My self-summary
I just moved here from Ohio but try not to hold that against me...

In a good place👌

I grew up in Columbus, OH but I moved to LA about three months ago to pursue my career. I know I haven't been here long but it's been long enough to know I made the right choice. I'm a lead designer for a toy company and I can't believe I didn't move out here sooner (better late than never). I'm loving every second of it.
I'm always up for new experiences and new adventures. That's why I love this city so much. There's so much to do 🙌

I'm an avid soccer player, golfer, movie buff, foodie, and beach bum (already). I love almost all different types of music. I play guitar and love to sing as well. Lately I've been on something of a folk kick and have been teaching myself a lot of different songs. Don't worry though, I never force playing music onto people unless they ask. I promise I'm not the "guitar guy" at a party begging for attention...

I really enjoy trying new restaurants and new cuisines. My tastes tend to change a lot and I tend to go through waves of craving one food in particular over others. (Right now I'm pretty hung up on sushi). The "trust me" at Sugarfish anyone?? Soooo gooood. If you share this opinion we may be soulmates... I also love me some craft beers and/or some red wine with a side of Netflix every now and then too (Id be lying if I said I didn't have my down time).

I'm pretty simple. Just looking for someone to explore LA with/ eat sushi with/Netflix with...

I know these are all subjective so it feels a little too much like bragging but I guess since I have the floor...

My right hand is pretty important, but body parts aside:

Family/friends/females (that gets bundled)
Movies
A pen and paper
Sushi
Iced coffee
Food trucks
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ok what am I doing now??
On a typical Friday night I am
Oh idk, probably out to dinner or a show with friends. Maybe some dive or karaoke bars. Maybe even some doing of nothing... I'm not a creature of habit.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I never learned to 'properly' tie my shoes. I still lace up 'double bunny ears' style.
