Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! I like to think of myself as a big picture person who can
appreciate the novelty of hearing a robotic answering machine
programmed with a british accent for a Wisconsin number, and hangs
onto defaced dollar bills for sometimes weeks at a time.
My favorite topic to think about is cities. I love beautiful urban
design, public transportation, maps, and awesome pedestrian
environments. Going to school accelerated my passion for learning,
and I am interested in hearing and talking about a wide range of
I had potential college courses mapped out a good deal before the
actual enrollment deadline, and had a rough agenda for an overseas
trip ready to go a month before it not working out. Day to day I
appreciate spontaneity: I was the proud recipient of "Most Random"
back in high school!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently graduated from two year masters program in urban
planning, and currently work as a planner at the state DOT. Not a
bad place to start but I dream of working somewhere a bit less
I am an amateur drummer and music enthusiast, though I haven't
played in an actual band in a little over a year. Lately, I've
given the guitar and keyboard a shot in hopes of someday forming a
new band composed entirely of myself. I may have recorded several
songs in hopes of dropping the hottest ep of 2016, and hope to get
above a 6.0 from Pitchfork...
While I'm not chasing that dream, I've got love for plenty of other
activities: cooking (basically anything food related), watching
sports/tv, pickup basketball, reading and hiking.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Waking up exactly one minute before my alarm goes off, answering
geography trivia questions, retaining information of varying
degrees of usefulness in general, listening, getting cats to like
me, making stews in the crock pot.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm really tall. And no, I'm not on an official basketball team,
but I do enjoy playing for fun. But you can pick me out easily in a
large crowd of people, and because of this, I would probably make a
sub par Waldo :(.
Once you make the effort see my face, people do say I have very
green eyes. And I am usually smiling, sometimes without even

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
2. Courteous people
3. Big cities
4. Late night TV
5. Down comforters
6. Instant couscous
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-What the place i'm standing at was like in 1915, and what it could
be like in 2115.
-What's for dinner.
-How to turn my song idea into an actual song.
-Geographic breakdowns of things, like this
: I also want
to point out that it's soda, and a water fountain!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Pitchers and live music at the Terrace, with a tasty dinner before
and perhaps more drinks afterwords. All while also looking forward
to some low key Saturday afternoon web surfing, sports watching and
grocery shopping followed by a game night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I swallowed an entire scrabble piece once, and I was totally not a
small child at the time.
