My self-summary
I moved here from my little suburban hometown in Georgia about three years ago. Currently working on website stuff.

"nerd, but sporty"

Trade podcasts and hike with me?
What I’m doing with my life
I spend the day working harder than I really have to, then come home and watch a few episodes of Netflix or whatever I'm into, screw around on the internet, followed by reading or maybe listening to some podcasts until I fall asleep.

Occasional board game night with some cool Philly friends.

Long and aimless bike rides across Philly on the weekends. Or a little hike/trail run through Wissahickon park, I'm trying to cultivate an ~outdoorsy aesthetic~.

Also, constantly trying to make my apartment a little cozier. Hit me up if you know things about plants???
I’m really good at
Fixing broken things, explaining and teaching concepts to people, petting dogs. And I have a wealth of mostly useless history knowledge. I'm a -decent- trivia teammate.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes are "really really blue".

You tell me, though?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Lots of sci-fi with a bit of fantasy in. Terry Pratchett stuff (Discworld), Neil Gaiman, Douglas Adams, The Phantom Tollbooth, Cloud Atlas, House of Leaves... many, many more.
Just finished Universal Harvester by John Darnielle, a very spooky novel set in the rural Midwest.

Movies: most Wes Anderson and Studio Ghibli/Miyazaki stuff, Lost in Translation, Paprika, and every nature documentary. Trade recommendations with me~

TV: Planet Earth and similar nature docs are great to me. Also Master of None, Always Sunny, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Bob's Burgers, the old Twilight Zone Series, Good Eats, Iron Chef, Rick & Morty, Mr Robot, Black Mirror.

Music: Variety of moody pop/indie stuff... King Krule, Mountain Goats, Hop Along, Bright Eyes, Belle and Sebastian, CocoRosie, Broken Social Scene, White Stripes, Rilo Kiley, Grimes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Starfucker, Smashing Pumpkins, occasionally Kanye, many many more.

I know most songs from Hamilton by memory now...

Food: Indian food is the best; I could eat naan for days. Frozen yogurt is also amazing every time. For drinks I like lagers and saisons, bourbon, but also there's nothing so tasty as a blood orange margarita.
Six things I could never do without
1) Dogs
2) Hope
3) The Internet
4) Animals. Especially dogs.
5) Jokes. Laughing is a good starting reaction to most problems.
6) People to talk to. I like to confess my personal struggles and successes to a few close friends who in turn do the same back to me. It's a good system for staying sane.

Nachos are also very important to me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Cute people. Dogs. Maps, I really love maps. That intersection of art and information is really interesting to me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with a few close friends for board games and conversation (join us!), out with coworkers for drinks, watching a movie, cooking something up for dinner or being lazy and finding a pizza to eat in front of Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My last Google searches are:

- largest buddha statue
- pebble shore lake
- pizza hut flavors
You should message me if
Just do it, I'm pretty friendly. And meeting in real life is better than awkwardly messaging over the internet.

You want to hang out in Ikea for a few hours, days, months, whatever.

Hiking, camping? I always want to do more outdoorsy stuff.

I also really like people who make art, or create things, so cooking or knitting or any activity like that is very cool to me.

Also looking for day-trip/travel buddies, I haven't done that in a while and I like seeing new places.

I love nerds, compassionate people... Compassionate nerds?
