Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I would like someone to fall in love with me before I start snoring
like my dad.
I like to travel, and I think my ideal match would help me
advantage of double-occupancy rates. (Let's go to Antarctica,
China, Jordan, Egypt and sail the Baltic Sea.)
I play piano, work in advertising, do improv sometimes, write for
money and for not money, have published 2 books that you could buy.
I love exploring, and taking walks with coffee, and it would be
great to have a cute guy buddy for all of it.
I worry sometimes that people think "Long Island City" is far away
just because of its name. For me it's 2 N/Q train stops out of
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working in advertising, making music and writing jokes for other

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I spend a lot of time thinking about

mind, so that future me would choose now as a good moment to come
back to...but future me never comes. One day. One day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
