Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My previous summary was a little lackluster, so I figured I owed it
to you, dear reader, to elaborate a little more and perhaps entice
you to converse. Or maybe I just wanted to talk about myself and be
self absorbed for a little bit. Either way, you're reading it.
Otherwise you wouldn't even know I wrote that you're reading
I'm from Maryland, born and raised on the Chesapeake Bay,
transplanted to York since 2004. It's been a while, but I'll always
feel most at home on the water. I'm an artist, specifically an
animator, trying to make a mark on the world. Life likes to throw
wrenches in my plans but it's not going to stop me.
I'm a bit awkward with people until I get to know them. After that
awkward phase I'm sarcastic and a smart ass but I'm also pretty
empathetic. I like to crack stupid jokes that nobody gets, laugh at
things most people won't notice, and generally be goofy with my
I'm a gamer, though not as much as I used to be. I have pretty much
every current console save the Xbox One. I miss the days when Rock
Band was the go-to social game. Cards Against Humanity makes for a
suitable alternative though.
I'd just as soon go out exploring a new place as I would chill
inside and watch movies. I love being in cities with so many people
buzzing around, but I also love being far out in nature far from
So what am I doing on here?
I'm trying to find some new people that I really connect with. I'm
a good few years out of college now and it's just harder to meet
like minded people. I don't know if I'd say I'm actively seeking a
relationship, but I'd certainly like to go on some dates and see
what comes of it.
As far as relationships go, while we're on the subject, I like
women who are independent, have their own goals, but still enjoy
spending time with their significant other. Someone who enjoys art,
games, movies, and the outdoors. Someone who will challenge me
intellectually and broaden my horizons. I want a partner in life,
more or less. I don't want to be the one to make all the decisions
Bonus points for big green eyes and long red hair.
I'm starting to believe such a creature is akin to a unicorn, only
spoken of in legend and fairy tales. Yet I search.
But hey, I'll chat with anyone so long as you have more to say than
"Hi" before you delete your account.
Congratulations! You made it through the summary! Go you!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

Serving up coffee and doing freelance to make it by.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being a good friend, talking, art, sleeping. Human things.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm not illiterate, I just haven't really gotten into any books for
a long time. .
Some of my favorite movies include:
-Children of Men
-The LEGO Movie
-The Shawshank Redemption
And plenty of others. I have a very broad range of tastes when it
comes to movies. Awful horror movies are the best, too, just for
the sheer laugh-factor.
I have kind of an obsession with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If
I can't geek out over it with you, you might get the shits of me
As far as shows go, I don't actively watch much anymore. Most of
what I do watch is on Syfy for background noise. A few of the shows
I do keep up with though:
-Agents of SHIELD
I will talk your ear off about movies or shows that I like.
I have a broad range of tastes in music but most of my library is
rock centric. If I had to pick some bands out of a hat, they'd
-The Classic Crime
-Poets of the Fall
And food? I love food.
I really enjoy trying new things, especially when it comes to
different cultural dishes that stand apart from your typical
American cuisine. Sushi is always great. Mexican is among my
favorites. Burritos and tacos are a comfort food.
I grew up on the Chesapeake close to Baltimore, so it goes without
saying that crabs are another favorite. Summer isn't summer without
a bushel of crabs.
It should be worth noting that I'm also a gamer. About the only
console I don't own is an Xbox One. Some of my recent favorites
include The Last of Us, Mario Kart 8, and Destiny. The Mass Effect
trilogy holds a special place in my heart, but Chrono Trigger will
probably always top my list.
If you love games, we'll get along great.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Pretty sure my blood to coffee ratio is pretty skewed in favor of
the latter. So... Coffee.
Being a smart-ass is pretty essential to my existence. So that
People. I'm an extrovert by nature.
Days that are warm enough to wear shorts and t-shirts but not so
hot that you're sweating from stepping out the door.
Probably the internet. How would you read this otherwise?
And burritos. Which is a 7th thing, but I don't think it counts
since burritos are basically a requirement for life along with air
and water, right?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whatever other people think about, I'm sure. Life, where things are
going, if they're going the way I want them, if I can change it if
they aren't. Friends, family, maybe you? Animation ideas, things
I'd like to sketch, skills I'd like to improve. Food.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday is just another day of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I wouldn't say it's entirely private, but life threw me some
curveballs in the past 12 months or so and forced me to rent out a
room at my Mom's. That coupled with having just gotten laid off
towards the end of May puts me in a rather frustrating situation
for someone years out of college who had been establishing his
It's a temporary inconvenience, but some people can't seem to look
past it. So here it is out in the open in case you're one of those
people, that way we're not wasting each other's time.
