Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in Acapulco, Mexico, SoCal, and a small town in North
Carolina, though I’ve spent more time in DC than in any of those
places. I love music and art and I try to catch a few shows every
month. I enjoy walking around the city’s museums without a care in
the world. I'm also trying to build a little art collection (mostly
prints now but hopefully there will be more original art soon and
maybe, just maybe, I'll start getting more of my collection
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I joined the Air Force right out of high school and I spent six
years doing IT work in DC, Colorado Springs and beautiful Kabul.
After I finished my commitment I moved back here and started doing
contract work for the government. I recently started a job with a
law firm so that is a pretty big change for me.
I occasionally volunteer at a children's writing center helping the
children to write more gooder.
I ran my first marathon last year; I was on track to run Chicago
this year but injuries kept that from happening, there's always
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

receivers are a standard feature in phones now.

I get compliments on a few pairs of glasses (I have six) that I own
and people still grab my arms to look at my tattoos on random
occasions (please don't do this, you can just ask).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The Count of Monte Cristo is my favorite novel; it’s the greatest
revenge tale and I’m due for a re-read soon. I don't read as much
as I'd like to, but I do try to finish a novel or two a month. I
usually tend to choose my next novel by jacket/cover art which is a
shitty way to pick books.
I'm really into artsy films and stupid movies. Some of my favorites
are: American Werewolf in London, Le Samourai, Memento, It Happened
One Night, The Jerk, Pierrot Le Fou, Eternal Sunshine of the
Spotless Mind, Dr. Strangelove, The Royal Tenenbaums, and City
These are some of the TV shows I’m into: Parks and Recreation
(RIP), Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Louie, Archer, Children's
Hospital, and Bob's Burgers.
I mostly listen to the indie-type musics. I tend to buy my music on
vinyl nowadays. Some of the bands that I tend to go back to are
Arms, The Libertines, Neutral Milk Hotel, Okkervil River, Wye Oak,
The National, Sunset Rubdown, and Why? I'm always on the lookout
for new stuff so feel free to tell me what you¹re currently
I love food so much that I eat it every day.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A, E, I, O, U, and sometimes Y.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Food. What stupid thing I'm going to get as a tattoo next. Puppies
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
going to a concert, vegging out, at a bar, with friends, watching a
movie, wrestling with bears at gay bars, partying, saving puppies
from burning buildings, playing pinball, leaving bars once cover
bands start playing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was a kid I used to pit my animal crackers in battles
against each other to find the strongest and thus most delicious
cracker. I might still do this.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You'd like to catch a concert or a movie. If you'd enjoy a nice
walk in a park and maybe a picnic. If you have a dog or cat and
would like to talk about how awesome they are. If you'd like to
join me for a night at the opera or to a show at a theater (or
theatre if you wanna get fancy). If you're my arch-nemesis. If
you'd like to grab a drink. Or maybe six.
