Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved to New York because this city is unbelievably fun. I write
about sports for a living, and write about other things in my own
time. I taught English in France after graduating college.
I have an uncanny ability to laugh about anything, and I'm a strong
believer in food and sleep as the cure for everything.
I'm teaching myself harmonica at the moment. It's fun as
I'm originally from the Midwest, which probably makes me a nice

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, endearing sarcasm, foosball, shooting the shit about
nothing in particular.

Quick off the top of my head, otherwise this will get out of
Books: I think "Let Us Praised Famous Men" by James Agee is the
best thing I've ever read. "Catch-22" is a close second. I have old
I take recommendations very seriously, so if you tell me to read it
Movies: "Apocalypse Now" is at the top, but "The Big Lebowski"
makes me feel good every time I watch it. Does everybody say that?
I hope not.
Music: I'm all over the place. I'll rock out whenever I can, I
suppose. Pavement, The White Stripes, Radiohead, Destroyer, the
Modern Lovers, LCD Soundsystem, Modest Mouse and, uh, Spoon. That's
a good list.
Food: I'm French so I'm biased that way. Also love Cajun, Thai,
Indian ... I'll do spicy any time.
Standup comedy cuts right to the core of me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'll try: My laptop, college football, beer, extended bouts of

when I need it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I'm doing next, anywhere between two minutes and 20 years from

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I got a bean stuck in my ear in 6th grade and had to go to the
doctor to get it out. In a drawer, he had an envelope filled with
other objects he had removed from the ears of children. Among the
objects: A quarter and a gummy bear. I told the doctor he was odd.

"You like me" seems like the wrong answer to this, but I don't
think anything else really works. I like people, and the more I get
