My self-summary
Hi. I'm Matt.

Soft-spoken but opinionated, I straddle introvert and extrovert. I am shy in front of new people, but when the moment's right I can be comfortable in the spotlight. I'm nerdy and cerebral, and I like movies, baseball, and 90s music.

I like food a lot, but I'm no snob. I have my reservations about Yelp, but I'll still use it for suggestions. When I cook for myself, chances are good I've thrown together a spinach salad and a grilled cheese sandwich.

I returned to SF two years ago after spending a couple years in Samoa in the Peace Corps. Even though I've returned to the corporate world and happy with my apartment, it still feels a little strange to be back in America.
What I’m doing with my life
Work-wise, I'm a data analyst at a mobile advertising network. Outside of work, I'm a runner (recently ran the Portland marathon) and a reader (current book: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy by John le Carré).

Out at happy hour with work friends, or getting a bite to eat at Nopa, Little Star, My Tofu House, or the like.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not a big fan of the letter 'B'.
You should message me if
you are strong and opinionated. I'm looking for my complement; not my fraternal twin. I am looking for someone who shares my values but has a life of her own. It's cool if you're into makeup and high heels, but I'm interested in what's below the surface. Mostly, I am looking for someone to challenge me and then spoon.
