Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm probably best described as more of an atypical individual -
eccentric if you will. I joined OkCupid to meet friends and maybe
form a longer relationship.
For a little over two years, I've been focusing on healthier living
and find it's turning me into a hippy (or at least that's what my
friends tell me). A perk though is that my palette has grown into
areas I never would have explored before (I've eaten grass! [don't
worry not off any lawns]).
People tell me that when they first meet me, I come off a bit
formal (it's out of respect honestly!), but after they get to know
me a light switch flips and I am more akin to a lolcat bouncing off
Also I live in Wilmington right now, but am making my way moving up
to Philly in the next few months. I work, and spend most of my free
time up there.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a software engineer by trade and by passion, so I spend a lot
of my time learning to hack out cool new things both professionally
and for fun.
I dabble in writing, I've been poking here and there at some pieces
- one day I'll finish something, but I like the ever growing nature
of them. It's a great way to let express myself.
I love to exercise, as I mentioned above for the last two plus
years I've been on a healthy living kick. Always eager to meet
others who are equally interested in new ways of healthier
Lately I have been going to a lot of concerts, spending much of my
time in Philly checking out various clubs as well as taking a lot
of cooking/martial arts/dancing classes. The mind is like a sponge,
still searching for boundary thresholds of the skull. None found
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've been playing around with computers since I was five when my
Dad let me use a 486 and told me to write DOS menu to launch my
video games. Since then I've learned a heap of new languages (eg.
F#, not French).
I'm a pretty darn good cook, but always willing to learn new styles
and tastes to introduce to my meals.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love music, I've got my affinities as anyone does. I like
electro-swing, industrial, singer/songwriter folkish stuff. I
really like everything - in fact I've been trying lately to use my
technical skills to write a playlist generator that ensures I am
constantly trying out new forms of music.
I view food as a sort of art form, and enjoy a variety of dishes. I
have a ton of food allergies (good rule, don't feed me) which makes
cooking more of an interesting black science. I like contrasting
flavors, as an example sweet melded with spicy. My favorite types
are Mexican, BBQ, and Italian (a death sentence if I actually
pursue it outside of my own kitchen).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'll leave out the obvious stuff, friends, family, etc... and get
down to the less obvious.
- Technology - An EMP would make me cry :'(
- Exotic Foods
- other sentient beings...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Things are pretty crazy up there, not sure we want to go wandering
around in there, many a butterfly net has disappeared without much
a reason - but here goes...
I spend a lot of time thinking and day dreaming about software that
I want to write or stories I want to get down on paper. Sometimes
I'm an action hero, sometimes a mad scientist. It's usually pretty
noisy up there, if I'm being quite and not talking much, I'm
probably chatting up a storm in my head.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Partying partying YEAH Fun fun fun fun fun... (looking forward to
I live by the idea that fun can be had anywhere, you just need to
be willing to look. I'll be the guy on the dance floor, possibly
making a fool of himself, singing karaoke (only one song, I swear I
don't want to deafen you). Wandering around the city just hanging
out. Or taking in a nice art gallery, followed by a night at the
theater. In short whatever happens, and I'm just along for the

If you want to chat - I'm always cool with making new friends - I
try to get back to people in a reasonable time frame but sometimes
