According to Meyers-Briggs, I am a Mastermind (INTJ). I love to
laugh and to make people laugh. I prefer to plan things out, but am
totally fine with spontaneity and adapt quickly. I like to take
things apart and figure out how they work (including guys I've
dated/am dating :P ). I'm analytical, contemplative, and love to
learn new things. I'm also a night owl, am left-handed
(ambidextrous for everything except writing), and prefer wine over
beer. Oh, and I've been playing the viola since I was 12 and chess
since I was 8.
As far as interests go, I'm interested in a lot! My more active
- Board/card games (favorites include: chess
, Settlers of Catan
, Magic: The
, Ticket To Ride
- Music/Playing the viola
- Gym stuff/yoga
- Go on long walks/hikes
- Explore new areas/Experience new things
I also have this tendency to rate people 4 or 5 stars on here in
hopes of passively getting them to initiate conversation with me.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in Data Analytics in Healthcare, but also have backgrounds
in IT, Renewable Energy, and Banking. Additionally, I'm a very
active musician (orchestras and chamber music), though I consider
music to be more of an avocation/hobby that occasionally earns me
extra money. Otherwise, I keep busy and have mastered time to the
point of squeezing 61 minutes out of an hour.
I have a lot of lofty goals that change periodically depending on
what interests me. You should ask about that. :) (not-so-subtle
conversation starter suggestion)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Remembering stuff (though I have trouble with names)
- Making lists of threes

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I am a regular bibliophile (I hope that's
legal in this state :o ). My last retail job was with a bookstore
and I made excellent use of my employee discount. That being said I
have great appreciation for: L.E. Modesitt Jr., Harry Potter (who
doesn't?), Dan Brown, Ursula K. Le Guin, J.R.R. Tolkien, Chronicles
of Narnia, and His Dark Materials. In my bookshelves, you'll also
find the Tao Te Ching, Tao of Pooh/Te of Piglet, classics like The
Time Machine and Alice in Wonderland, a bunch of Dungeons and
Dragons books, chess books, Calvin and Hobbes, and a LOT of sheet
music and scores.
Movies: My tastes vary widely, but I'm always a
sucker for a good action/adventure movie or comedy.
Music: My music library is mostly classical
(favorite composers include Brahms, Beethoven, Paganini, Mozart,
Schubert, Dvorak, Mendelssohn, and Wagner), but is pretty diverse
otherwise. I'm not a huge fan of country or rap.
Food: I'm not horribly picky (though, I can't
STAND tomatoes, raw mushrooms, whole peppers, or raw onions) when
it comes to food. I LOVE sushi, am quite fond of Italian and Asian
cuisines, and like to try new things.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Self-actualization, and Self-transcendance, according to Abraham
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. Really. I'm in my head a lot. I also tend to notice a
lot of -- OOOH, SHINY.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Pfft.. "typical"? No such thing for me.

I'd rather share a short story.
The pupils of the Tendai school used to study meditation before
Zen entered Japan. Four of them who were intimate friends promised
one another to observe seven days of silence.
On the first day all were silent. Their meditation had begun
auspiciously, but when night came and the oil lamps were growing
dim one of the pupils could not help exclaiming to a servant: "Fix
The second pupil was surprised to hear the first one talk. "We are
not supposed to say a word," he remarked.
"You two are stupid. Why did you talk?" asked the third.
"I am the only one who has not talked," concluded the fourth
