Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a hybrid jock/band nerd. I spend my days doing laps around the
Bay Area fixing things, riding my bike, playing/teaching music, and
chasing pucks around rinks.
Please don't judge me because I live in Fremont. I have nothing in
common with this place. I settled here because it's sort of the
half way point between all the places I need to be at on a regular
Okay, fine. I do have a few good friends here. Elizabeth Park is
nice, Niles Canyon is cool and there's a hockey rink here. I don't
hate you, Fremont, I'd just much rather be living in Alameda where
there's pinball, a beach, and a tiki lounge.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Making the most of my time on this planet while I'm still able. So
should you. No seriously - life is super short. I'm doing my
damnedest to make sure that if I died tonight, I could look back
and be satisfied with what I'd learned and accomplished. Here's
what you don't want:
"Here lies So-and-So. They watched a lot of TV and died with many
I think the point is to not ever finish EVERYTHING on your bucket
list but to always have a list that you're constantly
This concludes the "personal philosophical meanderings" portion of
the online dating profile.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Wearing myself out. Not wearing shirts. Smoothies. Giving super
great advice to others that I don't always necessarily follow
myself. Geddy Lee falsetto. Buying comic books and forgetting to
read them. Air drumming on my bike. Opening doors with my feet.
Playing trumpet while driving. Remembering names. Facial hair.
The first things people usually notice about me

My winning smile? Whichever fabulous chapeau I happen to be donning
that day? The lightning bolts on my arms? My huge tits?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't read nearly as much as I would like but my bookcase does
feature the following authors: Mark Twain, Chuck Palahniuk, Neal
Stephenson, Hunter S. Thompson, Roald Dahl, Hubert Selby Jr.,
Malcom Gladwell, Chris Hitchens and Douglas Adams. I'm also a big
fan of biographies and anything to do with sociology.
Movies: Terry Gilliam, David Fincher, David Lynch, Tim Burton,
Stanley Kubrick. Steven Spielberg and I'm a huge nerd for anything
Aliens or Hellraiser. (I know, my Y chromosome is showing.)
Music: Among my absolute favorites: Frank Zappa, Moxy Früvous,
Blind Guardian, KMFDM, Queen, The Romantic Era, anything with brass
or Mike Patton.
TV: Sucks...but I'll admit to watching Archer, The Golden Girls and
the occasional hockey game.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hockey bag (and its contents)
These foods: peanut butter, bananas and avocados
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Protein, stretching, cycling gear, how to get the dogs in my head
to stop barking, the effects of alcohol on the body, population
control, how to be a better jazz musician, what to do about the
rampant misuse of the apostrophe in our society, why Parker Lewis
only lasted 3 seasons, what people used to talk about before
Facebook, how Prometheus could have been a better movie, future
tattoos, stuff, things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There's no such thing as a typical Friday Night. I'm self employed
so every night has the potential to be just like any other. I could
be playing hockey. I could be at a gig. I could be fixing machines.
I could be getting to bed early for a bike ride the next morning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I could sing you most of Rockstar by Nickelback. Let me explain: I
go into a lot of shitty bars to fix jukeboxes and pool tables and
such and that song used to ALWAYS be playing. It beat down my
neuro-musical filters over time and eventually took root in my
