NJ born & raised, lived in LA for a bit during grad school,
then NYC, now back in LA. Hey, I like the coasts, what can I say.
Have a fairly diverse set of interests (reading, cars, movies,
outdoorsy stuff, business/news/politics, etc). I'm a fairly easy
going person, have a sense of humor, etc.
Absolutely love snowboarding, been riding for over 15 years.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in strategy/business development at a tech company.
Otherwise, just getting settled back out here in LA, lots of long
bike rides down to Redondo Beach, flag football, kickball,
volleyball, hiking, just being outdoors a bunch.
I’m really good at
I'm told I have a lot of useless knowledge, I think that's a
I'm also good at making conversation with random people in random
places. I'm not too bad at diagnosing automotive issues. A friend
of mine has coined me the 'car whisperer.'
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm outgoing and friendly. At least that's what I assume, I
don't usually stop talking long enough to let them get a word out.
Just kidding about that last part... mostly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I try to pick up some random used books at The Last Bookstore
whenever I'm in DTLA, so I'm currently reading a collection of
books on philosophy, some of which are really strange and out of
Movies: Jurassic Park, Shawshank Redemption, Die Hard (all 4), Back
to the Future Trilogy, Dark Knight Trilogy, Office Space, Bad Santa
and many many many more. I'm definitely a movie junky.
TV: Law & Order, Sons of Anarchy, Shark Tank, The Office,
Always Sunny, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Last Resort, Burn Notice,
Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, Fringe to name a few. Ok,
maybe a few more than a few.
In regards to music, I like alternative, rock, dance/techno, some
pop, some hip-hop.
I love food. All 4 basic food groups of course: mexican, italian,
indian & thai.
The six things I could never do without
My snowboard (I've owned my current snowboard for over 15 years,
still going strong!), good coffee, some friends to hang out with or
family to spend time with (especially my baby niece), movies to
watch, cars to drive, something to type thoughts or ideas onto
(have good ideas at the most random of times).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All sorts of random things. I'm definitely a thinker. Business,
politics, the economy, pop culture, people, where the world is
going, when Arrested Development is coming back, which movie to
watch next, when's my next travels and to where.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends, whether at a bar or catching a movie.
Every now and then stay in and unwind from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like talking in accents, Scottish in particular.
You should message me if
If you have a passion for life, yet don't take it too seriously. If
you are down to earth, but can think on a higher level.
