Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am from California, the Bay Area. I have a huge family out there
that is incredibly loving and supportive. I know enough to know
that I will never take my family for granted; I am very lucky to
have them. I have a niece and nephew that make me miss CA more than
ever. I moved to Chicago almost seven years ago for school. I love
this city and it makes me smile to see the skyline almost everyday
riding the brown line downtown to work.
I find humor in everything. My childhood was filled with laughter
and I keep my adult life the same way. I like to keep those around
me laughing, too, though it may take some time for that side in me
to come out.
Dogs make me very happy. My ex has "custody" of our six year old
Cairn Terrier. I miss him and I am always incredibly happy to see
him. I don't treat dogs like people, but I consider them
I keep myself very busy in a lot of different ways, especially
spending time with my friends. I am fiercely loyal and devoted to
my small family of friends. Right now (and usually), my close
friends are women.
In the last few years, I have embraced my true nerd-nature, I like
comics, Trek and Wars (yes, I can like both!), anything by Whedon,
RPGs, science (trivial and practical verities), and many other
I am a terrible speller; however, I am a stickler about use of the
English language. I can see past improper use by others (which
means I will notice it and think about it a lot, just not say
anything), but not for myself.
My friends are getting me to like beer more, but I am a gin and
I am obsessed with coffee. I have worked in the coffee world for a
decade and I can teach you how to make perfect rosettes and hearts,
the finer parts of tasting and pairing (especially espresso), and I
can talk for hours (with a grin on my face) about how caffeine
works physiologically. When I see a beautiful extraction, It makes
me really happy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Loving it. I am really enjoying being single and discovering
myself. This year has held major changes for me and has not for one
second been dull. I live alone and love the time that I have to
After studying theater with a concentration in directing, I started
a theater company that is still running. We are young but
dedicated. I spend my free time working on the operations of the
company, be it season planning, fundraising, directing, accounting,
etc. The theater is where I want to spend my life.
This year I have written several short graphic novels. One of them
is being drawn by a friend of mine. When I have extra free time, I
spend it on writing.
I’m really good at

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
These days, people notice the beard. It's new-ish for me. Next, I
suppose they notice my quite and introverted demeanor, that, over
time, gives way to a dry sense of humor.
