Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I think OKC was wrong to call out Brendan Eich. Shame on you!
I'm a somewhat geeky guy who is also very creative. I earned a BS
in engineering and 1/3 of an MFA in art, which I try to use for
Good. I'm a big believer in the power of design.
I'm a very hard worker and an information sponge with a terrible
memory. I won't retain a fact unless I can a place for it in the
framework of things I already know. I'm also one of the more
rational people you'll meet, except when it comes to talking about
things that I think are beautiful.
Full disclosure: I'm married and in an open relationship and I'm
also interested in meeting new friends through OKC. I enjoy
learning from other people and sharing insights and
I've become more interested recently in developing deep
relationships outside of marriage and finding partners who would be
more like family than acquaintances. To have more people to share
life with sounds wonderful.
I'm the baby daddy to a beautiful boy to whom I give a lot of my
time and attention. I'm still able to meet people because my wife
is awesome, but my activities need to be planned in advance. I put
a lot of value on reliability and I ask that my friends and
acquaintances do what they say they'll do when they say they'll do
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm using technology to build stronger communities.
In my free time I always have some sort of personal project going
on. These range from art projects to car work to computer
programming. I also enjoy sports (soccer, biking up and down the
Berkeley hills), reading, and traveling. Actually, scratch the last
one. I think I'm done with traveling.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Explaining things that I know something about.
- Admitting when I'm wrong or I don't know.
- Apologizing for my mistakes.
- Working hard and getting shit done.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I tend to be quiet but confident. (Which may be a nice way to say
that I'm awkward around people I don't know well.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I go through phases where I'll try to read everything I can about a
particular subject. Here are some favorites from the past few
years: anything by Michael Lewis (Liar's Poker, The Big Short, The
Blind Side, Moneyball), The Omnivore's Dilemma, The Killing Star,
Leaving Microsoft to Change the World.
I don't see many films now but a few of my favorites are Eternal
Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Adaptation, Juno, Moulin Rouge, and
Inception. Inception blew my mind.
I don't have very discriminating taste buds but I do enjoy many
types of food. My most memorable gastronomic experience was eating
delicious and cheap Thai food from carts in Bangkok.
Does anyone else think this is the least helpful profile section?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Empathy allows us to imagine another's experiences without having
to have those experiences ourselves. A great deal of the world's
problems are caused by a lack of it.
Curiosity drives me to learn about how things work. It's surprising
how often knowledge outside my field of work or study becomes
Beauty makes things worth creating. I hope to make something,
someday, that's so beautiful, functional, and impactful that people
will be better for having seen/experienced it.
Computers and networks, through which I will change the
Family and friends can be counted on for support whenever I need
That's only five. I ran out.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Exhausted. And glad to have survived another week.

last.fm told me that I like country music. My desk is a mess. I
have too many bikes and one of them makes me feel a little bit

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you're spectacular and funny and you think we'd be good friends.
Big bonus if you live nearby. What I'm looking for, truly, is to
find people who I connect with. I tend to get along really well
only with a small subset of people but those are the relationships
that I value most and want more of.
If you have an interest in any of the following, we'll probably
have something to talk about: technology, art/design/photography,
films, applied philosophy, auto maintenance, how to make the world
a better place, snow sports, hiking, and tennis.
P.S., I think big brains are super sexy.
