What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working a bunch: I'm in the completely outlandish position of
working in a software-related field at a tech company in the South
Traveling: All over New Zealand and Iceland, Munich, Prague, up and
down England & Scotland, and more. There are stories to go with
each, feel free to ask.
Creating: Specifically, books to write, and board games to test
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Failing to recognize awkward moments. That was probably one,
- Brainstorming. You know how Jupiter's Great Red Spot is a giant,
permanent storm on the planet? It's kind of like that, but slightly
less well-known, and less visible without using a telescope.
- Hugs, because I've heard it often enough.
- Doling out terrible, sarcastic advice.
- Getting stories out of people.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get the sense that this isn't something people normally comment
on, but people do tend to notice that I can be rather quiet. Sooner
or later, they learn that this is because I like to be deliberate
with what I say... or at least feel like I'm being deliberate. It
comes and goes.
Physically, you'll have to tell me. My eyes are a mix of hazel and
green, which does get noticed occasionally, so I've got that going
for me, which is nice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Speculative fiction (including the Sci-Fi & Fantasy
genres) is my favorite, for so many reasons. (G.R.R Martin, Joe
Abercrombie, Peter Watts, Frank Herbert). Also some "literature"
(Cormac McCarthy, Albert Camus, Franz Kafka).
Music: A relatively wide variety. Post-rock, indie, metal, some
electronic, classical, blues, hip hop, etc. I don't discriminate
against bands that aren't Nickleback.
Shows: To everyone's inevitable surprise, the ones that everyone
has said are great (Game of Thrones, True Detective, The Wire, etc)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The ability to count.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Cultural, biological, geological, social, and astronomical
evolution. The panopticon.
And stuff. Mostly stuff.
Whether the sarcasm on this profile will register on people's
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working, for most of it.
Then: Grabbing a drink with friends, seeing a show, at the gym,
catching something on Netflix. Everybody says that there's no such
thing as a 'typical Friday night,' but really, I've got some idea
of what I like to do, and all it really takes is good company to
make a good night, most times.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'd say that I'm afraid of how much I have in common with Ron
Swanson, but that'd be a lie.
I'm kind of excited about that part.
