Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a fantastic time with my life, and I want to share it with
someone great. Friends tell me I'm a down-to-earth guy, and I like
to think I've figured out how to stay young and happy. I spend a
lot of time outside of work staying active, giving back, and
I moved to San Francisco four years ago after leaving management
consulting for the finance gig I wanted. It's been a good trade: I
get into and leave work early instead of going to a different city
every week, and I have the chance to work hard without sacrificing
I like smart, independent girls who know (and like) who they are.
I'll do anything once; if I like it, I’ll do it again. If you’re
the same way, I'll bet we’d be good together :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I stay fit, give time to causes I care about (adoption, education,
helping San Francisco's less fortunate become self-sufficient) and
tackle the challenges I’ve set out for myself (CrossFit and rock
climbing). During the day, I’m a financial analyst at a bank--I
help investors make money by telling them what stocks to buy and
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a redhead--guess what they see first? I've been told that I
have some intangible quality that "intrigues" people too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Many (I like to read)...just finished Coehlo's "The
Movies: Anything that makes me look at things differently (The
Pursuit of Happyness is a good example)
Shows: I don't watch much TV, but I'll make time on Sunday night
for Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, or Homeland
Music: Eclectic stuff (I've been told that I have the best, most
diverse iTunes ever), but I'm bent toward jazz
Food: Just about anything (in moderation)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Unique personal style (my first dream job was (and still is)
Editor of Esquire magazine...I'm working on it)
2) My road bike, cycling shoes, and Saturday/Sunday mornings to
3) My CrossFit shoes and 90 minutes to use them
4) Sports Basement (my happy place)
5) Dogpatch Boulders/Mission Cliffs
6) Whole Foods/Trader Joe's (whichever is closer)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what vacation I want to take and which country will have the good
fortune to stamp my passport next (China, I think you're up;
Thailand, you're probably on deck)
what restaurant in SF I want to try
how the stock market's going to move (just during working hours)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
catching up with friends over dinner, rock climbing, or just
chilling at home. I'm more of a Saturday morning guy, so a late
Friday night's gotta be really, really good to get me interested
(if there's a good act at SF Jazz, I'm in).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm up at 4:00 am Monday through Friday, and I don't need coffee.
