Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a California guy. Going to a preppy college on the East Coast
and living abroad has only reinforced that. I wear flip-flops with
a puffy jacket in the winter. I surf. I climb. I voted for Obama,
but I'm a fan of globalization. My family has a vineyard. I could
eat Mexican food or sushi for every meal. I do not, however, own a
Prius. I have a 4x4 Tacoma pickup with a shell for sleeping
Back to SF after 2 years abroad, and feeling good about it.
I'm always trying to fill my weekends up, usually with outdoor
pursuits. I love a girl (woman - do you prefer to be called a
woman?) who can get a little dirty, laugh things off, go with the
flow, and is filled with a need to constantly be doing and learning
I have to be honest - if you would rather sleep in and have a
fantastic brunch and then enjoy a nice cocktail by the pool than be
out climbing, surfing, sailing, hiking, running or doing something
else that takes up most of the day on the weekends, we will be

as many people as possible and just grab a coffee or go for a

for Wes Anderson movies and/or It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is
a good starting point.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Are you ready for it? Working on a startup to help people with
their bucket lists. Yep, I'm a Bay Area stereotype. After years of
banking and consulting, I'm taking two years to take a crack at my
own business. Meanwhile, climbing in Yosemite and working on the
family vineyard on weekends. Also stereotypical.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Filling out profiles. Clearly. That and being modest. Oh, also:
staying positive, even when it means making light of serious
situations. And I make a good avocado shake. You should try it.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either driving to Tahoe/Yosemite or up to no good getting drinks
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I embrace my inner guido from time to time and watch Jersey Shore.
It reminds me of my cousins in Rhode Island.
