Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Michigan-->Seattle-->SF. I enjoy swimming in Aquatic Park and
putting googly eyes on inanimate objects.
It might not work out if you're really into professional sports or
religion, or if you're the one putting all those "die techie scum"
stickers outside my house.
But really if you're that last person, can we please talk? :(

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Recording one second each day of it. Here's 2014:
Keeping busy at my day job. I work at a cleantech company on
software which encourages people to conserve energy.
Dolores park, SF street festivals, day hikes, and hosting
Also I live with two pretty cool housemates:
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Open-water swimming! Done a handful of open-water swims throughout
Washington and California; hopefully more to come.
Pretending I know how to use my housemate's DJ equipment.
Tracing wires, pipes, and other pieces of infrastructure when I'm
out in public. Don't worry, that's about as nerdy as it gets :)

All-time favorite is 30 Rock. Yes I'd love to order pizza and
binge-watch it again, great suggestion! Runner-ups include Archer
(close second), House of Cards, and Bob's Burgers (the later
seasons). In the past it was How I Met Your Mother, House
(scheduled classes around it in college), New Girl, SpongeBob
SquarePants, House Hunters, and House Hunters International (NOT
THE SAME THING).
I'm not much of a long-form book reader. Haven't read anything
fiction in several years. I always keep a few non-fiction books on
interesting worldly issues on my Kindle for long bus rides, but
mostly it's news and analysis online.
Notoriously picky eater, but getting better. For example -- Lettuce
is now on the list of approved vegetables. Take-out preferences
include Mexican, Thai, and Indian. A few places remember my name
and order; not sure how I feel about that.
Music is all over the map. I have kick-ass 80s rock, 90s pop, and
Santana stations on Pandora for the kitchen. For background work
music it's some form of electronica, usually trance or some form of
chillout/ambient. Every now and then I blast country; my housemates
call these occurrences "relapses." Sometimes I play Eminem and
reminisce about my childhood. Rumor has it he briefly lived in my
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Chapstick. I keep it stocked everywhere. I can't go more than an
hour without it. We all have our vices...
Google Maps -- I get lost in parking lots.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What that awesome smelling pink soap in some restaurant bathrooms
is, and how to acquire it for my house. Ask me -- I've spent more
time on this endeavor than could possibly be considered healthy
***** BREAKING NEWS ***** HERE IT IS:
Now I'm working on becoming an accredited restaurant so they will
sell it to me.
Gentrification. This is the first time I've been part of a
demographic which is directly targeted by an active local political
movement, and I'm spending a lot of time researching the
Why people in traffic honk so much when there's no way it could
possibly have a positive effect.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably doing something involving Netflix, beer, food trucks,
laundry, barbecue, relaxing with housemates, exploring, comedy,
weekend excursions, or pizza.
Probably not clubbing/dancing or anything swanky/fancy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My "famous" pancake recipe is actually just the first Google search
result, with extra butter.
I can recite every word to Weird Al's "Albuquerque".
