Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm just a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit. I moved to
NYC last year for Grad school, and so far I'm really enjoying it
here. Most of my days are spent studying or trying to squeeze in a
workout at the end of the day. I love to stay active and make a
point to work out at least 3 times a week. For cardio, I am
addicted to playing racquetball. Unfortunately, I've had to give
that up since moving to the city and settle for playing paddleball
in my apartment ;) If you play racquetball and can bring me along,
I'll most likely go ahead and make you my consigliere : )
Education is a priority in my life, whether it's formal or
informal. Regardless of whether or not you are in school, I think
it is important to always have something to work toward and always
have a goal for personal improvement (this could be cooking,
learning a new project, reading a book, whatever). It is important
for me to be around someone who is self motivated as it makes me
want to better myself.
The outdoors are something I find enjoyable, along with anything to
do with nature and science. I grew up boating and fishing, although
I can't do that now in NYC. I also enjoy getting out to check out
farmers markets on the weekends.
Although I am fine with going to bars, I prefer to limit my
drinking to once every week or so. I find that it just takes too
much time out of my life, (mostly the following day). I would
rather stay in to cook with friends or go out to a
dinner/show/farmers market, etc. I will admit that I love craft
beer, so I have a hard time turning down a good IPA.
I really enjoy getting out and trying to see new places. It might
be in the same town or a road trip away, but it is always an
adventure to me! My most recent adventure was in NYC where in one
day I: walked 200 city blocks including central park, toured the
Met, hung out in the ETSY headquarters, played in an underground
ping-pong bar, ate Sichuan pepper for the first time (google it),
and checked out a Burlesque show!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently attending dental school in New York City. It has proven
to be much busier than I would like, but I'm getting better at
balancing school with other activities.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am really good with anything that is hands on and "do it
yourself". I've done a huge variety of projects in my time. My
favorite hobby is leather-working. Some of my projects include a
hand sewn briefcase, wallets, purses, belts, etc. In the past I've
done a lot of audio electronics and random crafts (I built a Rubiks
cube using only dice and magnets). I am always looking for that
Also, (I don't mean to brag here) I am a really, really
ridiculously good cook. I enjoy making everything and I'm damn good
at anything: BBQ, gourmet pizzas, Thai, French, Italian, Southern
food, etc. Did I mention that I am a foodie? And, I roast my own
coffee : )

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Really good food. I'm always looking exciting food around NYC.
Although I am a foodie at heart, I watch what I eat for the
majority of the week so I can splurge on the weekends.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching Sex and The City while eating a quart of Haagen Dazs with
cotton balls wedged between my toes

I have a moderate stutter. But, it doesn't affect my ability to
have a great conversation. I have known people for months before
they picked up on my stutter. People typically only pick up on it
in situations where I stutter more frequently, such as talking on
the phone or when introducing myself.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...if you are a foodie and/or chef. My favorite activity is getting
together with good company to enjoy good food. I would prefer to
stay in and cook a nice meal together, but I also love to go out
and discover lesser-known restaurants that serve great food.
...if you consider yourself sarcastic, light-hearted and try your
best to be positive in all situations. Also, please have a friendly
and warm personality towards everyone. I'm really impressed with
people who are courteous to others.
...if you can have a conversation outside of sports and/or T.V.
shows. I still enjoy watching sports and TV, but I'd much rather be
talking about a book you read, a weird science article, something
new you learned, a hobby of yours; anything with some substance.
