Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've traveled around the world to more than 20 different countries,
and yet I feel like I'm just dipping my feet into the pond.
Learning about people's lives, what they're interested in, where
they came from, how they're different, all of these things

yoga, capoeira, and really anything that involves spending time
outside in the sun.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
• Ex-Machina - Loved it. Thought provoking dialogue, suspense and
even occasional humor. Went into this movie completely blind and I
was blown away.
• Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels - With witty banter and
hilarious dialogue, the movie takes you through a series of
unexpected events that has the feel of a heist movie (think Oceans
• The Tiger - A gripping story that paints a picture of a cunning
predator's relationship with man and nature in a remote logging
town known to few.
• Catch-22 - The juxtaposition of the harsh realities of war and
humor worked surprisingly well. This book was the book that showed
me that written form humor is possible.
The six things I could never do without

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On a night in you might find me sampling craft beers and
socializing over board-games with friends. When I'm feeling a bit
more adventurous you could find me at a local bar dancing!
