Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Non-finance guy who works in finance anyway.
Unapologetic nerd (but not so much that I can't put an outfit
Addicted to weird (interesting?) kinds of exercise.
Host of world-renowned game nights.
And most importantly, the owner of the infinity bathroom.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a computer scientist who got lured into high-speed trading.
It's pretty fun. There's a lot of yelling. I wouldn't say I'm super
passionate about it, but it's nice to be able to fund my creative
pursuits and/or bubble tea habit (there are two places ON MY BLOCK.
I'm not made of stone.)
Recently I've gotten hooked on acroyoga (for the uninitiated, it's
a non-boring type of yoga where you get all Cirque Du Soleil). Rock
climbing is also fun, but I stick to bouldering. Ain't nobody got
time for all those ropes.
Here’s what I really want to be doing: feeding a sloth a grape. I
saw this happen on Conan once, and it was like I suddenly had a new
calling in life. If you have access to a sloth, please message me
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Snowboarding. Relatively. I only started five years ago but what I
lack in technical prowess I make up for in sheer willingness to go
Improv. I performed in the city for a few years and catch shows
whenever I can.
Settlers. I'll trade you sheep for wood so fast you'll wish you'd

the kind of thing I could see myself naturally being really good
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The fact that I make direct eye contact and smile.
The last thing they notice is that I stole their wallet.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love to read, but my tastes are all over the place. I’ll dive
into some behavioral psychology, then a political thriller, and
then some quirky fiction. If I had to pick one favorite it would be
Pride and Prejudice, sans zombies.
As far as TV goes, there is only one show that anybody needs to
ever watch: Twin Peaks. When I finished I threw the TV in the
garbage, but then my roommate made me get another one because he
hadn’t seen it yet. (With enough arm-twisting I'll admit that I
also really like Seinfeld, Bob's Burgers, Pete and Pete, Freaks and
Geeks, and Lie To Me. And there will always be a special place in
my heart for Doug.)
I'd call myself a foodie if I didn't hate the word so much. My MO
is usually to get a bunch of small plates because I don't want to
have to pick just one thing. For special occasions I’m a big fan of
tasting menus, but otherwise a good bowl of ramen and some shrimp
buns can make my whole day.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Happy, Dopey, Sleepy, Grumpy, Bashful, and Doc.
Sneezy is dead to me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

When I was in the 5th grade I got the lead in the class play. I was
VERY proud of myself, although my family moved in the middle of the
school year and I didn’t actually get to perform. Looking back, it
was probably for the best - the play was the Rosa Parks story and
as the only white kid in my class I was cast as the bus driver.
Maybe not the shining accolade I thought it was.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I think it's obvious, but just in case I need to spell it out: you
have access to a sloth that hangs adorably from a garment rack and
is hungry for a grape. Simple as that.
Or if you know why I cringe a little whenever I hear someone call
