Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to think I've got my life together... sometimes it takes a
bit of energy to make me move, but once I get going it is hard to
stop me. Aside from that, I don't say much unless it's worth
hearing, but thankfully I have a million stories; they're all true,
and they're all worth hearing...
I have been indirectly struck by lightening.
I've given a growling black bear a piggy back ride.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a design engineer in the marine industry. I love that I can be
creative and design beautiful things using my brain as well as use
my hands to see them built.
Also, I spend a lot of my free time making wine, or reading about
making wine. Compared to my fast paced career, It lets me slow down
and work with freedom and precision. And after months of hard work
and patience, the only better reward than tasting something
beautiful is sharing it with people and seeing that smile when they
realize "holy shit its good!".
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can cook... If you don't believe me then let me show you...
I can ski... I used to race on the downhill ski team... I still ski
like its my job, but not nearly as much as I'd like to.
I can fish... I was raised with a rod in my hand lol... and now my
father has even started his own charter service leading trips
throughout NYS. Sometimes I lend a hand if needed, so like us on
I can fix anything... even if it isn't broken
Also really good at:
- Recovering my dignity after making a fool of myself publicly and
- Speaking to cops... we laugh, we joke, talk about the musical
prowess of Journey, then they forget about why they came.
- Cleaning up nice ;)
- Being modest.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes, my baby face >:( , and an excited black lady once told
me I had some "tasty looking mancakes" when I walked out of a
dressing room... it kinda made my day/week/month/life :P
Also, I'm no giant (6'2" 210lbs), but people often comment that I
am large in stature...

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Distractions... sometimes I like to forget about the world and
just lose myself. A good motorcycle ride through the Adirondacks
usually helps :P
2) Creative Freedom... I can never be happy somewhere if I can not
have be creative.
3) Opportunity to grow... I will never allow myself to be
4) Patience... people often mistake my patience for a lack of
ambition, but forcing things to change before they are meant to is
5) A sharp Kitchen Knife... nothing hurts my soul more than trying
slice through a tomato with a dull blade :P
6) The ability to make my own rules... I'm no rebel, but ultimately
I am in charge of me.
7) My Jeep, Aldo... we've been together since I was 17... she never
let me down , never left me stranded, and was always ready to
escape when I needed to get away. Shes off the road now but soon
she will be back in shape and ready to roll :)
PS - I know 7 is more than 6, see item 6 for explanation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm no big fish just yet, but I'm ready to find a not so small
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working late, in bed early, relaxing at home, out with friends,
watching Friday change to Saturday, doing something productive! It
varies a lot!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I will give in to the weakness and order a fruity frozen
cocktail if i don't think anyone will know... but that shame burns
deep anytime anyone makes eye contact with me :(
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-You don't constantly go running off to chase waterfalls... I like
to stick to rivers and likes that I'm used to.
-You're not hanging out the side of your best friends ride trying
to holler at me.
If you message me, I won't be hasty... I'll give you a try. But, if
you bug me then I'll say goodbye.
