Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a hopeless romantic, a self-proclaimed nerd, singer/actor,
wanna be chef/baker, a good listener, and do my best to be a good
friend. I'm kind of an old fashioned guy at heart, opening doors,
pulling out chairs, often wearing a tie, and minding my p's and q's
in public...or rather try to? Haha.
I originally hail from MD (DC Metro area), went to school in Ohio
(OSU), and now reside in NYC. I can be a dork most of the time,
whether it be about music, theatre, food, or comic books! I LOVE
cooking and entertaining (just so satisfying to serve good food to
friends), and just enjoying life as much as I can. I like to stay
active, though I'll be the first to say I'm no athlete (as hard as
I try to be).
What else can I say to summarize...? I mean, I've got to leave
something to talk about. So shoot me a message! :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just finished traveling the world as a singer on a luxury cruise
line for the last few years.The awesome experience allowed me to
see places I never thought I would! Some of the countries I saw
included Japan, China, Vietnam, Australia, Portugal, Spain, Italy,
Greece, Monaco, Israel, the U.K., the Netherlands, Germany and
France. :) I love traveling, but never hurts to find a reason to
stay home, or even better, someone to travel with. ;)
I studied operatic voice and graduated from The Ohio State
University, and have since moved to NYC to pursue a wonderfully
stable career in performing! When I'm not working at that, I'm
working some unsatisfying "survival" job, but hey, I've never had a
problem paying my dues. I've been out there working for a living
since I was 14. :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, cooking, eating what I cook, Singing (or at least I hope
so), smiling through awkward situations, and knowing how to laugh
no matter what life throws at you.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile. Had braces for 4 years so I'm obligated by my parents to
flash em, dimple and all. :)
Also, my hair when longer attracts attention, it turns into a mass
of curly cues alla Shirley Temple.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm pretty much up for all kinds of books, movies, shows, music and
food. I do have a particular fondness for old movies and musicals,
like Breakfast at Tiffany's, Houseboat, Singin' in the Rain, and
other movies like that. Shows? I love Modern Family, Community,
Fringe, ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, 30 Rock.... the first X-Men animated
series. The nerd in me also loves Dr. Who and Sherlock (if only
they produced more than 3 episodes a season)!
With music, I listen to everything from classical and opera, to
indie and pop radio, it's really hard for me to list specific
artists and composers... too many. I grew up listening to
everything like Motown, disco, gospel music, and so on, so I try to
stay open minded. Though for musical theatre, I will say my
favorite composers are Stephen Sondheim, Adam Guettel, Michael John
LaChiusa, and Jason Robert Brown's older material.
Food... I'm a foodie, and always willing to try something new. I
cook all kinds myself, but I can get all traditional and whip up a
traditional Puerto Rican meal. I also LOVE Thai food and sushi.
Momofuku is my food religion.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
-friends/family (my friends have kind of become my family)
-iPhone (music is always playing)
-favorite chef's knife
-glasses or contacts (literally can't do without, I'm kinda blind
-food/water (kinda essential right?)
-a comfy sweater....unless it's summer, then this changes to shorts
and a tank top. Especially in the city!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I could try to be profound and say something about contemplating
the complexities of life... but I guess for me, I try to think
about good things in the future, the things I look forward to?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Really depends on the Friday, and who is involved. On any given
Friday I can be found:
-hanging out with friend(s) in a casual environment
-hanging out with friend(s) in a restaurant/bar/club
-Spending a night in either alone or with a friend, making dinner,
watching movies, drinking wine, and so on.
Really, I'm a homebody at heart, so few things will beat a night
in, cooking dinner and watching a movie with someone special, or
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am... a comic book expert. I know, silly right? I have retained a
massive amount of useless knowledge concerning the Marvel comics
universe and some of the DC universe. Yeah... judge if you like.
Haha! Besides that, I'm a pretty open person. Just ask.
You should message me if
