Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In the obstacle course of life, I'm the guy who carefully plans out
his path, discards the plan midway through, then makes a new plan
which usually involves running through a wall and leaving Looney
Tunes style cutouts along the way.
I enjoy a great many things and while I don't mind doing them on my
own, I love to share in those things with others, whether it's
making the perfect pour-over, playing/screaming over Mario Kart,
eating brunch at that hot new place in the city, or dressing up to
get steak with a side of neat whiskey at the diviest place in
I value ambition, sincerity, and compassion in a person. Someone
who lives and lets live, who loves to create more than consume.
We're only on this world for a little bit, we might as well try and
leave our mark.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I type words into a computer and magic happens. Seriously it's
magic, don't question it.
I work in a growing company of 50 or so, and our mission as we've
chosen to accept it is to help people make their real lives as
unique, convenient, and interesting as their online lives. I also
have a volunteer position with an organization teaching women to
code in order to change my industry.
My biggest hobby at the moment is writing. I've been working on a
novel that I've finished the second draft of and realizing there's
quite a mountain left to climb before it's ready for publication.
But I continue to power through because I want to tell a story that
only I can write.
To relax, I enjoy watching and debating the latest episode of Game
of Thrones with friends (OK not really that relaxing), playing
boardgames with those same people, and the occasional wining and
fine dining experience.
On the physical side I train for a bunch of different events.
Weightlifting, yoga, and running, mostly in preparation for Tough
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Singing really loudly at karaoke. Drinking neat whiskey. Usually
those two mix together a lot.
The first things people usually notice about me

The vest. Everyone loves a good vest. Even if I don't wear them all
the time in favor of a hoodie and t-shirt (it gets cold!).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: A Song of Ice and Fire, Dresden Files, Dune, Lord of the
Rings, Sherlock Holmes. I also love Lovecraft despite his racism.
I'm currently working my way through American Gods with my inner
narrator sounding like a cross between Matthew McConaughey and
Movies: Pixar movies, particularly Toy Story and Wall-e. Superhero
movies, in particular The Dark Knight. Frozen, Lord of the Rings,
How to Train your Dragon, Mad Max.
Shows: The Daily Show, Colbert Report, Archer, Arrested
Development, Game of Thrones, Agents of Shield, Brooklyn Nine-Nine,
Music: Girl Talk, Kenny Loggins, Macklemore, Woodkid, Queen,
Florence, KT Tunstall, Tape 5. My relationship with music is a
little strange. My favorite songs all have to do with great
memories, so there's nothing genre or band specific.
Food: Burritos, Sushi, Japanese Curry, Pasta, Steak. Though I'm
down for just about anything.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
3. Physical activity
4. Family and friends
5. Dogs and cats
6. Phone (seriously, Google Maps is a lifesaver)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Stories and the unique ideas that come with them. Why do some
stories simply fade away while others stick around?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
With friends making great big fools of ourselves, whether in the
safety of our own houses or in the great wilderness of San
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once went in against a Sicilian when death was on the line.
