Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Records indicate I was born sometime in late 1986, and I'll have to
trust them on that because honestly I had no idea what was going on
around that time. Raised in a small town in southern California
called Los Angeles (meaning the Angels), in a part of town called
Los Feliz, (meaning the Happy). Not surprisingly I had a miserable
childhood. No, nothing that interesting, really it was fine.
Went to school at UC Berkeley and got a Philosophy degree to ensure
that I was a well-rounded individual who wouldn't be pressured with
too many job opportunities in the future.
Moved up to Portland in 2009, moved into an awesome house in the
inner SE, where I continue to exist until this very day.
With my continued existence, I go to places and do things. Mostly I
go to places and do things which I enjoy doing or otherwise want to
do (read: eating).
I also enjoy visiting places I haven't been to before, and doing
things I've never done, and forming opinions on whether I enjoy
them or not. Often, I do enjoy them, because existence itself is
pretty great overall, and there's not too much that makes me feel
To support this unquenchable thirst for continued existence, I work
as a copywriter for a local float tank business. If you're
unfamiliar, float tanks are large sound and light proof tubs filled
with warm water that has been saturated with Epsom salt, so you
float on the surface with ease. It's basically the most relaxing
experience ever, and you'd probably love it.
I write in my spare time, short stories mostly, which I try to post
with as much regularity as I can muster on my website.
There are other things about me too. Feel free to request more
First in line to buy a jetpack, then just flying like everywhere
from then on.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Striving to be a combination of Malcolm Reynolds and Dale Cooper.
With a hint of Jean-Luc Picard.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Existing. I barely even have to think about it anymore, though I
regularly do anyway just because it's strange I'm even
Also, I learn quite well, my brain seems to retain all sorts of
random information I come across, making me a great trivia partner.
And on that note, I really enjoy board and card games of all sorts,
possibly because I am damn good at them.
I also make awesome cookies. Seriously they are delicious and I
have the recipe memorized just in case.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I am there to be noticed.
Or that I am on fire (if I am on fire).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - Anything by Vonnegut (especially Sirens of Titan and Player
Piano), Calvino (especially If On a Winter's Night a Traveller and
Cosmicomics), Kundera (especially The Hitchhiking Game), Nabokov is
a genius, and Pale Fire is the perfect example of an unreliable
Food - Italian food speaks to me, perhaps it riles up my Sicilian
roots. I love sandwiches. So much, they are perfect food. Cheese
and I have a long-time affair going. My sweet tooth is so out of
control that I'm surprised I don't have diabetes.
Music - As cliche as it sounds, I like just about everything.
Lyrics are super important to me. Either they have to be good or
non-existent. I can definitely get behind instrumental music.
Movies - The Fifth Element, I have watched this movie more than any
other movie. If it's on, I'll watch it until the end. It's just
Dark comedies are right up my alley, especially with a
sociological/psychological twist (Visioneers, I <3 Huckabees,
Brazil) Also animation movies are amazing to watch when the
animation is intricate and beautiful, like in Nausicaa of the
Valley of the Wind.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
4. Free Time
5. New Ideas
7. Breaking arbitrary rules about the number of things I can
mention that I can't do without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why people think the way they do.
Words. Words that look and sound like what they are trying to say.
Like tangle. Or jungle. And jumble. Also 5-dollar words that are
just too perfect not to use when the opportunity presents itself.
Like circumvent. Or delineate.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
in between late Thursday and early Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I buy random shit I don't need on the internet all the time then
feel first world guilt about it.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you happen to be susceptible to reverse psychology, then you
most definitely shouldn't message me. Don't do it. Seriously, don't
message me. I bet you couldn't even if you tried.
If you are immune to reverse psychology, then you should totally
message me. I don't exactly know why, but you should.
Also if you want to take me to a river. Anytime, I'm down. Let's go
to a river. Lakes also acceptable.
