My self-summary
Hey, my name is Jerry, pero mis amigos hispanohablantes me llaman Gerardo. As it seems most austinites are, I am a transplant. I moved here from Chicago about 4 years ago to go to UT and to escape the tundra. To make up for the 18 years spent in the terrible Midwest climate, I like to spend a lot of time exploring all of the green space Austin has to offer. You can usually find my dog, Lana, and I hiking the greenbelt or bumming at the park. I also love swimming, kayaking, biking, and camping. When I return to the indoors, I like to do a lot of cooking (and eating). I love a good movie, especially when it's accompanied by a drink at the Alamo Drafthouse. Speaking of drinking, I like doing that too. Some of my favorite spots are Buzzmill, House Wine, Fadó, Mugshots, Cheer Up Charlie's, Barbarella, Violet Crown Social Club, Shangrila, Luster Pearls, and Icenhauers. But I'm not picky. I love exploring Austin and finding new and exciting things to do in this city. Not really sure what else I should put here, so if you have any questions just ask!
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm working on making my way into the technology sector. I've been studying to become a back end web developer, with an ultimate goal of becoming a freelance developer with the freedom to travel as I please. Recently I've become fairly proficient in PHP, SQL, JavaScript, Node.js, AWS, and the list keeps going. If you have any idea what I'm talking about, please let's nerd out together.
The first things people usually notice about me
It's always the eyes. One time when I was getting my braces adjusted at the orthodontist, one if the technicians called over all the other technicians around to stare at my eyes while I was stuck with spacers in my mouth. They then proceeded to argue about who's daughter I was going to date. Needless to say none of them got a chance.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I don't read as much as I would like to, but the few that I have and loved include Harry Potter, The Help, Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Hunger Games series, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series, Running with Scissors, A Game of Thrones (I am currently working on all of the books in A Song of Fire and Ice)

Shows: Isabel, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Hell on Wheels, Game of Thrones, American Horror Story, Wilfred, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, The Newsroom, True Blood, South Park, Family Guy, American Dad, Skins (UK version, obviously), Misfits, House, Grey's Anatomy, Dexter, Girls, House of Cards, Orange Is the New Black, and much much much more.

Music: Zoé, Bomba Estéreo, Hello Seahorse, Mala Rodríguez, Calle 13, Santigold, Arcade Fire, Black Keys, Wye Oak, Other Lives, the Strokes, Arcade Fire, Phantogram, Lana del Ray, the Naked and Famous, M83, St. Vincent, Metric, Gold Panda.

Movies: La Piel Que Habito, El Labrinto Del Fauno, Black Swan, A Beautiful Mind, 500 Days of Summer, Harry Potter, Silence of the Lambs, Avatar, Star Trek, Promethius, Mean Girls, the Devil Wears Prada, Pan's Labyrinth, American Psycho, American Hustle, X-Men, and more that I wish I could think of right now.
Six things I could never do without

- Easy access to nature (Greenbelt, Town Lake, etc.)
- Spotify
- Something to learn
- Close family and friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The origins of life, humanity, and society. Also how extremely odd almost all human behavior is.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends on the Friday. Sometimes it's downtown to have a particularly boozey night with friends, sometimes it's hanging out at a quiet bar having deep conversations. I could be staying in and recovering with some good pickings on Netflix or catching up on homework, much to my dismay.
You should message me if
You've gotten this far and think we'd be a good match!
The two of us
