Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an easy going, open minded, intellectually curious guy who
loves music, books, art, food (vegetarian), wine, coffee, travel
and more. I am originally from the midwest (Milwaukee) and have
also lived in Denver (6 years) and Barcelona (2 years). I have now
lived in Portland for a little over 5 years and love it here. My
maternal grandparents were born and raised in Italy and I want to
retire there, if everything goes right. I like going to funky, high
quality restaurants and lounges (Observatory, Sapphire Hotel, Horse
Brass, Victory, etc.). I am pretty open to trying anything once,
but they must have a decent veggie menu. I am vegetarian but do eat
dairy and some seafood. I have both a Bachelor's degree
(Accounting) and an MBA (Strategy and International Business),

Hmmm, well I love all types of music, mostly with an alternative
twist, including: Rock, jazz, world, bluegrass, folk, classical,
choral, experimental, etc. Popular overplayed stuff is mostly out.
I love movies and lean towards Indie films but I love some more
traditional movies like: Pink Panther films (especially A Shot in
The Dark), Once, Trading Places, About a Boy, Waking Ned Devine,
Happy Go Lucky, Spirited Away, Slumdog Millionaire, and more. I
love literature/books and my tastes are all over the place. I am
vegetarian and love to cook (I am a very good cook). My favorite
foods are Italian, Indian, Mexican and Middle Eastern.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Food (well cooked and prepared)
Water (Lakes, rivers, oceans...)
Sun - doesn't have to be always but I need it's rays just to soak
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I might go out for dinner or a few cocktails with friends, but if I
do stay in I like to watch stand-up comedy on Comedy Central.
