a small
herd of buffalo. Are there any laws in Seattle against owning
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've gotten into running and triathlons. Which is odd, because I
like water when it's ice but I'm not a big fan of swimming. I'm
worried that being healthy will be the death of me.
Biking, though. That's where it's at. Saturdays during the summer,
you'll find me on the Burke, circling Lake Washington, or getting
lost in the Snoqualmie Valley.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Engineering stuff. I grew up with parents who saw sons as a means
of cheap labor. I got a lot of experience with building decks and
other wooden structures, home maintenance, yard work and
landscaping, keeping my 1990 Ford Aerostar running, and painting
the basement as "good character building".
I also make awesome banana bread.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Facial hair. People notice that pretty quickly since it covers a
portion of my face. Rule of thumb: When things are on your face,
people notice them.
Oh, and Yes, I washed my face. I just have a gnarly scar over my
eye. Or, as my buddy put it when he saw the addition, "That thing
is fucking metal".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Mere Christianity, The Iliad, A Song of Ice and Fire (Game
of Thrones), anything Bradbury or Asimov. The Paradox of Choice,
the Enders Game series
Music: Mainly classic rock (Bob Seger, The Who, and Zeppelin at top
of list). But I'm open to almost anything - Chromeo, Black Keys,
Don Giovanni, Phish, and the PNB were my October shows.
Movies and shows: I just got into Fringe. Also, The Lego Movie.
It's like Toy Story for engineers.
Meat. Lots of meat. Grilled, braised, smoked. Loaded onto nachos,
solo, or wrapped up in a burrito like a meat tornado.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music and the genius of Bob Seger. Against the Wind is likely the
best song ever written.
Hockey. And the hope that one day Seattle will get an NHL
My Dad's advice.
Freedom. The joy of deciding that you have free time / a little
extra cash and you're going to a concert or camping that
Vernors. Canada Dry can't hold a candle to it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Will Jim Harbough be worth the salary he's going to get at
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working out, grabbing a drink with friends, concert, or taking an
early night if it's been a week of travel. I think as I've gotten
older, my Friday nights have started to look the same as the rest
of my nights (and vice versa). Not a bad thing, but getting wasted
or staying out too late makes Saturday morning bootcamp a special
kind of Hell.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
