Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved to San Diego fourteen years ago from Washington, DC. My
intent was to move here for a one or two year adventure and then go
back to my East Coast roots, but I found that I didn't want to
leave. Having grown up in the NY / NJ area, being in a place as
laid back as San Diego was a really nice change. The pace here and
the ocean help remind me to keep things in perspective and stay
balanced. After living here for so long now, I've got an amazing
group of friends that mean a lot to me. So really the only part of
being here that I don't like is that my family is still back in
I work very hard at a start-up during the week. It can be a bit
intense, so I really try to ensure I make the most of my weekends.
I like to be outside (often with my dog), read, catch up with my
friends over dinner or drinks, discover new music, and check out
new places (locally or not).
I am at a point in my life where I genuinely appreciate the simple
things and am confident in who I am. It's a really happy place to
be! I love to laugh and I find endless sources of humor in the
everyday (including laughing at myself). I also love funny movies /
shows / stand-up. While I can be pretty silly once I feel relaxed
around a person, I definitely come off as being more serious /
reserved when I am just getting to know someone.
I'm looking for someone who sees the glass half full, has a great
sense of humor, and likes intelligent conversation as much as
talking about nothing important. Most critical though are honesty,
mutual respect, and communication. I believe these are the
foundation of any type of relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living it. Trying to find balance between work, family, friends,
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening. Math. Finding the good in people.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Family and friends
2. My dog (awesome German Shepherd that I rescued)
5. Seeing the ocean every day
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Anything and everything. I can be a bit of an over-thinker
Wondering what lies ahead for me and how much of it will be
unexpected vs expected.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out to dinner and then home and in bed. If I'm really tired from
the week, maybe just a movie at home by myself or with a friend.
Clearly, pretty wild and crazy stuff going on here.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love Barry Manilow songs.
