Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm always reluctant to write these sorts of things because I feel
that no matter what I put down whoever reads it will think it's
been embellished. So... I'll just stick to the basics. My twenty
year marriage ended about a while back and I'm starting to feel
that pull towards the opposite sex again. I love movies, mostly
foreign and indy and my musical tastes range from Baroque to the
Dandy Warhols. I like cats more than dogs. I love baseball and
don't really follow any other sport. As a young man I spent a year
living in Switzerland and doing some traveling around Europe which
included the USSR so I was able to view the other side of the Iron
Curtain without the constant drumbeat of propaganda. My conclusion
was that people are people no matter where they are born. I have a
fairly warped sense of humor and can quote the Big Lebowski almost
verbatim. I am a yellow dog democrat. My biggest claim to fame is
that I once met the Three Stooges. I think The Wire is the greatest
TV show ever made but that it's impossible to name the greatest
book or movie. I still laugh like an idiot when I watch either Bugs
Bunny, The Marx Brothers or Laurel & Hardy even when I've seen
all the films a hundred times. When I was a kid I could look out of
my bedroom window and see the top of the Empire State Building off
in the distance. I've lived in DC for most of my life but still
consider myself a New Yorker.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a restaurant lifer, forty years in the business and almost all
of that as a chef. I gave up on kitchen work a couple of years ago
when the hours finally got to be too much and took a job in sales.
I still have two kids at home and between work and my life as a
single father I don't have much of a social life but I am always up
for a movie or ball game when time permits
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
A veritable font of information on American History, cooking and
other useless facts. I can make a homemade Bialy that would make
your old Jewish Grandmother cry.

I love foreign cinema and indy films much more than any of the
blockbuster movies showing in theaters. I usually have to wait for
netflix to release my type of films before I can see them. I love
spicy ethnic foods like Ethiopian, Indian and Latin. My musical
tastes run way off the radio dial. I love lesser known indy bands
like The Brian Jonestown Massacre and old psychedelic music from
the 60's but I also love Baroque like Palestrina and Pachebel. I
read lots of historical fiction and mysteries, Alan Furst is a
favorite. I'm a big fan of the HBO series The Wire and Curb Your
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My kids, good food, my DVR, baseball, women, olive oil and I'll
also throw in a shout out for Dr Bronner's Magic Soap, that stuff
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You enjoy sitting in the stands at the ballpark on a summer
afternoon or watching HBO on a Sunday night. If you like the Hudson
River School, Vermeer or Martin guitars, think the Rolling Stones
should have quit after Let It Bleed and Dylan should have hung it
up with Blonde on Blonde
