I moved to Seattle 3 years ago after spending the previous 33 years
of my life in New England. I'm a big geek (both figuratively and
literally) who enjoys games of all kinds (card, board, video, role
playing). I enjoy a night out with friends, but loathe the typical
bar scene and prefer a pub that serves lots of good craft
I work in technology and am extremely passionate about its use. I
love to tinker with computers and software and have spent many a
long night in front of a computer screen.
Outside of technology, I am also passionate about supporting Boston
sports teams. While I no longer live and die with every play, I
have been supporting the Red Sox, Celtics, Patriots, and Bruins for
my entire life. You don't have to be a sports fan yourself, but at
least be tolerant of my fandom.
I'm just looking to meet some new people, make some friends and
maybe something more.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a day job as a programmer at Amazon that keeps me busy
during the day. I recently started brewing my own beer as a new
hobby. I have done a total of 5 in the last 7 months that have been
I’m really good at
I've always been very good at puzzles, it is inherent in my job.
I'm also a half-way decent cook and cook 90% of my own meals.
The first things people usually notice about me
If not my size, my hair. I have a pony tail that I have grown and
cut numerous times (most recently to donate to Locks of Love). I
also have a full beard that I grew out 2 years ago.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I wish I had more time for books, but I don't. Among those books I
have read and thoroughly enjoyed are the Harry Potter books, Brave
New World, Ender's Game, and Old Man's War.
For TV shows, I love a good comedy (Louie, HIMYM, Community, and
Modern Family among others), but love a good drama as well (Mad
Men, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones). I'm still searching for a
replacement for True Blood as my guilty pleasure.
I haven't been to the movies too much in the past few years, but I
tend to prefer movies that make you think. I will watch an action
flick or two, but these are not all I will watch. I am also a bit
of a cult movie fan. Among my favorites are Fight Club, Brazil, 12
Monkeys, Big Trouble in Little China, Groundhog Day, and Barry
Gordy's The Last Dragon.
My musical tastes are pretty broad (I will listen to anything but
country) but I tend to drift back to Elecronica artists like The
Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk, Orbital, and Crystal Method. I am a
recovering Rock Band addict who is a little ashamed to admit that a
lot of what he learned about classic rock is from that game.
As for food, I love spicy cuisine (Mexican, Indian, Thai,
Vietnamese). Seattle Chinese food (outside of Dim Sum) makes me
The six things I could never do without
1. My family - with me through thick and thin
2. My friends - a great group of guys (and gals) that have gone to
bat for me more times than I care to count.
3. Music - the soundtrack of life. I often remember events based on
the music that was playing in the background.
4. My iPhone - changed my life in so many ways, both personally and
5. Steak - If someone told me I could never eat red meat again, I'd
6. Beer - To quote a phrase, it is proof that god exists and that
he loves us
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Technology (like I said, I'm a geek). I also think about my future,
where I'm going, what I'm doing and whether or not I'm moving
towards my goals or not.
On a typical Friday night I am
Since moving to Seattle, my Friday nights have turned into an
exploration. I often find myself wandering the city in search of a
place that serves good beer and where I can hopefully meet like
minded people. Sometimes I go home drunk, sometimes I meet a new
friend, either way I go home happy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm incredibly easy to google stalk. My username is 100% unique to
me, enter it into google and you'll pretty much find everything
I've put on the internet.
You should message me if
Message me if you're interested in talking to a geeky guy who's
looking to make a connection, even if it's just as friends. I am
extremely open minded and not looking for anything in particular
from the site other than to meet new people.
