Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Haven't been on here or updated this in a bit, seeing someone
seriously now, so now this profile is one of those borderline
creepster ones where we're looking at girls together. She and I are
looking for a girl who is down to have some fun, and everyone is
feeling it, see where that goes.
I'm happiest when driving down Highway 1 to Santa Cruz and then
setting up a tent at a campsite. I go from zero to beardly in 6.5
seconds. I enjoy banter, getting out to nature, and I'm still
pinching myself all the time since I finally moved back to the Bay
Area in July after 5 years in L.A. I'm more of a combination of
atheist and Jewish, in that I think god is silly, but I love
One of my best friends and his soon-to-be wife asked me to
officiate their wedding this June, so I'm now an ordained Dudeist
Priest because The Big Lebowski has its own fake religion. I am an
expert campfire-maker, I'm pretty good in the kitchen, and your mom
and her partner will love me if we date long enough to get there.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Biking around Oakland, winning trivia at Room 389 (it did happen
once, and it was glorious), and nostalgia tripping about Santa Cruz
or Jewish summer camp (they're really basically the same
I'm a Clinical Social Worker in SF on a team for clients with
really complex medical and mental health problems. I ran a homeless
intervention project in Santa Monica before that, and worked as the
mental health specialist in a homeless drop-in center in Venice
Beach before that. I find my work fascinating and fulfilling, and
it's easy to see how simple it would be for any one of us to end up
in those circumstances. I'm grateful for every moment that I have
the freedom and privilege to do what I want, so I'm kind of a
goofball most of the time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Walking through the Tenderloin, a toothless woman with an orange
soda mustache was passing by me and shouted, "What up, sexy bald!"
That and the beard, I suppose.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The music list is too long, but it's a lot of white people with
guitars (indie, new folk, old folk), stuff that some people still
call "alternative," even though it's mainstream now (Radiohead, The
Flaming Lips, Spoon), R&B like Aloe Blacc, and old school
hip-hop (Tribe, Pharcyde, etc.).
Louie, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Wire, Breaking Bad, Game of
Thrones, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, The Walking Dead, The
Daily Show, Mad Men, Girls (how do we feel about this show? Strong
female characters or more pixie manic dreamgirl male fantasy
archetypes? I remain undecided)
I was a vegetarian for 10 years, vegan for 1, and now I eat it all,
but still go meatless when I don't feel like clogging an artery
with bacony goodness.
A Confederacy of Dunces is my favorite novel, but Philip Roth is my
favorite writer (or maybe it's Hemingway? I go back and forth). I'm
currently reading the Game of Thrones (ASOIAF) books, because I
couldn't wait to see what happens on the show.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Mountains to hike
Bourbon and craft beer
Comedy to watch and listen to
A balance between affection and space
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
A combination of things that make me laugh- Louis CK, Jeff Garlin,
Doug Benson, Tig Notaro, etc., and the impermanence of all things-
it really helps me not internalize the shit at work.
Whether or not bulletproof coffee sounds good. It could be
disgusting or delicious, but it is definitely not going to be
somewhere in between, and I don't know if I want to know.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
One of three things: Low-key evening with friends and probably some
wine or bourbon at somebody's place, out for dinner and drinks, or
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm actually just six feet tall (not 6'1" like I listed), but I
found out that all the 5'9" dudes are lying and saying that they're
my height, so fuck that.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think it would be fun to get to know each other. You're not
offended by Cards Against Humanity. You'd rather be in a tent in
the woods than partying in Vegas, but you'd have fun in both
places. Bonus points if you have curly hair.
