My self-summary
Hi there! The name's Matt, I'm a native New englander and a recent law school graduate. I can be pretty sarcastic and geeky. I enjoy going out for trivia or making a fool out of myself at karaoke on occasion but I can have just as much fun at home with a few close friends. I enjoy cooking and I used to write creatively but law school kinda put a stop to that. I also enjoy going to independent theaters and checking out local bands. I consider myself a Secular Humanist, a Feminist, a LGBT ally and am generally passionate about equal rights

When I was a kid I was punished multiple times for reading because I would read past my bedtime and during school. My love for books hasn't changed.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a recent law grad I also just started a full time position working with kids which so far is pretty rewarding
I’m really good at
Being accidentally witty. Also I enjoy cooking and while I'm getting better I think the ahem incident with the fire extinguisher keeps me from saying I'm good at it.

*Got past the fire extinguisher thing. I'm a decent cook
The first things people usually notice about me
Asked a friend and she said my dry sense of humor
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite books are usually sci fi and fantasy but I will read just about anything. I enjoyed Heroes Die, Kushiels Dart, A Song of Ice and Fire, as well as some comics, This is just a short list I LOVE books, I must have been the only kid to ever get in trouble for reading.

Movies- I have incredibly broad tastes in movies. I have soft spots for sci fi/fantasy and oldschool horror though. Some faves are Blade Runner, Fight Club, American History X, Sin City, LoTR, Se7en, Batman Begins and Dark Knight, Serenity, Star Wars (4-6), The Secret of Nimh, Miyazaki Films etc.

Music- lots of alternative and progressive with my overall favorite being Tool and The Smashing Pumpkins. I've been listening to a lot of Passion Pit, Walk the Moon, and Childish Gambino. Hopsin is probably the best Rapper I've ever heard. Lately I'm on this nostalgic pop punk from the early 2000's kick. Dammit Taking Back Sunday will I ever get over you.

Food- I love food in general. Off the top of my head I don't like tomatoes or sushi but thats about it. Oh and I love spicy food. I actually once tried a ghost chili. That was a terrible idea.

TV- Recent faves are Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Community, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, & Doctor Who. Things I have on dvd or just still love- Angel, Buffy, Firefly, Farscape, Futurama, Avatar tLA, Berserk, Fullmetal Alchemist, Cowboy Bebop.

Videogames- Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Psychonauts, The Legacy of Kain, Metal Gear Solid, Chrono Trigger, Earthbound, Breath of Fire 3, Secret of Mana, Bastion, The Walking Dead. Mostly RPG's and story based stuff.
The six things I could never do without
A book
Public Transportation
Access to the internet
Videogames
Money
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends what I feel like doing. Out drinking with my law school friends, playing videogames with my roommates, screwing around on the internet, and at either the Brattle or Coolidge Corner theater seeing something different are all valid answers.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I wish there were a socially acceptable male form of high heels so it would be less weird for me to date taller women.

My first fictional crush was on Daria from MTV when I was like 12. I'm not quite sure what this says about me but I'm sure its something odd.
You should message me if
If whenever you see the two of us bar on profiles you also automatically think "we can make it if we try". If you like what you read and would like to get to know me better or we have something in common. If you are as geeky as I am.
