Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm from a rural town in Rhode Island. My parent's house stands on
the grounds of the 19th century town poorhouse which was also
apparently a slaughterhouse because my sister and I discovered
several cow-shaped "dinosaurs" when we were kids.
My mom's side is 100% French-Canadian. All the old people on that
side would immediately switch to French as soon as they got
together even though none of them were born in Quebec. My
Gram/Gramps, Nana/Paps were called Memere and Pepere. I had a great
uncle named Onesime (ooh-nuh-zem). We called him Uncle Lou. I speak
all of five words of French. I took five years of Latin.
I love baseball. I'm a Red Sox fan.
I love the Patriots. Tom Brady is perfect.
I love making beer. I started a couple of years ago and soon I had
thrown out my kitchen table and installed shelves to house all the
bottles and buckets. It's a great feeling you get when people
honestly and enthusiastically enjoy something you boiled up in your
700 square foot apartment.
I love the Beatles. At my dad's house when I was a kid, we would
clear the coffee table out of the living room and put on records
and dance. From as far back as I can remember, the combination of
John Lennon and Paul McCartney's voice in harmony has sent a shiver
up my spine. If you want to convince me there's a benevolent God,
start with I Don't To Spoil the Party and end with Happiness is a
I am the only boy out of four. My sisters and I are very different
but very close.
I love being an uncle, but that's easy because my nieces and nephew
are the cutest of all time. I will fight you.
I studied creative writing in college. I was also in bands. So of
course I now buy chemicals for a wet wipe factory.
ISFP if but barely I & S if that means anything.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I make wet wipes. I am in charge of purchasing and maintaining over
a million dollars of wet wipe-makin' inventory. Also I recently
started volunteering for a non-profit named after a famous
lightning-scarred wizard and another that is too new to go deeper
into but it's going to be intense and hopefully rewarding.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making beer. Not really good, but I'm getting better all the time.
Giving family and friends sound and sober advice. Excitedly
interrupting you and eagerly waiting for you to interrupt me back.
Always wanting to play you a song. I'm a decent fingerpicker and my
voice has its moments.Here's me:
