Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My username is an anagram for my actual name. This is my self
summary. There are many like it across the internets but this one
is for OKCupid. It's kind of ridiculous attempting to summarize a
person and all of their complexities in a little tiny box but
here's the best that I have to offer right now.
I am not a mind reader or a svengali and I don't like mind games
but I will be there for you when you need a hand or a favor. I care
deeply about my family and friends and I recognize that I can't
help everyone. I have somewhat high expectations of my friends and
don't really care for drama or indecisiveness. Laughter, kindness,
compassion and an appreciation for the beauty this amazingly
wonderful world has to offer are traits I seek in others.
I love finding new places to eat and going there with friends or
family and talking to my parents who are truly two beautiful
people, each in their own uniquely wonderful ways.
I've been very fortunate to get to do things that many people only
dream of doing and for that I'm very grateful, but I still have
lots more spectacular and amazing gifts to share with the world.
Some of those gifts are just starting to emerge.

Oh yeah, and I'm not at all into Burning Man. It's a cool idea but
I have no desire to go to the desert to camp. I'm sure this will
turn lots of people away. I'm fine with that.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working at a notorious fruit company in Cupertino, CA. Still making
and selling music online here: http://mp3.belief-systems.com
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making electronic dance music, picking awesome music and movies to
listen to/watch and finding a great place to eat in the Bay Area.

I really have no clue as to what people notice about me right off
the bat. I hope that some of the people I meet here will let me

Help your potential matches find common interests.
This is a ridiculously long list I've got to grab from my old
Myspace profile. I'll just say tons!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My awesome cats. My folks. My good friends. My iPod with tons of
music on it. My amazingly quiet and sound isolated bedroom where I
can escape the cold, or the light when I stay up a little late and
need to sleep during the day. I'm a vampire by nature. The day job
forces me into the light but I would prefer to go to bed just
before the sun comes up. It's hard to find good jobs that support
this time arrangement though.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The absurdity of life and all of it's material trappings and how
much I covet silly things that ultimately have no meaning in the
grand scheme of things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out at a bar with friends, seeing a movie, having dinner at a
restaurant, watching a movie at home or just downloading movies or
music on the couch. I don't need to go out all the time anymore. I
used to go out almost every night but I'm less restless than I used
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Nothing. That's why it's private the way it should be. :)

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You don't take yourself to seriously, you can have a laugh at silly
jokes, don't require a tremendous amount of maintenance and are not
psychotic, don't suffer from BPD (this is borderline personality
disorder, btw) and you are not a sociopath. For a definition of
what I mean by sociopath, look here:
