Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This one goes out all the brainy lovers out there in radio land...
(If you're not in a nerdy mood please skip the following). The
science of why online dating kind of sucks/is kind of amazing:
Looking for someone interesting and interested. Enthusiastic even?
We live in a first world nation with clean water and amazing toilet
paper. Let's get pumped up. If you've been to Bolivia, you know
what I'm talking about.
There's a lot out there and adventure in the blood is a good thing.
Interested in going to Burma, or at least this Burmese restaurant I
keep hearing about in E. Los Angeles?
I like ideas. Maybe you have some we can talk about. And if one of
your ideas involves the best ice cream in LA, if not the
world...get yourself to Scoops pronto. CuminOrangeChocolate, I mean
the man is an ice cream genius.
Bottom line: if you're smart, are doing (or really want to do)
something extraordinary with your time here and are honestly funny,
let's talk. Are you teaching lemurs to solve quadratic equations in
the name of furthering social justice? I'm down to help. You feel
like helping me transform the way kids eat? Cool.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Planning a return to Africa. (Not permanently, just for another
adventure.) Running a small medical group, treating the sick,
stopping diabetes in its tracks. Punching boredom in the face with
the glove of awesomeness.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
building an extension on the garage, grilling a tasty chop,
starting a fire with my hands, paying (partially) for grad school
as a massage therapist back in the day (the clinical kind, not the
naughty kind.) Basically, I'm pretty good with my hands.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The Namesake, Sedaris, the russians, Lonely Planet, wonky technical
stuff, any reasonable magazine within reach-Wired, Harper's, and
when they create a 25 hour day, I'll get back to the Economist and
the New Yorker.
This American Life. Radiolab. Dinner Party.
Music is broad. But I'm just going to go ahead and say it. If the
only thing you love involves banjos, this might be a sticking
point. I'm down for some good banjo, but in the hands of Mumford,
or is it one of his alleged sons... (It's a mandolin you say?
Sorry, I've already changed the station). When did we forget
everything our godfather JB taught us?
Snatch, Ken Burns, Archer.
30 Rock, TED Talks, a friend got me into Game of Thrones- I got
through most of it. The League - it's childish. I like it. Overall,
not much TV in my life.
Except this whole House of Cards thing. Have you heard of it? I
hear it's going to be big one day.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music- and trying to recreate it poorly on the guitar. We're
getting the band back together (someday).
Laughter- improv makes me laugh. (I rarely perform, I won't improv
at you, I promise).
Freedom- a credit card swipe and you're on another continent, and
the other kind of freedom that let's you think for yourself.
Smart Talk- using brain = sexy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
when I will take kiteboarding lessons.
The next steps to take to fix the food of LAUSD kids.
Bulldogs and boxers jumping on trampolines.
What my editor is going to want to change on my latest draft.
Cutting an album just for fun and checking it off of the bucket
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
finishing a book I'm writing, at the gym, unwinding from a long
week, or catching up with friends and taking in all LA has to
offer. (Well not all of it, that's a bit pretentious sounding,
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I thought Lou Ferrigno was named Louf Errigno... He looked like
someone that could be named Louf. I was younger then.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you know the earth is smaller than the sun. Much smaller. You want
to be like Charles and Ray Eames (but more outdoorsy), or Bonnie
and Clyde (but less murdery), or Barack and Michelle (but only the
awesome parts), you know, like root beer floats and bacon cheese
burgers, they are great on their own and don't need anyone, but
together, holy cow, they are unstoppable. (I eat a lot of
vegetables, don't worry)
