Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a "retired" political consultant who's been living on the road
for the past 5 years. After moving from state to state for so long,
I'm ready to settle down in NYC or the area and focus on my
I love to laugh, and to make others laugh - because without humor,
what's the point?
When the weather is crappy, I love to curl up with a good book,
watch a movie or play a game of Qwirkle or Scrabble. There's also a
good chance I'm doing three things while "watching" TV.
When the weather is good, just try and catch me inside; I'd much
rather be out riding my bike, going for a hike, hanging out on the
beach or just lounging in a nearby park.
I never try to mask who I am, or judge others for being
I love my friends and family, and I would do anything to help them
in a time of need.
I'm a good listener and a great problem solver, though I'm not good
at talking about myself, which is why the last few sentences have
taken WAY too long to write. I'm going to end with my favorite
quote, but before I do that, let me just say that if you're looking
for the kind of guy around whom you can just let loose, hang out
and be yourself, then I'm your man. I'd love to get to know you,
share some laughs, and see what happens.
Here goes the quote I promised:
"To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intellingent
persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of
honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to
appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's

a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and
laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Professionally, I've been working as a political campaign
professional, helping democrats get elected. That's forced me to
move every 8 months for the last 5 years, so I'm walking away from
Confession: The 'retired' status is a little misleading. No, I
didn't strike it rich in politics, and I'm not spending my 30s
lounging on the french riviera. I'm currently a first year law
student in the city. Once that's done, I'll be back in the game,
working even harder to make things better for as many people as I
What I'm really doing is settling down in NYC so I can be close to
my family and friends, and building from there.
Update: School is done, and I've passed the bar. I'm working as an
attorney for the state doing affordable housing work. The hours are
good and the work is rewarding, so I'm a pretty happy camper.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh. Solving other people's problems. Listening.
Riding my bike long distances. Lounging on the beach. Talking to
strangers. Writing incomplete sentences. Reading. Tetris.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My smartphone - I hate it sometimes, but there's no doubt I'm
My friends - do they count as 'things?'
Laughter - this is a ridiculous world we live in, and you can
either laugh or cry about it. I choose the former.
I think that's it, but if I come up with something else, I'll be
sure to let y'all know.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I can tell you that I've spent way too much time thinking about
this question. I don't know, I think about a lot of things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out, in, who knows? If something's going on, I'm down to do it, but
I'm equally happy settling in for a quiet night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My primary goal is life is to get Carl Kasell's voice on my home
answering machine. I also have a really absurd irrational fear, but
I'm not sharing that on here - you've gotta ask.
