Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello, prospective gentlemen of OKC. Welcome to my profile.
You know that small town John Mellencamp sang of in "Little Pink
Houses"? Thats the kinda place I was raised. And, though I have
very fond memories of my Kansas upbringing, the truth is that I
always longed to escape. So, I scratched and clawed my way through
various rungs of higher education until I did just that.
Fast forward eight years. San Francisco has been so good to me.
Professionally, I've reached nearly all of my goals. Personally,
I've cultivated an incredible group of nutjob, intelligent,
severely witty friends. I have no reason to complain.
But, as time goes by, I'm beginning to realize that I need to grow.
I'm ready for a relationship but it has to be the right one. And I
have no idea how to go about finding it but this is a good start,
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Gratefully, I've got quite a bit of time in my life to fill with
activities of my choosing. Traveling is always on my radar.
Recently I've gotten involved in some overseas medical mission work
that I'd love to continue - I'm happiest when I've got something
interesting on the horizon. Lately, a new addition to my household,
a rescue dog is taking up quite a bit of my time. Find me in Alamo
Square with a shy terrier.
On a daily basis, though, aren't we all just striving for some kind
of balance? I'm still working on that equation but, for me, it
involves work, clowning around with friends (yes, clowning),
staying physically active and working towards goals. The goals
change all the time and vary greatly in immediacy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Smash Ball on the beach!

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Apparently my laugh is very unique.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite book in the past couple of years has been Frazen's
"Freedom". Wow. I loved Patti Smith's "Just Kids". And I'm a sucker
for any down and out memoir I can get my hands on.
I have a couple of shows programmed into my DVR: Mad Men, Chelsea
Lately, Parks and Rec, 60 Minutes, Downton Abbey (best soap opera
ever), Game of Thrones, Homeland. And, yeah, I loved Breaking Bad.
Basically, I love to binge on great TV. No shame!
I don't know what I love most about the movie theater: the popcorn
or the films - of which I'm easily entertained.
Music is a big deal for me. My references are NPR music, pitchfork,
friends, and Spotify. I've gone to Coachella for the past couple of
years and I love it. I also catch live shows quite often. I tend to
gravitate towards bearded, emotional rock groups but I dabble in
pop and dance.
Over the past few years, I've been teaching myself how to cook with
mixed results. I love to dine at fabulously opulent restaurants
(mostly with a certain group of friends) but I try not to take
"foodiness" too seriously.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My space. Love my home.
iPhone (just being honest)
My kitty of 12 years
Friends and family (duh)
My new rescue dog, Flo
A good "burner" at the gym
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where shall I eat and drink tonight and with who?
How can I do my job better?
Should I go to the gym now, later, or not ever?
Lately, I hope my doggie is okay at home while I'm at work.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hopefully at an establishment with very tasty cocktails. Or, really
nice wine. Or, an amazing selection of beers on tap.
But, if its been a long week, forget it.
You should message me if
