Alright . . .i'm going to give this online dating thing one more
shot. . . I've been in the bay area for almost 6 years. Since
moving to the US at the age of 10, I have lived in CT, upstate New
York, Washington DC, Los Angeles and then finally San
I was a political field organizer since college until i settled
down and decided that San Francisco was where i was going to be. .
. and found a job that didn't end after the next election!
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a political advertising firm - my job entails managing
the print production, making sarcastic comments in staff meetings,
visiting my coworkers to discuss things not at all related to work,
and complaining when we run out of junk food!
Not to reveal too much personal history - but after years of being
overweight, i took up marathon running a few years ago and finished
my 3rd Marathon last December in Hawaii. Yes - its absolutely crazy
and makes no sense - but at some point over the past few years -
this became my idea of a good time.
I’m really good at
Doing impressions of people/characters.
Cooking (so people tell me)
Finding new ways to use unreasonable amounts of peanut butter to
enhance my food/snacks. . . and finding new combinations including
peanut butter (hint: nutella is involved)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty tall. . .and handsome (well, i think so) ... but
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: The Big Lebowski, Gladiator, Dogma, Run Fatboy Run. . and
Books: Fast Food Nation, Sex Drugs and Coco Puffs, The Haj (by Leon
Uris) . . .and not sure this really counts, but its been a big part
of my life the past few years - "Marathon - You Can Do It" by Jeff

League, Happy Endings and more .. .
Music: The Grateful Dead, Green Day, Phish, Bob Dylan and

The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Deciding where I want to travel to next and what marathon or half
marathon i could do there to justify the trip. I also geek out
about how fast i'd need to train to race at various times . . .
okay that really belongs in the "most private thing i'm willing to
admit" section. Now the rest of what i think about a lot . . . well
. . . you'll just have to ask ;).
On a typical Friday night I am
Chilling at home, probably watching a movie and resting up for a
Saturday morning long run.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can spend hours playing backgammon on my cell phone!
You should message me if
if you feel like it. . . seriously.
