Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm more interested in hearing about you, but given that we've yet
to meet, let me share some of my background.
I grew up in Rhode Island. I love sailing and miss the the colors
of Fall and passion for Summer (that only comes from enduring a
long Winter) but I wouldn't trade it for the California
I was a philosophy and economics major at Tufts, then came west to
get my MBA at Stanford. I worked in SF after graduating and decided
I loved California too much to leave.
I'm caring, devoted, loyal, funny, ambitious, spontaneous, smart,
athletic, energetic, empathetic.. and I think you'll like me! If
"MBTI" rings a bell, I'm an ENTP who loves adventure and meeting
I'm hoping to find a similarly adventurous and social woman who
wants to share conversation, friends and travel - someone who loves
weekend adventures, casual dinners out and formal dinners at
I love to cook and especially to make the process a party. I love
entertaining friends (and friends who are entertaining..) I'd love
to introduce you to my friends and to meet the people in your life.
If we're committed to each other, I'd love to introduce you to my
daughters - some pretty awesome girls who have added so much to my
I recently launched a social media marketing company and am really
enjoying the experience. I've created it to be a "lifestyle
company" that enables me to travel and determine my own hours. It
seems to be working well so far so I look forward to sharing the
details and taking advantage of the opportunities it creates.
A few years back when I was trying to decide what I'd do for the
next decade, I was looking for opportunities to combine my love for
wine with business opportunity. I know I'm not a gifted winemaker
but found an opportunity to bridge my marketing experience with
wine and start a fun business. It's still a "side thing" but I was
recently granted a design patent, have completed all the licensing
and I'm 2-3 months from launching an "ultra-premium box wine"
company, Baux Wine. It's been a lot of fun getting the thing off
the ground and, if it all works as planned, I'd love take you to
Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles or wherever we decide is a good place to
look for the next wine for Baux Wine.
If you were smiling while you read this and you want to meet
someone with whom you can share a lot of fun times ahead, please do
more than just leave bread crumbs, reach out to me and let's grab a
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been lucky enough to see some success in the technology
industry over the past decade but I recently left my "9-5" role to
manage the fund raising process for some interesting start-ups.
It's a fun role that "pays the bills" but gives me plenty of free
time to launch my own business, a "premium box wine" brand, Baux
Wines, that you'll start seeing on the shelves of high-end markets
My career change was more of a "lifestyle decision" I made to
afford me more time with my three lovely daughters while they're
still young (7, 9 & 11). I share custody with my ex-wife, which
has worked great and opens up plenty of time for travel, wine
tasting and dating (which is why I'm here...)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Spontaneous plans, cooking and making my date laugh.
