Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So about myself... I'm someone who is always looking for
excitement. That could be through traveling to a new country and
exploring without a plan, or even at home by learning a new
language or playing music: anything as long as it's
I love learning new things, weather I'm good at them or not. I've
studied Japanese, finished an Ironman and play three instruments -
although only one well ;) Now I'm studying Chinese and focusing on
my photography. I also love traveling to new places, which recently
included Nepal and Scandinavia and a pile of other places as I
spent the last three years traveling the world. Of course I also
love meeting new people, so send me a message even if it's just to
I am over educated (I don't mean that as a boast only that I spent
too much time and money in school!), which is a result of my liking
school too much or work too little. I used to be a lawyer in New
York City, but gave up that career to become a writer. You can

Just arrived in Paris so I'm looking for some new friends and
romance in the city of lights. Hope to hear from you soon!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Something new every day. I spend a lot of time focused on travel
and photography and writing about my experiences. For example, a
couple summers ago I biked across Europe and last year I trekked to
Mt. Everest. Both great trips and I've been lucky to have
On a more mundane level I'm a reformed corporate lawyer, I used to
work in finance but decided to return to school and study law. I'm
now focused on my writing and photography.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I hate questions like this. Do I brag and say things like "doing
720s on a snowboard while blindfolded" and "telekinesis" or keep it
humble and say "making grilled cheese" and "tying my shoes"?
In all honesty, I'm not sure I'm "really good" at anything. I'm
decent at a few things though. They include writing, playing piano
and guitar, speaking foreign languages, biking and photography. As
a side note I suck at spelling.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm friendly and outgoing. Soon after that people tend to notice
that I'm essentially stress free and seem to completely lack a
temper of any kind.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I daydream about all kinds of things... travel, love, beaches... or
when I'm feeling intellectual quantum mechanics, metaphysics,
harmonic analysis, tort law reform...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends, unless I'm traveling the world or home being a
nerd; both of which happen surprisingly often.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Despite traveling the globe solo, I don't really like to be alone.
