Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been in Atlanta for about a year now so this is probably due
for an update. Making a good first impression is pretty tough to
do, especially when we haven't actually met, but let me give it a
shot. More than likely you're visiting my profile because I sent
you an email and somehow managed to pull together enough of a witty
message to pique your interest, at least a little bit.
I relocated here for my company and it has been a great experience
so far. I've already started to make a few good friends in town
through rec leagues (ultimate frisbee and kickball) but I'd like to
meet someone interesting to experience more of the city and
surrounding area with. I plan to do some camping and hiking once
the weather gets a bit nicer.
I love to travel but unfortunately haven't had a chance to travel
outside the country except on business trips; that will definitely
be changing soon. Needless to say I loved every minute of my work
trips because I was able to take a lot of fun weekend trips. The
food, beer and chocolate in Brugge was amazing. Plus I think
working overseas gave me a much different experience with the
culture than simply traveling there as a tourist would have.
Family and friends hold one of the most important places in my
life. My family is fairly small but very close and I wish I could
see them more often. I have amazing friends that are spread out all
over the country but making the effort to see them is no effort at
all. Most recently 20 of us rented a house together on the slopes
of Breckenridge, CO for a week of snowboarding and skiing. Plenty
of room for one more!
I'm looking to meet someone who'll push me to be a better person
and try some things that I might not otherwise try on my own, and
who'll let me do the same for them. Someone who's kind, has a good
sense of humor (sarcasm welcome), likes to stay active and is up
for an adventure every once in a while. I would much prefer to meet
someone who values a fun experience over something material.
I think this profile only scratches the surface of who I am, so

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work at an engineering firm designing building systems. What I
really like about my job is that I constantly get to learn new
things, hopefully things that I can apply to help make the world a
little better. It's also not mundane, usually at least, I rarely
have a typical day.
Still being relatively new to Atlanta I'd like to meet some people
who are active to explore with. I'm trying to get into rock
climbing a bit and want to do some camping in the spring / summer.

I like to read quite a bit and tend to mix it up between fiction
and nonfiction. Game of Thrones, Ender's Game and the Lord of the
Rings are some of my favorites. Lately I've been hitting some
interesting historical books like the Imperial Cruise.
For movies and TV I generally stick to adventure, comedy,
thrillers. Indiana Jones and James Bond are two of my all times
faves. I enjoy the Walking Dead, Parks and Rec, and most shows on
AMC, HBO, Science Channel and NBC.

the grill in the summer.
