My self-summary
My name is Riley, and I recently graduated with a M.S. in Industrial Engineering from The Ohio State University. I am just now moving back to Columbus after spending a year in Cincinnati working with Deloitte Consulting. I enjoy rock climbing and racquetball. I love reading books, and have chewed through quite a library in my life. I'm a really happy person and I love making people laugh.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a Bachelor's in Aeronautical Engineering and a Master's in Operations Research. I have just moved back to Columbus after spending a year in Cincinnati. Good to be back, but life is a lot different after college! My job has me traveling around a lot, so I get to see new places all the time, which is great. I think they are sending me to Japan for a few weeks next time. Woo!

My dream would be to start my own operations consultation firm.

My dream dream (the one I know will never happen) would be to make a company of just smart people who invent things. Sometimes ideas just come to me and I just think "...I could totally make a living thinking up cool things"
I’m really good at
I have been a teacher the past couple years to finance grad school and have a few teaching awards under my belt, so I guess you could say I'm good at getting through to people.
I'm also good at making people laugh. Once I get to know you I can anticipate what to say to just make you bust out laughing. My friends keep me around to make them happy. I'm so used.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and personality. I am always upbeat. Not in the annoying or bubbly sort of upbeat, but rather its hard to get me down. I don't think I've ever shouted at someone (except in jest or extreme sarcasm) in my whole life. I don't see the reason for negative feelings, so I usually work through them very quickly. This all leads to smiling a lot, and so people generally mention that I have a nice smile and an infectious laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
If I was to list my favorite book it would probably change from day to day. I have read too many books and so it is hard to have an overall favorite. I really enjoy Star Wars, Dresden Files, anything by Brent Weeks and Trudi Canavan.

Recently I saw the Frozen movie. It was a real kickback to the Disney I used to know and love as a child. Those songs are currently stuck in my head and coming up on my Pandora playlist more than any straight male would normally admit. I also like all of these new Comic movies that are coming out. Not that I've ever read a comic, but finally the era of the nerds is here!

I like pop hits that the radio plays, and my favorite band is Hot Chelle Rae. I will listen to everything that is not screaming/too heavy on guitar and drums, or country.
Favorite shows Misfits, Archer, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Breaking Bad. I like Top Gear even though I don't understand anything about car culture.

My favorite food would probably be Stuffed Green Peppers. A little specific, but that's my favorite dish. Nobody stuffs a pepper like my mammy can. MMmm mm good!
Favorite genre of food would probably just be americanized asian cuisine.
Six things I could never do without
1. A book (I love reading)
2. Cellphone (I'm not always using it but I can't imagine not having it)
3. Access to the internet (Reddit and Netflix)
4. Friends (I'm a social butterfly, and I need some human interaction)
5. Humor (If I'm not making you laugh then you're broken)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the Universe, and Everything.

I spend a lot of time thinking about where my life is going. Trying to pop out a few technical degrees, get a cool high paying job, climb the career ladder, get married, have kids, spoil the crap out of my kids, retire to another country while remotely spoiling my grandkids, die peacefully. What a life that would be, and right now none of it seems to be impractical or impossible.
On a typical Friday night I am
With my friends. I enjoy a good movie night, or just sitting around laughing about random things until you realize it's 3AM.
You should message me if
Message me if I interest you. I don't really want to hook up, I'm here for friends->dating->relationship

Also, if you made it this far you have to realize how huge of a nerd I am, if that's not what your looking for then you are on the wrong profile.
The two of us
