Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Update: So I no longer work at okcupid. No hard feelings, was just
time to go. So, since it's impossible to change usernames, and
since I, like everyone who's ever asked to change a username, have
no desire to re-answer 600+ questions, my username is now, and will
always be, a lie.
Update: I was wrong. My username is now entirely accurate.
Yes, I can still regale you with the weird tales of human nature to
which OkCupid employees are privy, but they will fall increasingly
out of date after March 19th, 2010.
Catch the latest.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to learn violin again. Basically because I ran out of
interesting TV shows.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Lotsa stuff. Especially bass. If bass was a competition, I would
totally kick your ass.
The first things people usually notice about me

I once went on a date with this girl. I was unemployed, broke,
killing time, freshly dropped in brooklyn with neither hope nor
prayer, and this unimpressed and surprisingly short girl invites me
to see a band after I send her an email on myspace, despite her
strict warning not to message her on myspace. Anyway, without
expectations, I head down and it turns out we're an hour early for
the music. So it's a summer evening, and we go to drink whiskey and
smoke cigarettes and chat each other up for a while.
Four hours later we've missed the band and haven't left the bar. I
can say, without a doubt, this was the best date I'd ever had, and
this girl was basically girl-me. Sadly, despite my affable cool
during the date, I immediately blew it, probably because I'd just
gotten out of a two year relationship and was, as mentioned above,
unemployed, and had nothing much to do besides pine after a random
stranger. So she smelled the puppy-esque desperation and headed
south for the winter.
But on that date, she played me Strange Religion by Mark Lanegan.
Even now, after all the associations with that first and only date
faded away, this song takes me a little bit out of the day, and
puts me in a sentimental fantasy of delicate romance in a vicious
I also like AC/DC.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
"Testing something again"
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
This was an edit by someone. There was no way I was letting the
actual edits go public, but I thought I'd do them the honor of
actually changing the content.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drinking. This doesn't really set Friday apart from other nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
There's a secret IRC chatroom mostly for embittered ex-okcupid
employees for which I'm indirectly responsible.
