Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I enjoy a good sense of humor, passion, and a warm-hearted
personality, yet I display none of these characteristics. I like
outdoorsy things and indoorsy things. I'm left-handed, that counts
for something, right? I don't know, what else you want know?
Like anyone, I have my faults. But I am committed to living in
adherence to my values, which include being honest, and treating
all people with love and dignity.
I am currently residing in Baltimore, MD. I just moved here from
Spokane, WA. Before that I lived in DC for about 15 years. Not
exactly sure if I am permanently going to be living in Baltimore,
DC, or Annapolis (or some place around there).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for a large hospital group in Maryland. Other than that,
sharing time with great people, listening to music and friends.
Reading books, hiking, kayaking, exploring, driving, posting
pictures of landscapes, beers, and bars on Facebook, etc.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Arranging information into tables, playing guitar, putting myself
into new situations and making it work.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My punctuality. the severed hand. My Mona Lisa's smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like all sorts of food. Seriously, I'll try anything...
So lately I have just been reading public health books. Notable
ones are Plagues and People, Partner to the Poor: A Paul Farmer
Reader, The Demon Under the Microscope, and the Checklist Manifesto
by Atul Gawande. Otherwise, it's a mixture of fiction and
non-fiction. I try to keep up with whatever Salman Rushdie is doing
at any given moment. Tom Robbins or Stephen King are fun reading
for me. Yes, Stephen King. People seem to have a problem with that.
I will defend my position if you want to hash it out. I also am
heavily into Game of Thrones right now.
As for music, I'm into a lot, and I could rattle off names, but I
won't. If I had to pick one, I'd pick the minutemen (that's like,
my "if I had to pick one album" I'd pick one of theirs). I like
some pop stuff, but I'm a big classic rock fan/nerd. I could probly
tell you more about Frank Zappa than anyone else. i also like
feeding my younger punk rock side, and it can get weirder after
that. My favorite singer right now is Mirah.
I like comedy movies mostly, but I'll pretty much watch anything.
Love TV and movies a lot.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
to paraphrase Townes Van Zandt
1) legs to walk
2) thoughts to fly
3) eyes to laugh
4) lips to cry
5) a restless tongue to classify
6) a toothbrush (note: not part of a Townes Van Zandt song)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The six things I could never do without, plus my family and my
friends. Work. Cetacean intelligence. What to read, what I'm
reading, whether or not this food has gone bad...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home. Or out to a show. Or dinner. Or a movie. Or camping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love to watch Big Brother. Seriously though, I'll admit anything.
