Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm moving back to southern California after four years away in
Colorado, the east coast, and the CO Rocky Mountains (near Vail for
I like to think of myself as a Jack of All Trades. . .But maybe
sometimes I'm just a Jack-ass of All Trades -- When I'm around
family and friends I can be pretty goofy.
I like and I'm good at what I do professionally (and
un-professionally) but there's always plenty more to learn and my
life is made richer by the people around me and the experiences I

your butt look fat), be nice to other people (unless they're just

don't want to spend the rest of eternity with the people from Bible

realities of life. I think it's important to keep dreams like world
peace alive, but I think simple, everyday things like putting your

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Some people (my kind of people) notice that I'm not being serious

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to keep our country from succumbing to the English model of
society, that ants are, collectively, smarter than humans (Ever
seen ants get in a traffic jam), and why it is that there seem to
be a fair number of attractive, interesting women here that I have
yet to run into while out and about the city.
Why my brain keeps interpreting OK Cupid as "OK Stupid."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
