Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in South Florida, but my favorite place I've lived so far
has been Spring Green, Wisconsin. That said, after three years in
Texas I moved to Seattle in early 2008 and continue to be
completely enamored with it. This is such an amazing place we have
here! So, the good news is I'm not planning on going anywhere
I'm rather free-spirited and like to think that I'm without limits,
but that's only partially true. I don't eat mammals.
I find humor in everything. I take the Toaist approach: Everything
is sacred, and therefore nothing is sacred.
I embrace my imperfection, but don't judge - I'm working on
I share a birthday with F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jim Henson, Phil
Hartman, and Linda McCartney.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other
I had a really great summer which entailed: taking the train to
Glacier Nat'l Park for a wild bachelor party rafting trip, spent
four days canoeing Lake Ross in the North Cascades, watched orcas
frolic offshore on San Juan island, biked from Seattle to
Vancouver, completed a design/build project with my friends, and
experienced unlimited fun at Burning Man.
I'm taking it down a notch this winter, but am eager to find new
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm going to call this "I have alot of interests" instead. These
include but are not limited to: Producing Art and Architecture,
recycling, trees, clouds, Yoga, my bike. I have a particular
fondness for avocado on whole wheat toast, loose leaf tea, locally
brewed beer, growing plants, playing my guitar, taking baths,
investigating new concepts and ideas, photography, national parks,
roadside curiosities, and I like to write about my experiences as I
am propelled through the universe. I'm also really good at zombie
make-up, and unabashedly so.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Someone once described me as "I'm like your best friend upon
meeting me" and I liked that. What he meant (I think) is that I'm
open and interested in new people - nothing thrills me more than
welcoming someone new into my life.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books! I love books, and I try to buy one every month which means
I'm running low on shelf space. I generally prefer non-fiction, and
love a good travelogue. Lately I've been reading a lot of Bill
Bryson. I also seem to buy a lot of glossy-paged architecture
Movies! I veer toward films that generally offer something
different or are challenging. I'm not a big fluff guy when it comes
to movies. That said, I'll see anything with Michael Cera. I don't
collect movies, and get mostly everything from the library. I know
its not a movie, but lately I've been getting through the entire
series of The Wire and Big Love. I will watch any HBO series. They
are all most excellent.
Music! There is so much great music going on right now! And, being
in Seattle allows me the opportunity to see some of my favorites on
stage. In the last year I saw Arcade Fire, Sufjan, Belle &
Sebastian, Scissor Sisters, Yo La Tengo, Bright Eyes, Janelle
Monae, Fleet Foxes, Feist, tUnE-yArDs, and Zepparella - an all-lady
Led Zeppelin tribute band, and I have been to the symphony several
times in the last year. Looking forward to a myriad of artists
coming this fall. I have a varied taste but more of a rock-n-roller
than a pop diva. I wish Thom Yorke and gang would spend a summer
Food! I love food. And I love cooking. I'm a wok master. Among
other things. And I love trying new restaurants.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Dreaming about my next trip somewhere
the hope for a better tomorrow
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...if that crazy man didn't murder John Lennon, and if John would
have devoted himself to hip-hop. It's devastating that we'll never
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...pondering how I might conquer the world.
Or, grabbing a bite to eat, hanging out with friends, movie,
typical Friday night shenanigans.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't really speak Urdu, I was just checking to make sure you
were paying attention.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...I grab your attention, by all means grab mine.
I'm not taking this all too seriously, but could be arm twisted
into getting a drink.
