Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
At my core, I am an uncomplicated guy that enjoys experiencing new
things and meeting new people. From rock climbing to goat herding,
I've done a little bit of everything and have been fortunate to
enjoy most of those experiences.
My interests are equally as diverse. I am just as likely to sit at
my computer and play online games as I am cooking out with my
friends and playing football in the backyard or in the park. My
rule of thumb is that if I haven't done it and it looks like fun, I
might as well give it a whirl.
Challenges excite me. Friendly competition and the people I meet
through it always brings a smile to my face. I may not always
succeed, but I know to learn from and find the humor in my own epic
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a direct care worker at a community based residential facility
run by the Volunteers of America. I find the work very rewarding
because I get to help my clients come into their own and reach
their goals as they progress through their therapy.
This job keeps me very busy. I primarily work 2nd and 3rd shifts
plus every other weekend. But it helps me enjoy and appreciate the
free time I have and the people with whom I spend it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...making people laugh. I'm no comedian, and I won't tell corny
jokes (unless you ask), but it's nice to be able to share a little
chuckle with another person. It helps break the ice and usually
leads to interesting conversations.
I've also been known to be able to make tasty meals from random
ingredients in the fridge. Who knew that rice, ketchup, and tabasco
could make a passable Spanish Rice?
The first things people usually notice about me

...is the beat up St. Louis Superbowl Championship cap that I'm
usually wearing. Not only is it odd to see in the middle of Packer
country, but, since it was over a decade ago, it has made people
wonder how old I really am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite books are Catch-22, Fahrenheit 451, Brave New World,
and Island of the Blue Dolphins (a childhood favorite). I also
loved to read Dr. Seuss to my best friend's youngest son.
My favorite movies tend to fluctuate with my mood. I tend to
gravitate toward quirky sci-fi and horror. However, I always love
to watch "It's a Wonderful Life" no matter what the season. It
reminds me that every person's life is significant, no matter how
insignificant you may feel.
Musically I am all over the map. But if you love Cowboy Mouth and
Journey, you and I can become fast friends.
Foodwise, I'm am definitely not picky. However, I love to cook out
and I've been told that my steak and burger grilling skills are
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Family--We may not live in the same state, but we are a great
source of strength for each other.
2. Friends--They are my family that doesn't share my
3. The Internet--for work and for play, of course
4. Football--playing it and watching it on Sunday
5. My iphone--It's my always on/always there connection to things
6. Hope--For a better tomorrow; another chance for me to make the
world a better place than it was previously.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...inspirational speeches and quotes. My current favorite is this,
"It is better to light a single candle than to curse the darkness."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...working. My play days are every other Saturday and Sunday when
I'm not working for Volunteers of America.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I have a surprisingly low alcohol tolerance for a guy.
