Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm kind of a regular dude. I get pretty passionate about some
stuff like my kid and my job, certain hobbies, maybe the occasional
I never want to go to bed and I never want to get up in the
I live pretty analog--still listen to CDs, no cable/internet at
home, no Facebook, I read paper books/magazines. I like
crafts--building models, whittling, painting rocks. I play a lot of
cards and board games. Simple life stuff.
I know I'm supposed to showcase how unique and exciting my life is
here, and I'm sure it is, but I'm kinda on this "everyday people"
kick these days, and I'm kind of ok with that.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Building and cultivating beautiful relationships with friends and
family, especially my daughter. I work a job I enjoy. I spend a lot
of time loitering--leaning against walls, sitting on benches,
people-watching. I perform in plays sometimes. I read short stories
and creative non-fiction, also the occasional novel. I swim a lot.
I really like camping and turning my phone off for a few days.
Sometimes i go out--I like live music, I like to get loose to a
good hip hop DJ. Regular stuff, mostly..
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people feel comfortable, telling jokes, performing, cooking
tacos and salsas, making friends, networking, public speaking,
tact, honesty, building camp fires, swimming, being a good Daddy.

Food: my specialties include good ol down-home recipes like chicken

pretty adventurous when I go out to eat, but i prefer eating at
home these days.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, fellowship, fresh air, cold beverages, tacos, music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Growth and legacy are always big themes. But I also get on kicks
where I spend a lot of time researching, thinking and talking about
some random topic. Lately that's been the housing market,
gentrification, urban sprawl. And also James Brown for some reason.
He was a bad dude.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing at home, watching a play, performing in a production, out
dancing, or staying up too late with friends solving the problems
of the world over a cup of coffee.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I know all the lyrics to Sondheim's 'Company'
