Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Quick list of things about me because I like to make lists:
- Graduated from KSU 2 years ago, managed to get a job with an
awesome company in St. Louis. For better or for worst I somehow
managed to get transferred back to Topeka.
- Coffee: I love it. I regularly get funny looks from my friends
when I tell them how much I spend on the stuff.
- I’m terrible about staying on one topic when talking to people;
there are some many interesting things to talk about my brain can’t
focus just on one.
- Boats are probably my favorite thing in the world; summer just
wouldn’t be complete without spending some quality time lounging
around on the back of the boat.
-I travel on a fairly regular basis for both business and pleasure.
Unlike a lot of people I really don’t mind living in Topeka (every
city is what you make it), but I can’t help but to get out to
explore new places/have random travel adventures with my
-Messing around in the kitchen is one of my newer hobbies, in
particular baking; I have found it to be a great way to decompress
from a long work week. I’d say I’m definitely a solid 90% in the
“Hey this is really good!”/ “Holy crap that’s horrid!” hit ratio
with my cooking
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I use to want to be a paleontologist, but then I turned 6. Then I
wanted to be a boat builder, but I turned 12. Then I wanted to be
an architect, but I turned 18 and realized I don’t want to be broke
the rest of my life. Now at 24, I work for a construction company
out in St. Louis as an quasi-engineer/estimator. Is it as glamorous
as being an architect? Nope, but I think it’s about 10x more
interesting/challenging and I have yet to find a job that has quite
as much of an adrenaline rush as the one I have now. I love what I
do and don’t think I wouldn’t change it for anything in the
The number one reason why I love my job though: I get paid to color
stuff with highlighters!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Well I don't mean to brag or anything but I've got some mad
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
um...I'm bald. After they get over that big shocker, they usually
feel compelled to touch/rub my head with their icy cold hands. Why
people do this I have no clue, but I can tell you that the whole
"grab my head with your freezing cold hands" experience is
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: I listen mostly to alternate rock although I like to throw a
bit of indie and pop in there every now and then for good measure.
Currently frequenting the top of my playlists: The Mowgli’s,
Blondfire, Matt & Kim, Daft Punk, Alt-J, M83, Icona Pop, &
TV: I really don’t watch any TV, there are way too many other
interesting things to be doing.
Food: I’m pretty much down for anything. I’ve recently started to
challenge myself by trying some of the foods I’ve had a prejudice
against since I was a kid; mostly mushrooms and seafood. My
favorite food though: steak; nothing fancy, just quality meat,
properly seasoned & cooked.
Books- I read, a lot; I’m into everything from the classics to
science fiction although I've been trying to stick more toward the
non-fiction side of things right now. Currently I'm reading Dance
with Dragons by George Martin and slowly making my way through
Thomas Jefferson: The art of power. Some of my favorites include
the Dresden files, anything by Douglas Adams, The Heart of
Darkness, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Fahrenheit 451, The Grand
Design, The Pearl, Naked Economics, and many others that I don't
feel like typing out.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. coffee (life would just be depressing without it)
2. boats (again life would be depressing without them)
3. a stocking cap in winter (my head gets bloody cold in the
4. cool summer mornings (um...I just like them, 'nuff said)
5. Goals (This is pretty self-explanatory)
6. A watch (I'm all about being punctual)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
um...probably on how I need to focus on what I should be doing
instead of thinking about dumb things like why people continue to
make toasters with settings that can burn toast in such a horrible
way that no decent person would eat it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I can be a bit of a workaholic so Friday nights are usually my stay
at home and let my brain try and recover. Saturday is the day I'm
usually out and about, doing stuff with friends.
