Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm originally from NY but have now lived in the Bay Area much
longer than I did there. So I'd say I have an east coast mentality
with a west coast lifestyle. I enjoy the quick wit that comes with
the east coast mentality but love the west coast pace and
I love old movies (black and white is the best!) and reading. I
enjoy cycling and photography. I haven't traveled a lot but want to
do more in the future. I don't eat meat, but it's cool if you do,
as long as you don't center every meal around it.
I am humorous, original, unconventional, and open-minded.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as a technical writer, out of my home office, which is great
because I'm not into commuting. Once in a while my supervisor flies
me up to HQ in Montreal, which I enjoy because it's a great town,
with lots of groovy vegie restaurants. I love walking around cities
like San Francisco and Montreal because of the great scenery and
people-watching. I live in Berkeley, which has the nice cool
summers of SF without the fog.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Technical writing, which is good because that's what I do for a
living. I'm also a great appreciator of humor, and sometimes I'm
even funny myself!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love good writing, period. I especially like "reading"
audiobooks; currently listening to "Capital" by Piketty; not my
usual thing but this is important stuff. I read dead-trees books
too; recently picked up "In the Light of What We Know," which I'm
looking forward to reading.
I enjoy all kinds of movies except boring ones, but old
black-and-white ones are my favorite. I like most kinds of music,
particularly soundtracks and college rock-type music, but music
doesn't play as large a role in my life as it used to. Foods:
anything vegetarian, the less animal-based the better.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Vegetarian restaurants, my friends, books, audiobooks, my bicycle,
the Bay Area.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How lucky I've been in life, overall, and how I can give some of it
back to the community. I'm a caring guy and do volunteer work that
helps people in a psychological way. I care deeply for the people
in my life and never take anyone for granted.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
seeing a movie at Pacific Film Archive, my favorite Berkeley haunt.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm somewhat introverted and am usually fine on my own, although I
do have reasonably good social skills. I do get lonely sometimes
and would love to have someone to share my life with.
