Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ex music blog editor of 10 years. Founded two sites you probably
never heard of (Buzzgrinder and Noise Creep). Internet nerd, metal
head, friend of cats, and coffee drinker.
Nomad since late 2010 when I left NYC with my bike and a bag. I
biked across NJ and most of PA. Then I bought a bike bag and
started traveling by bus between cities. Biked in OH, KY, TN, GA,
AL, NOLA, TX, OK, FL, NC, SC, VA, RI, MA, ME in about a year before
getting injured. I'm still traveling all over the US, though, just
without a bike. Lots of visiting friends and couch surfing.
Fuck cops, and fuck any sexist / racist / disability jokes.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Lots of nerdy stuff on the internet (email marketing, writing for a
metal blog, doing meta trivia).
In PA at the moment. Traveling to Denver, CO later in May, which is
why I updated my zip-code. Always up for meeting people during my
OOOPS. Trip to Denver called off. Next time!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Baking cookies, biking, hiking, long walks in woods or cities,
exploring, drawing robots, Twitter (@sethw) and other Internet
things, making coffee, long distance bus travel (my record is 27
hours), sleeping anywhere, eating like I'm a teenager, playing bass
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The beard. Sometimes the dimples. Glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Very much into metal (hair, doom, stoner, sludge, technical death),
grunge, math-rock, rock, Tron-soundtrack, and as a bass player into
Primus / Victor Wooten - but I am sooo not a music snob. Not a
music elitist at all. If you say you like metal but "OMG can't name
the first five albums from all of the BIG FOUR in order" I don't
give a shit.
Breakfast foods are my favorite, and pizza, coffee, cookies,
chocolate, Mexican food, Indian food, and pizza. Pizza.
Magazines: Monocle, Decibel, Thrasher, BMX magazine, Offscreen Mag,
The Great Discontent
Star Wars, 'Death Star.'
Ask me if I've seen a movie. I'll probably say nope. Yes, I'm that
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music, coffee, snacks, Internet, six hours of sleep, and at the
least one middle finger.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"This might not work." - Seth Godin
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home writing metal trivia for the next week, listening to
Overkill, and snacking.
Out with friends in a new city eating cheap food.
I'm a total hermit, most of the time. Would rather stay in and
listen to music / play board games / video games than visit a loud
bar filled with amateur hour bullshitery.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're cool with record shops and book stores over bars and fancy
You're looking to swap stories of adventure, fear, and/or learning
over coffee, or on a hike, or sitting next to a river.
You've ever driven more than 3+ hours to see a band you love.
