Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am generally an independent person. I like to sit on my porch in
the evening and look up at the sky when the sun is setting and take
it all in. I think about doing the same thing when I was a kid and
how I really haven’t changed, how the world hasn’t changed
Sometimes, the best part of my day is the bike ride to and from
work. I like the freedom and risk of biking in the city and
carrying all that I need on my bike rack. I like Cambridge and the
Boston area because of all the interesting events going on and the
variety of people that live here.
When I can I play piano or guitar with friends. I was kind of a
child prodigy at the piano back in the day when I had time to
practice. Since then I've played for church and weddings
occasionally. I also have a band that I jam with a few times a
month. Playing in the evening is a great way to relax.
Being a musician, I can be passionate. And passions can be
constructive or destructive. Life does have its dramas, but I try
not to live in one.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Life is an adventure! Every day is a gift. Every moment an
opportunity for something new. But then sleep is good too.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I cook a lot. At least once a day. I'm a big fan of organic and
shop the local farmers markets when I can. I have a fondness for
ginger, turmeric, and kale. I cook for my friends often.
I can make some people laugh hysterically for no reason. I'd be
talking with someone about something philosophical or ordinary and
they'd start laughing. It mostly happens when I'm not trying to be

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If it's been a busy week, I will crash, sleep late Saturday morning
and do something the following evening instead. If I pace myself
well, then maybe hanging out with friends, jamming on guitars,
seeing a movie, or just doing nothing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been away from the social scene a bit since one of my parents
became ill and I had to take care of them. Things are more stable
now and so I have more time to socialize.
I post this just to show that I know how to prioritize my life when
others are in need. It's not all about me.
