Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am me. That's about the best way to describe me. One of a kind,
the best kind there is. I'm nerdy; the kind that gets hooked on
numbers and figuring out how things work. You have a question about
something seemingly innocuous? I'll be busy figuring it out for the
rest of the day.
I think the perfect Sunday morning sipping a cup of coffee and
catching up on the news. Followed by an omelette from scratch. Oh,
and bacon. You can't have a Sunday without bacon.
I like to try new restaurants and am a huge fan of diners and
coffee shops. I cook to relax and some of my favorites are chili,
mac'n'cheese, spaghetti w/ vodka sauce, and the list goes on. I
will opt for bottled tomato sauce or salad dressings, but that's
because it's cheaper and far easier. However, if you want to try my
homemade tomato sauce, you won't be disappointed. Lately, I’ve been
getting into barbqueing. Not just grilling, which by the way is
pretty much the best way to cook burgers, but smoking meat. 10
hours of tending the fire and out comes the most amazing pulled
I've lived in three of the fours corners in the lower 48 and while
DC is a close runner-up, New England will always have a special
place in my heart. Nothing can replace Fall when the leaves turn in
New England or Maine lobster.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After 10 years in the Navy, I'm free and starting the next phase of
I crossfit several days a week and despite all of the cheat meals I
love to indulge in, I try to eat pretty clean. I give my dog lots
of attention including weekly trips to the dog park so she can run
around properly. Other than that, I'm starting a new job soon and
enjoying every minute of civilian life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Distilling dozens of similar recipes to their common ingredients
then making an amazing dish of my own variation. You want to know
what makes mac and cheese taste amazing? Because I know.
Oh, and I can have a pretty offensive sense of humor. If you set
the bar, I'll probably try to one-up you.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm completely addicted to family/kids' computer animated movies by
Pixar, Disney, and Sony. Monsters, Inc., Kung Fu Panda, Despicable
Me, How to Train Your Dragon... all goodies. But, I also couldn’t
do without shows like Futurama, American Dad, Sherlock, New Girl,
or Battlestar Galactica.
I’m also getting caught up on all of the young adult books being
turned into movies. I feel like I have an obligation to know what’s
actually going on instead of being led around by a director’s
interpretation. That said, I couldn’t get through Harry Potter. JK
Rowling does not have the best story telling powers in my opinion.
But, The Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere? Awesome story.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good friends, good food, and my dog. I'm pretty sure I don't need
anything more than that.
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 out at a bar with friends or at home cooking up something
delicious. I love cooking for more than one.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I’m kind of a coffee snob. It’s true… I heart my cappuccinos and
look for organic, locally roasted beans because they come in so
many different varieties and flavors.
Oh, and I'm trans. I know that's not everyone's cup of tea, but
it's just one facet of my life.
