Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Started out in VERY rural upstate New York. It seems like I've been
moving around ever since. It looks like I'll be staying put for a
I spent four years in Boston working in a bunch of different fine
dining restaurants. Ended up taking the helm of a french bistro for
a couple of years. Decided it was time for an adventure. So I moved
out to Denver. My sister and her family have lived here for a
pretty long time. It's been nice to be around them for a
I am a pretty big hockey fan. I grew up playing it every winter on
a pond behind my grandparents farm. It turned into a family event
most years. (Those were the good ole days). I don't think I could
ever live in a city that didn't have an NHL team present.
I'm not much of a party person, I usually stay pretty low-key. I
avoid drama like the plague. I like going to movies, museums, art
galleries, theatre shows, concerts. Doing stuff outdoors is always
fun. I've recently gotten more into building things.
So far I have;
-worked/lived at Disney World (college program 2007)

I haven't yet;

-made it to every country in Europe
-published a novel
-learnt how to play the cello
-figured out how to ballroom dance

Any help on completing the above would be appreciated.
I'm an ISTP for what it's worth. Some people have actually asked me
in the past.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for a catering company, mainly prepping for parties in their
warehouse. I do a few events though. Trying to work on getting my
own restaurant out of the clouds and up and running.
I’m really good at

Ok, serious answer; probably the tattoos. I'm working on getting
full sleeves. And I'm tall.

I love all food. I could make pasta by hand every single day and be
happy. Usually with a rolling pin and not a pasta roller, but
everybody has their lazy days.

I took the liberty of not naming the basic needs for survival.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Whether to get a dog

-The cooking of previously mentioned food. And the odd combinations

delicious. (SPAM Ravioli was not a success...)
On a typical Friday night I am
